If shipping to AK, HI or Canada, please email us.

Fire Base & Drawstring carrying bag are included as Standard Equipment with each Kelly Kettle.
Now has a stainless steel firebase! A highly efficient Outdoor Camping Kit which is suitable for Car Camping, Family Picnics, Scouts, Kayakers, Caravan camping or anyone who works or enjoys the outdoors. A great piece of survival gear for Wilderness Survival Kits / Disaster Kits.

This 54 oz/1.59L Kelly Kettle, Cook Set, Pot Support, all fit neatly together into their own drawstring carrying bag which can be put into or carried hanging from a Rucksack or Backpack.

As there is no need to carry fuel, this kit will keep your pack light and save you money at the same time – never worry about running out of fuel again! Using any naturally occurring solid fuel (sticks, pine cones, dry animal dung, etc.) this unit will operate perfectly well, even in the most extreme weather conditions or terrain. The kettle brings the water to a rolling boil (purifying the water) within a matter of minutes while you reheat or cook food at the same time using the cook set on the Pot-Support over the chimney of the kettle. Hence, a very small amount of fuel will both boil your water and cook your meal at the same time!

Note: the Pot-Support is only suitable for use with quick cooking items such as Soup, Boil-in-the-bag, re-hydrating food, reheating etc.

If more hot water is required (this kettle will easily boil water quickly for a party of 8-10 people), simply refill the kettle and place it back on the fire base and refuel the chimney again. The kettle water will be boiled again within a matter of minutes where water can be used for more hot drinks, bathing, washing up, etc.

    I got one of these because I heard it described years ago and have wanted to try one ever since. I have run it on whatever sticks I had to hand, but I also keep a few handfuls of spruce popsicle sticks from the crafting supplies cupboard. There’s no need to fill the base. I have some small firelighters that I also keep in the bag, they are wood shavings (not sawdust) in a matrix of fuel. I fill the kettle and light the firelighter then drop popsicle sticks in the top to keep the fire going, but not large. I never have fire coming out the top and try to keep it burning clean, don’t overfuel it. Once the kettle boils I lift it off and leave the fire to burn out, which takes only a few minutes. You have to orient the base so you get some draft, but not a wind hard enough to blow the fire out the top before it can heat the water. It might be fast, but it isn’t efficient. I have used mine from the coast of CA up to Canada in summer and winter. Even at 0F the kettle boiled quickly, it only took a few minutes, even with a strong breeze cooling the outside. The metal of the base is thin enough that it doesn’t hold a lot of heat. When I brewed up at the top of a mountain pass last July 4th in Nevada the base was cool enough to pack up a few minutes after we made tea and coffee. Are there problems? Not really. You have to boil it with the stopper out, well you don’t want to blow it out, and I am never sure where to put it so that it doesn’t get very hot or dirty. Usually, I hang it over the handle, and that seems a pragmatic approach. If you fill it very full you have to be careful pouring the first water out, but that’s your own problem. This is not a paid review, I don’t review for money or gifts or reduced prices or anything else, I only review what I have spent my own money on and I won’t say nice things when they aren’t warranted.

    Simple and well made. Interesting that this was made in Ireland; shipped the west coast USA seller and then shipped back to me on the east coast USA. This device sure did travel! Lightweight and easy to pack.

    The ultimate way to recycle dryer lint. I store my lint in a bucket and while camping, I boil soup or water for Tea or coffees. This is handy for all campers. Lightweight and durable. I highly recommend this for camping or TEOTWAWKI.Do you have one for buggin out??

    This is the best gift my survivalist fella has ever received. He made a deer steak on it and loved it!

    I can’t say enough how much we love our Kelly Kettle. As soon as we received itm we tested it out and were surprised with how fast the water boiled and how little wood we used. We ended up using just a handful of twigs to get the water boiling. I would recommend this product to everyone!

    I thought I got the stainless but by my mistake, I got the Aluminum. This is not practical to carry in a pack, takes up a lot of room. Even the small ones I would pass on for hiking. Get yourself a nice little field kit and cook/boil on coals for the BOB. The only use I will have for this is some kind of base camp for multiple people.
