SM Stainless Steel ‘Trekker’ Kelly Kettle
A highly efficient Stainless Steel outdoor camp Kettle (the fire base is also stainless steel) which is suitable for trekkers, hikers, kayakers, backpackers, bikers, and all outdoors enthusiasts who need to keep their pack light. Also suitable for car, camping and wilderness survival kits / disaster kits.
This lightweight kettle fits neatly into a rucksack or backpack.
As there is no need to carry fuel these kettles 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 camel dung etc.) this kettle will operate perfectly well, even in a storm and will bring 2 Mugs of water to a rolling boil within a matter of minutes.
If more hot water is required (this kettle will easily boil water quickly for a party of 4-6 people) simply refill the kettle and place it back on the fire base and refuel the chimney again. The kettle will be boiled again within a matter of minutes where water can be used for more hot drinks, boil-in-the-bag, bathing, washing up, etc. A wonderful piece of camping equipment.

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.
