Campsite Cooking Gear: Combekk, Igloo, Coleman, Bialetti, Cuisinart


Here’s some choice equipment for cooking like a pro in the wild. Toss the packets of dehydrated soup and make a real meal at the campsite instead.

1. Combekk Dutch Oven With Thermometer

This Dutch oven is, in fact, made in the Netherlands. Combekk’s 4-liter pot is crafted from recycled iron—railroad track, mostly—and has a thermometer built into its sidewall. Set the whole thing in the campfire coals; the 6-mm-thick bottom keeps heat distributed evenly.
$300

2. Bialetti Mini Express 2-Cup Stove-Top Coffee Maker

A morning espresso blocks the sleep-­inducing adenosine molecules in your brain, making you alert enough to read a trail map. Bialetti’s fountain pours two shots in about five minutes. Like the popular moka pot, it’s unfussy and made of durable aluminum.
$35

3. Igloo BMX 25 Cooler

Igloo’s new BMX line is a departure from the decades-old brand’s usual style. The 25-quart cooler has been modernized with beefy latches, stainless steel kick plates, and tie-down loops for securing the load in your ride. It’ll keep ice icy for four days at 90 degrees Fahrenheit, so you can stay awhile.
$55

4. Coleman Vacuum Insulated Stainless Steel Growler

The tent has been pitched, all the gear has been stowed away. Now you deserve a beer. Coleman’s new growler holds several of them. If you don’t finish all 64 ounces of craft brew on the first night, this double -walled flagon maintains its chill for up to three days.
$40

5. Cuisinart Venture Portable Gas Grill

When it’s all packed up, the car-camping-­friendly Venture looks more like a picnic basket than a grill. That simplicity belies its smart, versatile design. The wooden lid doubles as a cutting board that can be nestled snugly onto the base—which in turn doubles as a stash spot for the propane canister.
$200
