Squeezing conventional kitchen serving plates, pots and pans into a RV galley cabinet is like trying to jam a square peg in a round hole. Their traditionally round shapes just aren’t meant to fit inside small spaces. However, if you stick to square shaped kitchenware, your cabinets won’t be as messy as this:
Square bowls and plates are easy enough to find, but square pots and pans have always been a challenge – until now.
It took a sailor who loves cooking and sailing to come up with a groundbreaking idea for RV kitchen cookware. In a classic lightbulb moment while solo sailing around the world, Graham Dalton wondered:
Why are pots and pans round?
And such a pain to store in tight cabinets?
With time on his hands to ponder the answer, he crafted the concept of Smartspace Cookware.
- Square, induction cookware that stacks inside each other with removable handles.
- Works on induction cooktops in boats, RV’s, campsites and homes with a limited stovetop space.
These durable, induction based pots are a stackable set of three square pots with rounded corners and one detachable, heat-resistant handle that fits on all four sides of each pot.
Smartspace Cookware pots and pans are made with a high quality Teflon interior and come with silicon mats that protect the pots when storing – doubling as countertop trivets while the cookware is in use. Even better, the Smartspace pots and lid save clean-up duty: they can be used as food storage containers for the refrigerator.
The stove-to-oven fry pan and optional lid is sold separately than the three pot kit and comes with its own removable handle. The pan allows you to nest all of the pots inside, giving you the ability to stack all of them into one small space in your RV kitchen cabinet.
Ready to trash your round RV pots and pans? A complete set of SmartSpace cookware complete set comes with a stackable 3 quart, 2 quart and 1.5 quart pots and a frying pan.
You receive two detachable heat resistant handles, four silicone pads that can be used as trivets to protect kitchen surface from heat, as well as serving as protective liners between the pans to prevent scratching. No matter how hot the pan becomes the silicone pads can handle the weight of the pan and the temperature with out tearing or melting.
Smartspace Cookware is pretty cool. We can’t think of a better idea saving space in your RV kitchen. Can you?
