How To Make Toast On Your Next Camping Trip
Use a Camping Toaster
This is a fairly quick and painless way of making toast using your existing gas stove.
Over an Open Fire
You can use a toasting fork or a grill over an open fire. Can be a lot of work for a slice of toast! Plus many campsites do not allow open fires. But if you have one for toasting marshmallows then try this method.
In a Frying Pan
Onto a dry pan pop a slice of bread and turn onto a medium heat. Try to weigh it down, turn over and repeat. Creates super dry toast but can be an option if you don’t wish to get specific kit.
Here’s a short video on how to use a horizontal camping toaster.
What To Consider When Choosing Your Perfect Camping Toaster
Ease of use
Most of the camping toasters are straight forward enough to operate. If you have power hook up then a small low wattage electrical toaster is super simple. The camping toaster like the one from Primus are simple enough but can take a while to master cooking the perfect bit of toast.
How long to toast perfection?
Is speed an issue? Most will cook a slice of toast in a few minutes, less so to burn it!
Do you want multi-function?
You may wish to opt for a camping gas stove that doubles up as a grill. Or a toasting fork that you can use for marshmallows. Or a sandwich toaster can cook all three of your daily meals!
Weight and size could be important if you’re into lightweight camping. Horizontal camping toasters are good for this as you can fold them up to almost nothing.
Ease of cleaning
On the flip side horizontal ones have lots of hard to access areas so a simple wipe clean is not possible.
I hope this list of the best camping toasters was helpful.
