One challenge of living in a van is making sure we eat well so we need a well equipped kitchen to prepare and cook our meals. With limited space indoors, having compact and practical kitchen accessories makes life easier, more organised and minimises the storage we need.
Living in a van has its challenges but with a well equipped kitchen, cooking isn’t one of them.
We’ve lived in the van full-time for over a year already. Although our camper is a fair size we’ve seen RVs a lot bigger.
So with limited space indoors, having compact and practical accessories makes life easier, more organised and minimises the storage we need.
We’re now on our 2nd van, and over time, we’ve perfected the contents of our van’s kitchen cupboards for our needs.
These camper kitchen accessories make sure we eat well and cook just about anything our culinary skills can stretch to.
Small kitchen accessories
We all need a few gadgets and utensils for food prep. We could get by with less than we use or have in the drawer but a few choice accessories make preparing meals so much easier.
Here’s a list of the kitchen utensils we wouldn’t travel without:
Knives - sharp ones and a sharpener too
Chopping boards – one each for meat, chicken & veg/fruit
Tin opener – ring pulls aren’t common everywhere
Oven gloves – essential for the cast iron skillet
Grater – this one is really small
Colander - we use a lightweight mesh sieve
Corkscrew - goes without saying.
