BTW - For those of you wanting Aluminum/Teflon (T-Fal, etc.) sets, the GSI Bugaboo Medium set (as seen at the REI website linked above (but $10+/- less), & some nesting 10" & 8" fry pans - are also available at GoWesty.

GSI Bugaboo Medium Anodized Nesting Cookset in Blue:
http://www.gowesty.com/product-details.php?v=&id=4405

Medium-sized 10" non-stick fry pan w/ folding handle 2 layer Teflon:
http://www.gowesty.com/product-details.php?v=&id=4165

Small-sized 8" non-stick fry pan w/ folding handle 2 layer Teflon:
http://www.gowesty.com/product-details.php?v=&id=4164

They're pretty good quality & compact, & will be our backup plan, if I cannot find anything similar in aluminum/ceramic.

REI.com is a good place to look at them .
Mine will go from pack to trailer when the time comes.
When Backpacking the Bruce TRail in Ontario, I used mostly a large Sierra cup, until I spilled a meal on a rocky beach one time.
Shortly afterwards When on the Long Trail in Vermont, I found a "RockyCup" from Boy Scouts of America. It was perfect.
In a weak moment I gave it to a certain 'elfin' lady backpacker and have regretted it since.
Had to make my iown.
I still use it in the AS on occasion.

Just hope they don't conduct heat and melt from the inside....
The handles on ours did not just melt, they caught on fire, and it had nothing to do with flames over the side if the pan. However - so what if it did?? There were flames in my Airstream, coming from the handle of the Magma pan. We no longer use the handles- until they are redesigned we consider them life-threatening.

Has this problem been addressed by the manufacturer? Was thinking of ordering?

What about teflon vs aluminum? Any thoughts from users?

Thanks

Dave

I have had the Magma-style pans for 20 years of full-time use and they still look and work great. I bought mine for close to $400 in 1996 from Welcome Aboard, a marine supply company. I only had Teflon in the skillet and when it wore off they replaced it for free with a non-Teflon version. I purchased a compatible sauté pan and colander from Magma about two years ago and they have worked well. They are compatible with my 20 year old handles. I have never had any problems whatsoever with those handles but they do look slightly different from the Magma handles. Having removable handles is not just great for storage but it allows you to use all the pans in the oven to braise or bake with. I also use as the occasional mixing bowl. Great versatility.

Wow, crazy about the handles. We've had no problems. Wonder if there was a bad batch once?

Great thread guys, I was just looking up some cookware for my new AS.

Anyone ever use Lodge brand cast iron cookware? One thing I like is that they essentially become non-stick and will last a lifetime (although heavy). This stainless nesting cookware looks sweet but I'm sure food sticking is a large problem. I don't do Teflon.

If interested one can go to defender.com a boating supply outfit and they have Magma and other nesting pots and pans and usually at discounted prices.

Expensive!

I love the idea of removable handles on stainless steel cookware. Unfortunately, these "Cristel's" are way out of our price range. I give them a dollar sign rank of:
$$$$$$$. Thank you for sharing!

The pans have been great, and the handles are sturdy.

If there is a downside to these pans, it is the price. $$$. Pound for pound I think they cost more than the Airstream!

I see Magna has a line of ceramic coated sets. We are using my Mom's 20 year old stainless steel pots and pans but they would be difficult to carry in our Airstream. Wondering if the ceramic coated will wear out like Teflon pans.

We've only been using ours for 2 years and the ceramic has been perfect so far.

Randy, no offense taken. I was prepared for "expensive", but when we bought them in December the price it was 2x my wildest imagining. Somehow it still ended up in my shopping basket. There are lots of things these days that cost more than I think they "should". Sheets for the Airstream at JC - but sheets only cost $20 at K-Mart in 1987, why should they be so much more expensive today? Ah, the pleasures of getting older.

But the pans I am happy with the quality and functionality, and cost less than a set of tires for the truck. With logic like that, I end up with a lot of expensive toys. If they are for the Airstream, I'm happy.

Please don't take that wrong, it's just even with your warning, that was quite the sticker shock when I looked them up on Amazon thinking maybe a new set for the wife to enjoy (Maybe NOT)

We bought the 7-piece stainless set, then added a Magma non-stick omelette pan (which nests in the stack) and a 2nd handle. I can't remember, but price-wise that probably put us at the 10-piece set, but it gave us just the pieces we needed. We also carry a 10-inch Lodge cast-iron skillet.
