So, if I’m being real, I’m not much of a camper. But…as a self-proclaimed “Adventure Mom,” I’m trying to become one.
I want my kids to LOVE being outdoors and to know how to live and play in the outdoors.
Enter Coghlan’s. I met these fine folks at the Summer 2013 Outdoor Retailers show.
They provided me with some great equipment to get started on family fun times outdoors. One of the products I got really excited about was this Hard Anodized Aluminum Cookset. Normally when we “camp” it’s in our backyard, and we do all the cooking in the house.
When we have camped in the wilderness, I’ve usually just brought food that doesn’t require a whole lot of cooking. We eat sandwiches, and cold cereal, things like that.
As I opened the box, I was delighted to find there were so many pieces to this set and that they all nested together and were compact for storage. I also love the panhandles and how they swing in or out depending on what you’re doing with the pan.
I also love the vent in the top. There perfect for straining excess water from the pan with out fear of dumping the pan’s contents.
I cooked up the chili on my outdoor grill at home before we left for the cookout. I’d recommend using this cookset on any grill that had a burner. Indoor pans don’t always enjoy being used outside on the grill. Don’t ask me how I know that’s true (#pansiveruined). I’m glad to have a designated outdoor pan set.
It was perfect addition to our fun party. Everyone loved the chili and I loved the pan I cooked it in. I also loved the little cup/scoop that comes in the set. It’s perfect for both serving and eating out of.
