I was introduced to the Kelly Kettle when a friend came by for dinner one Christmas with a copy of "A Passion for Angling." We watched all 6 hours on Christmas Day. I was intrigued by the kettle Chris and Bob were boiling their tea water in. I thought something like that would be perfect for winter trout fishing here in North Carolina. Another friend in London arranged to have one drop shipped to me from Farlow's in the early 90's, before they were readily available in the US.
Hello Kelly Kettle Team,
I purchased a large stainless Kelly Kettle from you (www.kellykettleusa.com) a couple of weeks ago. This weekend was my first time using it. I went out to the desert with a group of about a dozen friends - we try to get in a couple of these camping trips each year. The area we camp in is often very windy, and even car camping with propane stoves, it can be a bit of a struggle to get coffee going in the morning. ....view more...»
Patrick & Seamus:
Just a note. Here in northern Minnesota we have been having Monsoon type weather, 34 of the last 41 days we have had rain! Constant and often very heavy rain! The lakes here are more than a foot above normal. That is a lot for here!
I just wanted to let you know that I am really pleased with the Kelly Kettle. I bought a 2 pint kettle a few years ago, and it has been a great thing to have around.
"I just tried my new Base Camp Kelly Kettle. It works EXACTLY as promised. From the time I put match to tinder until just under a half gallon of water was at a rolling boil took 6 minutes ( I timed it). I will be recommending the Kelly Kettle to everyone I knowview more...»
My Kettle arrived this afternoon! Thank you very much. This afternoon I boiled several kettlefuls of water and made a cuppa tea. I was very much impressed with the efficiency of the kettle. Even if I let the fire burn down to embers with no visible flames, the kettle was easy to start up again. I boiled my first quantity of water in about three minutes. I used birch bark and lint from a clothes dryer as tinder....view more...»

"Hello Kelly family, we´ve had our kettle now for 12 years or so and it´s been a trusty companion in West Africa, the Yorkshire Dales, many parts of Spain, and ít´s off again in a week or so to France. It really is an essential item for any traveller/camperview more...»
"Hello Kelly Kettle.
I’ve just done a review of you Kettle on my blog at http://irishbackwoods.blogspot.com/. We have no immersion heater or electric kettle in our house, so the kettle gets used most days of the year, in the summer many times every day.
"Just wanted to offer up my thanks for this truly amazing item you produce. Being a long practicing Bushcraft fanatic I have spent a lot of time boiling pots over the camp fireview more...»
