Cooking Utensils:

Camping Stove Windscreen
If you've every tried to use a gas camping stove in windy conditions, you'll know how frustrating (and very time consuming) a process this can be (particularly if you're famished after a long day of driving/setting us camp). This windscreen is compact in size when stored, but folded out it will provide an effective barrier to shield your camping stove from the elements. Perfect for use with a stove on a slide out or camp kitchen, it will cut down cooking time and gas usage.

Go Fresh Water Straw
Save on space and make use of natural water resources with the Go Fresh Water Straw which removes 99.99% of Bacteria, Virus, Chemicals and Pesticides from water. Perfect for water used for cooking, as you can attach the straw to a standard drink bottle for filtering into a saucepan etc. Also handy for sourcing water used for washing fruit and veg.

Kitchen Sink
The 10L Kitchen Sink by Sea to Summit is the perfect size for washing dishes, as well as numerous other uses (just check the reviews tab to see how ExplorOz'ers have utilised this product in many different travel situations). It also packs away into a tiny pouch which means hardly any weight/space is taken up when on the road. A must have item!
