Enjoy Cooking Together

The fun of cooking together with your kids and family will be missed when you choose to go for readymade food. You can include cooking as an activity for kids while camping. As a matter of truth, nobody is going to cook a feast right in the middle of the woods as it’ll take lots of time and effort. Cooking a simple meal or re-heating the food you bought (in one-day camping) is the sensible thing to do. So you can ask the kids to chop vegetables or fetch some water, if they are over age 10 you can even ask them to build a fire or look after the cooking meal. 

As already said pie iron makes cooking in the woods effortless and fun. Unlike normal house utensils, it has lengthy handlebars, lengthy enough to hold it far from the fire. So even if you’re asking the kids to look after the pan, they’ll be very much safe from fire.

It’s very handy and lightweight; in fact, you’ll be carrying much less weight than actually carrying a fully cooked meal.

Moreover, the pie iron is a multi-purpose product, you can use it to grill to enjoy your little barbeque party, use it as a pan or pot to cook anything and everything.
