    I have had a Beauclaire and Cadac (still got Cadac for home) but found both a pain to clean.

    So now have this campingaz kitchen, great as wash in square wash basin from van, fat drips onto water underneath griddle.

    Easy to store to

    We use a conventional gas barby, but with a tin baking tray on top instead of the fake coals. This allows you do eggs on it as well when we use it for brekkie.

    We have a Cadac-love the way it cooks,but hate the cleaning.Have just bought (on advice from Susy @ Bring and Buy) the Paella pan-theory being that as it's larger than Cadac itself and has high lip,there'll be less grease getting inside.

    We have a Weber Smoky Joe when away in Motorhome, it also doubles up as a fire when it gets cold. The little camping stove we use for frying the bacon on a Sunday ( cant do with smell of fat in van so cook it outside )

    This is just what we do too:thumb:
    We even put the paella pan on the gas hob inside , over all 4 rings.
    If its blowing a gale and we dont want to put up the wind out awning . It fits perfectly. With there being 5 of us it means we can cook breakfast all in 1 pan all at the same time , and sit down and eat together:thumb:
    Same with the steak , burgers ribs , sausages etc. at tea time.
    Paella pans are great .
    Very easy to clean , and stop the rest of the cadac getting greasy and dirty too.
    Saves on the washing up too !
