The holiday season is the perfect time to help the camp cooks in your life stock up on great accessories to make amazing meals outdoors. Whether they’re a fan of cooking over the open fire or prefer to keep their food on the grill, the right tools can make meal prep easy and cooking more fun. Plus, when a cook enjoys being in the kitchen, family and friends get to enjoy the fruits of their labor. We call that the definition of a win/win. We’ve pulled together some fantastic gift options for all those who love camping cooking.
Cast Iron Skillets
Cast iron skillets are one of the most useful pieces of camp cooking equipment you can own. You can use them on the grill, over the campfire, in an oven, or on a stove. Once they’re properly seasoned they become nonstick and are easily cleaned. Tip: Never wash cast iron with soap or dish detergent as it will wash away the seasoning and potentially ruin the nonstick capability.
