Product Description

This is an extremely efficient Camping Kit which is suitable for Fishing, hunting, Scouts, fun 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 simply enjoys the outdoors.

The Green Whistle (has replaced the Orange stopper) will let you know when the water has boiled.  

This 'Ultimate Kit' includes the following items:

  • 1.6ltr Stainless Steel 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
  • Pot / Base Support - two pieces which flat pack for easy packing. Use either as a pot-support over the chimney top for cooking fast items, or use as a support under the fire-base to prevent the ground beneath from scorching!
  • Cup set         - 500 & 350ml cups with silicone CooLIp pieces, silicone coated foldable handles, measurements on the inside of the cup & polished interior for easy cleaning.
  • Hobo Stove  - for cooking over the fire base.
  • Camping Plate Set  (All the accessories are made from Stainless Steel)   
  • Drawstring carrying bag 

Simply fuel your kettle with sticks, pine cones, bark, dry grass, etc to boil approximately 6 cups of water fast outdoors in any weather!  Uses a very small amount of fuel to heat water for hot drinks, washing up, personal hygiene, etc. 

There are various cooking options with the kit.

1) Use the pot-support to cook fast items like noodles, soup, popcorn, etc over the chimney of the kettle as the water comes to the boil.

2) Once boiled, remove the kettle and place the Hobo Stove on the fire base to create a stable wood stove for use with any size pot or pan.  Refuel the Hobo & Base with sticks etc, and cook for as long as you need!

3) Drop the 2 piece grill set onto the fire base to grill chops, steak, sausages, chicken, etc..  Or place a pot on the grill to do some simple cooking. 

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!   All fit neatly within the kettle itself for transport or storage.  

For more details on how best to use the various Pot/Base Support, Hobo Stove and Cook set accessories, please click HERE to see each one  individually.  Our FAQ page may also be helpful.  If more than 1.6ltrs of water is required (this kettle will easily and quickly boil water for 10-14 people within a matter of minutes) simply refill the kettle with water and place it back on the firebase. Refuel the chimney again and your kettle will boil again within approx. 3-5 minutes.

Fire Base & Drawstring carrying bag are included as standard with each Kelly Kettle. The durable steel fire base inverts up into the bottom of our kettles to make the unit as compact as possible for transport and storage.

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.

Ok i am not a techno person just worked out how to do the review here sorry guys , Ok build quality first , i was very surprised not all sharp edges i guess the hobo stove part had a couple but a quick rub over with an emery board nail file all sorted so it has to be a big 5* , as for user ease my wife and i are both disabled my wife has arthritus and has managed to pour water and make a brew no issues so tells you it is easy to hold she did struggle at first i had to make sure she never put her hand over the chimney but now she is ace with it so ease of use 5* , Value well i have priced a few of these up and while some come close to Kellys price check out their build quality , in the kelly they even join the 2 parts of the rack others leave it as 2 parts and yup i guess one part will go missing so kelly have thought it out before making it .
My wife did point out no cutlery as a minor moan but again if they put them in the price would have to go up so again i see why no cutlery .
Would i recommend these to others 100% i would they are great i will be making sure people know about Kelly Kettles buy one and never look back ,we now plan on carrying it in the boot of the car because if you get stuck ever in a jam or well broken down we always have water with us and a brew kit so now this means pop to a safe place behind a barrier and whip up a brew and watch others come asking lol .
PS another little use was if you carry an old pillow case or towel once you have finished using the kettle while it is still hot wrap it in a towel or pillow case and pop in the sleeping bag to take the chip off , yes preppers do multi task things

So impressed
Rate this product?
Just arrived out of the box lit and boiling water in a few minutes, I have a wood fired range for the winter but this will be perfect for heating water to wash up and cooking my meals outdoors in the summer with pruning I bring home from my gardening work. Wow I'm so impressed with the build quality ease of use and how much heat produced from a few pieces of dry wood. I'll have a go at cooking on it tomorrow. I'll soon get my money back on the saving on my electricity bill. Review by Rachel (Posted on 04/09/2022)
Nice camping gear
Rate this product?
I have owned a smaller 0.5 liter kettle of a different make in anodized aluminum. That is only suited for one person so I decided to get a base camp model with all accessories as it will do for me and my fiancée who is now pregnant. The kit is also great for emergencies or power outages. Shipping was fast and price reasonable. I like the measurements on the cups, it is a little heavy and bulky for hiking but will fit nicely in a big army Bergen then again the Arctic sleep bags are much heavier.
Overall glad I bought it. I used some paper from some packaging and filled near full, it took about 10 mins to boil. Not as easy to clean as non stick but more durable and will last longer. I just ordered extra pot support to use on the base as well. Ideal for picnic ????.

An outstanding piece of kit. For boiling water outdoors with natural fuels, I can't see anything to beat it.
I've had it for almost two years now.
It's been everywhere from hot dry beaches to cold damp forests and it hasn't let me down once.

A kettle with a soul
Rate this product?
Excellent customer relation, excellent business and voila my kettle has arrived in perfect condition. I have tried it immediately. I must say that it has boiled water faster than I was expecting. Simply I have looked for an anchor point at where the handle attaches to the body that would be beneficial for hanging the cap without interferring with the handle swinging. Otherwise it can fall off when I turn the handle. Moreover a folding stainless steel spork would complete the kit. You can use it as usual or use it to turn whatever is on the grill.
Anyway I have like this kettle too much. Thank you.

I just received my stainless base camp kettle and i have to say i am impressed. It arrived 2 days early and it is a thing of beauty. I took it out immediately and used a piece of the box and some wet branches to boil some lake water to christen it. It powered thru my abuse and boiled two kettles full in no time! Excellent concept Excellent product! Review by Jer (Posted on 30/10/2020)
A truly ideal piece of gear...

After purchasing my first Kelly Kettle (aluminum) I moved up to Thompson, MB to teach. Anyone who knows Thompson, knows that you should never leave town in winter season without a survival gear kit in your vehicle. I now have 2 complete Ultimate Base Camp kits... one for each of our vehicles... AND during the summer months they are part of our kayak/jungle hammock adventure kit. Yeah man! I just love my Kelly gear! Review by Brat with Cat (Posted on 15/10/2018)

Hello Kelly kettle.
I bought one off you. Works great and is a very useful piece of equipment for power down situation. We have seen this recently, not just in Ireland, but Indian sub continent, Latin America and many countries. I have the security that if it happens here, my family n me will be fine. If power is out for whatever reason it runs by sticks! A real life saver and as you know excellent camping accessory for your kit. Your customer service is good and when ordering you can track delivery. 5/5.
Awesome. Thank you!

The best camping kit ever. Review by Mogge (Posted on 02/03/2017)
Best kit I've bought....
Rate this product?
Ive got this kit and a fly me to the moon hammock and other then sleeping bag and cloths.
That's my kit. Packs small and plays big. Ive cut my general kit down to half and the kelly kettle is a big part of that. After a long day in the boat we pull up on the beach and within about ten min's Ive got hot tea and am ready to cook a can of beans. After you are done you got coals to start a fire with. I bought one, now my sons got one and most of my friends.
Best dam piece of kit Ive ever had!

Was a GREAT stove!
Rate this product?
Of all the new gear I bought this year, the Ultimate Stainless Base Camp Kit was the pick of the trip. We used it the whole trip for all our cooking. Even in sites where there wasn't enough wood for a camp fire there was plenty for this stove. All we had to do is pull it out, and the younger members of the group were gathering twigs and cones to fuel the stove.
I love this stove and will buy a smaller one for solo tripping.

It (Kelly Kettle Kit) has literally changed the way we spend our time out on the land.

Hi KK,
This is Chris and Alexandra John from Yellowknife, NWT. A friend told us about Kelly Kettle, and we've been hooked since. We travel weekly to remote locations and are in need of a hot meal and a bit of warmth. Nearly every Sunday we tend to explore the lands around here. We life in and explore the sub-arctic weekly.

Here are two photos:
The top one with the sunset is at Mirage Islands, Great Slave Lake on New Years Day. We had travelled as far as we could make in the 5 hours of sunlight, and needed a bit of of a break before we headed home.

The second one is on the last day of Moose Hunting Season - January 31st on the North Arm of Great Slave Lake. Although it was late in the day, we were cold and in need of some warmth and nourishment before we took the trek home.

We (and our friends) have been loving our Kelly Kettles. They burn great in these cold temperatures and the design roars them up to life in a couple minutes. We're still working on our ideal setup, but right now we:

- Light the KK, get it boiling for a meal. (make the meal ie. Backpackers pantry meal)
- Refill it, get it boiling for Tea. (a few large cups of whatever Tea we want) (we learned quickly to use insulated cups)
- Put the pot aside, and the hobo stove on, and use it for a fire. The rocket stove/bottom pot keeps the snow from affecting the fire, so we get a nice fire going. Now the snow doesn't melt and kill the fire at the base.

This is really good for us because with biofuel we don't need to bring any extra fuel, and we can never run out! Once we get any stage going, we can run it for however long we want because the fuel is always available!

I've been up North here for 18 years, and until the Kelly Kettle, haven't seen anything that compares. Thank you for making such a solid product at a good price! It has literally changed the way we spend our time out on the land. We're looking forward to many more years of exploration with your products supporting us.

Thanks for making such a good product that really helps us on our journeys.
