Must have cooking appliances or items.

Hi folks

I am soon to be First time Full Time RV'r Just me and my Service dog, I was wondering what cooking items are real must haves for versatility and convenience when Full timing. I have a small to medium crock pot not sure on size, a Ronco Rotisserie I have yet to use, was looking at the New Wave stuff.....HELP! I have not even decided what type or Size RV I will be getting yet though I am leaning toward a Class A 32'-36' so not sure on space available yet. I am not really a cook I eat out way too much but want to learn in a effort to save money.

These are one of the best portable grills available. Get one of these
and do most of your cooking outside.

It can be hooked to the RV line....but takes some parts, etc...

On just the 1lb disposable you can cook 5 - 7 meals....many people get a
small 1gallon tank and hose....this allows you to put the grill anywhere and cook for a month.

If hooked to the RV, you can't move it much. I say try it for a month or so on just the disposable tanks until you find out what works best for you.

No matter what size RV you eventually get you will want to make good use of the space available. Look on-line for nesting cookware, especially induction ready. We use a set from Rapid Chef, Magmaware is another good brand. Nesting cookware is sometimes refered to as Galley ware, try searching on that term.

Unless you get an RV with a residential fridge, most RV fridges are tiny.....you can't cook if you don't have the food....so I say get one of these.


It will run on either 110vac or 12vdc. It can be set as a refrigerator or a freezer with just the turn of the thermostat. Either stock up on frozen food and use the microwave a lot - lol or stock up on fresh food - your choice.

I had such a nice collection of cast iron cookware but gave them all to my Brother for fear they weighed too much to take in a RV considering the same for my dishes and glassware my Bass Pro 32 piece stoneware dishes are all I have so will people have to buy all plastic ware or something to keep weight down bad enough I plan to bring my Astronomy and Music items.

My must-haves:

1.) Crock pot (which you already have)
2.) Cast-iron skillet with heavy lid (for frying, baking, casseroles)
3.) Toaster oven, so you can toast/bake on the CG's dime, instead of using your propane
4.) Small grill for cooking outside when weather permits, so you don't need to heat up the inside of the MH
I've heard good things about New Wave, but don't know about it first-hand.

We use a Keurig coffee maker (there is a lengthy thread about these, use the search tool to find) when we have power. We also carry a "cowboy campfire" coffee percolator for use when there is no power and we do not want to use the generator. This is my favorite coffee maker, but it is a pain to clean in an RV.

Good luck with your new found adventures!
