Portable Pots

Magma Teflon cookware

This nine-piece, stainless steel-and-Teflon cookware set from Magma reminds me of those Russian nesting dolls I loved growing up, only these stackables are practical. The set features three saucepans (plus a lid that fits all three), one stock pot, two removable handles, and a bungee cord. Each piece of cookware is Teflon-coated and features a flat, stainless steel bottom for even heat distribution. When you're ready to put them away, just stack 'em up. They fit neatly and easily together and take up less than 1/2 cubic foot of space.

Book Smarts

The Yachting Gourmet

Anyone who's cooked at sea knows a traditional cookbook just doesn't cut it. You need a book written by someone who knows what you're up against: small spaces, limited ingredients, and a workspace that moves. The Yachting Gourmet ($32.95) is such a book, full of delicious, easy-to-make recipes, from very berry soup to spicy shrimp with coconut sauce. And for $250, you can customize yours with a photograph or drawing of your vessel on the cover.

Stick It

Nonslip Super Line-It Liner

Cooking can become a real chore when you have to contend with pots, pans, and dishes that won't sit still. Fortunately, Leggett and Platt cooked up the Nonslip Super Line-It Liner, which makes sliding supplies a thing of the past. This durable, translucent liner can be cut to fit any size or shape. It's also long-lasting: Leggett and Platt guarantees the Super Line-It Liner will prevent slippage for ten years. The liners are available through West Marine and cost less than $10 per roll.

Skip the stove—with an electric skillet and a spatula, you can whip up a veritable feast in minutes. The Cuisinart Electric Skillet ($100) has a 12"x15" cooking surface and is easily stowed. Made of durable, brushed stainless steel, it comes with a tempered-glass lid and nonstick finish that makes cleanup a breeze.
