The only pan that I want as non-stick is a frying pan, and the Magma set doesn't include a good one anyway. So I keep a cast iron pan on the boat.

Re: New Magma ceramic coated nested cookware

How does ceramic coated cookware hold up? I found that stacking will scratch coated cookware, especially on a boat with constant movement. Would be nice to find non-stick that doesn't scratch as easily and remains non-stick. Any long term experience with ceramic coated?

As far as stacking scratching, just stack towels between the pans, which will alternatively also be a storage medium for the towels

The ceramic coated cookware stands up well, is a lot tougher finish than teflon. Nowhere near as non stick as teflon though.

Re: New Magma ceramic coated nested cookware

As I say, our teflon Magma stacking set has held up just fine over seven years of seasonal (but heavy) use. As Multihullgirl says, just insert a small cloth between the pots when storing. Anything small, soft and insulating. Those blue disposable oil paper towels work get.

Just take a small bit of effort to keep the teflon in fine shape.

Re: New Magma ceramic coated nested cookware

I have the Magma 7 piece stacking set in stainless as well. As someone said above, I think they are an amazing bargain compared to department store "better" cookware. You get a pretty robust set of pots for the price. I've never felt the need for non-stick, but we don't fry much on the boat.

Re: New Magma ceramic coated nested cookware

We got our Magma non-stick set in either 2009 or 2010 and it's held up very well. More importantly these pans cook well, with heavy copper clad bottoms for even heating.

The lids are contoured to prevent the nested pans from rubbing, and I secure them with a bungee (don't remember if it was included). Our set gets used most weekends from April through October. Best of all the whole nested set fits nicely in the oven so it frees up cabinet space.

We added a stainless steel chef's pan for steaks and chicken when you want that "sear".
