Product Description

This is an extremely efficient Camping Kit which is suitable for Fishing, hunting, Scouts, family picnics, Car Camping, Kayakers.  Add it to your wilderness / Disaster / Earthquake or Survival kit.   Superb camping gear or for anyone who works in or enjoys the outdoors.

A popular Green Whistle has replaced the Orange stopper on this Kettle and will let you know when the water has boiled.  

This 'Basic Kit' includes the following items:

  • 1.6ltr Stainless Steel 'Base Camp' Kettle & fire base. (New model kettle, no rivets & laser welded)
  • Cook set      - which includes: 0.85ltr Pot / Frying Pan (pot lid) / 2 Piece Grill / Gripper Handle

  • Fire-Base and Drawstring carrying bag 

As there is no need to carry fuel, this kit will keep your pack light and save you money at the same time - never worry about running out of fuel again!  
The durable steel fire base and cook set invert up into the bottom of the kettle to make the unit as compact as possible for transport and storage.

Cost FREE to run! Simply gather deadwood, twigs, dry grass, pine cones or whatever natural fuel you find lying around in the area and you can bring 6 cups of water to the boil within a matter of minutes while at the same time (and using the same fuel) cook small amounts of food over the chimney (using the pot on the support) as the kettle boils. Hence, a very small amount of fuel will both boil your water for hot drinks, washing up, personal hygiene, etc. and cook your meal at the same time! This kit works in ALL weather conditions.

For more details on how best to use the Pot-Support and Cook set, please go to our Frequently asked Questions page. This kettle will easily and quickly boil water for a large group of people. If more than 1.6ltrs of water is required, simply refill the kettle with water, place it back on the fire base, re-fuel the chimney and your kettle will boil again within minutes.

Please note: The Kettle has been designed to boil water extremely fast in all weather conditions using very little fuel. When filled with water, the Kelly Kettle should always be carried upright to avoid any spillage/leakage from the water spout or chimney top.

Older Kettles may have an Orange Rubber or Cork Stopper. These MUST ALWAYS be removed before using the kettle. The Kettle must never be boiled with these older stoppers in the spout.

One of the best inventions ever! I pack my kayak with my Ultimate Base Camp kit, Dry Bag full of dehydrated foods in baggies, a jug of water and my jungle hammock/bivi w/ tarp and paddle off into Neverland for the weekend. What a fun way to get out of lawn work! Review by sasquatch (Posted on 05/04/2017)

My Kelly kettle kit arrived safely on Tuesday, many thanks. It really is a thing of beauty, absolutely love it :)
Today was my first opportunity to fire it up. I was amazed just how easy it was to light and just how quickly it boiled 1.5 litres of water with just a few twigs. No ones hedge is safe around here now :D

All I seem to have done today is collect twigs, boiled water and sat making tea in the garden. I feel so chilled out, just watching the smoke. I do smell rather like a garden bonfire The wind is light and variable here so no matter where you sit the smoke gets you.

Can't wait to take it on my next canoe trip :)
Many thanks & best wishes
Roger :)

Hi I have a stainless steel base camp Kelly kettle which Santa delivered last year. It has been used a lot during the year on several scout camps and river canoe cruises. I like the simplicity of its design and how effective it is at doing its job. It lives in the back of my van so it is always at hand for a hot brew or tasty meal. I have also purchased the hobo stove and mug set to complete the set.
Its a big thumbs up from me and i would recommend them to anyone.

Hi and thanks for your very speedy handling and delivery, the fabulous kettle arrived yesterday morning by An Post (Irish National Postal Service)

We tried it out and yes it does everything it said on the label, hot water in minutes with some sticks, leaves, straw, grass, anything that burns.
We're very happy with it and if it doesn't rain too much this year, we'll put it to good use when we're camping.
At the moment we boil the water in it to do the dishes!

Great invention! Absolutely wonderful! Wish we knew of it existence when we first started camping way back in the sixties.

Dear Kelly Kettle company,

I'd like to give you a thumbs up for your superfast service. Shipped 28th, arrived 31st in the Netherlands. That is amazingly fast. Besides that I noticed that shipping charges on the box were 10 Euro, whereas you only charge your customers 5! One hardly sees that in the internet shopping mall nowadays. I haven't had the time to try out the kettle yet, but will do so soon and hope to take it on a Bushcraft or hiking trip soon as well.

Kind regards,
Sebastian Aller
