    Best thing I ever bought was a slow cooker! Very cheap (£10 from Tesco) and you can cook loads of things in it.

    Hi

    If you don't already have buy a Wok, not a fancy non-stick, but a basic steel one as used by the Chinese.. once treated it's non stick and never wash in hot / soapy water, a wipe out with a paper towel is all that's required..

    one plate to cook the potatoes, rice or pasta ..

    in the Wok cook Indian curry, Chinese stir fry, bolognese sauce, beef stews etc .. can also do breakfast fry ups,

    Woks are great for making taco filling or any of the rice-and-pea sort of dishes... I find nothing beats a wok for preparing an omelet, whether it's a plain cheese omelet or loaded with ham and vegetables.

    Can also be used for tossing salads ..

    Two plates... No problem ..

    There’s a company that comes to our office once a month and leaves a collection of books for the staff to buy, a couple of months ago one of the books caught my eye and I bought it and now keep it in the van.

    It’s called One Pot and Casseroles; it has loads of recipes for dishes that can be cooked using one pot. We’ve tried quite a few now and well impressed with the variety of different recipes. The book is published by Parragon. Queen Street House 4 Queen Street Bath BA1 1HE and retails at £5.99. Goggle it and I am pretty sure that you will get it cheaper. Good luck with your trip to Europe.

    Buy a Skillet, they're brill, we have 3 burners (how posh are we:ROFLMAO:) and no oven. Never use more than 2 burners at a time.

    It works like a mini oven. We have cooked, or should that be Kay, has cooked a Sunday lunch in it, jacket potatoes, whole chickens, stews, breakfasts, etc.

    You can heat pizzas, pies, oven chips, etc.

    Fabulous piece of kit, bit expensive £40 odd quid including the diffuser, but worth every penny. Works on a standard gas hob just like a saucepan, so you don't need hookup.

    Saves on washing up too.

    the ultimate cooking pot is a pressure cooker. less steam ,helps keep damp down .quick for every thing even joints. you can also do a kind of fruit cake if you are in the wilds and need cake. best tool i have . do chicken then cut into quarters then very quickly fry ,looks like they have been roasted. do spuds cut in half just slightly under cook then fry they also taste like roast. its possible to prepare and cook a xmas dinner in just over half an hour with pressurecooker. 15 minutes chicken 5 for spuds 5 for other veg . use water for gravy mix ,drop in xmas pud while you eat main course .quick custard n pudding for afters. only takes 2 rings . sit on taghazoute beach n watch the surf roll in . wont be long summer is coming. cheers alan
    ps, i use a small 3litre one ideal for two. also 5 itre for family size

    Beans in one pan.....Bangers in the other.

    proper food.:thumb:

    if your on hookup invest in a Ramoska or a double skillet.

    the Ramoska only uses 400watts and will cook a whole chicken, roasties and anything else dry cooked at the same time. in a lot less time than a conventional oven too.
    also does pizza, toast (badly), stews/casseroles, bakes cakes/buns/breadrolls, baked spuds...infact anything you can think of.
    do you get the impression i like 'em?:ROFLMAO:

    the double skillet sits on the hob (i think) and is two pans in one. one on top of the other.

    recipes for a 2 burner hob

    Hi. I bought from Argos a 3 tier steamer, GREAT TOOL!! you can steam your veg and also steam fish etc. all over the one gas ring. I also have an oval casserole to cook larger cuts of meat or fish, I have tried the skillets (very expensive) that are sold at the shows, but inside coating did not last long, so I bought in a ferreteria (hardware shop) in Benidorm a tortilla pan, it clips together just like a skillet, it's much better quality and it's less than half the price of the skillet. Happy cooking bambi 2 :thumb:

    I agree with Blisters... the double skillet (on sale at most of the shows) is brilliant... everything from toasted sandwiches to roasts...

    Another vote from here for the skillet.

    Cook meat and potatoes in the bottom, veg in the top. Or
    Turn one pan over and make it into an oven.

    I'm bragging again but I have 2. I think you'll only find them at the shows but their base is in Norfolk.

    Comments like this would be better suited to the Dark Side.
    One here we all try to be helpful, whatever the question.

    Hi Keith
    why not look at these combination oven/grill with 2 leci rings on top OR a cadac gas cooker for bbq,s etc ive done grills, curry in a frying pan, chili the list is endless and camping gas is in easy supply in Europe. Pete:thumb::thumb: Ps also we are getting a induction hob as the new van has no leci ring only 3 gas.

    Comments like this are the very reason that I very rarely respond or ask questions on any forum. The other forum is RIFE with it.
    As the title say's FUN, lets see fun and not snide.
