A highly efficient piece of camping equipment which is suitable for Trekkers, Hikers, Kayakers, Backpackers, Bikers, and all outdoors enthusiasts who need to keep their pack light. Also suitable for Car Camping and a Wilderness Survival Kit or Disaster Kit. This lightweight kettle fits neatly into a Rucksack or Backpack.
As there is no need to carry fuel, these kettles will keep your pack light and save you money at the same time - never worry about running out of fuel again! Using any naturally occuring solid fuel (sticks, pine cones, dry camel dung! etc.) this kettle will operate perfectly well, even in strong winds / storm and will bring 2 Mugs of water to a rolling boil within a matter of minutes.
Add our 'Trekker' Cook Set and Hobo Stove to turn the fire base of your kettle into a stand-alone Camping Stove. Please see our Accessories Category for these items. If more hot water is required (this kettle will easily boil water quickly for a party of 4-6 people), simply refill the kettle and place it back on the fire base and re-fuel the chimney again. The kettle will be boiled again within a matter of minutes where water can be used for more hot drinks, boil-in-the-bag, bathing, washing up, etc.
Since 01 October 2017 our Aluminium 'Trekker' Kettles are Anodised. Anodisation is primarily used to toughen up the outer shell of the Aluminum. The process creates an Aluminium Hydroxide layer on the surface of the metal which makes it harder and more resistant to scratches and scrapes.
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.

- Fast, easy and light
My kettle just arrived, 5 days after ordening (shipment to Belgium) and I immediately tried it. It was quite windy, but there was no problem to light the fire in the firebase. Placing the kettle on top, it creates a chimney effect, in wich even the most unexperienced fire-maker can make a good fire really quick. 4 and a half minutes after starting the fire, I had a rolling cook with a ridiculous low amount of firewood used.
Probably because of the relative low temperature of the chimney-wall (not much above 100°C, I gues), the type of soot on the inside is very oily and has a strong odour. I'm not sure the included bag will keep this odour out of the rest of your backpack contents, so maybe put the kettle in an airtight bag to avoid having all your trekking clothes smelling like smoked on a wet campfire.

- 10 out of 10
Dear Kelly Kettle,
Well the Kelly Kettle arrived this morning here in Torrevieja and I tried it out with wood pellets (6 euro /15 kilo bag here) and I was amazed at how fast it brought the 2 cups of water to the boil.
Like everyone else, I'm economising in this recession and I got the Kelly kettle as back up for when the gas goes and to occasionally boil a cup of water for tea. I'm using it on the balcony and no problem.
Rating the Kelly kettle on the scale of ten I would give it 10 out of 10.
I would recommend it fully.
