We, too, use our old aluminum nesting set composed of a larger pot, a smaller pot and a lid. The 2-part handles wrap around the sides to allow for nesting and join together to form the handle when cooking. Our camping teflon pan petered out so we replaced it at REI. We are very happy with it. You really don't need a teapot or a coffee pot while camping. We simply boil water in a pot and can make tea, hot chocolate or coffee from the water. My husband loves the single-serve drip coffee method using a single filter. This website tells you more than you ever wanted to know. Manual Drip Coffee makers He basically uses a $4.00 plastic cone that fits on top of his mug, inserts a single coffee filter, adds ground coffee, adds water and waits for the dripping to stop. Voila! a perfect cup of coffee!
Happy Camping!

Smile Nix aluminum

We had a camping set from our tenting days similar to this:

Texsport Aluminum 4 Person Cook Set New Cookware Campfire Kitchen Camp Hiking | eBay

We found in Homelet that road action caused the aluminum to rub against everything in the cabinet and left aluminum oxide (black) marks everywhere.

We bought a cheap set of SS with SS lids at our local Fred Meyer and have been happy with that. We even use two of the saucepans at home. So in Homelet we have the largest saucepan, the stockpot, the smaller skillet and an unrelated tea kettle. We use the stockpot to heat water for doing dishes, and then for rinsing.

Whether you think you can or think you can't, you're right.

Those look just like the set we use for backcountry travel. Fairly light, and work great.

You rinse dishes when camping? At best, we just usually towel dry.
