It's been a long time in the waiting, but now the very popular medium sized Kelly Kettle 'Scout' is available in a stainless steel option, meaning that you can now purchase all kettles in this stronger, more rugged outdoor material.
Kelly Kettles are fantastic outdoor cooking and brewing tools! They even work in storm conditions, and this is where they get their other name of 'storm kettle' from. You really can make a cup of tea or coffee within just a few minutes, all with minimal fuss.
Every bushcrafter, survivalist, camper, fisherman, and forest school practitioner should have one. They're great fun to be used on outdoor trips, holidays and Bushcraft adventures. They're also a good emergency kettle for when there's a power cut, or for the emergency services and humanitarian aid. We used our older style Kelly Kettles with great success on a series of conservation work parties we worked on several years ago. We were based in a woodland environment and had lots of fuel to use in the kettles all around us, in form of twigs, birch bark and dry pine cones. The cups of tea were a very welcome addition on a winter's day by all that attended.
Kelly Kettles are also very simple to use, and environmentally friendly! There's no need to carry smelly, toxic fuel or gas, simply collect any natural resources, such as twigs, pine cones and leaves, light a small fire in the firebase, and place the full kettle on top! That's it, and within minutes you'll have enough water for a brew, and if you buy the optional cooking set and pot support you'll be able to cook a meal on it too!
Kelly Kettles have zero running costs and make an excellent gift for anyone who loves the outdoors, and those who have an allotment will love one! They're certainly a Bushcraft essential!
