The other niggle is that the fry pan has completely lost its non-stick ability, which results in a lot more water required to clean it after eggs or hash browns in the morning. If I were shopping for a new set Iíd look for something with a more bulletproof nonstick finish, if such exists. Maybe time to start packing a well seasoned cast iron skillet.
The non-stick coating on the Ausker pans is a Swiss made, ceramic impregnated coating that is really tough. You can see ours in person at the rally. 🙂

We have had a Magma set for 6 years now, and other than some staining on the exterior from heat, and a bit of heat wear on one handle, they are still working great with all the non-stick coating wiring fine. We love the even cooking the thick bases provide. Would buy them again in a heartbeat.

When I googled cookware I came up with this site. Just a starting point, I have no affiliation and can't/won't vouch for the testing methods.

Our Magma set is just stainless steel, not non-stick and clean up quickly. Our handles are still perfect.

Enjoy,

Perry

This blog is written by "A mom of six with a background in journalism" and is unscientific propaganda. Burning teflon and killing birds (which can happen) in no way suggests there is any health issue from cooking in non-stick cookware.

I closed the blog as soon as I spotted the first Teflon scare mongering.

I really like the Magma pots. We have the non-coated induction version. The only drawback is that these are very heavy stainless steel. As a consequence Iím thinking of getting rid of some of the smaller pot sizes that we donít use often. I also found that the optional carrying bag is helpful in taking out the pots when stored in the lower cabinet of our 17b since you can grab the bag handle with one hand and brace yourself with the other. Without the bag you need to awkwardly grab both handles or do some other awkward balancing.
There is also this T-Fal Ingenio nesting set which is made of thick aluminum and a non-stick coating. The weight is good, and the pots/pans nest nicely, but they don't close together at the top nicely like the Magma ones. They arenít technically sold in North America, but the magic of Amazon can bring them here if you want them enough:

And if you really like choices, there is also this Neoflam one. I havenít tried it.

We purchased the Stansport set and very happy with it, cost about 1/2 the price of the Magna set.

Enjoy the journey.

I have the stainless/induction (not non-stick) pots of the T-Fal Ingenio series; their material would be like the Magma set. I got them to use while travelling (so the stackable design with removable handle), and using an induction cooker. They are well-made, the removable handle works well (although it clamps onto the inside surface so that end of the handle needs washing), they come with both cooking lids and storage lids, and I like them. I bought them from Canadian Tire, but they don't appear to carry them any more, although the two-frying-pan set might be available to order. T-Fal Canada doesn't list either the pot or the non-stick pans any more among their lines of pots and pans, although there are still buried pages for the fry pan set and 11-piece pot set.
