Which pots and pans

We will be ordering a rockwood 8327ss at the end of the year. I'm ready to retire my old campfire set for some new pans for the rv. I love my calphalon but can't justify another set for the camper. What do you like on the gas burner? I'm not sure I want to deal with the maintenance of cast iron. We tend to mostly cook breakfast (eggs, gravy, etc ) and dinner is usually vacuumed packed smoked meats and sides that just require boiling water.

We bought a 12X12 electric skillet for cooking scrambled eggs, gravy and what ever can not be cooked on the grill without a lot of hassle we can boil water, warm up soup, fried cheese sandwich's and scones.

Been a handy thing.

My wife bought a set of Non Stick at Costco a year ago, they had them on sale for $135.00 cdn. incl. shipping, she loves them (as do I since it's me who does the dishes). A paper towel takes almost all the grime off and very little water takes care of the rest.
Can't use metal utensils though.
We use these non slip drawer liners to separate them in the drawer.

Might want to consider "induction ready" pans as you may want to get an induction burner like the NuWave that doesn't give off all that heat to the inside of your trailer.

The only thing we cook in the trailer is toast and coffee everything else is cooked outside.

No smells or grease stains inside.

We have a set of Magma Gourmet Nesting Cookware. It is non-stick and takes up very little space because handles come off. They are stainless steel with Ceramica non-stick coating. Check them out. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I agree 100%, when my wife cooks rice pudding she sets the temp. and walks away, literally.

I went to target and bought the cheapest set of nonstick they had. I have 1 square flat frying pan, 1 medium sized pan, 1 large pot, and a griddle. I also have 2 or 3 pieces of glass cookware. These have served me well for 4 yrs.and still look new (avg 25 nights per yr).

I thought ahead. Bought my wife a new set of stainless pots and pans for the house for her birthday and retired our old stuff to the trailer. Got new utensils as well. I have way more than I would ever bring in the trailer but I keep the extras in a bin in the attic until I feel the need to trash one.

Should add most cooking will be on the outside burners. I thought about getting new for the house but can't justify it since they are still in awesome shape. Just realized we got those for our wedding which makes them 10 years old now. Tell me more about the induction burner.
