"Hello Kelly Kettle Company! I just wanted to write and tell you how pleased I was with my purchase. I just came back from a 3 day camping trip and took my brand new KK Scout in place of my gas fired campstove. I was able to boil water for coffee, scramble up some eggs for breakfast, fry up several burgers for lunch and cook hot dogs and hamburgers for dinner, AMAZING! My girlfriend, who was somewhat skeptical when she saw the Kettle, was amazed at the amount of heat it generated just from twigs, sticks and bark. It got so hot, in fact that it slightly warped the aluminum lid for the pot which I was using as a fry pan (no worries, it still fits just fine). The base works great on its own as a cookstove - it generates more than enough heat to cook a decent meal. I love the fact that I don't have to carry fuel around, and it will make a great addition to my emergency kit.
My only concern is that it took me so long to hear about the Kelly Kettle . . .every camper, survival geek, or outdoorsperson NEEDS a Kelly Kettle in their kit pack.
Thank you for making such a great product!"
