Appreciate thoughts on pots and pan sets that have removable handles. Are they good value compared to ones with handles. What does everyone use?

Magma stacking & nesting cookware may be what you are after.

Who sells the Magma gear? I can find their home page in the USA, and it looks good, but can't find anyone selling the nesting pots etc here in Oz

Ah ha! Thanks! I wondered why the font was in blue (or is it purple?)!

Hi Natives ,

Please keep in mind that I am traveling by myself , as my ideas are a bit odd .

I use Scanpan Professional non stick . One large frypan and one medium saucepan . If I cannot cook a meal just using these , I don't bother. For storage , I have cut high density foam ( from those roll up camping mattresses ) to fit the inside of the frypan . To this I glued a ring of the same material which seats the bottom of the saucepan and stops it moving . We can't have our non-stick surfaces rubbing , can we !

Scanpan Professional have metal handles , so I can use them on my fire as well . I usually do a paper towel wipe before washing up so that it does not foul the washing up water - the non stick really helps with this . I use paper plates too - I'm a real heathen .

I have a great vege recipee which can be cooked in the frypan . Just dice one onion , one capsicum and slice a number of zuchinis like french fries . Put a little bit of butter in the non stick frypan and simmer until it's all soft and going a little brown . Put salt and a big heap of cracked pepper and it's ready to go ! Put this pan to the side of the fire to keep warm while you grill your meat.

My other standby is a meat grill with vegies wrapped in foil and cooked in the coals . I usually cook three of the following - baby beetroot , potatoes , parsnips , carrots , onions or zuchinis . The only thing to remember is that beetroot and spuds take the longest , then carrots , then parsnips then the zuchs . Nil washing up .

Fried sliced parsnips make great fried chips .

My apologies for this post , which has nothing at all to do do with removable handles .

Cheers ,

Willie .
