Pots !

We use a Calphalon set. I retained the perforated cardboard packing seperators. They keep my non-stick from scratching. So easy to clean and the 7 piece set fits perfectly in our small space.

Has anyone tried Dutch Oven cooking? The kind where you place a certain amount of charcoal under the pot and a certain amount on the lid?

This looks to be a good idea for making something at a rally for pot luck night.

This guy has a pretty decent website about them.

I do all the cooking when we are 'streamin, and if it can't be cooked on the charcoal grill, my cast iron skillet (which you can have when you pry my cold, dead, fingers from the handle), and one old Revere-ware pan, we don't eat it. We do have a few small Corningware bowls for heating leftovers.

The point about the galley storage for the 25' is quite correct. My '85 Sovereign is very similar in layout, and as I have it organized I have only the under sink area for pots and pans. Of course, we could use the bins under the sofa, but really I have it pared down to where it all fits under the sink.

Camping World has the pot & pans again that RoadKingMoe referred to.

They're now $71.99. We just got ours and they are VERY nice.

Since there are a lot of new faces here, I thought I'd bump this one up.

Here are the pots that are going into our unit. They're from RV Cookeare | Rapid Chef 21 pc. Nesting Cookware | Pro-Selections I got them as a "Show Special" so they were quite a bit less. The quality is really good and they nest nicely.

We have this set, too...reaslly like them, and need no other pots and pans...perfect for the AS...

2/04 I was undecided about what panware to outfit the trailer with. I was using a thin aluminum with stickproof inside coating but it wasn't cutting the mustard because it didn't distribute the heat evenly. I had purchased some nice stainless/aluminum kitchenware for my wife but I found that I could indeed stick stuff to the bottom of some of the pans. I ordered this from and have been extremely happy with it on my gas stove. Cuisinart Chef's Classic Nonstick Hard-Anodized 10-Piece Cookware Set: Home & Garden

After a few trials of this and that, trying to fit full size pots and skillets into the oven under our cooktop, I happened upon our neighbor having a garage sale with a lot of the blue corn flower corning ware in all sizes for about $20 and with the lids and a clamp on handle or two. Most pieces looked like they had never been used. They nest well with the rubber grippy stuff and for two people it works out fine as long as you adjust your recipes so there are almost or no leftovers. I assembled a 9 inch skillet, and two small stacking casseroles, all with lids, extra clamp on handles. With a can of PAM cooking spray, you can fry, bake, boil, broil, microwave, etc. Easy clean up too (if you spray first). It all stores neatly and safely in the oven until we pull it out to use it. It's great and so much is available.

All Clad.

Cooking is a pleasure that I especially enjoy when camping. Using good pots is part of the package. I used to live in Pittsburgh and the All-clad factory was nearby. Once a year they had a factory seconds sale with practically free prices. They just closed down production for a day and sell stuff on the factory floor - it was like the worlds best tag sale.

The first year I went I was dismayed to discover they only took cash but was amazed that every chef in the area was there standing in line waiting for the sale to open. Many brought their own shopping carts. I had about 20 bucks in my pocket and walked away with 3 pots.

The next year I went back with moola and a wagon. For not too much money I got a lifetime supply if great cookware.
