I have an electric skillet that I like using the most, great when you have "hook-ups" or generator. In the morning making pancakes in the skillet also helps warm the place up on those chilly mornings.

We purchased a Henri- Frederick at the local 80% off kitchen store Benix. Cost 39.99 for steamer pot, 2 other pots, 2 fry pans with glass lids and non stick utensils as well. Good deal for sure. These for inside or Coleman Propane use. Have cast iron for the campfire.

While we're here, what are the must haves for a camper kitchen?

We've always been campfire cookers. I can cook darn near anything on a fire but with 3 little kids now, we don't have the time or energy to get a fire ready to cook. One of the many reasons we are getting the TT. Bathroom being number 1. Real bed being 2, I just can't do the air mattress anymore.

I'm planning on Corelle for dishes. Light weight, versatile, and durable. I don't do paper, even tent camping. Trevis tumblers for glasses, wine and regular.

We do plastic ware because we are trying to relax not do all the dish washing thing like at home, some CG's have a plastic recycle bin, water bottles and ware go there.

In addition to the pans and glass cookware I mentioned earlier, I have correlle plates and bowls, paper plates, tervis tumblers, a couple of wine glasses, a couple of travel coffee mugs, some Tupperware for leftovers, a basic silverware set, 2 spatulas, tongues, can opener, corkscrew with bottle opener, potato peeler, strainer, a knife set, coffee pot (we have a cappuccino maker, some have mini keurigs, and others regular coffee pots), cutting board, drying rack, dish soap, sponges etc, toaster. You get the idea, a scaled down version of the home kitchen.

On edit- you will want paper plates and cups when not hooked up to sewer to help save on water.

We do corelle also- but only when we have hookups. Paper when roughing it- they burn great in the campfire. Starting to like the idea of the electric griddle to do pancakes and such. Already have waffle iron and microwave for the bacon.

And as you can tell, we love this roughing it stuff!! (What do you mean the blue ray player isn't working!)

Oh yeah, forgot the bacon press.

hondaman- what, no cable and no good antenna signal? Guess we have to watch dvds tonight. Roughing it also means no pool or playground for dd. Yup we are spoiled by our glamping style.

Yea- I voted against DSS. All that "reality" stuff rots my kids brain!

But I am comfortable with my level of roughing it!

It's already the Xbox discussion for the kids room in the camper. I am making the husband break out the guitar to learn some campfire songs. We don't rough it much. Even with the tent we will reserve a site with power and water. Movies have been running in our tent since laptops developed batteries. I still wash dishes by hand when tent camping. I call it keeping it real. I'm not Suzy homemaker until you put me camping or in a house on the beach.

We have started the induction cooking. Have to have magnetic bottom pans. Got a 12 piece set of Emeril pans at Younkers for $119. including tax. It is heavy and easy to wash. No heat in camper. No propane just electric. I also got the plate at garage sale new for $30. Cook inside or out.
