What appliances do you bring for cooking and coffee

After reading these posts I asked myself what all do I bring to cook on or make coffee. So here is my list.

Tek infrared grill
Cobb Grill (seldom used)
Potable infrared stove stove (love it)
Fire pit (used occasionally for marshmallows and hotdogs)
Dual heating Plate (great backup however neither side gets very hot)
Joules SV machine
Ninja cooking pans (complete set)
Two cutting board
Lido coffee grinder
ESPRO French Press
Bialetti Stove top (used some time but not often)
Electric Espresso machine (not sure why I carry it)

Wat is on your list?

We tried many things for coffee and ended up sticking with an AeroPress. It’s compact, lightweight, and it makes fantastic coffee. It obviously requires a teapot to heat the water on the stovetop, but that’s no big deal.

When cooking, we use our Weber Q gas grill frequently, and we occasionally use gas oven or the stovetop in Airstream. The microwave is very seldom used.

Webber Q, with cast iron Dutch oven, Q griddle and skillet. Just added Air-frier and looking forward to trying it out. Single hot plate and electric Percolator. I also have a small stove top Cuban expresso pot when shore power isn’t available. Never use the built in microwave convection oven except as a dry storage locker.

Stove top coffee pot to perk our brew. A Webber Q BBQ for grilling. That is it. KISS is my motto.

Electric appliances are Plan D for us for cooking.

The primary tools whenever possible are open campfire using cast iron skillets, Dutch oven, grilling over the campfire or the Weber Q, one of several percolators and a cardboard box oven. Heat source depends on what is cooking but I do enjoy using old Coleman white gas stove for basic use like the percolator in the AM for example. I also carry a Dutch oven cooking table and a Camp Chef propane two burner if we need lots more BTU's.

That's the cast iron fleet and I pick a couple pieces depending on menu and plans. At the top left is a Lodge 20" skillet. Table full of a 6lb boneless prime rib cooked in a 10qt Dutch oven and a simple beef pot pie over the coals. And a pine apple upside down cake made in a cardboard box oven.

This pretty much covers it, all the 'normal' stuff plus a 'Q'.👍

Coffee

We have been traveling full-time since July 2016 in our 2001 30’ Airstream trailer. 54,000+ miles, 380+ campgrounds and 48 States/4 Canadian Provinces so far. Here is how to make fantastic coffee in an Airstream while camping.

Keurig for quick and easy coffee. Gas stovetop, convection microwave, toaster, and Instant Pot pressure cooker inside trailer. Coleman 225 portable gas grill for outside.

We full-time and have dialed in a combo that works for us. We have a single burner Camp Chef Explorer that is compatible with their 14” accessories, and we have their cast iron flat-top, grill, and pizza oven for outside cooking (store in the bed of the truck). We also have a small pan/basket combo that we use for frying (usually wings and fish).

For inside cooking we have a 12” saute pan and and a sauce pan (bought at Wal-Mart) for stovetop use and an Instant Pot. For hot drinks we have a stovetop tea kettle and a 5 cup Mr Coffee coffee maker (cheap and cheerful).

This all works well and doesn’t take up much space.

Weber Baby Q w/quick connect to the trailer propane feed.

Nespresso Vertuo coffee maker. Takes up space on the counter but worth it for really good coffee, espresso, and flavored coffees.

Wondering about Portable Microwave Use

Is there any reason I could not bring along and just plug in a small inexpensive microwave when I am on shore power? I only have a gas oven and wondering if it would blow fuses or anything?

Wat is on your list?

Do you vacuum pack food before leaving? Or do you even bother with vacuum packing?

For coffee we have a thermal carafe and the plastic cone that takes #6 coffee filters fits on it exactly and is stable. We boil water in a small kettle, on the stove gas burner. We tend to use "brick" coffee from Aldi, pre-ground all arabica beans. Once opened we store the coffee in a closed container in the fridge. We grind beans at home but not on the road - the brick of coffee is shelf stable and easy to pack.
We also pack long life gluten free bread, and that usually travels in the microwave which we seldom use because we rarely have shore power. Tip - remove the glass shelf from the microwave and the carousel, put a clean folded dishcloth then the glass turntable, then the carousel on top then another dishcloth. This will prevent the carousel getting broken in transit...it has happened to us on a bumpy road.
Years ago we bought a set of nesting pans with a detachable handle and store these in the oven when not in use. As a bonus the saucepans can be used as baking pans. The detachable handle makes storage much easier. We bought the pans in France but I have seen them on marine outfitter websites here.
When traveling shelf stable food such as cans and some dehydrated foods such as hash-browns and powdered mashed potato can be handy and versatile. We do have I cast iron pan for outdoor cooking - love them but they are so heavy most stay home.

I our meat and fish are vacuum packed as I have them at home already frozen in vacuum packs. I only take enough for the trip. If we are gone a month or so I will buy fresh at a local store.

Wow, where do you store all that equipment?

I do almost all cooking outside. I have front bedroom floor plan specifically to allow my Alps table to be placed at the front, near the propane. I replaced the drawer under the curb-side dinette bench with one nearly twice as large with a secure latch for pans, lids, and the mandolin.

AeroPress, Yeti Tumbler
Stainless Stovetop Toaster
Assorted Swiss Diamond, Demeyere, And Black Cube Cookware, and an enamel pot from tent camping days for pasta
Magma Newport Gas Grill
Camp Chef Everest Two-Burner Stove
Alps Mountaineering 28x55 Table for the Grill and/or Stove
Hot Air Popcorn Popper
Thermapen One instant read thermometer

I started out carrying a Cobb grill but found it to be too much hassle for the road. I still use it at home occasionally. Some of the upgrades now available make it much easier to live with.

If we leave home with frozen food it’s been vacuum-packed.
