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 KettleĀ®
The Kelly KettleĀ® 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 ā flat side down.
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)
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).
When the water boils, hold the handle at a 90Ā° angle to the body of the
Kettle ā 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!
- Always remove the cork before lighting the kettle. The cork is only to be used for transporting cold water.
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 KettleĀ® works
The Kelly KettleĀ® Volcano
KettleĀ® 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.
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 90Ā° 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.
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!
