Cook pots - large sized for big groups.

My 50 year old (literally) cook pots have reached retirement age and I am looking for some new pots. What I really want is two pots - one about 5 liter or so and one smaller plus a fry pan. I have been looking around and honestly I can’t find pots that are fairly light weight and that have a bail. They all seem to have fancy handle affairs of one kind or another. I cook on fire and sometimes stove. I like a bail on my pots.

Suggestions? Does the new anodized aluminum stuff work well over a fire?

is this what you’re looking for?

Hard to beat the old time granite wear for low priced camp cookware, IMHO. There are usually some good deals on them on eBay. Like this:

Heavier duty, and even for the price plus shipping this stainless copper-bottomed Revere Ware is a darned nice big pot that would last for decades. The handle on the side and flat bail would make it very easy to control.

My parents gave me a set of that copper bottomed Revere Ware when I moved out on my own for college nearly 50 years ago and I still have them.

EDIT: There are several of those steel copper-bottoms on eBay. Found a Sears version for $40.
