High quality, nesting pots and pans set

I wanted to pass on one of our best purchases for our trailer. I bought a very nice, high quality nesting pot and pan set via Kickstarter over a year ago. But I wanted to let the company get established and live with them for a year to test their durability before recommending them to others. (Note: I have no skin in the game. I'm just passing on a tip that others may find useful.)


The frying pans have removable handles and the pots all nest into each other so it was really easy to fit them into our basket drawer under the sink in our 19'. They have a very durable non-stick coating, the glass lids have build in strainers and the lid handles will double as a spoon rest. After a year of use they look as new as when we first bought them with no nicks or scratches etc. The non-stick coating is still intact and shows no sign of wear. I have been pleasantly surprised at how well they have held up.

Here is a link to their web site: https://ausker.com

Cheers!

We bought these a few years ago and are very pleased with them.

Nice to know about other options - thanks.


Question for ya on straining through the lid. I have a pot that does that from Analon/Circulon. Nice idea that was really a PITA as the steam would come back at your hand that was holding the lid in place. Not too thrilling, to say the least. Does this lid do that?



I've been using the Magma set in blue and am quite happy with them.

We've had the identical set for the past 3-4 years and Terry would never give them up. Hiked today in the Chiricahua Mountains by Portal, AZ and then enjoyed beef stroganoff tonight, cooked in the Magma cookware, in the camper, while it's raining outside. Life is good!

Enjoy,

Perry

I bought the 10 piece Magma set last summer for the Big Trip, but they're the Induction set. Heavy suckers! But I thought some day I might have an induction cook top in Ten Forward and as the set was expensive I wanted to make certain they'd work for that as well.

Otherwise, I might really consider the set Arnie & Paula posted above.

It looks like a great set. I wish they had a smaller set with just a medium pot and a frying pan and a common lid, though. Although if I could use the others at home it might still be a great idea- folding handles out of the way would sure make storage even at home a lot easier.

Good choices, I recently have been looking at cookware too. I will have to add the two above to my short list of these, available in three sizes.

Several of the reviews on the Magma set say if used on propane stoves the handles melt. Anyone having those issues?

I've been using the Magma set in blue and am quite happy with them.
When straining I use two pot holders to hold the side handles and the lids at the same time. Since my hands are off to the sides, they are out of the way of the steam.

Also,The lids have two different sized straining holes on opposite sides which is nice.

We used a Magma set full time in our 17B for a year, and intermittently for the couple of years since then in our 19. While we are generally happy with their performance, I can confirm that the handles do suffer from some melting distortion on the propane cooktop. 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 I’d look for something with a more bulletproof nonstick finish, if such exists. Maybe time to start packing a well seasoned cast iron skillet.
