Enamel v Aluminium v Stainless Steel

I tip I learned back in the backpacking days:

Of the three materials listed (for cook pots) stainless steel requires the least amount of water to cleanup. Perhaps of interest only to the boondocker as RV parks generally have an abundance of clean water in comparison to places I have backpacked into.

Easier generally means faster, and that's important too, especally when it's my night to do the dishes.

No, but I discovered if you pour water into a cast iron skillet while it's still hot, as in right after you finish cooking, a lot of the grease and such will break free and float on the boiling water which can then be dumped. Sometimes it does sucha good job all you need to do is swab out the skillet then with paper towels. Saves water on clean up. Works better on some food than others.

I've also heard that doing so could crack the cast iron? I'll have to research that one a little more. Memory sometimes...what was I saying...
