When stocking an RV kitchen, prioritizing multi-purpose and basic cooking supplies will keep the limited cupboard space uncluttered. Check out our list for tried-and-true essential camping cooking tools.
There’s something about cooking over a campfire that enhances flavour and adds to the enjoyment. To make campfire cooking a breeze, be sure to pack along roasting sticks for sausages and marshmallows, a good sized cast iron skillet that can sit on the campfire grate, foil for wrapping up foil-pack dinners, and a good pair of tongs with heat-proof handles.
When it comes to choosing food prep items, think basic and multipurpose. Pack a couple medium sized mixing bowls, a large mixing spoon, cutting board that suits your available counterspace, a large chef’s knife and small paring knife, and storage containers that do double duty as prepped ingredient storage as well as leftovers storage.
With limited stove space in an RV, you certainly don’t need a full set of pots and pans. Pack only the size you use the most, usually something medium-sized. Also handy to have are a strainer, can opener, metal skewers, cheese grater, flipper, kettle, and whatever you need to brew your morning coffee.
If you prefer to cook outside rather than in your RV’s kitchen, set yourself up with a good camp stove and portable BBQ.
