Camping Cutlery & Utensils FAQs

  • Here’s some considerations to keep in mind when choosing the best cutlery for camping: 


    Surprise surprise, the best cutlery for camping is going to be lightweight. Bet you didn’t see that coming! But in all seriousness, camping cutlery is something you can go light on – and we mean really light, like under 20g. 


    Yes, you want ultralight camping cutlery, but it will be worthless if it snaps in half the first time you try to use it. The best camping cutlery will be ultralight AND ultra-durable (did someone say ‘titanium’?) 


    Multi-use camping cutlery can be pretty handy. Fancy a fork that cuts? Or a spoon that folds in half? Have a look at the options and see what you like, but here at Alton, we think simple is best. You can’t go wrong with a trusty titanium spork! 


    The best camping cutlery will put functionality over form, meaning it will do what it is supposed to do. Consider what you need from your cutlery. For all the cool designs out there, sometimes simple is best.  

    Fortunately for you, we’ve put a lot of thought and effort into designing ultralight, ultra-durable camping cutlery that is made with functionality in mind. Check out our camping cutlery sets online today to get yourself kitted out.

  • Many hikers (including us) will tell you that titanium is the best material for camping cutlery because of its excellent combination of durability, ultralight performance, and resistance to corrosion.

    Not only is titanium incredibly strong (we’re talking virtually indestructible), it is one of the lightest metals available, making it perfect for backpackers and hikers who want to carry minimal weight without sacrificing performance.

    Titanium is non-toxic, non-reactive and hypoallergenic, so it will never leach nasty chemicals into your food or drinks. Plus, this same quality means that your titanium cutlery or camping cookware won’t be left with funky aftertaste after you use them. Not sure about you, but we like our coffee to taste like coffee, not last night’s dinner. 

    Titanium camping cutlery may be more expensive than some other metals or materials such as plastics, but it is going to last you for life – and when you’re done, you can pass it on to the next generation and it will still be just as effective as the day you bought it. So yes, maybe you’ll need to spend a little more on a titanium camping set today, but it will outperform and outlast all the competition by a long, long way. 

    Like anything, the best material for camping cutlery will come down to your personal preferences… but it’s hard to go past titanium.

  • The cooking utensils you need for camping are going to depend on your specific plans. Are you only eating dehydrated meals? A long-handled spork and spoon combo and a sharp knife or multi-tool might be all you need. Plan on cooking up a feast over the campfire? You’ll definitely need some tongs, grill and maybe a spatula, as well as all your basic camping cutlery. 

    As a general rule, for adventures where you’ll be carrying your gear over long distances, such as hiking or bikepacking, you’ll want to pack light and take only what you really need. For trips where weight isn’t such a big concern, you can pack more utensils and supplies. 

    So, while we can’t tell you exactly what you need, here’s a general list of cooking utensils that might be useful for camping: 

    Camping Cutlery

    • Fork
    • Spoon 
    • Spork 
    • Knife 

    Camping Cooking Utensils

    • Sharp knife
    • Cutting board
    • Spatula
    • Tongs 
    • Camping grill 
    • Ladle or big spoon
    • Pot gripper
    • Clean up supplies

    Before any camping trip, make a list of everything you think you’ll need, plus any extra items that would be nice to have (but aren’t essential). It takes a bit of trial and error to know what camping cutlery and utensils you need for camping, so consider going on a few day trips as ‘practice runs’ to test out your gear before you head out on a multi-day adventure.
