I've brewed quite a few all-grain batches on the stove in two pots. I didn't have a chiller.

I put one pot into the sink with ice water.

And for the other, I used a rubbermaid type storage tote. (The same one I soak my bottles in.) Just make sure to add water first. That way, when I put the hot pot in, the water absorbs the heat and not the plastic. Then I add ice and chill.

Just be careful handling those big pots with the scalding hot wort.

I use two pots on a gas stove. I cool first one, then the other. Since I batch sparge, the first pot is put on the stove with the 1st runnings, and starts heating immediately. The second pot gets my second and third batch sparges, so it's 25mins behind anyway. Really, this means that both pots get the same boil time and I only need one IC.
