We have been using Kelly Kettles for years, but I thought we should try one of the new stainless steel sets. We used an SS Scout Kelly Kettle Set.
We heated beans on the top while the water was boiling for tea and then cooked sausages over the embers in the fire pan. As you can see this was very successful and all fuelled by just a handful of twigs. Afterwards it all packed back into the base of the kettle ready for next time.
This Kettle boils 1.1 Ltrs of water at a time and is ideal for Car Camping, Scouts, Picnics, Hunters, Caravaning camping gear, Wilderness Survival Kit, 4 x 4 off-roaders, Disaster & Emergency Kits, Humanitarian Aid, kayakers or anyone working in the outdoors. These kettles work extremely well in both good and harsh weather conditions, they are an extremely important piece of camping equipment for any outdoor person. Using whatever natural fuel is lying around (twigs, dry grass, heather, Birch bark, Pine cones, dry animal dung, etc) our kettles will bring water to the boil within a matter of minutes. Never carry fuel again. These kettles are cost-FREE to run, eco-friendly as they operate on carbon neutral fuels, and are great fun to use.
Kelly Kettle Sets are available in three sizes, 'Trekker' for the solo explorer, 'Scout' (above) for couples and small groups and the 'Base' for large groups and families. Visit www.green-shopping.co.uk for more information.
