What to Expect in Your Timeshare Kitchen


Unless you have a magical Mary Poppins bag hiding in the back of your closet, packing for vacation means limited space. Luckily, even if you plan to cook while away, there’s no need to worry about missing critical supplies in the kitchen. Standard timeshare units come stocked with all the basics, and even a few things you wouldn’t expect.

Here’s a quick list of what you’ll find in your typical timeshare kitchen:

  • Dinner settings (including plates, silverware & different types of glasses)
  • Bowls & mugs
  • Serving bowl & platter
  • Full set of cookware including skillets, saucepans and stockpot
  • Blender
  • Coffeemaker
  • Toaster
  • Basting spoon
  • Bowl scraper
  • Can opener
  • Casserole dishes
  • Colander
  • Cookie sheet
  • Corkscrew
  • Cutting board
  • Grater
  • Sharp knives
  • Ice cream scoop
  • Measuring cups & spoons
  • Mixing bowls
  • Spatulas
  • Pizza cutter
  • Roast pan
  • Tongs
  • Slotted spoon
  • Vegetable peeler

See something missing? We suggest picking up disposable bakeware from the baking aisle in the local grocery store. Or try popping down to the front desk! Many resorts have a limited supply of cooking tools such as crock pots available for use.

So when you’re putting together your vacation meal plan, don’t forget to check this list or with the resort you’re headed to in order to make sure you’re not planning any meals that require tools you won’t have, (unless you plan on packing them, of course!)
