We keep ours right above the sink, in two stacks - one with the two pans we use the most and then the rest in their bag. We got the nonstick version. I usually prefer the regular since the nonstick stuff eventually wears out, but as little as we’re able to travel now, they don’t get much use.

We also have the Magma nonstick version, which usually stay on the boat. To protect the coating underway, I used to separate the pots with thin microfiber cloths from Harbor Freight. Then, I  picked up sets of asterisk shaped felt pot protectors on a camping trip to Iceland at the IKEA.  A set could easily and cheaply be made from a yard of polyester felt, sized for your specific pots.

My set didn't come with the carrying case, but I  see one is available separately. For those of you who have the case, does it allow you to nest the full set without the useful but annoying bungee cord,  and still zip the case? It would be very nice to be able to use the pans without fighting the cord each time. I often use these twice a day on the boat, but they have to be nested to fit in the cabinet behind my stove.

Also, I see a wok/omelet pan available on amazon, that supposedly nests with the rest of the set. My deep wok skillet is one of my favorite skillets at home. The magma version looks like it's not very deep, but at least it could supplement the single saute pan included in the set when cooking breakfast. Anyone have this skillet?

The answer to your first question is yes, you can store them without the bungee.  We also use the felt pads between the pots to keep them from scratching.  It's still a pain to get the pans out, since you have to pull the whole bag down, so I don't know if it's easier or not than the bungee.  

We have both the wok and the pasta strainer; and if I'm not mistaken, I'm pretty sure that we can get the whole kit into the bag.  It's a bit more of a puzzle, and I think one of the pieces goes in upside down or something.  We keep the wok and the low saute pan in a separate stack, though, since we use those two all the time.  The wok we pretty much just use for eggs in the morning - I don't know why, just that two eggs seem to sit nicely in the bottom without spreading out, so they're easy to flip.  We don't use one at home, but I'd guess it's on the smaller size compared to standard woks.  It also has a flat bottom area that's maybe 3 or 4 inches diameter, which may make a difference to regular wok users. You can probably get a good idea of the size from the photo above, since it's sitting completely inside of the saute pan.

Thanks, Overland. The photo does help. With the lower sides, and small surface area of the wok skillet, I think I will let that idea go. I'll just continue with the pans I have.  But I  do think I'll order the storage bag. Seems like it would be (slightly) easier to use than the bungee and wrapping the set in a towel to keep the outer pan from denting and scratching.
