Everyone has different understanding of outdoor equipment. Some people want good-looking equipment, while some outdoor enthusiasts need better protection and lightweight. In the wilderness, the most suitable equipment is the one that is easy to use. During outdoor activities, we often feel exhausted due to prolonged walking or consume too much energy due to terrain and climate. In such cases, you can bring instant food to replenish your energy or bring camping cooking ware like stoves, bowls, utensils, and ingredients to make your own delicious food. Imagine enjoying the food you made while being one with nature in a beautiful landscape, that feeling is unique.
If you choose the latter, selecting the right cookware is crucial. Aluminum alloy, pure titanium, and 304 stainless steel are all options. The following introduction will help you choose the cookware that suits you best.
The pot sets sold on the market are usually made of aluminum alloy (high cost-effectiveness, heavy weight) or titanium alloy (expensive and light). There are various types of pots such as frying pans, woks, rice cookers, pressure cookers, etc. Whether to buy an aluminum or titanium pot set or an integrated reactor depends on your needs.
Utensils for eating are also essential. We usually choose items that serve multiple purposes, such as using a pot set as a bowl. It is also convenient to bring a pot set to serve as a cooking bowl, which is not only large in size but also easy to carry. For individual trips, you can also use it as a pot. As for chopsticks and spoons, it depends on personal preferences. When choosing chopsticks, it is recommended to choose the appropriate length and weight. The same applies to spoons. Both of these can be found in a foldable design, but attention should be paid to whether they can be locked securely, as that is crucial.
The multifunctional small army knife is fully equipped, easy to store, portable, small in size, and can be taken on some means of transportation (not considered a controlled knife). For self-drive trips or chartered trips that do not require vehicles, you can buy a relatively large tactical knife, which is suitable for cutting vegetables, chopping trees, and making wooden products, making it very convenient. There are also many other types of knives to choose from, so you can choose the camping cooking ware that suits you and that you like.
Split-type stove: generally heavy and bulky, with a foot rack that makes it more stable and less likely to flip.
Integrated stove: generally lightweight and small, stabilized by a gas canister. As the gas canister plus the stove height is relatively high, and most of them are designed for lightness, the support is also relatively narrow, so it is easy to flip.
The choice of camping cooking ware stove depends on the preference of lightweight enthusiasts who focus on weight, and they usually choose an integrated stove that is small in size, lightweight, easy to store, and pay attention to the power and voltage stability of the stove, choosing one with voltage stabilization and a high power output to save time and fuel. The disadvantage is that it is easy to flip. If you are concerned about stability, it is recommended to buy a split-type stove. If you are ascending high-altitude mountains, it is recommended to purchase a reactor.
