What Makes Cookware Fit For Good Camping?

May 16, 2008
The moment you go camping with the family you must be sure about the fact that the cookware you take with you is fit for the camping trip you are about to take. There is nothing worse then finding out, at the camping site, while preparing dinner, that you cookware you took with you is not fit for the job. There are a few things cookware should have, before we can call them fit for camping.

It should be Usable

When you are on a camping trip the one thing you do not want is that things are to complicated, this also applies to the cookware you take with you. It should be usable and easy. You should be able to use cookware for more then one purpose, a bowl, if it is shallow enough, could be used as a bowl but also as a plate to eat from. Or silverware that doubles as a fork and a spoon. So if you are going out to shop for, new, cookware these are the properties you should look for in the first place.

Lasting a lifetime

Your cookware should be durable, you do not want to buy cookware for every trip you go on. Cookware is something you want to keep re-using every camping trip you go on. Think about what the cookware is going to endure while your on your trip, it going to get packed in a tight space and will probable be handled roughly. So make sure that it is going to last you a lifetime.

Clean as a whistle

Have you ever been on a camping trip and ended up hating doing the dishes the most? We all have been there once at least, so you want your cookware to be easy to clean. Most times, if you like to camp in the rough, there is only some water, a bit of soap, if you are lucky. You need cookware that doesn't stain easily, but you also need to know how to protect your cookware while you are cooking.

You need to find a balance between, cheap, easy and durable. A problem, often, is that when you look at the price the easy and durable cookware caries you can get a little shock. But going to cheap can mean that your shopping for new cookware when the next trip is being planned. So you will need to find the right balance between these choices you have. A tip might be to go for the cheaper models on your first trip. Then you can test them for ease and usability and the ones you like but are not fit for another trip you can replace for a better and more durable model.

Always go to a special camping shop or outdoor specialist. You can expect to get good advice from those people as they want to see you again when you are planning for your next trip. They will have a wide range of cookware products for you to choose from, even for specific type of trips, going to high altitudes or polar expeditions, you name it.
