Anyone have a strong recommendation on their favorite cookset for two?

 

It's nice to be able to drag along whatever in the camper but also thinking some sort of dedicated nesting set might be a little easier for storage, etc..  This would be just for the camper, not backpacking.

 

Thanks

We use a MSR stainless set of nesting pots, plus a Sig stainless, 10” folding skillet. It’s either on the boat or in the Bobcat at all times.

I also have a MSR nesting set, from 25 years ago.  It's stainless.

However, I use cast iron more often.  It doesn't nest, but a small skillet and small dutch oven work best for most things.

I also use the MSR nesting pots I bought 25 years ago. Very versatile. Lids can be used as plates. We use the big pot as a salad bowl and they are are VERY durable and versatile. Add a frying pan and you are good to go. I tried the newer stuff but I am never impressed. Stainless you can clean with sand or rocks or steel wool ...

I just purchased this 7 pce, non stick set from Magna:

I haven't had a chance to use it yet, but the quality seems to be even better than I expected. Very heavy bases for even heat distribution. I'm also going to modify the handle on this 10" Griddle 21-0302800060000-1.jpgand it should fit in the bottom of the case:

A 10" Lodge skillet and 4 quart camp Dutch oven. All you need to fry, bake, saute, braise, simmer, roast, poach, stew. Cast iron, the original nonstick pan.

Or, the Lodge 5 qt. double oven is hard to beat.
