I don’t know about anybody else but camping cookware has never been new cookware!
We always save the good cookware for home & use the old beat up stuff for camping!
However, looking at what’s available now & the fact that it’s not really that expensive, I’m thinking it’s time to reconsider!!
Check out these sets that are available for camping!
Titanium Cookware Sets:
Until this post I never knew there was cookware made from titanium!
There aren’t many listed on Amazon, however, the ones that are from Keith Titanium. They come with a guarantee of quality workmanship & a warranty against defects.
Keith Titanium is the only titanium distributor authorized by Amazon so I’m sure there are more titanium distributors out there. This item would be a good fit for people outside the US since they are manufactured overseas!
They feature silicone coating on the handles so they won’t be hot to the touch & because titanium is ecofriendly and non-toxic they are safe to use in any environment.
It is ultra-light, super strong & corrosion resistant so it will last for years of use!
Stainless Steel Cookware Sets:
Stainless Steel Cookware seems to be one of the most popular!
It is lightweight & stores easily. Most of the sets I looked at nest inside each other so they are very compact!
Can be used anywhere and on any surface whether that’s camp stove or open fire, stove top or conduction cooking surface!
Easy clean up makes it not only convenient but the durability ensures use for years whether cooking over a campfire or in the kitchen.
Aluminum Cookware Sets:
The Aluminum Cookware sets are really lightweight & compact!
They are easy to clean up & the handles fold around the pan so they can be stacked together for storage.
Very durable & most of the sets are very reasonably priced!
Whether you’re backpacking, camping or hiking these can be carried in a backpack & most come with utensils & at least 2 place settings of dishware, including glasses or cups!
Cast Iron Cookware Sets:
Personally this is my choice because I’m old & it’s what I grew up using, not only in the kitchen but camping as well.
Case Iron is a little more difficult to use. The sets I saw are preseasoned for use but they will stick if they aren’t seasoned correctly!
Correct seasoning is as follows: A lot of people will not use soap on cast iron because it will make them stick. I’m not one of those, however, so I use soap to wash them, then to properly season the cast iron I coat the bottom with salt & cook it until the salt turns brown. You will notice that it sticks in spots so use a spatula & move the salt around. When you have finished this process, oil the pan well & then store with oil on it. That keeps it seasoned & prevents rust.
I have people tell me I’m crazy because I love cast iron to cook with but once you get used to it its amazing how good the food tastes!
You can stack the cast iron pots & pans, however, please realize it’s a lot heavier than other cookware!
The advantage to cast iron is you can use it to defend yourself!!! The handles won’t come off & you can give someone a concussion if you hit them in the head with it so bears beware!
As with most everything else for camping this is a personal decision. It depends on your needs & what will work best for you.
Some cookware sets have a manufacturer’s warranty for defects for a year so that may definitely affect your decision on which set to buy!
All the cookware I looked at is reasonably priced & will last for years of fun and camping adventures!
