Re: Nesting cookware review

I use a similar technique, every pot and pan fits inside the other, then it's all held in place with a bungee cord. Same holds true for the extra bottles of booze. strapped down and cushioned so if the boat took a knock down the booze, food, pots and pans, etc... would be safely secured. The only items that are not secured are the pillows and blankets.

Good post,

Gary

Re: Nesting cookware review

I think efficiency is more important than nesting now. Things have changed since "they" came out with these. They'll save on a lot of propane, alcohol, etc.

New cooking pot 40% more efficient ("Jet engineer designs...")

Brad

Re: Nesting cookware review

I just dont see why someone would want these types of cookware unless space was very limited. A cast iron skillet, some SS pots, and a cast iron Dutch Oven and youre all set

To each their own though

It is.

They are.

Wooden cutting boards take up the rest of the space.

I agree. I'm using the SS Farberware set I bought out of college, a Swiss Diamond saute, a Circulon omelet pan, and Kuhn Rikon PC.

I have yet to find a nesting set that have sturdy enough handles to really cook in.

Re: Nesting cookware review

I'm very impressed with the Cuisinart nesting set I have. They are of the same quality as the Cuisinart pans I have at home, very similarly made. (in fact they're rather heavy) The only real difference is the removable handle(s) that has a quick-pin trigger release which slides on rails that are welded to the pots. My set is not non-stick.

I think this is the same:



I have quit carrying the big boiler, because I have a pressure-cooker which will do the same work, and I find a pressure cooker invaluable.

The little boiler, with lid on, has worked as a bread 'cloche' and I've baked some fine loaves underway

For boiling up water for coffee etc I have a fairly thin-gauge, broad-bottomed stainless whistling kettle that I bought in a local Vietnamese food store. It's a helluva kettle - boils up in no time.

Re: Nesting cookware review

+ 1 for the Cuisinart. Looks like 2 hulls or 1, we like the same cookware.

Re: Nesting cookware review

Hey BL, good find. I love checking out the camping stores for boat buys. But I'm actually going to step up for Magma here. We got our non-stick Magma set maybe five years ago. I think we got a discount at the Annapolis show from Defender but I'm not even sure anymore.

I think we paid around $150; they've gotten a LOT of use and still cook and look good. I was concerned about the handles, but no issues there. We did add an All Clad pan for pan searing dishes and steaks but I'd probably do that with any set. It all bundles up and fits in the smallish galley on our 30.

I'm expecting to get a lot more years out of the Magma set so I'd say they were definitely money well spent.

I think it's worth spending a little more for stuff you use every day.

Re: Nesting cookware review

Ours is the Cuisinart. OK so storage for us is not a big issue but I confess we rarely use it. Maybe MHG has the right idea as we also have a pressure cooker so the big boiler is excess to requirements. Without it maybe we would use the other stuff more.
