I love to cook, but since moving into our camper trailer I have learned new ways to cook with different appliances. Most campers are not made with a lot of cabinet space. My 30′ camper has a tiny corner kitchen. The reason we have such a small kitchen space is we wanted a full size bath. So we have a rear bath with a full size shower.  I might rethink the kitchen space on my next purchase lol.


We were told before we moved in that most people never used their ovens because let’s face it they are smaller than your house oven. Well they can be picky to use. Food tends to burn on the bottom because the ovens are so small. To fix that problem, you can add a 12×12″ tile to the bottom of your oven on the rack above the flames. You can find these tiles at any Home Depot or Lowes or any home improvement store very cheaply.


The second appliance I found was the Instant Pot.

Instant Pot® is a smart multi-use Electric Pressure Cooker designed with the objective of being Convenient, Dependable and Safe. It speeds up cooking by 2-6 times making it extremely energy-efficient, while, preserving nutrients and preparing healthy, tasty dishes.

Instant Pot Lux V3 6-In-1 Programmable multi-cooker replaces 6 kitchen appliances, it combines the functions of a Pressure Cooker, Slow Cooker, Rice Cooker, Sauté, Steamer, and Warmer. 12 smart built-in programs – Soup/Broth, Meat/Stew, Cake, Egg, Sauté, Rice, Multigrain, Porridge, Pressure Cook, Steam, Keep Warm and Slow Cook, your favourite dishes are as easy as pressing a button. The new Cake Maker is ideal for New York style cheesecake, banana bread and other moist cakes, the Egg Program prepares, soft, medium and hard-boiled eggs perfectly in just a few minutes.

This is pretty much all I ever use. I can just throw something straight from the freezer into the pot..add my water or gravy or whatever liquid I want..lock down my lid..set my time and let it go. I can have supper ready in about 45 minutes.

The rice cooker on it is also amazing.
