6 Portable Cooking Equipment Pieces You Can Use for Outdoor Cooking

By leaving all your personal possessions behind and taking only what’s necessary, camping can be quite a liberating experience. However, there’s only a limited amount of food you can carry, so at a certain point, you’ll need to start making some meals. If you want to be fully prepared and make sure you’ll cook the food most suitable for camping purposes, you need to start with the appropriate cooking equipment. No matter if you’re a newbie to camping or you just want to renew your camping kitchen gear, here is a list of some of the portable cooking equipment which you can use for your next camping trip.

Camp stove

Since it’s primarily used to heat and boil water, an essential outdoor cooking item you need to take with you on your camping journey is a camp stove. Whether it’s a single or a dual camp stove, it’s one of the most popular camping equipment pieces out there. This is because a camp stove is very practical due to several reasons. Not only is a camp stove flexible as it operates on widely accessible fuel, but it is also permitted almost everywhere, even at times of most fire bans. Since they’re so lightweight and compact, camp stoves are easy to pack too.

Wok burner

Another essential cooking item you need in your camp kitchen, which is even better for outdoor cooking than a camp stove, is a wok burner. As opposed to indoor stoves, wok burners are made to generate a large amount of heat very quickly and thus they get to be heated up in a short period of time. This gives you the possibility to use cooking methods you typically couldn’t on an ordinary stove, like stir-frying, deep-frying, smoking, and steaming. Wok burners have many benefits for increasing the enjoyment of your overall camping experience. Since a wok burner is so lightweight, you can take it anywhere with you and, at the same time, be sure it’ll cook any type of meal. These types of burners can heat a strong carbon steel wok really quickly while providing an even source of heat underneath the rounded bottom of the wok, adding to a more effective cooking experience. Also, wok burners have adjustable knobs enabling you to cook with more precision and move from low heat to high temperatures.


It’s highly recommended that you choose the right cookware when you go camping. You will save your nice indoor cookware and make outdoor cooking so much more delightful. It isn’t necessary for you to spend a large amount of money, you just need a few pots and pans suitable for camping to begin. Among camping enthusiasts, cast iron is the most popular type of cookware. This is because cast iron is flexible, durable, retains heat, and allows even dispersion. For instance, a cast iron frying pan can be a valuable investment that you can use for different purposes like cooking meat, heating soup, and much more. Another worthy option can be a stainless steel pot.


Another great investment to make when going camping is dinnerware which is reusable. Rather than leaving paper cups, plates, and plastic utensils behind you on your campsite or trying to carry the indoor kitchen crockery with you, opt for reusable dinnerware instead. Also, sooner or later, you’ll realize that reusable dinnerware is quite affordable and will save you money in the long run.

Cooking utensils

Although you can manage eating outdoors with your bare hands, it’s not possible to do that with every single meal. That’s why you need to invest in some silverware. When you go camping, you may consider packing utensils like a ladle, a spatula, a cheese grater, a bottle opener, a colander, a pair of scissors, a tin opener, some sharp knives, and a cutting board. Another thing to consider is a 4-in-1 steel cutlery set that includes a spoon, a knife, a fork, and a bottle opener. This lightweight and compact item is designed in such a way that it comes apart when needed. This means that while in one hand you can hold the fork, you can split the set and take the spoon or knife in the other. Also, this set has a polished coating on all the utensils, which means food can’t get stuck so easily, making it easy to clean.

Collapsible water container

In order for you to be able to cook meals that include food like rice, pasta, and potatoes, it would be necessary to boil some water. That’s why you need to consider purchasing a collapsible water container that you can fill using a tap, and maintain your water supply needed for evening meals.

Hopefully, this article has given you insight into some of the essential portable cooking equipment pieces which will surely contribute significantly to your overall satisfaction with your next camping journey.
