Product Description

Place this Hobo Stove™  accessory on to the fire-base of your 'Trekker' Kettle to create a highly effective wood fired Camp Stove.

  • Safe, easy and fun to use: Creates stable cooking surface for pot or fry pan and the fire is safely contained within the unit.
  • Fuel efficient: Heat is directed toward the pot or fry pan on the top.
  • Works in all weather conditions.
  • Uses any solid fuel.
  • Compact & Tough: Packs away inside the Kelly Kettle fire-base

Directions for use

1. Place the Hobo Stove on the Kettles fire-base with the wide rim of the Hobo sitting on the fire-base.
2. Face the circular holes of the fire-base into the wind. Face the large 'feeder' hole in the side of the Hobo Stove away from the wind.
3. Add fuel as required via the top, side 'feeder' hole of the Hobo Stove, or via the holes in the fire-base.
4. Place any size pot or pan on the Hobo Stove to cook :-)

Allow to cool fully before packing. Just flip the Hobo Stove over and it fits perfectly inside the fire-base!

The fire-base becomes extremely hot and will scorch the ground underneath. So where possible 'leave no trace'' and set up on a non-combustible surface (like sand, gravel, large stone) or use our simple Support under the fire-base to insulate the ground from the heat.
In an emergency, the Hobo Stove can be used without the fire-base if a surface for cooking is needed. Simply place the Hobo Stove on the ground and build the fire inside.

We recommend the Hobo Stove be used with our Stainless Steel fire-bases as Aluminium fire-bases can warp and melt from the intense heat.

Packing small

Many of our accessories pack together saving space. The following all pack: Our 350ml cup > inside the 'Trekker' cook set > inside this Hobo Stove > inside the 'Trekker' fire-base > which inverts up into the bottom of kettle itself! Neat, compact storage! 
Please note: The the larger 500ml cup is too large to fit inside the 'Trekker' cook pot.

Never buy nor carry fuel again! Never run out of fuel again! Simply gather deadwood, twigs, dry grass, pine cones or whatever natural fuel you find lying around in the area - and cook your meal.

Simple and tough with nothing to go wrong. If you use a trangia type burner in the pot the distance seems just about right and it's easy to put something under the burner if not. It all nests nicely with the firepot and kettle. It also doesn't weigh a lot so is a top class back up option to carry even if you don't plan using it. Can recommend.

I have found this makes a great little Esbit stove used by itself. Review by Fred (Posted on 03/04/2017)
The Most Useful Accessory by Far
Rate this product?
When I'm backpack or kayak camping, I just take the firebase, the hobo stove, and the pot. This combo saves space and it can take a beating. The kettle isn't heavy... but it's bulky and fragile.

I still love the kettle when I'm car camping, though. And sometimes I make coffee with it in the backyard just for fun... and so my clothes will smell like woodsmoke all day.

Absolutely all I was hoping for!

What an exceptional little accessory for the trekker kettle. JUST what I needed to turn my kettle into a full piece of kit that now HAS to be taken on every trip.

The hobo stove is very strong and well made, fits the firebase like a glove AND provides a stable base for everything from a billy can to a heavy cast iron frying pan.

If you want to save space/go a little lighter, you could technically leave the main kettle at home, pack the fire base, hobo stove and nest these inside a pot, that would see you right cooking and boiling water for any length of time, seeing as the stove runs on biomass.

I have however found; I have great success by firing the kettle as normal to get a brew on, then when my water is boiled and I'm enjoying a lovely cup of tea, I add the hobo stove to the base and from then on, I can feed the fire with bits of stick or whatever, while cooking anything from toast, to a risotto.

Honestly, this little hobo stove has made my Kelly kettle an absolute MUST whenever I go out on a trip. It has meant that I have been able to ditch the fiddly old style cook kit with grill, which if we're honest wasn't really up to much. If your looking for a new stove, the addition of the hobo stove to the Kelly kettle and a reasonable cook pot or billy can, will be the only kit you need to buy for the next 50 years.

I know it sounds like I'm gushing, but this new addition is so slick, I can cook whatever I want so easily and have huge amounts of boiling water for tea/to keep clean in camp. I couldn't recommend this kit more if I tried. Thanks Patrick, you've done a great job.
