Almost 6yrs Old And Working Brilliantly!Review by P. Wade

Our new Trekker Kettle etc arrived with us in Southern Spain today in super quick time, now complimenting our base camp which is almost six years old and still working brilliantly.
Our Hobo stove is also a well used bit of kit and is treated as a best friend.
Cant praise Kelly Kettle products and service enough you're doing a grand job.
Best wishes

Totally excellent kit that is so much fun to useReview by Ian

I have used my kettle a few times in the local woods to trial it before going native. It boils the water before you know it. It's fun to look around the ground for small pieces of wood and walking in the woods is now partially about finding stuff to burn. I have started it twice with a metal flint but carry a lighter for emergencies. No more worry about leaking gas or empty bottles. Sorted. Brilliant !!!!!! (Posted on 07/12/2015)
Don't hesitate in buyingReview by Matt

I'd been looking into these kettles for about a year. Being undecisive about which one to buy.
I ended buying the 1.6lt aluminium kettle with the pan rest attachment.
The service from start to finish was nothing but excellent.
Dispatched within the 48 hours promised and delivered by DPD.
DPD gave me an hour slot of when the parcel would be delivered. It was 10 mins into the hour delivery frame.

The kettle itself has only been used once to try it in the back garden and it's awesome. Boiled the filled kettle in 4 minutes just using wood shavings and pinecones.

Thank you thank you thank you and well done on the great service.

With the new accessories, it keeps getting betterReview by Carl Brown - Singapore
Rate this product?
I've been using my base camp kettle in the Malaysian jungles and camping on tropical islands for about 5 years. Not much chance of bringing in or sourcing commercial fuels easily plus all the weight involved considering that we need to boil up from various water sources 6-8 litres each per day as well as the inconvenience and time in building fires and keeping them going. Getting the kettle really changed the dynamics of logistics! Conversely, the shape and build of the kettle also allows the boiled water to cool down quickly to fill up canteens, especially since it can be easily immersed in a water source. With the new accessories, it keeps getting better (I had to hold the pan over the chimney before the pot support came out) and the hobo stove completes it. Plus factor - kids get to use the left over embers in the base to polish off a break with toasted marshmallows, which don't burn, as a bribe! (Posted on 18/09/2014)
I've been using a Kelly Kettle for a couple of summers now and really love it. Review by Robin B., Canada
Rate this product?
I've been using a Kelly Kettle for a couple of summers now and really love it. I probably use it more than most people as I am a wilderness canoe guide in Canada and have a new group of tourists out twice a week for a multiday canoe trip. (www.CallOfTheWild.ca) I use the Kelly Kettle twice a day to boil 10 litres or so of water for coffee, tea, pasta, and dishes. The tourists are really interested in how it works - I always tell them where to buy one! (Posted on 05/09/2014)

Not only an exceptional product, but exceptional service too!Review by R. Rabot, U.K.

Not only an exceptional product, but exceptional service too. I use my base camp every time I go Fly fishing and have always had passers by ask "what is it"? Some think it's a rocket. I always offer them a fresh cuppa and tell them where they can buy one.
Will always want one for camping, hiking but mostly my passion fly fishing.
Thanks again.
