Check out these 9 pieces of cookware you need for emergencies. If you’re ever caught up in the middle of an emergency or natural disaster, having cookware that allows you to still be able to cook and prepare meals for your family will be extremely important for survival.
Especially if your situation does not improve over a longer stretch of time. It’s all about being prepared before we need to be, right? We can do this, life is good when we are prepared.
Here are several cookware items that are highly recommended for you to have during an emergency. In case you missed my post How To Use A Kelly Kettle All you need are twigs or pine cones to boil water or cook a small pan of soup.
Cookware You Need For Emergencies
A Butane Stove
I have mentioned this before, I highly recommend a Butane Stove and stocking a few Extra Canisters of Fuel. Mark and I actually used one for a few weeks when we were waiting for a gas line to be run into our home for a gas stove.
When I would teach classes the stores would supply then for me to cook food storage meals in front of the students. If you use them at home, just crack a window, or use them outside if you feel more comfortable.
Coleman Mess Kit
The Coleman Mess Kit may not include eating utensils, but it provides you with an aluminum frying pan and a lid that will allow you to keep your utensils organized. Instead of using steel, this aluminum kit proves to be just as efficient and makes it so much lighter for you to carry. This kit would work for up two people and would be great for camping as well.
Carbon Steel Family Cook Set
The Carbon Steel Family Cook Set is just another way to go if you need a number of different pots and frying pans to support your cooking needs. It’s made with heavy-duty carbon steel and conveniently has a non-stick coating.
This set even features swinging handles to make it more compact while packing away, and there’s a bag for carrying. It’s also very easy to clean and each pot and pan can nest together to make your life a little easier.
G.I. Can Opener
You don’t want to be caught with your pants down following an emergency, and not having a P-38 or a P-51 Can Opener. Especially when canned foods are ones that you have a pantry stocked full of.
Coghlan’s Telescoping Fork is an extendable cooking fork that’s easy to rotate while pushing the thumb roller. It’s perfect for hotdogs and smores, as well as other types of food that you wish to roast above the fire.
Coghlan’s Camper’s Knife
A knife is another tool that you don’t want to be caught without. Coghlan’s Camper’s Knife comes with a fork, swiss army knife, and spoon that are detachable, as well as a can opener. It comes with a rubbery handle that makes it easy to hold and is quite a useful compact tool.
Stainless Steel Cup
Don’t forget that you’ll need to drink plenty of water too, and if you’re a big coffee drinker in the morning you’ll need a method for holding your cup of Joe. A Stainless Steel Cup is both durable and convenient to carry, holding up to 20 oz of liquid at a time.
ZeroTrees Compostable Meal Kit
If you’re looking for lightweight utensils, plates, and bowls to eat out of, but don’t like the idea of using plastic or paper that are not the best for the environment, the ZeroTrees Compostable Meal Kit will solve this problem.
Everything in this kit is biodegradable, being made from sugarcane, yet is still extremely durable.
Stainless Steel Multi-Utensil Set
This Stainless Steel Multi-Utensil Set is versatile as well as compact, and comes with 3 different tools that are quite handy for you to have. It comes with a fork, spoon, knife, and so much more, cover included.
Deluxe Chow Kit
If you feel that you don’t need all those extra tools and simply need a regular cutlery set, the Deluxe Chow Kit is your way to go. This is probably one of my top choices for cookware you need for emergencies.
This cutlery set will truly be an awesome choice for when an emergency strikes.
