Let’s be sure we all agree upon what is considered a “utensil”. In my mind, utensils are everything (except knives, which get a post of their own) that we cook and eat with.  Spoons, forks, spatulas, etc…these are utensils.  Ok, now that we’ve covered that….

Scott, our glorious boss at RoadCeo, uses a tool box keep all his cooking utensils in. Yes, a toolbox.  I’ve also seen people who use tackle boxes the same way. You can tell by looking at this picture Scott carries a wide variety of utensils, including a whisk and a hand crank mixer.  I don’t bring the mixer but I do usually have a variety of whisk sizes with me.  A whisk is one of those tools that can be used in so many ways….Ok, I’m off the point.  Ask anyone who is an avid camp cook – nay, chef – and they will tell you they regularly pack tons of kitchen gadgets.

I think we should talk about what tools you might need if you’re just starting out.  Most people should do well with a cooking spoon, a slotted spoon, a ladle and a pair of tongs. You will also want measuring spoons and measuring cups – I like to bring a glass cup and a collapsible rubber cup. A set of hot pads or oven mitts is always useful and a pair of pliers or a second pair of tongs for handling hot lids and pots won’t hurt. You’ll want good knives but like I said – we’ll cover that later. 

By the way, if you’re gearing up for your first trip and you don’t have a lot of money or you’re not sure you’ll keep camping, go to the dollar store (have we noticed how much I love the dollar store?) and pick up all this stuff for cheap.  Worse comes to worse, you’ll end up with an extra set of everything, which is also not a bad thing.

That being said, let me emphasize utensils are like any other tools. Not only do you get what you pay for, but how long they last depends how well they are taking care of.  Even if you have to buy them one by one, try to invest in the good stuff. If you do become an avid camper, it’s very cool to be able to tell your kids they will inherit these tools someday and to see them get excited about that.

How do you store your utensils?  Are you a new camper or have you been doing it awhile?  Leave me your comments guys!
