At first glance, it may appear these utility camping cookware sets are the same. However, after reviewing the travel utility sets, we discovered they are actually very different. Some have items, such as a cheese grater, that one would normally not take along on a hike. Just like one would not consider carrying along a heavy cast iron skillet for a day hike! However, you might take an all-included utility set camping if you had an RV or camper. As with all reviews and discussions about items for sale, be sure and choose the one that fits your needs.

  • Large Soup Spoon or Ladle

Though most of the camping or BBQ utensils in sets like these are usually stainless steel, some are not. In a few case, the soup spoon or spatula may be made of heavy-duty heat resistant plastic. Of course, less is needed if only hiking vs. camping overnight.
