Who doesn’t love bacon that is cooked evenly? Cooking bacon in a frying pan means you have to cope with oil splatter while ensuring that it doesn’t curl up or get stiff. A heavy press is the answer to all your bacon-cooking woes. A cast iron bacon press will flatten your breakfast meat and ensure even cooking.

5. Herb Mill for Fresh Herbs

Adding fresh herbs to your cooking just got easier! An herb mill gadget is similar to a pepper grinder, and you can grind fresh herbs like dill, rosemary, sage, or parsley. Adding fresh herbs over dried herbs to your cooking makes meals even more flavorful!

6. Dainty Stainless Steel Measuring Spoons and Cups

A set of stainless steel measuring spoons and cups is very handy when you have to measure your ingredients precisely. The measurement indicators ensure that you measure up the right amounts of ingredients for your cooking. With flat bottoms, they can be rested evenly on your countertop. Coming in a variety of measurements, stainless steel spoons and cups are dishwasher safe.

The Importance of Making a Camping Checklist

Camping can be hard work, but it’s the preparation that’s even harder. There are usually a lot of things to do in order to make sure that you and your family or friends have the perfect camping experience. But sometimes you might get to your destination and discover that you have left out one or more crucial things.

There is no dispute that preparation and organization for a camping trip can be quite overwhelming, but if it is done right, you would see at the end of the day, that it was worth the stress. This is why it is important to ensure optimum planning and execution. For this to be possible, it is advised that in addition to a to-do-list, you should have a camping checklist to remind you of every important detail.

Why You Should Have a Camping Checklist

Creating a camping checklist makes for a happy and always ready camper. It also prevents mishaps.  A proper camping checklist should include every essential thing you would need for your camping activities, organized into various categories such as shelter, clothing, kitchen, food, personal items, first aid kit, informational items, etc. These categories should be organized by importance. However, it is important that you should not list more than you can handle or more than is necessary for your outdoor adventure.

Camping checklists vary depending on the kind of camping and outdoor activities involved. You should not go on the internet and compile a list of just any camping checklist. Of course, you can research camping checklists, but you have to put into consideration the kind of camping you are doing. It could be backpacking, camping with kids, canoe camping, social camping, etc. You have to be specific and take note of those things that are specifically important to your trip, and those things which are generally needed in all camping trips no matter the kind of camping being embarked on.
