Use A Camp Kitchen Checklist So You Don't Forget Anything!
Depending on how often you go camping, it is a really good idea to get yourself a separate set of kitchen equipment that you solely use for camping. That way you can keep it permanently in the storage box (in the garage) - saves time in packing for a camping trip and you are less likely to forget anything.
Below is our camping check list for the kitchen. We try to keep it to a minimal as we hate lugging around excess stuff, but you might want to chuck in an extra saucepan.
Storage box/chuck box/patrol box (to keep your camp kitchen in. Also doubles up as an extra table for food preparation)
Cool box/Esky/Chilly bin or a 3 way fridge (if you are camping for an extended time a camping fridge is really worth the money - you can power the fridge in your car as you drive, via battery or gas or by pluging in to the mains at a campground. No more buying ice or dealing with soggy food. No more finding a freezer to re-freeze your freezer block)
Freezer blocks or ice
Camping gas bottle - check it has gas in it
Dutch oven (it so easy to cook a great meal on a campfire with a dutch oven)
Firewood (nothing beats a campfire)
BBQ and fuel (please read our BBQ Warning page)
Matches (waterproof is possible)
Cutlery (knifes, forks, spoons, teaspoons)
Saucepan + lid
Plastic wine glasses
Flask (make a coffee for later in the day when you make your morning brew. Or some soup to keep you warm during your trek)
Plastic food wrap/cling film
Paper towels/kitchen roll
Plastic food bags/zipper bags
