PTFE (such as Teflon) doesn't seem like a health risk to me, unless overheated. If hot enough, the fumes from it can be a hazard to those who are particularly susceptible... which includes pet birds.

I have a nesting (with removable handle) set of pots from T-fal, with a stainless (not non-stick) interior, and induction-compatible; they are the Ingenio series. In the similar Magma line there are both induction-compatible and not-induction-compatible versions.

I don't like non-stick coatings which are too easily damaged. My Ingenio set is just pots. For frying pans I have an induction-compatible set with a ceramic coating which is working well so far; I just have to deal with the non-removable handles for storage.

We have the Magma 7 piece induction set. Bought induction in case we wanted to but an induction "hotplate." The 7 piece set has been more than adequate for the "stove" cooking we do. We use the grill 90% of the time.

I do not carry 2 sets of cookware, one for inside cooking on the easily adjustable flame factory stove and one set for the basically on/off unadjustable outside stove. That said, the chance of overheating the "non stick" pan is prevalent with most campfire outside stoves due to their inability to cook at a low flame.

I also carry cast iron cookware,12in & 15in skillet, 6qt dutch oven for campfire and high heat outside stove(volcano grill). The magma set will be used for other things like side dishes, soup, vegies and reheating, boiling water for pasta. I Won't give up my campfire cooking.

I have no problem adjusting heat with my single burner butane stoves. It's touchy, but heat can be reduced.
I packed my cast iron for a while, but decided to reduce weight wherever possible. Replaced with T-Fal Pro Series fry pans ( rated best buy by America's Test Kitchen ) and stainless steel pots.
I don't have the discipline to use nesting pots.

We have had the Magma set with Teflon for 3 years, and use it a lot when camping. It is still in great shape, and the Teflon works great.

If you can get good use out of a microwave, that is great. We never have a cord long enough to use one most of the time though, as the nearest outlet is a long ways away.

However, paper plates are just wrong. I hate using them, especially for foods with moisture to them, like most meats and fresh cooked veggies. It takes about 5 seconds to wash a plate when doing the dishes, something I am glad to do.

Truthfully the older I get the less I like to cook. I have a pillow that says "I only have a kitchen because it came with the house."

But, back to the OPs question. If you're not interested in spending that much money, but still want reasonable quality... there are a number of Escape owners that have been happy with the Stansport brand: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1
