I would like to hear what people use for pots and pans in their galley

You had me at coffee.

I love our titanium cookware (we got it at a boat show).
Also, recently, we bought some very lightweight versatile plastic cookware for the microwave at Sur La Table. One piece we use a lot is the Lékué Microwave Omelet Maker
. What we love about it is the cleanup is much easier because nothing sticks. It's foldable, squishable and bendable, and extremely lightweight so it's ideal for storing on our sailboat.
I also chucked my aluminum
Moka coffeepot because I didn't want to ingest aluminum
that might be bad for my health
over the long run. Instead, I bought a small stainless steel
pot that operates the same way - put it on the burner and water
below percolates through the coffee into a resevoir above, and I love it.
I also got a stainless steel
pump-action milk frother. Love that too.
Last suggestion: get the small thermos drink cups with the tops that you have to press for the liquid to come out the hole. We got ours at Target. We use them to keep hot drinks hot and cold drinks cold, and they last that way for hours. These have become something we use daily, and pretty much the only drink container we use, unless we're having wine or beer
