10 Must-Have RV Kitchen Items

Kitchen Gadgets

Bringing the kitchen along with you is one of the coolest things about RVing, and any type of RV comes with kitchen facilities. Some of them are better equipped than others, but even dealing with limited space, in the smallest RV kitchen, cooking in an RV is totally possible and you can save money by preparing delicious home-cooked meals no matter where you are. 

Thinking of this, we’ve put together a list of some kitchen accessories that will make your life easier, enabling you to create almost any meal you want.

1 – Induction Cooktop: It’s easier to carry around, storage, heats up faster than gas, and allows you to do cooking just as you would do in kitchen countertops at home. But it’s important to remember that some pans or pots that you already have may not work on induction appliances, so you’ll need “induction-compatible” cookware.

2- Instant Pot: It’s easy to use, to clean and cooks fast. With the capacity you need to feed your family, you can also replace many kitchen appliances, combining the functions of a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, sauté, steamer, and food warmer.

3- French Press: Coffee is one of those drinks that many of us can’t do without and for a full-bodied, rich-tasting coffee, the French Press is a great option. It’s easy to use and takes up little space than the drip coffee maker you have at home.

7- Cast Iron Skillet: A great addition to your RV kitchen. It sautés, fries and bakes. This cast-iron skillet is super versatile and can be used in the kitchen (on your stove or induction cooktop), on your backyard grill, or even an open fire while you’re camping. With this multicooker, you don’t need to dirty another dish since you can just take it from your stovetop to the oven. Highly recommended!
