Camping has always been a big part of summer in my family. There's nothing quite like setting a tent up in the middle of nowhere and spending a few days surrounded by nature instead of the hustle and bustle of every day life. It's a beautiful and peaceful experience. But there are some products that can make a camping trip even easier.
Cooking on a campfire is great, but there are times when you don't want to build a fire. For those times this Single Burner Butane Camp Stove ($24.99) from CHARD is the perfect alternative. It's portable and reliable, and it's great for tailgating, camping and hiking. It features a butane cartridge locking system and safety shut off system. It has a Piezo electric starter and a fully adjustable heat control dial that ignites and regulates the flame. The burner provides a CSA approved 8,500 BTU flame and has a big enough cooking area to accommodate a 10" pan. It comes with a carrying case that holds the camp stove and also has a convenient space to store the butane canister. Cleanup is easy thanks to a removable enamel coated drip tray. It can easily handle your cooking needs while camping.
When camping, it's often a good idea to break down your food supplies into smaller packages. And a great way to do that is by using a vacuum sealer. The NESCO VS-09 Deluxe Vacuum Sealer ($79.99) offers all the versatility and performance you could ever need from a vacuum sealer. It's fully automatic, has a one touch operation and an automatic shut off, all of which makes this vacuum sealer super easy to use. The 110 watt vacuum pump ensures that you get maximum air extraction when sealing dry and moist food items. The pulse vacuum function lets you control the suction for delicate items like pastries, buns or cut produce, while the seal only function prevents over vacuuming and crushing of delicate foods. One handed operation is smooth and easy, thanks to the easy lock handle. This sealer can accommodate up to an 11.8” width bag, providing the versatility needed for a wide range of sealing jobs and it will keep food fresh for up to 5 times longer than traditional methods. You can use the accessory port and hose to attach to canisters for marinating meats quickly or protecting crushable items like cereal. This Vacuum Sealer is compatible with most brands of vacuum sealer bags and rolls, and it comes with sample bag material to get you started.
