Caravan cooking equipment

After sharing our favourite recipes, the Coast team wanted to take a look at some of the gadgets available on the market to make cooking up a storm in a caravan or motorhome that little bit easier.

Here are some of our favourite pieces of equipment for storing, preparing, cooking and eating food in a leisure vehicles:

Multi-task can opener

Even if you’ve got lots of storage, bench space can still be at a premium in your caravan or motorhome. This nifty can opener doubles up as a knife, corkscrew and bottle opener, saving time on the washing up!

Lifeventure collapsible bowl

This watertight bowl can be packed away into even the smallest of spaces and is great if you want to sit outside while preparing vegetables for dinner. You can also take it on picnics if you want to wash fruit or salad items before eating.

Three compartment spice jar

We love this petite spice jar, which divides into three compartments for storing your favourite flavourings. It’s a great container for salt, pepper and dried mixed herbs to add to tomato sauces. Or if you fancy something exotic, why not take some Indian spices such as turmeric, cumin and chilli powder and make a curry whilst you’re on holiday? The jar is also built from shatterproof material, which makes it perfect for touring.

Corn on the cob skewers

Corn on the cob is a great vegetable to cook in the oven or on the barbecue as it takes minimum preparation, and these skewers slot into each end to make holding and eating it even easier when the cooking part’s over!

Wavebox portable microwave oven

It’s not particularly practical to cart the microwave from your home about when you’re travelling, but the world’s first portable microwave is a fantastic solution. The 12 volt gadget is designed for use in a caravan or motorhome and requires a PNP power port for operation. It has a heavy duty casing and removable cord for easy storage, as well as non-slip rubber coating on the legs for added stability.
