Smile Cooking Pots

I've read many times how storage of cooking pots, frying pans, ect has been a challenge and I thought I'd share this product. .

It's fine for 2, but maybe too small for more than that. I bought my current set in '96(backpacking) and I've been using them daily for almost 2 yrs. They store great, they clean easily and their great quailty.

I use a set of high quality cookware (Circulon) in the trailer that is better than what we use at home. I have used this set for over 10 years now in 4 different trailers. I chose the high quality stuff because it is easy to clean in the confines of the trailer and spreads the gas heat evenly. I use circles of rubber non-skid between the pieces when on the road, but the grooved surface protects most of the surface against damage to the non-stick.

Obviously you have a big trailer! If we had all that we wouldn't have room for us

We have a set of aluminum nesting pans that have a small frying pan, large pot and small pot, all with fold up handles. They store in a stuff sack, which is nice. I also grab my favorite non-stick grill pan from the house to take on trips. I might look into that non-stick set John mentioned. I think non-stick helps us conserve water quite a bit, which is nice when dry camping.

Ditto on at least one Pyrex casserole dish; a necessity for rallys with pot luck dinners. I simply make use of the frying pan as a grill.

I also keep a Pyrex 3-cup measuring cup for microwaving water as well as a large plastic measuring cup for mixing pancakes, etc.. The Pyrex cup neatly nests inside the plastic cup when on the road so that it doesn't have to be padded.

I often carry a couple of throwaway aluminum casserole pans along for times that I'm not sure of retrieving my pan. Example is an event where I will be playing the banjo immediately after dinner; I can just forget about the pan in that case.

The 25 Classic actually has less pot'n pan space than any of my previous trailers except the original popup. Even my 19' Scamp 5th-wheel had more space than I have now.

The best thing we purchased from Camping World was the stainless steel nesting pots and pans set. No need for a colander with the perforated lids, which pretty much eliminate boil-overs too. The plastic lids are great for storing stuff in the frig, and the pots function as mixing bowls. The clamp-on handles are VERY robust.

These sit in a cast-iron skillet which sits on a perforated pizza pan, which sits on an airbake cookie sheet on the oven rack. Below that is a Pampered Chef pizza stone. Down in the broiler area is a pie pan, two cake pans, and a pie crust saver. There's still room in the oven for more cookware. I won't be surprised if we wind up with a non-stick coated aluminum griddle in there too, and Pyrex casserole and meat loaf pans in the cabinets.

We're able to fit three of these cutlery trays stacked in the top kitchen drawer. We managed to get service for 8 in the top one, and the middle one holds the three handles from the pots and pans set.

The knife safe on the inside of a cabinet door keeps the knives from getting dinged up, and handy, yet out of the way so they can't fall and hurt the cats.

For more counterspace, we usually keep the Corian cover on the right sink, over a stainless dish drainer sitting on a sink mat. This allows us to save water by rinsing everything at once.

Much of the cooking will take place outdoors with the Coleman Road Trip grill, where in addition to the grill inserts, we have a griddle and stove grate. One trick I learned from one of the Winnebago crowd was to spray the water tray with Pam, rather than use water in it.

WOW! I didn't notice until I checked my links posted above that Camping World has the pots and pans set on sale for $62.99 ! We got ours on sale, but not at THAT price!

I hate to drag an older thread up to the top, but I feel like it needs to be updated for those who come across it when searching.

Camping World no longer carries the nesting pots and pans set. Hohne found them at Practical Sailing Solutions and reported a good buying experience with that company.

I haven't seen one of those in 30 years, are they still available?
I would be interested in getting a few of them.

Because the galley storage space is so limited in the 25 Classic, I bought a set of the nesting pots & pans when CW had them on sale; my college-age granddaughter was the recipient of my handled pots & pans. At $63 by mail, the set was a steal; the local CW had them on the shelves for over $90. The quality is great. Even better, I received the $1 shipping on the order.
