Note:
The fire bases invert partially up into the bottom of our kettles to make the unit as compact as possible for transport and storage. Normally, the fire base will not invert fully up into the kettle. This is particularly evident with the Medium size kettle. Never force the inverted base up into the kettle to try and achieve a 'perfect' fit as; this may cause damage to the kettle or result in the base becoming stuck within the kettle.

How to use the Kelly Kettle®

The Kelly Kettle® is easy to use. We recommend that you follow the following five steps when using your Kettle:

To start with, remove the fire base from the bottom of the kettle and place the base on level ground – flat side down.

1. Remove protective cork or rubber stopper from kettle and fill kettle with water. Do not replace the cork - the water spout must be free from ALL obstructions when the kettle is in use. (Note: If you do not need to carry water in the kettle, we recommend that the Cork be removed entirely from the kettle as this will ensure that the kettle is not misused)

2. Fill the base with combustible material such as newspaper, dry grass or very small tinder. Then place the kettle securely on the base.

3. Light fire through the hole(s) in side of the base and face the hole(s) into the wind for extra draught.

4. Insert additional fuel through the chimney (use small twigs or Pine cones for best results).

5. When the water boils, hold the handle at a 90° angle to the body of the Kettle – then lift Kettle clear of the base. Use handle and chain for pouring. If additional boiling water is required, simply refill the kettle, place it back on the fire base and refuel the chimney again!

NOTE:

  • Always remove the cork before lighting the kettle. The cork is only to be used for transporting cold water.
  • Boiling the kettle with ANY obstruction in the water spout can result in a serious burn for the user or others in close proximity.
  • Never hold the handle above the chimney when the kettle is lit as it can result in a burn for the user.
  • Always keep children away from the kettle when in use.
  • Use surplus water to extinguish fire.

How the Kelly Kettle® works

The Kelly Kettle® Volcano Kettle® will boil water in 3 to 5 minutes depending on the fuel you're using. Made from Aluminum or Stainless Steel, it is essentially a double-walled chimney with the water contained in the chimney wall.

Once the camp kettle is filled with water, simply start a very small fire in the base, set the kettle on the base and drop additional fuel (twigs, leaves, grass, paper, etc.) down the chimney.
The large internal surface area of the chimney heats the water very quickly. When the water boils, hold the Handle at an angle of 90° to the Kettle - then lift the Kettle clear of the base.

To pour, lift it by the handle and tilt it using the cork or rubber stopper chain.

If additional water is required, simply refill the kettle with water and place it back on the base when the fire is still burning. Refill the chimney with fuel and you can look forward to a second kettle full of boiling water within a matter of minutes. Our kettles work in even the most extreme weather conditions - in fact, they work better in wind so there is no need to find shelter when brewing up!

Our Fabulous Kelly Kettles

The Kelly family in Ireland pioneered the development of the Kelly Kettle and now, for over 100 years, the unique Kelly Kettle has made boiling water in the outdoors quick and easy even in extreme weather conditions. Any natural fuel can be used to burn and create the fire which will quickly bring the water in the kettle to a roiling boil. Since only natural fuel is used you don’t have to worry about carrying gas or batteries or other types of fuel with you. Safe and easy to use, the Kelly Kettle will be one of your most used and valued pieces of camping gear.

Our Kelly Kettles have become popular for a variety of reasons with different groups of outdoor enthusiasts.

  • Camping: If you are camping and just want a convenient quick way to heat up your water for hydrating food, a cup of coffee or for personal use, the Base Camp Large Kelly Kettle is great. It will deliver about 7 cups of hot water in just a few minutes. Your camping gear will not be complete without a Kelly Kettle.
  • Back Packing and Hiking: Backpackers and hikers love the Trekker Small Kelly Kettle for its light weight and natural fuel burning ability. Never worry about carrying heavy fuel in your backpack again. The Trekker Kettle holds a little over 2 cups of water which is enough to hydrate your dehydrated evening meal and extra for a cup of hot chocolate or coffee. You will never go on a backpacking trip again without your Trekker Kelly Kettle.
  • Kayaking:Kayaking is another outdoor sport where you don’t want to have to carry any more than necessary. Once again, the Trekker Kelly Kettle is ideal because of its light weight, use of natural fuel and how fast it will boil water when you are exhausted from kayaking all day.
  • Scouts:Scouting is a terrific youth activity and what better way to teach scouts how to camp, cook and purify water than to teach them how to use the Kelly Kettle. The Base Camp Large Kettle and the Scout Medium Kettle are both perfect for scouting activities, competitions and campouts. A scout troop with kettles for each patrol is well set up to provide purified water for use in cooking and personal hygiene for each member of the patrol. -- Not that scouts necessarily worry about the later but at least they have the option.
  • Fishing and Hunting:The Kelly Kettle was created to quickly produce hot water for coffee and other hot drinks while fishing on the beautiful lakes of Ireland. The same is still true today. All three sizes of kettles are well suited for the fisherman or hunter depending on the size of the group and whether you are backpacking into a remote area to catch the big fish or bag the trophy deer or elk or just setting up camp for a leisurely outing.
  • Emergency Preparedness and Survival Use:The Kelly Kettles are an essential element of any emergency preparedness plan since in an emergency or disaster situation the most important part of survival is being able to obtain pure water. Without access to other types of fuel such as gas or propane, it may be difficult to get pure water. Since the Kelly Kettle uses only natural fuels, in a disaster you most likely will still have access to ample natural fuel in order to boil and purify water for drinking, cooking and personal hygiene.
The Kelly Kettles are available in three (3) sizes made from aluminum or stainless steel.
  • Base Camp Large Kettle: This kettle holds 54 oz or about 7 cups of water and comes in aluminum or stainless steel.
  • Scout Medium Kettle: This kettle holds 44 oz or about 5 ½ cups and is available in aluminum or stainless steel.
  • Trekker Small Kettle: This kettle holds 17oz or about 2 cups and is available in aluminum and stainless steel.
  • Also available for use with the Kettles is the Cook Set made of stainless steel. This accessory is great for heating food over the top of the kettle and for cooking some foods over the fire in the base.
