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.
