How Do I Store a Camp Kitchen?

Q. I have everything I need for my first camp kitchen except for a good way to store it. Any ideas?
— Taylor, Allentown, Pennsylvania

A. The No. 1 rule is to make sure your camp kitchen is easy to toss in the car and go.

A large plastic bin such as the Rubbermaid Roughneck Storage Box ($24) will do the trick. Want something more organized? Pick up the Camp Chef Sherpa Camp Table and Organizer ($125), featuring a 27-by-17-inch aluminum roll-top table, four zippered compartments and dividers, and telescoping aluminum legs.

For storing utensils (forks, spoons, knives), keep a small zippered bag made of a tough fabric that won’t tear easily. Keep other essentials like butane lighters, matches and must-have spices in their own small stuff sacks.

  1. Any spices and food items should be stored separately. The smell of spices or coffee could rant your flour or other foods. Also good to rotate food items . Make sure all is dry before putting up and don’t store in extreme heat or dampness.
