The discussion on coffee pots has me thinking about how some people recommend tea kettles instead of coffee pots. Where can you get a decent sized tea kettle that would be ok to take to the BWCA. I have backpacking sized .75 liter kettle, but I would like something bigger.
We tried two different brands of kettles and found them wanting. The lids on both of them were all but impossible to lift when the kettle was hot, had handles that heated up and both dribbled water more than poured.
In the end I gave up on finding a tea kettle and use an aluminum coffee pot instead. It was very cheap (50 cents at a garage sale as I recall) pours well and I can get the lid off. The only thing I would caution is that if you make coffee in it, clean it well or you will have coffee flavored tea.
It has been several years since we tried a tea kettle so they may have improved since then.
This may not have the capacity you need. I use a similar style by Primus for solo trips that is only .9 liters, and I find the capacity a little small, I like to have some hot water sitting around for whatever. I like the "squat" compact design of both. This one is 1.4 liters, I should probably order one of these.
For short (3 nights or less) solo canoe and backpacking trips I use this 600cc mug for my entire cook set. I can fit my stove and 1 110g fuel canister perfectly inside of it. I made a lid from an aluminum pie pan by cutting a circle just slightly bigger than the top of the mug so I can fold over all around to form a tight-fitting lid. Very light. Would work as a tea pot.
