Is this set any good?
Construction and quality
This 18/10 mirror polished stainless steel set is made of is 100-percent marine-grade (non-magnetic) stainless steel, ensuring that it won’t corrode in a marine environment. In addition, all the pans have triple-clad bottoms-(aluminum sandwiched between stainless steel). The handles are not stainless steel and are designed to be removable so that the pots and pans can nestle into each other. Users have commented on how sturdy the handles are despite being removable.
The set carries a one-year manufacturer’s warranty
This set is designed to be used on boats and RV’s. With the even heat distribution it can be used on gas electric or ceramic cooktops. This cookware set is not intended for use with induction cooktops, which require magnetic cookware. Magna has an induction version of the 10 piece gourmet nesting set available. All the cookware is oven safe and dishwasher friendly.
The variety of pan sizes makes it easy to cook for two to six persons.
The set is designed to be easy to store thanks to the removable handles and bungy cord to keep the set in place.
A suggestion is when using a gas burner, to remove the handle to prevent it from getting hot.
Cleaning and maintenance
This cookware is easy to clean, just use warm water and soap. The stainless steel does not scratch easy and if necessary is dishwasher safe.
Value for money
This set is perhaps a bit more than some people might want to pay for a set that is probably only going to be used on occasion, but the quality of this set warrants the price. It will last a long time while also giving you great cooking pleasure!
One thing that is perhaps a negative is the the set only has 2 handles included, but more handles can be ordered from Magma on their website. The 10th-piece of this set is the bungee cord that holds the lid down when the set is fully nested.
