Dine Under the Stars with the Bugaboo Camper Cook Set Featuring Teflon – Review & Giveaway


There’s nothin’ you can do, nothin’ you can say,
Nothin’ you can throw our way come Friday!

That’s right, folks! It is finally Friday! And that means nothing more than a weekend full of awesomeness ahead of us. We’ll very likely be spending somewhere on the shoreline soaking up the sun but last weekend, well, that was interesting. We went camping! With the little ones, we didn’t go all out with the middle-of-the-wilderness camping but opted for a 5th wheel, a campfire, and some good ol’ s’mores. Regardless of how much we were or weren’t (technically) roughing it, we still had a blast.

Now, I have only gone “real” camping a few times in my life, all of which our diet pretty much consisted of nothing but s’mores. I do recall one time where my friend’s dad did surprise us with a steak and baked potato dinner over the campfire’s grate but that was the extent of our 5,000-star (outdoors, starry nights, get it?) eating. I’ve never really thought twice about it and, during most camping trips, we’ve always typically stuck to the easier foods like hotdogs. Recently, I had the opportunity to try out a new product that finally allows you to cook and eat well while in the wilderness. Sure, you could pack your entire kitchen’s contents and, true, you could just drive up in a snazzy camper, but sometimes you just want to go “real” camping and that is where this truly comes in handy.

I’m sure many, if not all, of you are familiar with the DuPont Teflon brand, correct? We, personally, love having it in our own kitchen and I cannot tell you how many times its nonstick surface has saved us from a nasty, gooey, stuck-on mess. It really is a life saver in the kitchen but, unfortunately, not all luxuries can join us in the middle of the forest for a camping trip… until now.


Meet the Bugaboo Camper Cook Set. This nifty little set has everything that you need for your outdoor mealtimes. Perfect for our family of four, it holds all of our eating, drinking, cooking, and cleaning necessities for any trip. Whether we’re picnicking, hiking, or full-fledged camping, the Bugaboo Camper Cook Set has us covered and then some. Including place settings for four along with cookware, it is a great addition to your camping and/or travelling gear. And the best part? It all fits into this adorable little carrying case that is, not only a space saver, but chock full of, literally, everything that you’ll need!


The brilliant idea to color code the place settings was a feature that went over extremely well with the kids. They could each choose their own color and knew that it was meant just for them.

We ended up making a favorite chicken pasta dish of ours. Since the Bugaboo Camper Cook Set included, both, the pot for the pasta as well as the skillet needed to cook the chicken, making this was a breeze. The included lid also doubles as a strainer so it worked perfectly for this particular dish.

The biggest test that we put it to was the cleanup. Thankfully, though, the DuPont Teflon Classic nonstick cook surface saves the day by, both, resisting scratches and speeding up the cleaning process. There is no need for scrubbing furiously because these nonstick coated pots and pan hold true to the DuPont Teflon name. Cooking over an open flame is no longer an issue either! Your food will, without a doubt, cook evenly and cleanup is a cinch. You can even use the sack as a wash bin!

And our meal turned out wonderfully!

After all is said and done, simply stack the gear back up, place it all in the carrying sack, and you’re good to go on your next adventure!

  1. I would use steak cut up pour Italian dressing over and cook it away slowly with the meat then brown and eat is delicious,

  2. Lee Ann Cameron on

    I dont think there is anything you could not cook lol…I can imagine cooking a whole dinner, steak, potatoes beans …the only thing I saw missing was a coffee pot lol…I love this. Amazing set

  3. Our last camping trip we made this delicious peach cobbler. We made do, but it was not easy to cook in the pot we have. It would be great to have a nice set like this to cook with.

  4. I would cook pork and beans with hot dogs. I’m pretty basic when out camping 🙂


  5. Meegan Whitford on

    I am not sure if I win this i would give it to my cousin they love to go camping and spend most of their free time during the good months camping!

  6. I’d cook taco meat for walking tacos. I’d also cook chili and ham and beans. Thanks.

  7. paulette schneider on

    My favorite Bertolli gnocchi–dried comes in a bag for easy portability, then on to foraging for
    greens to make a simple forest pesto to top it off.

  8. Barbara Bradford on

    I would definitely cook chili-mac. I always pre-make our meals in Zip-Lock baggies. Just add water & cook.

  9. Eileen Richter on

    Last year we were invited to an amazing campout and we made Quinoa, scrambled eggs, some special sausage, spices, onions, etc. It was SO good, but i’d even go further and lightly grill them up wrapped in tortillas after stuffing them. And of course add a bit of cheese. maybe swiss or something with some tang. We DO live in Wisconsin!

    Dang…that was so good! I gotta find the recipe now!

  10. I’d cook some Chicken Primavera!! This set is wonderful cooking and what a spacesaver in a camp trailer!! Wow I love it!

  11. we always cook grilled pork chops , corn, green beans and mac and cheese 🙂
    it’s an always on the menu while camping.

  12. Hmm well I would have to try out that strainer lid and make a noodle dish. Maybe a chicken, broccoli Alfredo.

  13. Rebecca Miller on

    Fish definitely, my kids and their dad are very much into fishing, not to mention we could cook shrimp, pasta, chili….so much more.

  14. Diane Wareing on

    A good curry always goes down well with my family and friends. So that would be the first thing I did with it.

  15. Cynthia Stacey on

    I would make so many meals when camping. Beans and Franks, Pasta with meat sauce, steak and shrimp, Stew, Fish Stew, etc……….[…] Eighty MPH Mom – Bugaboo Camper Cook Set (Rafflecopter) […] What a great idea!!!

  16. I would cool a little of everything. Stew being one of the first and with all the great sealed containers, to store lots of ingredients, it could be one damn nice stew.

  17. Peggy Humbracht on

    Depending on time of year. Chili is always a great stand by for chilly days and evenings and of course the fresh pan fried fish I just caught.

  18. Tracey Belcher on

    WIth such a fantastic set I really could cook a feast! I would probably make everyone a really full english breakfast with poached eggs, beans, bacon, sausages, toms,

  19. I need this in my life, I actual was just looking at my Teflon pan and how terrible it is, there is no more scratch resistance and its horror cooking with it. The oil pops on my skin regularly, but because I am on a budget I do not have a choice but to use what I have. So this would be wonderful.

  20. Jasmine Scheller on

    I would love to win ths set!! I would be perfect for cooking trout, and making sausage and egg breakfast burritos while we’re out camping.

  21. elizabeth anderson on

    Everything! I have been wanting to camp and be able to cook every meal myself. Eggs for breakfast would be the first though, YUM!

  22. I’m not sure because so many things come to mind. When I was a child and we went camping we always had scrambled eggs, sausage, cheese mixed together and served on a toasted tortilla shell. I would probably make that since I have never made that for my children.

  23. I would probably cook up a feat at camping, baked beans, steaks, grilled seafood, lots of veggies, and a peach cobbler for dessert! etc.

  24. I would cook some amazing pork adobo for my family. Always a great hit with everyone and rarely any leftovers remain. And if there are leftovers, they taste even better the next day!

  25. I’ve got a packaged apple crisp that I’d like to give a shot… and before that I’d start with a mix of ramen noodles, canned chicken, instant potatoes and sweet peas for a tasty, filling meal.

  26. What couldnt you cook? I had never imagined of cooking pasta camping until your post. I think for fall camping a nice hearty potato soup sounds yummy. Thank you for the wonderful giveaway!

  27. Lyndi Malarchuk on

    One of our campfire favorites is potatoes, eggs, and bacon. Everyone loves it, so I’d make that! This is easily the coolest “mess kit” I’ve EVER seen!!

  28. I would go on the most amazing camping road ever with my friends ever if I this.

    Also– I’m vacationing outside of the States right now (hence the IP address) but I am a US citizen and stuff!

  29. I would actually give this to my brother to use when he takes his six kids camping. I am sure their family of eight would cook many things in this.

  30. Darlene Sullins on

    We would cook freshly caught fish and the list would continue! This is sooo neat!!! I’ve never seen something like that before!!!
