Those that are homesteaders and/or living off the grid know that this type of lifestyle is about getting back to the basics. Life is centered around frugality and self reliance. Everything on the homestead must have a purpose, if not several different functions, or it is in the way. The same is true for off grid cookware.
When you think about it, off grid cookware has to stand up to high heat and a variety of cooking methods. At any given time you may be cooking over an open fire, on a wood stove, a grill, propane stove, rocket or backpacking stove, a camp stove, or even in a hot box. Just like anything else, having the right equipment for the job makes all the difference in the world. The same is true for cooking. During the time I’ve lived off the grid, I’ve experimented with cooking in numerous ways. The end result is that I’ve found several types of off grid cookware that have stood the test of time.
