Life on the road shouldn’t mean sacrificing the comforts of home. Luckily, these days, it doesn’t. Most RVs are equipped with living arrangements that are specifically designed to mimic the layouts we’ve all come to love in our own homes. Sometimes they’re even better, delivering what many would consider a high-end vacation-type of experience.

Furniture arrangements aside, the one thing that should never suffer when venturing off the grid is your meals. RV cuisine is almost nothing like the plates adorning your tables at home. In fact, it’s arguably better thanks to the wide range of accessories on the market to help keep your on-the-road kitchen smelling divine. Below is a 5-ingredient recipe for RV cooking accessories you shouldn’t, and simply can’t, go without.

Camp Chef Reversible Pre-Seasoned Cast Iron Grill & Griddle

Camp Chef Reversible Pre-Seasoned Cast Iron Grill & Griddle

Perhaps my favorite thing on this list, this reversible pre-seasoned cast iron grill and griddle is (chef’s kiss) perfection. The fact that it’s literally a two-in-one cooking masterpiece with the option of a griddle on one side and a grill on the other should be enough to have it flying into your kitchen with a bow on it. However, it also maximizes space, time, and effort with a 14” x 16” cooking surface area and retains heat evenly eliminating those annoying hot spots other pots and pans don’t warn you about. Use it for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or an impromptu snack. I guarantee everyone will be asking for seconds.
