water pot for on top of stove

I was wondering if anyone has put some type of pot on top of their stove to let water evaporate? I am using a P68 pellet stove, which has been great. But its a dry heat.
Any help of what to use or where buy will be greatly appreciated. Ray

I just put a pot I bought at the Linen store in the kitchen dept. Wide open with handles on both sides to manuveur easily without spilling. . . . seems to work fine. The bottoms get a bit crusty, but I haven't found a way around that. I've tried stainless, and enameled, both get crusty and ruined for anything else.

I bought a nice cast Iron Pot at lowes for steaming water. It's nice looking and I loose a inch or two each day. What works 100 plus times better is my Ultrsonic Humidifier. It holds I think 1 or 2 Gallons and I put it on my hopper lid on my Harman DVC 500 rice coal stove. It puts out a stong mist which falls right down over the hot air blowing out and blends well. I run through the whole amount each day. The cast iron pot is cute but does very little. The hopper lid gets warm at best. Works great for me.

We used to use a big ironstone coffee percolator, the big kind you occasionally see in rail road caboose pictures.

We left the lid off it, and often made tea with the water...

i use a 1 gallon cast iron pot on a wood not pellet stove. at this time of the year i go thru about 2 gallons of water a day, depending upon outside temps. makes a big difference.

I bought a small black kettle for one of my wood inserts and a brass train sits atop my other insert ... The train is neat as the steam comes out of the stack as the water heats up. It was a gift, so not sure where it was bought.

I use a vaporizer it puts out lot more moisture in the room than having water sitting in a pot. Also will bring up the temperture in the room more quickly.
