Every camper and every camping trip is different. Some prefer glamping while others prefer long haul ultralight backpacking trips. You wouldn’t bring a full size mattress on a backpacking trip and the same goes for cookware - you need the right gear for the job. If you’re feeling overwhelmed by all the choices out there for camp cooking gear, you came to the right place. We broke down our cookset options by camping style for newbies and seasoned pros alike.
We know you don’t like a lot of extra fluff in your camping gear repertoire, so we’ll keep this short and sweet: you need the new Halulite Minimalist II in your pack. It’s everything you need for quick trail meals - pot that doubles as a mug, lid, insulating sleeve, silicone gripper, and compact folding foon - and nothing you don’t. Hard anodized aluminum brings durability and efficiency with a total weight of 0.38lbs. Shed the weight and stress of finding the perfect ultralight setup - you just did.
Perhaps you too like backpacking, but you like to bring some extra amenities along for the trip. If you’re more of a weekend backpacker that doesn’t find joy in a sufferfest, you’ll love the Halulite Microdualist II. Fit for two, the Microdualist includes cooking pot, strainer lid, 2 insulated mugs with lids, 2 bowls, 2 folding foons, and welded dish washing sink. All these pieces nest into a compact footprint with room for stowing a stove and fuel canister inside. Backcountry trips for two have never been easier.
Car Camping Aficionados
Backpacking isn’t for everyone, and there’s nothing like a nice car camping weekend at your favorite lake or forest. Car camping makes it easier to bring together friends or family, but that means your cookset needs to be able to handle a full crew. In walks the Glacier Stainless Camper ready to serve delicious frontcountry meals every time. It may have a small footprint, but this set packs a punch: nested in a convenient welded sink is a 3L pot, 2L pot, strainer lid, 9in fry pan, four insulated mugs with lids, four bowls, four plates, and folding pot gripper. Break out your two burner stove and feed the masses with this heavy duty stainless steel set.
This one’s for the vanlifers, truck campers, or full-on travel trailer folks. When you’re on the road, you need a set that can tackle any meal that gets thrown at it (but a set that also fits in a drawer). You need the Bugaboo Base Camper - compact, versatile, and high-performing. Available in a small, medium, or large model, the Bugaboo Base Camper set includes two pots, a fry pan, cutting board, folding pot handle, and welded sink stuff sack. Choose the size that fits your needs (and your living quarters on wheels) and this cookset will be your road companion for life - you might just let it ride shotgun.
We get it - sleeping on the ground isn’t always what it’s cracked up to be. Whether you’re kitting out your cabin, yurt, glamorous tent, or vacation rental, there’s a camp cookset for you too: the Pioneer Camp Set. This 15 piece cooking and table set can beautify the shelves of a fancy cabin while still looking right at home on a weathered picnic table. Twice kiln-hardened enamel glaze is featured on every piece - the four 12oz cups, four plates, four bowls, 8 cup percolator, 3 quart kettle, and 8in frying pan. Available in classic speckled blue or speckled green, this set is as perfect for the ‘gram as it is for serving your friends and guests for generations to come.
While hiking can sometimes be a grind, choosing the right cooking gear doesn’t have to be. Congratulations, you just met your camp cooking companion.
