I use one of these:

It doesn't really cost much more than a pot, but it's already outfitted with two threaded ports and an airlock bung. I added a $12 thermowell for temperature control, and will probably add a racking valve soon to the other port.

Oh yeah, and it can be used as a brew kettle too, if you want.

These caverns are awesome! I happen to have a 6gal 7gal and a 10 gal of these caverns. They are easy to move around and clean. They cost less than the SS brew bucket.
