I concur on the second boiling pot of water making for easy dishes.

Also on one pot inside another, with water in-between, for even cooking.

To round out everything the old revere ware types with heavier copper bottoms are sweet.

Double boiler idea is great

Hey, if you want me to take a dump in a box and mark it "guaranteed", I will. I got spare time.

Some people were recently talking about coffee so I thought I would share some experiences from a couple of winters ago when I obsessed over finding the best way to make coffee under the following circumstances:

1. Strong; 2. 15-25 people; 3. Fast.

I concluded that the three requirements dictated making Cowboy Coffee in my 36 cup pot. Boil the water, pour in 2.5 cups of coarse grounds and stir vigorously, let steep for a few minutes and then use spoon to break up floating mass of grounds and re-stir vigorously. After about 8 minutes of steeping stir vigorously and pour 1 cup of cold water down vortex of funnel to help settle grounds. I immediately fill a serving thermos to keep coffee hot throughout breakfast and serve out of the pot until the pot is empty. There are shockingly virtually no grounds in your teeth.

1. Percolators take WAY too long and they don't make strong enough coffee.
2. French Presses aren't large enough for a group of 15-25 but make great coffee for smaller groups.
3. Using "tea" bags full of coffee lead to bags floating around in the pot and the grounds weren't getting thoroughly wet and steeped.
4. I have never had a problem finding a camp companion to clean all the crap out of the pot after breakfast.

Good luck.
