Are you the sort of person who ransacks your kitchen before a backcountry or car camping trip, just to have your essentials float around loose in your pack? Consider looking into a nice, tidy set of camping cooking utensils. While some camping cookware comes with utensils, there are also more dedicated utensil and silverware sets available that might fit the specific needs of your next big outing.
After researching thousands of products and scouring user reviews, these are some of the best camping utensils we’ve found online.
The recommendations in this guide are based on thorough product and market research by our team of expert product reviewers. The picks are based on examining user reviews, product specifications, and, in some limited cases, our experience with the specific products named.
Life 2 Go Camp Cooking Utensil Set
Packed in a sleek, portable bag made of woven cotton, the Life 2 Go utensil set has everything you could need on an outdoor adventure. This small-business brand delivers a lightweight and durable set with plenty of must-haves. It includes a spatula, serving fork and spoon, two knives, a silicone spatula, scissors with a bottle opener, tongs, and a cutting board. Plus, the bag has some additional space to add in your own essentials.
Reviewers do mention that the turning spatula could be bigger, although it’s fine for flipping burgers or small pancakes. However, the cutting board just doesn’t cut it in terms of size. On the flip side, the knives and scissors are good when it comes to quality. The paring knife with the included peeler should be used carefully to avoid accidental injury.
Easy to clean and easier to transport, this set measures 14.5 inches long by 8.5 inches wide by 2 inches thick when packed into the case.
Bomki Grilling and Camping Cooking Utensils Set
On the more expensive side, the Bomki camping utensil set comes with a ton of great tools for your campsite. The carrying case is on the large side, measuring 14.5 by 9 by 2.5 inches. The set includes tongs, a spatula, a fork, a serving spoon, a bottle opener, cutting board, heat-resistant glove, microfiber towel, and salt and pepper shakers. Stainless steel and BPA free, the included items are well organized, and the bag has extra room for adding other items.
The long strap makes this set easy to carry, and the tong stands make it easy to keep your workspace tidy. This set comes with a two-year limited warranty on all items, along with the small business’s customer support.
Wealers 11 Piece Camp Kitchen
The Wealers 11-piece camp kitchen kit comes in a variety of fun colors, making choosing your set that much more pleasant. One thoughtful feature of this utensil set is that each item has its own designated spot, so they won’t get damaged in transit or misplaced. Reviewers say the kit’s both sturdy and versatile.
This set comes with a good-sized cutting board, a wine key, two knives, a barbecue fork, spatula, ladle, tongs, and scissors. All of which make cooking in the wilderness easier.
Many of the reviews for this set mention that the knives are sharp and people really like them, which is uncommon in budget-friendly cooking sets. Others, meanwhile, mention that the ladle is a bit small. Another negative about this set is that the handle on the bag is reportedly easy to tear, but this doesn’t affect the function of the utensils.
We feel good recommending this set for its price and quality, and when you buy from Wealers you’re supporting a small business, which always feels great.
Rockkii Camping Silverware Set with Case
Packaged for either two or four people, the Rockkii camping cutlery set comes packed neatly in a nice case and is easy to travel with. The dishwasher safe silverware includes four knives, four forks, four spoons, four stainless-steel plates, and four reusable napkins. It also includes a cutting board, cheese knife, and wine key.
The total weight of this eating utensil set is just 3.23 pounds, and we like that the plates are larger than those in most other sets. Reviews say it’s easy to clean and that there’s room to add other items if you want, which is a nice feature.
With a quality case and nice utensils, this set is the cutest one we came across in our shopping—and it comes at a decent price.
This basic, three-piece set of titanium silverware is, according to reviewers, sturdy, lightweight, and great for everyday use (not just camping). These pieces are corrosion resistant and last through high temperatures, meaning you can use them when the food is steaming hot or the wind is howling. The fork, knife, and spoon have a polished, smooth head, matte finish, and comfortable grip.
