Like most, we've accumulated the various assortment of orphan pots and pans over the years.

When we're ready to replace an entire set, I would buy the same quality that I would buy for my house. It would likely be stainless steel. Although, I like cast iron.....too heavy.

A good set will last a lifetime.

Thanks everyone. I saw Costco sells a set of calphalon anodized like I already use for a reasonable price. I will probably go with them.

I have Melamine dinnerware, a 10 qt cast iron Dutch oven with the feet whose lid is also a frying pan for outdoor cooking. Nuwave burner and Magma induction cookware. Small cast iron frying pan works for everything but microwave. A couple of pieces of tinware including a broiler pan that fit the gas oven. Cheap silverware knives from wallyworld. Some collapsable silicone collanders, salad spinner and bowls. Silicone and steel cooking utensils. Also compact 5 qt crockpot.

Cast iron is only rinsed off if it's properly seasoned so not hard to clean. A Doby pad and water is all I've ever used on the cast iron. Magma cookware is nesting type so whole set 1 cubic foot in space removable handles and most pots in the set are multipurpose. Have a french press unbreakable type and single coffeemaker that makes single cup at a time for coffee/tea. Have plastic tumblers and a few plastic wine glasses. Mixing bowls melamine nested type. I save to go containers from carryout to reuse for leftovers and heat things in the microwave. This covers us cooking over campfire, Nuwave (especially under the awning when pouring outside), gas stove/grill and microwave.

Everyone should at least have 1 good 10" cast iron skillet for special occasions. It's takes years getting them flavored up just right. LOL Clean up's a cinch. Invert it over the fire for a few minutes then wipe clean with a lightly oiled paper towel. Easy peasy.

Induction ready all the way. We use it indoors and out. Picked up the cookware at IKEA, which has a great selection on induction pots, as it's very common in Europe.
My DH was surprised at how awesome the induction plate is, we rarely use the gas stovetop.

Sounds like a good plan to me.
Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...

I almost feel like I should have a skirt on But that Costco/Sam's club anodized pans are well worth it! Stove top to oven to campfire I have no complaints whatsoever. Some folks mentioned about the weight, but it's really just a drop in the bucket. You don't have to carry the entire set. I think the main thing is to consider what you WILL use on a daily basis. It's really easy to get in the mind set of, "I MIGHT need this sometime".

I can highly recommend the Magma nesting cookware with the non-stick coating. Love this set; perfect for RVs! Takes up so little space; easy to clean; and useful for almost all your range cooking. I added only a larger pot, frying pan, cooking sheet and pressure cooker. Enjoy all your RV travels!

Bought a set of decent ones with metal lids on the cheap from IKEA. Come to think of it... a lot of the camping kitchen stuff came from IKEA
