With the season just about to start properly, Mrs B is in the market for some suitable cookware for Absinthe. We've used cheap camping pans before but they're not ideal.

Alison has alreday purchased a frying pan (it's green of course) but we need a couple of sauce pans as well.

Has anyone got any suggestions - preferably light but good quality. We're happy to use camping cookware but need decent handles and they shouldn't take up too much space.

What do you all use? bounce

Aside from a small frying pan (perfect pancake size) we have two aluminium pans from a very old camping set.

They are approx 15cm and 20cm in diameter therefore small compared to 'normal' pans, but a perfect size for the Kombi hob and 25cm or so tall so they still have a good capacity and the extra height minimises splashing etc.

The smaller one fits inside the larger, compete with its lid, and the larger lid on top of that which means they take up minimal space in the cupboard and are easy to clean.

In our opinion, just the job!

We use a frying pan, an ordinary saucepan, and a 4" milkpan which is ideal for soups for the two of us. Abs.



Recently bought one of these from Halfords as well, yet to try it out, as still using our old camping kettle






Forgot to add a collapsible sieve as well.

Got a couple of enamel sauce pans from my Gran, best to use reasonably light weight ones as general household types take longer to heat up as calor/ butane gas doesn't burn as high as household gas ( in my opinion, no technical knowledge, just years of practical use).

Actually, natural gas, as used in homes, has less than half the calorific energy of propane and about one third of butane. (It's methane, so only one carbon atom Smile )

We use the Tefal Bivuoac camping set. We got ours on ebay when we first got the bus, not sure how easily they are to come by now though. Two pots, a frying pan and strainer lid all fit into the larger pot and then into a nice wee bag to keep everything safe. The only thing is that there is only one handle that you use for all the pots, but they are very lighweight and sre (dark) green! Wink

I made the mistake of getting a set with the pivoting two point type handle, rather than one handle like the pans at home. Going to get a normal set of pans for this season.

We use an old set we bought many years ago when first camping!
It has three pots, a frying pan, poacher and two removable handles.
Not only is it all lightweight and packs into one another but it is all non stick as well.
We have recently bought one of thos collapsible strainers (in blue)
It just fits in the sink and is great for pasta.

We have a frying pan and a small 3 part steamer as the bottom pan doubles up as a saucepan. Tim

Camping is a massive crazy in Koea at present and is nothing like camping in Europe or the uk. But being Korea the place is very much gadget made some great some just mad.

But one thing that all Koreans seem to use is a camping pressure cooker we are thinking of getting one to bring home in the summer for Daphne

http://www.alibaba.com/product-free/109717361/Camping_Pressure_Cooker/showimage.html

Not sure if available in UK but they cook really efficiently - though with a bit of steam on release but then we do 90% of summer cooking outside
