How To Properly Use Your CampMaid Tools

Proper Uses for Your CampMaid Tools:

1. CampMaid Lid Holder: 
  • Position the legs evenly and directly over the center of your Dutch Oven lid and push directly down. It's best to have your Dutch Oven placed on the ground or low cooking surface so you can push straight down to hook the lid.
  • After you remove the lid, you can set it on the ground ( it will hold it above the ground ) or you can place it on a table then you can place your Dutch Oven pot on top of the CampMaid Lid Lifter and use it as a serving stand. The charcoals on the top of the lid are keeping your food warm from below at a safe distance from the CampMaid handle spring.
  • You can also use the hook on the leg of the Lid Holder to lift the Dutch Oven out of the fire by hooking the handle of your Dutch Oven and lifting the entire pot.
  • Your CampMaid Lid Holder fits all sizes and manufacturers and also folds down by the numbers to store in a 12” Dutch oven or larger


2. CampMaid Charcoal Holder & Wood Holder Heat Source
  • First, pull out the Charcoal Holder red handles to make them longer and easier to grip/squeeze and keeping your hands at a safe distance from the heat source.

  •  Heat Source: Place charcoals or wood in the CampMaid Charcoal Holder and place it directly under your Dutch Oven on the ground as a direct heat source

  • Griddle: Use your CampMaid Lid Holder to remove the Dutch Oven lid so it is secured on your Lid Holder, then flip it upside-down to create a skillet. Once the CampMaid Lid Lifter is flipped upside-down with the spring handle on the bottom, attach your CampMaid Charcoal Holder Heat Source to the stand by clamping around the center clip, directly below your lid skillet.

  •  Adjust the heat level by moving your CampMaid Charcoal Holder up and down, depending on how hot you want to make your skillet.

  •  Tip: to ensure a firm grip on the Lid Holder/Oven Lid, straighten out the shaft hook and shift legs accordingly to get a firm hold

  • Pizza Oven:Create a pizza oven by attaching your lid, flip it upside-down, add the charcoal holder, then place the dutch oven upside down on top of the lid!


3. CampMaid Flip Grill: 
  • Grill: Hold your CampMaid Lid Lifter in one hand, and your Flip Grill in the other hand, and line up with Lid Lifter with the #2 leg with the #2 tab on the Flip Grill using the tabs to secure the feet. Then press the spring handle down to attach and hook onto the hook in the center of the Flip Grill.

  • Flip the grill facing up, (Lid Lifter upside down), and attach the CampMaid Charcoal Holder directly below the grill to add your heat source. Adjust the heat level by moving your CampMaid Charcoal Holder up and down, depending on how hot you want to make your grill.

  • SMOKER: Create a portable smoker by adding wood chips on top of your charcoal, then place your dutch oven upside down on top of your grill. You can also substitute the oven for a lightweight dutch oven liner for the same effect! *Hint - use grape seed oil to baste your meats/fish for that extra smokey flavor that doesn't taint the taste of your food!


4. CampMaid Kickstand:
  • Use the CampMaid Kickstand as a quick easy way to remove the lid and contain waste by dumping coals directly into a proper disposal
  • Prop up the CampMaid Kickstand with the lid attached to keep it off the ground or counter top while it cools down


5. Charcoal Chimney

  • Unfold the panels and flip the grill down to snap in place. On the handle, push the button to flip the orange handle outward. To store, push the button and fold the handle to the right so it lays flat, flip the grill up so it is flat against the panel, then fold the side panels inward twice to lay flat. *For best use, spray or rub cooking oil (or olive oil) on the 4 edges where the joints fold.
