Hi
It seems to have been a year or two since there has been things written on the square smartspace pots.
I was wondering how the people that have them are finding out how the are wearing.
Is the teflon coating still intact ? Are they good to cook with ?
The best price I have so far is $169.

Others I have looked at are the Magma Nestable 7 piece stainless steel set $179.

The Tefal Cocoon and the Tefal Ingenio both over $200.

I'll second what Maggsie said plus no signs of ware and damm easy to clean and being square in shape they take up less storage space than round pots.

I see the Magma has attached handles so take up huge amounts of storage space and are not teflon coated. And the Tefals are round and not teflon coated.

The Magma do have a detachable handle but looking at them on youtube seem awkward to detach.

Ours have been well used with no sign of wear and we love cooking with them. They are very good quality and should last a long time as long as you use the supplied protector mat when stacking them inside each other. We also bought the frying pan which gave us an additional handle. We paid $195 for ours so $169 is a great price. Can highly recommend them, Regards Dave

I looked closely at them but I thought their small size let them down a bit.
Also, all the teflon coated cookware we've ever used eventually degrade so I went another direction.
I bought a set of round nesting stainless steel cookware made by Japanese camping company SnowPeak and sold here by Drifta in NSW.
SnowPeak cookware
Nicely made and all packs away but the handle isn't quite as user friendly as the SmartSpace one as it screws in but I'm happy with my choice.
Lots of other really nice SnowPeak accessories on the Drifta site as well, in fact I've bought quite a bit of it.
Regards Andrew.

We have a set of the Magma stainless steel stuff (purchased from Whitworths) because we've never had any luck with the non-stick coatings - they always degrade in the camping/corrugation/male cook environment. Also I'm not restricted to plastic cookware.
The handles of the Magma also clip into the side and not over the edge, so don't interfere with the lids. I also don't like glass lids when camping.

Hi everyone, I too am looking at purchasing the SmartSpace pots. When you use them in the oven can you put the lid in there as well, am worried about the handle attached to the lid?

Thanks, Gordonk
