I try to enjoy the best food I can whilst fishing, and it goes without saying that a decent carp fishing cooking set is key.
Whether preparing, cooking, or serving, having the right utensils and cookware to hand makes eating and drinking far more pleasurable!
I’ve handpicked the best brew kits, cutlery sets, toasters and cook sets so you too can have everything you need – because eating well on the bank is super important.
Join me as I review cooking sets from Trakker, Nash, Fox and many others below…
1. Fox Camolite brew kit
Designed to fit in nicely onto the Explorer barrow range, this handy little brew kit makes it easier to keep everything together with your cooking set.
The inclusion of four storage containers to keep your coffee, tea and sugar (or hot chocolate if you’re feeling flush!) makes it ideal, especially as the wife was becoming upset at me stealing her containers out of the kitchen!
You also get two mugs, one for yourself and a friend, or if you have no friends, a spare for work or at home.
I used the aluminium bottle as my emergency water supply, but you can use it for milk if you wish.
Onto the bag next, which, as you may have guessed, is camo to fit in with the Camolite range. Inside this, there is a stiffened divider so can keep your brew kit organised as you wish.
The whole bag is thermally insulated, so if you did decide to use the bottle for milk, it will last that bit longer!
Space has been left for keeping a spare gas canister!
I like this cookware bag, it has everything you need to keep your brew kit together, and if you do own a Voyager barrow, it fits neatly amongst all your other luggage.
An essential item on any fishing trip!
Contents: Camolite Carry Case, 2 x Voyager Ceramic Mugs, 2 x Large Screw Top Jars, 2 x Small Screw Top Jars, 1 Stainless Teaspoon, 1 x 250ml Aluminium Bottle
2. Trakker nxg Deluxe Food Set
Next up on my carp fishing cooking set list is this handy little food set from Trakker.
Practical for a day session, although I’m sure it be ok for a longer trip, it contains everything you’ll need to eat, drink and stay warm on the bank.
Forming part of the NXG range, which also includes a brew kit, cookware bag and a gas canister cover, this food set contains cutlery, mugs, plates and pots for storing tea, coffee, sugar or cooking sauces!
A pair of plastic mugs finish off the set, which all pack away into a heavy duty carry case that features a strong EVA carry handle.
I think this is a great addition to the range, and goes beyond a traditional brew kit!
Contents: 2 x Square Plates, Tea Towel, 2 x Spoons, 2 x Forks, 2 x Knives, 2 x Green Pots, 2 x 300ml Plastic Mugs, Heavy-duty Carry Case
Material: 600D polyester Dimensions: (L) 27cm x (W) 27cm x (H) 10cm
3. Ridge Monkey DLX Plate Set
Going back to the ‘square concept’, which does make the plates more stackable, Ridge Monkey have released three plate sets here.
Designed for serving various meals on, there are long, standard and large sets available.
Made from a strong BPA-free melamine material, each features a unique lip which prevents spills if you’re eating from your lap.
Easy-to-clean, you can either buy the plates separately, or as I mentioned in a set which includes bespoke cutlery.
There is a handy neoprene pouch, which holds the cutlery, and is perfect for storing away into a cooking set bag.
A Ridge Monkey branded towel (for wiping messy hands, or drying after use) is also included.
The plates are dishwasher safe, but not suitable for microwave use.
4. JRC Cocoon Brew Kit Bag
I know this is not strictly a cookware or brew kit, but the reason I wanted to include the JRC Brew Bag was because of the really great folding design!
Designed to keep things seperate, you can fit plenty of cookware inside.
I managed to pack my coffee, tea, sugar, a mug, my gas canister and cutlery with space left over!
The bag itself was very strong and durable, with padding in all the areas that are likely to get knocked around.
It’s also funny lined, with the kit bag itself dirt and water repellent.
If you’re looking for something simple, and already own all the pots, cutlery and plates etc, then this could be the ideal storage solution without breaking the bank.
You could even use it purely for storing your kettle, gas stove and mug if you already own a brew kit.
Features: Clever Folding Design | Dirt & Water Repellant | Two Zippable Compartments | Dividers | Made from JX73 Material | Plenty Of Padding
5. Nash KNX Brew Kit Bag
I like everything about the Nash KNX Luggage, and as I write this, I’m hearing that this is now discontinued, although tackle shops and the like are still selling remaining stock!
Perfect for weekends where you need a bit of storage for all your cookware and utensils, this bag is very spacious, and can easily hold a kettle, mug and gas stove.
Webbed carry handles (like the rest of the range) make it easy to transport, whilst the rectangular shape makes storage a breeze!
If you can still get your hands on one, it would make a great gift or additional bag to compliment your existing luggage.
Stylish, hardwearing and perfect for storing your cookware, the Nash KNX Brew Kit is compact and practical.

7. Ridge Monkey Sandwich Toaster
The Connect Compact Sandwich Toaster is arguably the best piece of kit Ridge Monkey have released!

The unique detachable hinge system means you can use the pans individually if you wanted, with each featuring a one-touch release handle.
