Experiencing the change of the seasons in an RV combines the scenic beauty of the great outdoors with the comforts of modern amenities. Whether you’re an indoors or outdoors person, one thing you need to know is that you’re in for an amazing time no matter what. We’re here to help ensure that you have everything you need to hit the road and still have wonderful mealtimes.
Here’s our list of essential tips for how to make the most out of your RV kitchen space:
1. Use RV-Safe Utensils
Your RV provides the comforts of home, but you’ll want to be sure you have the right utensils for your RV’s kitchen. When you’re prepping for your cookout, space is always a factor—find cooking tools such as a strainer or measuring cups that are collapsible and/or stackable. As you consider pots and pans, it’s very important that you don’t make the rookie mistake of just grabbing pots from your house. If you can, find pots and pans that work with both open-flame and induction stovetops.
2. Get Your Main Dish Cooking
What’s an RV cookout without grilling? Many people may think of an RV as simple living, but you can still create amazing meals that will have the entire campground wanting to stop by for a taste. Search the top brands in grilling to find the perfect travel-ready grill. Don’t let the size fool you—travel grills can handle charcoal, propane, liquid propane, and wood pellets. Just make sure to find the most versatile grill that meets your needs.
3. Unleash the Power of Multi-Cookers
Before throwing the meat on the grill, get all your side dishes going in a slow cooker or multi-cooker. The right multi-cooker can slow cook, deep-fry, steam, and bake. Grab a multi-cooker and let your inner chef’s imagination run wild.
4. Get Creative
Reduced kitchen space is an opportunity to let out your inner cooking MacGyver. Create recipe hacks to optimize recipes for your RV, or find cooking shortcuts to get the same gourmet taste in a more creative way. We’ll give you hint: food prep can save on time and space. Grab some storage bags, pre-shredded cheese, precut vegetables, and premixed spices, and let’s get cooking.
5. Disconnect, Connect, and Reconnect
The ability to enjoy a meal on the road with new friends is one of the many reasons to disconnect from your busy life and embark on a trip in your RV. Hitting the road presents an awesome opportunity to meet fellow RVers, and grilling in front of your RV will create memories that’ll last forever. Set up a properly shaded space to create the ideal area for cooking, eating, and enjoying your company.
Staying organized plays a huge part in making each meal its best. Always remember that making the meal is just a part of the process. The memories you create while eating meals with your family, friends, and loved ones will always be the best thing to make room for. Make sure to save room for the most important ingredient in every meal: love!
