Decades of Camping…
Have allowed me to refine my camp kitchen. Whether it be Tent, Van, Cabin, R.V. or Scout Troop camping. If Backpacking, a few items are chosen for a solo mess kit. All of my Camp Kitchen needs, and more fit into an old Rubbermaid file box, my Kitchen Box.
The Pots, Pans and Dishes
- Peak Stainless Steel Cookware and Dishes: Three cook pots, 3, 2 and 1.3 quart; four lid / fry pans 7”, 6”, 5” and 4½”; four 9” plates; two 6” plates; 6 cup / bowls with handles 6, 8 and 12 oz.; four soup / serve bowls; another 12 oz. coffee cup; four 2 oz. sauce cups; a tea ball.
- Stainless steel coffee pot, folding 11” fry pan; a S.S. strainer; a S.S. steamer; a steel spatula; a cooking / serving spoon; juicer/ mixer/ measurer; a box of utensils; a can opener; 4 kabob skewers; telescoping roasting forks; a ladle; a pot hook/ hanger; tongs; a cutting mat; 6 plastic nesting cups; shower cap bowl covers.

All in The Box 😀
- Place the pots, pans, and dishes stack in.
- Then the coffee pot (baggie of coffee, etc. can be stored inside)
- The steamer folds up, and fits nicely into the strainer, then they’re placed into the four bowls. (in front of the coffee pot)
- The Travel Brita filter fits inside the 40 oz. Juice Pitchers (lower right)
- The six plastic nesting cups fit into the 12 oz. coffee cup (left hand side)
- I then place the fanny pack of clotheslines, etc. into the bottom
- Then I lay the compact propane lanterns in case, on top of fanny pack
- The hammock in red bag goes on the cups in the corner
- Then fill in all the spaces… the cutting mat and tablecloth go in the lid.
Hints, Tips, and Tricks
- The I ❤ Love Scouting fanny pack is clipped around a tree. We string up the line, and the clothes pins are near. The shower rings are for hanging items with loops, mess kits, ditty bags, hats, etc.
- The juice pitchers, we freeze juice or water in for the ice chest. At camp we use them for many things, mixing, shaking, and storing food, We put them in water bottle carriers for foraging and blueberry picking. The lid is a pour spout, we just put the berries through the hole, with no fear of spilling.
- Fels Naphtha, use for: hand washing; washing off poison ivy oils; soaping the bottom of pots that are placed on the fire, it assists in clean up.
- Spray vinegar to use for: sunburn; wipe to disinfect the table and repel flies; clean fruits and veggies; spray on for flavor.
- We really do not use the camp toaster, we use pie irons, or the roasting forks but we carry it for those who want to try it out.
