Amazon has them for under $50

Just received an email from Sandie's Galley & More announcing all Galleyware items ship for free if the order is over $100. May have to order my cookware now ...

Got ours earlier this month, heavier then I imagined. Reminds me of Calphalon.

Unfortunately there really is no way of cooking on a stove top without having decent weight to the pot though. I know our Magma set, though compact, is not very light at all.

Did you get the Galleyware or the Magma?

Well made set, eh?
As good, or better than, most of the stuff we have at home.

I second the suggestion for a pressure cooker. Cooks faster which uses less fuel, saves time and reduces heat in the trailer. For example, brown rice cooks in 10-12 minutes. They are much more versatile than most people realize. I've even heard of folks baking in one. When you pick a size remember you can't fill it more than two-thirds full, half full for some types of foods. My mom cooked with one every night and they are quick and easy when you are used to them.

I also have an electric skillet that I like when I have an electrical hookup. That way I'm not using propane at all. With a heavy duty outdoor extension cord it can be put on the picnic table and get the heat totally outside.

I have had no luck with backpacking type cookware. It is too thin to have good heat distribution. The heat from an RV stove is too great and I managed to ruin a non-stick one in the spot right over the burner while the food toward the edge of the pot wasn't cooking that fast. Fooled me.

Non-stick coatings are great away from hookups since they can be wiped clean with a paper towel and need very little water for final cleaning.

A good source for tips on equipment, supplies and recipes in a small moving kitchen is theboatgalley.com. Also makes me glad I don't have to cook while the kitchen is in motion.

Cookware

I know this thread is ancient but someone might refer to it in the future - like me
I have the induction compatible Magma set in stainless and it is very good on both open flame and induction units. Scrubs clean with Bar Keeper's Friend no matter what you do to it.
I added the non-stick "omelette/saute pan" which is not included in the 10 pc set. Its non-stick performance is poor. Their nesting sets are available in non-stick and I'm so glad I didn't buy that version of the complete set! Oddly enough, I've seen enthusiastic reviews for that also - go figure!
On the subject of pressure cookers, take a look at Kuhn Rikon's models. They are the Rolls Royce of pressure cookers. I use mine a lot. Saves a fair bit of fuel, as you turn the burner way down once pressure is achieved. As someone else mentioned, steam produced in the interior (trailer, boat, whatever) is minimized vs conventional methods and time is saved.
