RE: Kitchen "must haves" please share!


I am in that process of making decisons on what to take with us. This has been a good thread. We were in the fiver this weekend and it made me take a good look at my space (ours is only a 30fter). Most of my Kitchen stuff is going to my son but will be in storage for a year until he graduates. A few things I know I'll take are my crock-pot, food processor and my good pans. I did just buy a magic bullet blender, it is small and I love the attachable cups which can be used other times and it appears to do what I want it for (smoothies & protein shakes)- so I think it will be coming with us. Just a month to go!

Recently Ethel bought me an "induction burner".  It is very much like a "hotplate" in virtually all respects but one.  It heats like a microwave oven utilizing any cooking utensil mad of ferrous steel - no Aluminum or composite - must be ferrous based which are easy to find and not expensive.


Th advantage, it cooks faster and without heating up the coach like a propane or eclectric cooking surface.  It is wonderful.  It is a MAX by Burton.  I love it!

Great thread! Does anyone have experience with silicon bakeware? Seems like it would be a great light weight alternative to pyrex and other heavy bake ware.

I have been searching all over the internet for the Nissen Thermal Cooker.  I finnaly tracked down the company that makes it and they said they quit making it.  No problems, they just quit!

Lots of recommendations here. But I think some are just obvious like the pot, food processor, mugs, frying pans etc.

carolinakids: An induction cooktop, Nuwave is only one manufacturer, runs on electricity and many here like to camp without electric hookups. We have made sure our new cookware is inductive ready, but don't have a place to store an inductive cooktop. Plus my wife gets irritated enough juggling the Breville Smartoven and microwave, since we can't run both at the same time due to the way our RV is wired.

RE: Kitchen "must haves" please share!


A kitchen must have garbage disposal. A garbage disposal is a food waste discarding unit, which is installed under the kitchen sink and electrically powered. Once it is fitted between the trap and drain, the user can shred waste materials into small particles that can pass down the drain without clogging the pipes. The waste is mixed with water, grinded, and then directed to the sewers and water treatment plants where the liquid waste can be managed efficiently.

If the waste is put into a landfill instead, it decomposes and produces harmful methane gas. The unit makes household waste management easier as well as protecting the environment in general. Having a garbage disposal not only makes your kitchen life easier but also allows effective processing of organic materials into biosolids.

Congratulations Lynn.  I see that there are a lot of folks excited for you and are offering many great suggestions.  The one practice suggestion is think small and light.  You are moving into a RV.  You should think along the lines of, what do I use the most.  This may change in your new environment over time. 

I just bought Melissa the Instant Pot IP Duo.  I think this will be very versatile as we learn how to use it.  In our case, Melissa just about emptied the kitchen in the stick&brick into the coach.  WAY too much stuff!.  I suggest a new thought.  Try "what don't I need" as your leader.

Do you have a RV at this time?  Please share this with us.

Happy trails,

Rick Y

Ryan,

No, garbage disposers are not something you want in an RV. You are assuming all parks are hooked up to sewer. Many, many will be on septic systems and don't need a high load of food particles.

Generating methane isn't a problem in landfills as all of them now collect methane and use it to generate heat/electricity.
