Space is always on my mind when adding anything to go into the truck. Food, clothes, even entertainment. A 26in flat screen tv is awesome for a truck !
But when deciding to cook in a truck, its not as easy as a flat screen tv/dvd combo and dvds.
No matter which cooking vessels or equipment you decide, the basics are the utensils you cook with.
Mine are :
1 wooden slotted spatula
1 wooden slotted spoon
1 stainless steel garlic press
1 silicone whisk
1 pair of kitchen shears
Knives (cleaver, chopping knife, 2 steak knives)
2 silicon spatulas (slotted and solid)
2 silicon spoons (slotted and solid)
1 silcon tongs
1 cheese grater
1 stainless steel can opener
4 forks, spoons and butter knives
All fit neatly inside a drawer.
I found if you wrap the wooden utensils and keep the whisk away from the metal utensils, they stay much nicer looking, otherwise the metal against them can ugly out the others with black streaks.
I keep the drawer in a cabinet next to 4 Corelle plates and bowls.
Other bowls for storage ( I find the square with a locking cap the best ), I keep behind them.
1 10 in. stainless steel skillet ( tossed the teflon for good )
1 anodized 2 quart saucepan
1 dishpan that also stores dry goods when not in use.
1 small bottle of ultra concentrated dish soap, stored in dish pan
And that’s pretty much it for the basics.
Whether you microwave ⬅ not for me, not versitile enough, use gas or electric, I use both, the basics will work mostly with all 3.
