My daughter bought me a set of Grannyware (enamel plated metal) from a thrift store when she was 7. It's classic camp table ware, can go on the grill or campfire, and is the main reason we have never bought a microwave

I just ordered a set of green enameled stainless dinnerware by CGI. It looks great from the photos. When it arrives, I'll let you know! Seemed like the best of all worlds.

I also realize I almost never use my sink covers, thanks to another member's suggestion, I now I stow them UNDER the kitchen drawer on the floor. Once every three months or so I MIGHT have to pull them out and use them.
I love TA-A moments! Thanks for sharing.

What is CGI? I don't normally like stainless for dinnerware but with so many users it might just be worth looking into.

Considering that this will be our "home", I just can't stomach eating off something other than glass long-term, so we're taking the chance and bringing along glass dishware (well-packed when we're on the move). We got a super cheap set at IKEA, so we won't be too devastated if we soon find out it's a naive decision. We're taking along four of the six bowls, plates and salad plates, and leaving the extras with friends, so we have back-ups.

For pots and pans, we're just taking along our favorites from home — a couple pots and a couple pans. The space-saving comes in the form of the lids. We got a couple accordian-collapsing silicon bowls (that can serve double duty as mixing bowls and storage containers. They have silicon lids that can withstand high heat, and because they create a suction, they'll fit any size pan.

I splurged on a set of nesting silicone bowls, which mix, store in the frig and microwave nicely.

Be careful with the collapsing bowls, I was given one and found they can collapse when you don't want them to. Hard to stir and mix something without putting any pressure on the sides.

Oh, good to be aware of Maggie! I actually only got them because of the lids (I saw some standalone silicone lids at a fancy cooking store long ago, but they were discontinued and the only good options I could find came with these bowls.) The bowls seemed handy too— I've got a drawer-full over silicone items now (measuring cup, bowls, etc, etc) that would have taken up a cabinet's-worth of space at home with "standard" glass/metal items.

I find the Correll to stack nice and tight, and it's durable. Paul Revere classic for pots and pans. The new versions of this coppered bottomed classic are thin-walled (to cut costs) but also makes them light weight. Lodge cast iron in various shapes and sizes. Polycarbonate tumblers and wine glasses.

A couple of Pyrex casseroles and bowls for the oven. And a couple of stainless steel mixing bowls bought at a restaurant supply. (cheaper and properly shaped)

Target has some nice "natural" utensils, steak knives, etc. with wood handles and I also have a couple bamboo salad bowls.

Along with the copper bottom pots, the wooden handles match the styling of my '72 very nicely.

Corelle

We are settled in TX for a month after just picking up our new AS from Colonial. I finally broke down and bought Corelle Pro in "Harmony" print. Love it already!

We have the square Corelle in 4 Dots pattern.....now discontinued, I think but the square shape fits nicely in the Airstream.

Tying them down

In my determination to use real glass dishware (I just can't find a Correlle pattern that fits my style), I devised a tie-down system using cabinet pulls as brackets and velcro. With some non-slip padding between each dish and a nice tight pull, the dishes don't shift an inch. Disclaimer: it hasn't yet been road tested, but I have high hopes!
