LG Stainless Steel ‘Base Camp’ Kelly Kettle
This Kelly Kettle boils approximately 9.5 - 6 oz. Mugs of water at a time and is the size traditionally used by Irish anglers. Suitable for base camps, car, camping, scouts, picnics, hunters, outfitters outposts, emergency preparedness kits, humanitarian aid stations or for anyone working in the forests or the great outdoors.
The Kelly Kettle works in harsh weather conditions bringing water to boil within a matter of minutes using whatever solid fuel is naturally occurring in the area - sticks, grass, pine cones, bark etc. No need to carry fuel ever!
Kelly Kettle users have described their kettles as the "Greatest Invention of all Time".
Cost-Free, Carbon-Neutral, Eco Friendly Camping at its Very Best!
Add our Pot-Support and Cook Set to cook small amounts of food (noodles, rice, oatmeal, re-hydrated food, soup, etc.) over the Kelly Kettle while your water boils.
Note: The fire bases invert partially up into the bottom of our kettles to make the unit as compact as possible for transport and storage. Normally, the fire base will not invert fully up into the kettle. This is particularly evident with the Medium size kettle. Never force the inverted base up into the kettle to try and achieve a 'perfect' fit as this may cause damage to the kettle or result in the base becoming stuck within the kettle.

Depending on the fuel you are using, the Kelly Kettle ® will boil water in 3 to 5 minutes. It is essentially a double-walled chimney with the water contained in the chimney wall. Once the camp-kettle is filled with water simply start a very small fire in the base, set the kettle on the base and drop additional fuel (twigs, leaves, grass, paper, etc.) down the chimney. The large internal surface area of the chimney heats the water very quickly. When the water boils hold the Handle at an angle of 90° to the Kettle - then lift the kettle clear of the base.
To pour, lift it by the handle and tilt it using the cork chain.
If additional water is required simply refill the kettle with water and place it back on the base when the fire is still burning. Refill the chimney with fuel and you can look forward to a second kettle full of boiling water within a matter of minutes. Our kettles work in even the most extreme weather conditions - in fact, they work better in wind so there is no need to find shelter when brewing up
- Always remove the cork before lighting the kettle.
- The cork is only to be used for transporting cold water.
- The water spout should be free of ALL obstructions when the kettle is in use. Boiling the kettle with any obstruction in the water spout can result in a burn to the user or others in close proximity.
- Never use the kettle when the water chamber is empty.
