Cook Kit amendments

Updated: Nov 29, 2023

I have been thinking about my meal options on the WHW and was not planning on eating out in the evenings and also don't want to spend all my time eating hiking meals.

I know that on route we will be passing a few local shops which will give me the option to by fresh ingredients and the ability to cook good healthy meals with a high calorie count.

My only concern is with the weight of my current cooking kit. Mostly stainless steal or aluminium and a little to heavy. If I want to cook fresh I need to keep the weight down as much as possible.

I made the decision to buy a decent pan although not that light at 301 g. I bought the Jetboil Summit Skillet which is a great little pan with a ceramic coating.

I also wanted a better option for cooking vegetables and the like. I have a 550ml titanium pot which is great for heating water for hiking meals but I felt for me that a larger light weight pot would be better.

I opted for a Lixada titanium 900ml pot. The weight is 275 g which was a bit heavier than I wanted but also less expensive than other brands.

I hope the decisions I have made are the right ones for me and allow me to cook a variety of different meals whilst on the trail.

I guess only time will tell.
