The only negative with the Magma pots is the handle on the lids, they are metal and transfer the heat good, necessitating the use of a pot holder at times. I wish they were of the same material the handles are, which insulate against heating up really good.
How about something like these: Cool Touch Lid Handles

The Magma lid handles are knobs that use a single screw to hold them on, so unfortunately these would not work. I did just send of a request to Magma.

Let's hope they have a good solution. Hot handles are NOT fun.

We bought Stansport from Amazon and it has thick bottoms for only $48. Very happy with it.

Wow. They look amazingly similar to the Magma and Galleyware. Thanks.

We had a set of MSR nesting cookware and Norma hated the detachable handles. She was never confident enough with them so we replaced it with regular Calphalon pans (the MSR set stayed under one of the dinette benches in our 17). Storage really wasn't an issue for us.
The handles on the Magma set look secure.

Paul, I use an MSR set for canoeing and backpacking, and they are fantastic for that. With the handle grip, though not too bad, one does have to be careful. The Magma ones are very solid.

Our set is the Magma 7 piece, but I was reminded it came from Camping World, not REI. That Stansport set is significantly less than what I paid for the Magma...I'll have to compare them sometime.

Thanks, just saved me $20 compared to Amazon.

Our nesting cookware was purchased originally for canoe camping and looks very similar to this:


The handles seem to work quite well and are very secure. Our kit was purchased from here Med Hard Anodized Cookset - Campers Village and was decently priced. Long term, we will likely purchase a better set such as the Magma pots that Jim got.
