Even cooking a simple meal requires a few tools. Sure, you could serve up your ramen with the spoon you scrounged at the gas station, but if you’ve moved past that point in your life, try something like this set from GSI. This simple accessory kit includes a tough but flexible polyester spatula (safe to use with nonstick-coated pots and pans), a handled measuring cup (1 -4 oz.), steel whisk, and cheese grater.
The spatula and measuring cup have straightforward telescoping mechanisms that let them collapse to about 4” long. And once dinner is done, you can use the scrubby sponge and absorbent towel for cleaning up. Just remember, it’s Mother’s Day. You do the dishes. $15; 6.4 oz.; gsioutdoors.com
