Ever been getting ready to go camping and hoped that you had everything packed up? Half of the stuff you packed in your totes is probably kitchenware like stainless steel pots you grabbed from your kitchen.

It’s a nightmare, we know. But wouldn’t it be great if there was a stainless steel camping cookware set that made packing for a weekend getaway a total breeze? Not only will you have everything you need in one tidy package, but stainless steel would be incredibly durable and easy to clean – perfect for those who love to camp but hate packing for it.

What if I told you something like that exists? There are camping cookware sets that are made explicitly for camp cooking. We’re not talking about the heavy cast iron cookware, we’re talking about camp cookware that is designed to be lightweight and great for camping.

Introducing the KUB by Warden Outdoors.

Food and camping go together like, well, s’mores and camping. But the process of cooking while camping can often be a pain. That’s where KUB comes in.

KUB is short for “Kitchen Utinsel Box.” It’s an all-in-one stainless steel camping cookware set with everything you need to make gourmet meals while roughing it in the great outdoors. After all, around here, we’re all about camping in style and comfort (ahem, glamping?). So the KUB fits in nicely.

The KUB is not only revolutionizing the way people think about stainless steel cookware but how we camp and dine all together. It’s one of the best camping cookware sets we’ve seen in a long time.

No more heavy, bulky pot set and pans taking up valuable space in your pack- the KUB is light, compact, and perfect for any outdoor adventure. We’re confident you’re going to love taking it on your future camping trips.

What sets apart this stainless steel camping cookware set?

Of course, there are other cookware sets on the market. You probably have tried some of them. But what makes the KUB different than every other cookware set is its design and functionality, which minimizes its footprint. Which, we can all agree, is pretty darn important when you’re trying to pack light.

The KUB was designed with the serious camper and hiker in mind. And while it’s excellent for cooking gourmet meals, it’s also perfect for a quick cup of coffee or tea.

Every detail- from the nesting design to the mobility of the kit– has been carefully considered to improve your camping experience. The result is a stainless steel cookware set that is durable and easy to take with you.

And probably the best part of this set is that it’s all-inclusive. Everything you need to make a great meal outdoors- from a pot to a skillet to utensils- fits snugly into the KUB. No more packing and unpacking multiple items. Just grab the KUB, and you’re good to go.

What’s included?

When you first get the weatherproof ABS plastic box, you may wonder how much can fit inside. A lot, as it turns out. It’s rather impressive given the compact size.

This is the complete kit in all of it’s glory. It’s very well constructed.

Whether you’re car camping or backpacking with a tent, you’ll need something to cook with. The KUB stainless steel cookware set includes an entire kitchen (and dining room)—

  • 10″ 3-play pan. Somewhat of the foundation of the set since you can’t cook without a fry pan.
  • 1.4L Coffee Kettle with Perculator. There’s nothing like watching the sunrise over the lake with a cup of coffee.
  • 12″ Grill Grate. Just add a campfire, and you have a cooktop!
  • Four sets of 10″ Stainless Steel Plates, Knives, Forks, and Spoons. Great for the environment since you don’t have to throw away plasticware.
  • Four Double-Wall Stainless Steel Cups and Bowls. Double-walled so you don’t burn yourself.
  • 5’x7′ Nylon Table Cloth. The set wouldn’t be complete without a table cloth.
  • Two Food-Grade Cutting Sheets. Wow, these were a pleasant surprise!
  • Stainless Steel Spatula. A necessity when cooking on the grill (or grate).
  • Stainless Steel Soup Spoon. Not sure how this is used with the set since there isn’t a pot, but we’ll take it. We always need a servicing spoon.
  • 12″ Tongs. Great for flipping the kabobs.
  • Stainless Steel Chef Knife. After all, you need to cut up those veggies somehow.
  • Stainless Steel Can Opener. We all got to the campsite and realized we couldn’t open the beans because we had forgotten this.
  • Corkscrew/Beer/Wine Opener. Ah yes, camping without beer is just sitting in the woods.

It all fits in the compact case!

It’s incredible how much fits into this small stainless steel cookware set. The entire kit weighs 20% lighter than if you packed up everything from home, which is impressive given everything included.

The next time you go camping, glamping, car camping, or hiking- make sure to bring along the KUB stainless steel cookware set. It will improve your outdoor experience, and you won’t forget any essential kitchen items at home.

Why we love this.

We love camping, and we love eating. We’re pretty sure everyone can agree that food just tastes better when you’re outdoors. That’s why the KUB stainless steel cookware set is one of our favorite things.

It has everything you need to make great food while camping, and it’s all very compact and light. That’s something you just don’t find in any other camp kitchen set on the market. Trust us, we’ve tried a lot of camping cookware sets over the years.

The KUB also comes with a few extras that we weren’t expecting, like the food-grade cutting sheets and the table cloth. These are nice touches that make the set even more complete. A little functionality mixed with a bit of style- that’s what we like to see.

Stainless steel and lightweight.

We also appreciate that everything in the set is stainless steel- from the pots and pans to the utensils. This means we can use the KUB repeatedly without worrying about it breaking down or getting damaged. When you’re in the backwoods, you never know what might happen. So it’s good to know that your cookware can take a beating.

While it doesn’t have a non-stick coating like some other cook sets, it’s stainless steel so you shouldn’t have any problems. Food sticks to other cook sets that are made of cast iron when they get piping hot. You don’t have that problem with this set.

Most likely the best part of this set is that it comes in a extremely durable case. Packing up has never been easier. The case has strap points and wheels making it one of the most versatile pieces of camping equipment I’ve ever seen. That’s one of the biggest advantages this set has over the rest of the sets you’ll find.

The KUB has an Extremely Durable Case
The KUB’s box is simply amazing. It’s durable and versatile.

No pot included unfortunately.

The only downside to the KUB stainless steel cookware set is that it doesn’t come with a pot. That means I’ll have to bring one along to cook my favorite campfire chili. But given everything else that’s included, we’re willing to overlook this one small detail.

We think that’s how they save on a lot of space is by leaving out the stainless steel pot. But who needs stainless steel pots when you have a frying pan? Everything that is delicious can be made in a frying pan (that’s a very unhealthy way to approach it haha).

Overall, we think the KUB stainless steel cookware set is an excellent choice for anyone looking for a complete, compact, and durable cooking solution for their next camping trip. It has everything you need to make great food, and it’s built to last.

We give it two thumbs up! It’s by far our favorite cookware!

    This project ended up being a total joke. Instead of the awesome case we were promised, it “evolved” into a lame zipper bag with nominal nods to organization.
