Dutch Ovens Are an RVer’s Best Friend

When you’re loading up your RV for your next road trip, you may be tempted to pack all of your kitchen’s gadgets so that you’re not without your most prized cooking tools. The problem is, there’s probably not going to be enough room for all of them. You’ve got to keep it simple when you RV and no cooking tool is simpler than the humble dutch oven.

The dutch oven, if you’re unacquainted, is every RVer’s best friend. This heavy, flat-bottomed kettle comes with a lid, legs, and a handle. It doesn’t look like much, but having this one tool is like bringing your kitchen stove along for the ride. They excel when it comes to campfire cooking, something you’re likely to dabble in when you’re on the road.

If you’re sick and tired of frozen, processed, dehydrated, and vacuum-sealed foods, just get yourself a quality cast iron dutch oven and bring some life back to your meals on the road. The dutch oven has a long and storied history in the United States, used by such figures as explorers, pioneers, cowboys, trappers, and mountain men. You can make nearly any meal in a dutch oven that you could make in a regular oven.

The design of a dutch oven allows you to cook complete one pot meals over any open fire. The thick cast metal of a dutch oven absorbs heat, retains it, and distributes it evenly over the inside surface. They’re kind of heavy, which means that taking one on a backpacking trip would be quite difficult, but, as an RVer, you don’t have that problem. Before your next trip, do yourself a favor and acquire your own dutch oven. You’ll find it’s not just a welcome addition to your kitchen, but your best mealtime friend.
