Essential RV Kitchen Accessories
No set of RV cooking supplies is complete without stackable measuring cups and spoons. I found these cups for our RV kitchen on Amazon. I have used plastic measuring cups before and I just don’t like them. They get chewed up in the drawer and look all worn out. But having heavy traditional stainless steel cups adds weight, something we always try to avoid.
So I was overjoyed when I found these cups. They are stainless steel so they really hold up well to daily beatings in the utensil drawer. They are accurate AND they are lightweight which is very important for RV living. Someone found just the right thickness to keep them lightweight, but also durable. Great set!
It turns out they also work well for arts and crafts when looking for something round for tracing wheels! Multi-purpose too!
If you DO dig plastic measurers, here is a nice set. It is quite complete as it has about every possible size of measuring cup and spoon and would also work well to round out your set of kitchen gadgets.
Stackable Mixing Bowls:
Stackable mixing bowls are essential RV kitchen supplies. These are a great set of bowls. They are melamine so they will not break, but again are lightweight. This set comes with snap-on airtight lids that won’t let liquid out- even if you turn them upside down.
The size range is great so they can be used for thawing out large roasts or pork loins or to mix up small quantities of Franks “Super Secret Honey Mustard BBQ Sauce.” (Hint- it has honey, mustard, and BBQ sauce in it- sorry babe). The stack fits neatly on the shelf under the kitchen sink. You can look for these at Sams Club, that’s where I got mine.
This set stacks nicely and they are a more rigid PVC plastic for those who want a more traditional set. Nordic Ware has good quality too.
If you prefer stainless steel bowls for your own RV kitchen or you can check out this set of bowls from Joseph Joseph. It is stainless steel, but includes a sieve and colander PLUS measuring scoops.
Cutting boards are essential kitchen tools for RV living. Super thin flat cutting boards work really well for the RV kitchen. Our favorite set comes with 4 boards marked and color-coded for vegetables, fish, fruit, and meats.
This set is really nice with a bamboo board and seven plastic boards inside. It won’t save a lot of kitchen counter-top space but has a ton of great uses.
RV Cooking Utensils:
This lightweight set of kitchen utensils is an absolute necessity in your RV kitchen. This set is very durable and a best seller on Amazon, it even includes measuring cups and spoons.
The best RV kitchen accessories and gadgets do their jobs while also saving space. This microwave cover has magnets that stick to the ceiling of the microwave, so when you are not using it, it stores in there saving valuable cupboard space. Nice!
Cast Iron Skillet:
This Lodge cast iron skillet is a must-have RV accessory. Cast iron cooks more evenly and lasts forever. It is also safe to use over a campfire or on the grill. Do keep in mind they are heavier than regular pans.
Another wonderful product that saves space in your camper kitchen. The handles slide out to provide a platform to hang it over the sink- hands-free operation.
Space Saving Knife Holder:
A lightweight wall mounted knife holder is just the ticket when on the road. This Camco unit mounts to wood or metal and holds all of your knives up off the counter, but easily accessible.
With all of the shaking and jostling, it is smart to use RV kitchen accessories that are as close to indestructible as possible. These melamine dishes are just the ticket and come in many colors.
Same applies to your glasses. RV glasses take a good deal of pounding so get a set that will be safe indoors or out. We have found this set to be one of the most durable camping dishes we purchased.
Acrylic Wine Glasses:
We love wine, even more than that, we love drinking wine from actual wine glasses. These glasses are stackable and we never have to worry about them on travel day. We prefer stemless because they won’t get blown over by the wind :).
Dish Drying Rack:
A space saving dish rack will fit over the sink and hold all of your kitchen gadgets and dishes, while not taking up counter space. This Prepworks unit includes a wash basin and works great.
Stackable Pots and Pans:
A great set of pans is a necessity in any RV. A space saving set that nests together is a HUGE bonus! No need to give up on quality either with this Calphalon set.
