Put the brew pot partially full on the biggest element. Place any sauce pans you've got on the other elements. When any of the smaller pots/pans get close to boil, dump them in the brew pot.

Shop for a turkey fryer. Got a propane tank already?

Some pretty obvious ones here, but get your tap water nice and hot before putting it on to boil. Also, keep your lid on until it finally starts to boil.
I have a fairly old electric range myself and haven't had much of an issue when I use hot water and a lid.

+ another 1. Black Friday special at bass pro shop they were $50 a few years ago and came with a 5 gallon aluminum pot. Sounds like you're doing partial boils (or have giant burners on your stove), and a 5 gal kettle would work great for that.

The number of times I have kicked myself for buying my incredibly marked up $150 burner and stand at my LHBS!

Propane means cooking outside. It's awesome if you have the room. And these burners fly to boiling. Game changing.
