magma cookware

Wholesale marine has good prices on the cookware. Seems like a lot of people use and like it. Anyone have an opinion on getting non-stick over stainless steel. I never had a non-stick that didn't peel over time. I thought the non-stick cermica might make clean up that much easier. Just trying to pass the winter away supplying my somewhat new 21.

Stainless is very easy to clean up . It also lasts and is a more healthy to cook with . I also use stainless at home . I do keep some cast iron though at home . Just can't seem to get rid of my favorite cast iron griddle and frying pan . In the trailer just a few pieces of stainless .A griddle , 2 pots , frying pan , kettle . Pat

We have the SS and like it, it's better then what we have at home. We got the bigger set and should have gotten the smaller one. When all stacked together it's pretty awkward to maneuver in and out of the cabinet due to it's weight. Will be shrinking it down some before the next trip.

Nothing unhealthy about non-stick cookware. Hasn't been an issue for a couple decades, but it will only remain non-stick for a couple years, depending on care.
I have 10 and 12 inch fry-pans in the trailer. I store them individually in reusable grocery bags to prevent rubbing while traveling.

Here is America's Test Kitchen report on non-stick cookware: https://www.americastestkitchen.com/...stick-skillets

I was wondering earlier about this cookware and was going to post about it, but you beat me to it.

I went to their website and I like the set finished in blue the best. One of my favorite colors!

I've been using non-stick for years and yeah, eventually you have to replace them, but I'll do that over cleaning a non non-stick finish any day of the year/month/day/week/hour. Yuck!

Would this be the 7 piece set instead of the 10 piece? I don't see myself needing all the pieces in the 10 piece set and I was wondering about storage.

Yes, we got the 10 and added a strainer to the set so it ended up 11. Like I said, it'll be lighter soon. Have yet to need them all. We do carry a couple non stick fry pans too.

I think I'll stick with the stainless set, I use a quality set at home and it's not that hard to clean when used properly. That is a great price.

Glen besides not lasting , most keep using when the surface is no longer good , that is the unhealthy part . You can buy once with stainless and never have to buy again .I had in my home some pieces my Mother gave me from the 30 's which went to the kids . Stainless is clean like glass . Surface doesn't degrade on stainless and cleans up well . Pat

Stainless, like cast iron, last a long time and clean just as easy as non stick, if done properly.
