How many of you have the equipment you need for cooking besides the solar oven and Dutch oven pans? I have a set of cast iron pans, different sizes and even some for baking. I think I have a corn bread pan and a square pan for grilling, a griddle for those pancakes and tortillas. When I see them at thrift store or at garage sales I pick them up and clean them, some need re-seasoning for use.
But I don’t think I have a lot of the little stuff I will need. I have these items in the house but not in storage. I do have a box with all my extra kitchen gadgets, which I need to go thru. These items are from combining two households
2 saucepans and lids (for open fire)
Roasting pan (for solar oven)
Measuring cups (both wet and dry)
Silverware (large serving spoons, mixing spoons, wooden spoons)
A set of knifes (paring knifes for cooking and steak knifes
Ladle (for soup and stews)
Pressure cooker and canning equipment
Lids and rings
Extra jars (in case of breakage)
Bottle opener Can opener (a good one, heavy duty)
Steel wool for pans
Pail, dust pan and brush
Small garbage can to wash dishes
Meat grinder (non-electric)
Coffee pot (Non-electric)
Flour Sifter (just in case of bugs or dirt)
You probably wondering why you need extra stuff if you already have some, but just think if something happens to your house or you break one of those items. You would be hard up to find a replacement. Especially can openers and items that would make your daily chores a lot easier.
Also to this list, you need to make sure your garden tools are in good order. I know for sure that we have several items that need handles and a few more digging tools. Not just shovels, but a post hole digger and some wire. Anything that would help keeps your area secure.
There is a lot more items that can be added to this list, but I don’t have enough room for everything. Look around it’s amazing how much we are still lacking when you see some of these preppers show on TV lately. Happy hunting.
