Magma Nesting Cookware

We tow a mid-20'-range AS. I'm looking at nesting cookware to buy a little extra space in the kitchen. Does anyone use the Magma cookware, have an opinion, want to share? (I know, it's shocking to suggest that any of you have an opinion or might want to share it...)

We have not used the Magma cookware. For weight and space saving cookware we have gone to "Sea to Summit" cookware. It is uber light and collapses down to store. We use the heck out of it and has held up for 3+ years so far.

I still bring a few cast iron pieces as well

We use ours all the time. Have added additional lids from Ikea that are made out of a flexible material similar to cookie sheet liners only twice as thick.

I bought the whole set of Magma nesting cookware and after a few trips and a couple broken drawers, the Magma stays in the house. They’re nice but way too heavy for what I needed in the AS.

We use our Magma nesting both in the house and the FC. Great cookware.

I have, use and like the Magma nesting set. I bought a set compatible with induction cooktops (because I have a portable one.)

Mine have not damaged anything in my Flying Cloud in the 12k+ miles I've traveled with them, but I don't keep pots and pans in small drawers. I nest the set (with some felt spacers so they don't get scratched up from vibration) and keep it on the shelf under the sink. They work well, it's nice to be able to compact them by removing the handles and nice to have a decent array of pots when we're getting serious about cooking.

If it is made of real magma, it should cook anything in seconds and heat the trailer as well.

We do have a nesting set of cookware made of some fairly heavy aluminum pots and pans with removable handles. They save space, add weight. Not all of them are really all that useful for us, so we only bring some of them. There are a variety of nesting cookware sets and best to check out a variety. Amazon sells several brands including the Magma lines—Magma is very expensive compared to some others. I think we paid around $60 a dozen years ago for a decent set. Unless you are going to use a trailer a lot and for many, many years, I see little reason to buy a really expensive set. We also bring some cast iron pans because they are better for cooking though even heavier.

We have the non-stick Magma and it works great. Make sure you get the protectors that you slip in between the pots so they don't damage each other.

I store mine under the sink.

Ditto for us. Stored under the sink in our 25ft. Been using it for 5 years and would buy again. Made some separators out of non slip shelving material and so far no damage.
We have the non stick induction compatible but have not tried it with an induction yet as most of our camping is boondocking

Another positive endorsement for Magma. Weve got the stainless steel set. Its really high quality and very compact for storage under the sink. Its heavy so it sits well in the stove. Thumbs up!

Been using the Magma for 12 years now and been very pleased with their performance. We use the "daisy" liners between pans and they have traveled without damage stored in the oven. Mostly used for quick breakfast meals as we do a lot of dutch oven cooking for evening meals. Kind of embarrassed to say that the Magma in the trailer is nicer than the pans we use at home.

Very odd. I don't know if y'all noticed, but until Theil, everyone who spoke in favor of Magma was a Texan, and everyone against was a non-Texan. I wondered if there was some sort of conspiracy afoot until Theil triggered the groundswell of those poor souls who are non-Texans.


Further question: For two people, not planning on hosting dinner parties in our AS, is the "7 piece" set sufficient, or should I splurge on the "10 piece"?

Love ours. Great product and company that stands behind their products. We have the 10 pieces stainless, not the non stick. In hindsight, wish I would have purchased the induction compatible so we could use a portable induction burner outside.
