I recently picked up two of these U.S. Navy fouled anchor demitasse cups on Etsy to use for espresso on the boat. They're durable, mess hall quality, and fit nicely in the cupboard with the regular coffee cups.
Okay so what does everyone love for cookware? In the Airstream I've still got this set of nesting cookware by Magma that I got a while back, and it's fine, but it's not particularly sexy. In the boat I have the same set, because it nests, it's space saving, and it came with the boat. :)
I added a 10' Calphalon nonstick frying pan to both the boat and the Airstream, and that's probably my most used pan of all. It was $30 bucks at Target and when it wears out, I'll just replace it. It's got a nice heavy, flat base so it heats evenly and it's great for omelettes. I use the large Magma dutch oven for soups and blanching veggies, and occasionally one of the smaller pots for reheating something.
I've also got two sizes of cast iron frying pans in the Airstream, silicone muffin pans, and a couple of good baking sheets, along with the Falcon enamelware (red/orange for the Airstream, blue for the boat).
So I'm curious what you foodie travelers use and love.
It nests with the current Magma system, and uses one of the same removable handles (which means it can go in the oven). Maybe I'll wait on the whole "color" thing and add this to my cookware collection instead!
I'd love to know what cookware (and other galley essentials) you love to live/travel with!
2014/11/20 update: I received this cocktail shaker and tools (the tools are fine) the other day, and could not get the lid off the cocktail shaker. The cap lid with wood was inside (presumably) but the metal to metal top of the shaker would not come off no matter what I tried. I submerged just the top half in hot water (to expand the metal). No go. I twisted and pushed and twisted and pushed with a grippy thing. No go. I tapped it sideways on the cutting board. Won't budge. I probably worked at it for about 20 minutes with not even a slight tick of movement.
Since I'd gotten a tip (post-purchase) from my friend Kathy that this cocktail shaker was sub par in person and that she returned hers pretty quickly after she got it, I was already expecting it might not be as good as advertised. I called West Elm customer support and they said to keep the one I received and they'd send out a new one right away. The support person said if I get the lid off eventually, then great, I'll have two shakers. Alright then.
Next step: hammer. My friend Kathy said that on hers, the wood top on the cap of the strainer opening part of the shaker would not stay on, so it just became an extra step to take off TWO tops before pouring the cocktail. So I figured if I damaged the shaker part with the hammer, I'd at least be able to get the wooden top out and have a backup in case one was bad. The hammer worked and the top popped off (no dents, even). I unwrapped the wooden top and the wood wasn't even pretending to be attached to the metal part. At all. The glue had separated long ago...and the wood was thin and cheap-looking. Disappointing.
So, I'll see what I get as a replacement, and perhaps get out the epoxy to rejoin the wood to the metal cap...but all in all, NOT what I was hoping for.
