With the right tools, you can cook almost anything over the campfire. Griddles can make breakfasts like eggs and pancakes while steel baskets can hold everything from grilled cheese to corn-on-the-cob. We searched Amazon for the best camping cookware and these 15 awesome accessories were some of our favorite finds.
1. These replicas of the 1949 Toas-Tite Grill make hot toasted sandwiches.
You can use these aluminum grills over the campfire, on BBQs, or gas/electric stoves. They’re a replica of the classic 1949 Toas-Tite and still come in retro-style packaging along with the original recipe booklets. Not feeling a sandwich? They can also be used to make other dishes and desserts, like omelettes, s’mores, and pizza. Check them out on Amazon here.
2. Roast marshmallows (and hot dogs) with these fishing pole roasters from Fire Buggz.
They’re easy to use: just slide your marshmallows or hot dogs onto the prongs at the end, kick back, and dangle them over the flame. The roasters are especially great for kids because they have to sit further away from the fire. You can find them here.
3. Bake fluffy golden waffles using these Cast Iron Waffle Makers.
The waffle makers feature a long steel and wood handle to keep your hands away from the heat. Get yours here.
