Uh-oh. What if the handle on a 10-inch fry pan is too long? HMM.

Can also build in a shelf in there for more pots.
What cabinet is that in the photo? It looks like one just off the floor, not one we have.

There is a minor discolouring to the lid, but not the pots at all. No idea on the 17, but I will go with what Leon says. He is right that we seem to have one pot more than we need for cooking, but we have learned to used them for other things, like mixing and serving, eliminating other bowls.

Jim yes, that cabinet is the one below my 4.3 fridge, just off the floor. I got down there to inspect and guess what, I see the side walls in there do not rise to a ceiling. You can see over the side and back wall panels. This means if I add a rack-type shelf 3 inches down from the top of the front opening a 10 inch fry pan can sit in there and extend longer than the 16 inches of wall width. The handle will fit over the side wall.

I'm on it!

rbryan4:

We just purchased, what I think, is a 7 piece nesting set of Magma pots. They are very nice and very heavy, not for backpacking. I can only hope that with sufficient use they'll develop a nice patina.

Myron:

You could alternately cut the handle on the pan shorter, and put an inch or two of rigid foam up there as refrigerator insulation.

I considered that. Not to worry. Job is done. Now must find a cheapo 10 inch frying pan whose handle will extend over the right interior wall like this one does.

And let the frying begin.
