    Default Need a new stew pot/kettle and some cookware ideas

    I have a blue Enamelware stew pot/1.75 qt kettle and am in the market for a new one.

    I'd like something a little bigger and the same or less weight. I can't really find something to fit the bill. The 3.5 qt pot is double the size and double the weight.

    While I'm at it I wouldn't rule out a cookware set that nest's together if the price and weight were right. I generally use 8 & 10 inch fry pans and my cook pot. Something like this would be great if the pot were the right dimensions. I need a pot taller than wide.

    Anyone have some ideas?

    No ideas? Rei has a descent selection (at least online) though I don't want to get into spending hundreds on pots/pans, but I need a new stew pot/kettle.

    These are nice pots, and good people to buy from. I have one of the smaller sized ones and it's very well built- it's not as light as aluminum, but alot more durable, also not as light as Ti, but alot less coin.

    The enamelware pot we use in the camper is getting chipped up, but still got a few seasons left.
    For the river/other camping trips, I like to browse & handle gear like this - sometimes to meet more than one need. I usually use only one pot, but a couple I use are large enough to put other stuff into - like my stove, etc when space matters. Some are very light if that matters. It's getting harder to pick out crummy gear at the specialty places anyways. Some stores have heavier stuff, but is durable. Besides REI, AMH, Barney's, Beaver Sports (FAI), I like B&J Commercial, 6th Ave Outfitters for some things.

    That looks like good stuff. Looks like the correct size too. Thanks for the link.

    Forgot about B&J and the other's, good idea. I have an enamel pot right now and I like it, but its chipped pretty good.

    Thanks for the ideas guys.

    As long as I am not carrying them on my back, I take my 10 inch cast iron skillet and 12 inch dutch oven everywhere with me during the summer. They stay in the truck and are great at fish camp. The dutch oven is the single most versitile cooking vessel ever (IMHO). I love mine. Can't go wrong with well seasoned cast iron!!!
