Kitchen Setup Suggestions

So I am finally going to invest into a real kitchen setup. I am looking for the folding kitchen, new stove, cook wear. misc. what else? i know lots, never ending. BUT, any suggestions on possibly the whole setup for sale. or cheaper ways to build it to make it happen. Thanks everyone.************more snow, more water!

The Coleman fold-n-go stove is way cheaper than the partner, compact, and still puts off 10,000 BTUs. Someday I want a partner stove, but they are expensive and the Coleman works great even when it gets wet and fits well in my kitchen box.

Coleman - Fold N Go Propane InstaStart Stove -

Instead of a folding kitchen, consider a kitchen drybox- it carries everything on the boat and has legs to transform it into a table/cabinet at camp. Not cheap, but very efficient. I had mine made by a metal works company in GJ, but I think Retretec makes them, too.

I'll throw in this one thing, we picked them up for car camping and love them for our river kitchen because they are so compact.

Whats for dinner? I like four burners so I carry two, 2 burner small coleman stoves (I like to get everything going at once, coffee, bacon, eggs, potatoes, etc.). Dutch Oven, steel griddle for open fire or use on stove, coffee pot, fire grate. I would start here and add on which ever way fits your cooking style.

I like the Seattle Sports Super Sinks for my dish line, they have a metal ring around them to keep them open but they collapse down nice and small for storage.

I'll second that collapse able strainer.

A decent set of kitchen knives are an essential, more people cut themselves in the kitchen due to dull knives than anything else other than maybe being too drunk.

A killer spice box is a must.

I am a fan of pre-cooking and using food saver type sealed bags - or using doubled up freezer bags. I can cook faster and cleaner in my home than on the river. This also means less dishes and time spent cooking and cleaning while on the river. The heat sealed bags can be dropped in boiling water to re-heat. I also like things like pre-made breakfast burritos, wrapped in foil and steamed to re-heat. Then again it is amazing what you can cook in a well equipped river kitchen.

Do those every self-collapse on you when using hot water? We have some of their square ones, and while I can deal with their "personality", others on trips seem to hit a brick wall. I love collapsible, and might have to check out those round ones, even though they're a bit spendy comparatively.
