It is common for RVers to underestimate how much food they will need while packing their camping kitchens. After all, they are just going camping, so how much food could they possibly need? There will be more needs than you anticipate. Here are the things you should bring:
Pots, pans, plates, and cups
A large skillet with a lid, between 12 and 15 inches in diameter should be brought. If you cook vegetables in a small pot, you’ll have to be careful not to spill while stirring. Don’t be afraid to go gourmet when cooking outside. Life will be more fun if you do it!
- For 4 or more people, bring two pots of different sizes; usually, four to eight quarts will be sufficient. Stockpots or Dutch ovens – If you are cooking for four or more people, bring two pots of different sizes.
- Making salad dressing or storing leftovers is easy with mason jars with lids.
- A drinkware set
- The plates & bowls need to be stainless steel (or plastic if you use a microwave)
Knives, tools, and utensils
Cutting boards made of wood should be at least 12×8 inches (not plastic): Wood is more hygienic and easier to clean than plastic. You can clean your board by pouring boiling water over it and scrubbing it thoroughly.
- Knife for chefs or Santokus that is sharp
- Camping kitchens are incomplete without can openers!
- A closed wine bottle cannot be filled into those wine tumblers.
- This is great for thinly slicing veggies for salads such as carrots and cucumbers.
- A stainless nesting bowl with lids can be used to toss salads, and a smaller bowl is perfect for holding leftovers, dipping, or serving.
- Among the kitchen utensils are a wooden spoon, spatula, whisk, mixing spoon, tongs, and a large serving spoon
- You will need paper towel, food storage bags, foil, and saran wrap as basic supplies
- Eight-piece flatware set
A total of TEN kitchen towels (small and large): That’s right, TEN! Accidents happen, and there are usually no washing machines nearby when you have a spill!
- Spray that you love to use for cleaning
- A dish soap such as Dawn or a similar product
- There should be three bins for washing dishes and pans: one to soak in hot soapy water, one to wash in hot water, and one to rinse.
- Hands are protected with rubber gloves, so you will feel invincible with any kitchen mess you encounter while camping. Regardless of the mess, nothing will intimidate you.
- Large wipe-clean outdoor tablecloth for eight-foot tables
