Cooking Without the need for EHU

Coleman Unleaded Sportster Camping Stove,
It's our go to stove it's versatile and you can use it anywhere, petrol is readily available, so you can't really go wrong!

Coleman Fyrestorm Personal Cook System (PCS),
A very affordable and reliable gas stove. Packed with great features, we took this away wild camping on the Isle of Arran (Scotland) and it served us very well.

Campingaz Party Grill 600
This piece of kit for family camping really impressed me, I've been cooking up a storm, it's very functional and can be used in many different ways from boiling a kettle to a full blown mixed grill with onions rings and fries.

Vango Roar Stove
Another stove that is small but perfectly formed runs on the screw type gas canisters and it boils water in a few minutes, essential for my morning Coffee.

Primus Onja Stove
Fancy something a little different stylish with a touch of class, this can be used on the campsite, out and about or in your garden at home. Complete with carrying strap and chopping board.

Primus Kuchoma Grill
With it's simple yet effective design, it's impressive and it works well. Let's be honest we all like things that look nice and this is an attractive bit of kit.

Jetboil Flash 2.0 stove
A stove with the fasted boil time of any we have tested. Need that coffee brew fast, need to get the boil-in-the-bag meal ready asap? Then this is probably the bit of kit you need.

Jetboil MiniMo cook system
A stove that has brilliant simmer control and a regulated gas flow. We've cooked some very tasty food on this brilliant piece of kit.

MSR Windburner Duo stove
As the name would suggest, this cook system is designed to be used by 2 people. It does have plenty off room in the larger pot, we were able to boil up 2 meals at a time when we took it away wild camping.

Cooking with an EHU

When we first started out we had a EuroHike camp kitchen and a table with storage underneath these are great for storage and food prep.
We have many things that we have available for cooking, we are a family of five and sometimes we have friends and family join us also, so going for a meal out can often easily come to over £100, we used to have an EHU when all of us camp together because we can take the fridge and this allows us to cook all manner of foods and not live off one pot meals and BBQ food.

At home we have a Phillip Air Fryer which is quick and a more healthy than frying, we used to take it camping with us but it wasn't cheap and it was getting damaged with all the travelling so we purchased a Halogen Oven, We have also used a George Foreman Grill when camping before, so there may be items you already use in your kitchen that you could use.

Pans are essential also the Primus CampFire pan set, not only look great the size is good, they're easy to clean, store and they're well made.

I've already mentioned the fridge, ours is electric both 12 volt and 240 volt - You can get them that run off gas too.
A Fridge Freezer for camping

A large gas bottle is often used when camping but to the untrained eye it's difficult to tell how much gas is in them, here is how to test them;

We use a Collapsible Washing up Bowl, I especially like this, because I can wash up at the tent.

Cooking pans, plates, utensils etc.

Jetboil Summit Skillet
Designed more for backpacking camping due to it's size and weight, but we have used it on wild camping and family camping trips because it's become invaluable to our camping cooking.
