    So, Iíve tried my setup in the Spiff Kit (Standard and Deluxe) and the HLT2. I definitely prefer the Spiff Kits because all of the pockets are 3D. The flatter half of the HLT2 just didnít work for my stuff.

    Here are pics of my Travel Kitchen setup in a Standard Spiff Kit.

    Everything neatly away:



    On the left, two tea tins (one for caffeinated tea, one for herbal), folding multi-utensils, and one and two ounce Nalgene bottles for vinegar and olive oil.

    In the middle sitting on the mirror, some random salt and pepper packets and a Sheffield made fruit knife with cover.

    On the right, a GSI Outdoor travel spice container, two mini spatulas, a collapsible tea strainer, a travel size of dish soap and a burlap dish scrubbie.




    I originally picked up this set of mini olive oils for trips but with all my trips cancelled for the foreseeable, I decided to just use them up before they went bad instead. But here they are anyway. They each hold 25ml, and the one ounce bottle holds about 30ml and the two ounce about 60ml.

    @Cristina - on the left side - what is that in the middle underneath the tins and above the Nalgene bottles? You mention utensils, but I can't quite make them out.

    It is called Unitensil. Itís a flexible, folding double ended fork/spoon/knife. Because itís thin and flexible it isnít able to spear carrot pieces in a salad but it is great for scooping or for softer items. It folds flat width wise and folds lengthwise and snaps shut for use.



    The website is a bit weird but I think it works better from inside the US:

    Ouch.

    All jokes aside this is great and your travel kitchen setup is really nice. I am still working out what my travel kitchen should be, as it's a major work-in-progress that I expect I'll be refining for awhile.

    @carrot I'm sure spearing you with a plastic fork is against the Forum guidelines Big Grin

    there are other companies that make various types of flat-fold/snap together polypropylene items...
    I don't have these, but have something similar that I leave in one of my emergency kits

    theoretically you could also make custom sizes if you find thick PP sheets and plastic snaps/rivets at craft or DIY shops
    I like all the blues and greys...and all the happy citrus colours too! My search unicorn is the Sapphire Dyneema original Small Shop Bag...

    @Cristina , what do you use the spatulas for? I'm especially intrigued because you have two of them...

    At home, I use mini spatulas nearly every time I prepare food. I use them instead of other utensils. I prefer them for spreading softened butter or jam on toast. I love how easy they are to maneuver in a frying pan. I use the ones with the thinnest edges to flip pancakes or slices of eggplant. I use them to pull every bit of jam or yogurt out of the container. I use them to get every bit of dressing out of the bowl Iíve used to make it. I scrape batter off the sides of mixing bowls when I bake. I sometimes make a brownie or chocolate cake recipe that is mixed in a non-stick saucepan so these are great for mixing and stirring on those easily-scratched surfaces. I prefer spoon shaped ones with a nice thin edge. My favorite one is that but also has an angled point.

    Also I donít like the clinking noise of metal utensils and dishes so the quiet of a spatula is a nice bonus, and my spoons have very heavy handles that will sometimes cause smaller lighter containers to tip over.

    I got these in a pack of five (all different) and I love them so very much.
