If you’re heading to a rental house for a weekend, a week, or all month long, you don’t want to show up empty-handed, expecting to prepare dinners for the family. Because chances are that all you’re going to find is a few dull knives and a bottle of expired canola oil. Instead, come prepared with these must-have ingredients and gadgets to stock any rental kitchen so you can enjoy delicious meals from morning to night.
If you’re packing light or traveling by air, it might be easier to have these vacation kitchen essentials delivered so everything is there when you show up. Hungryroot and Instacart are great services to stock up on basics, as well as fresh produce and complete meals. Fortunately, because most of these pantry essentials are shelf-stable, you can find them online.
