The Kelly Kettle Base Camp is a fast outdoor kettle. It stands out in terms of speed, and because of the limited amount of fuel it needs. A couple hands full of branches, dry grass, pine cones or other fuel is enough to boil 1.6 litres of water in mere minutes. Great when you are out camping, fishing or hiking, but also in your backyard when you want to experience that real outdoor feeling.
The Kelly Kettle is so fast because the water reservoir is positioned around the hot chimney. As such the contact surface is pretty large and the transmission of heat very efficient.
You use the Kettle Kettle by adding combustible material to the fire base. Make sure that the ventilation hole is pointed in the direction of the wind to make sure your small campfire will rapidly be exposed to oxygen. Light it up and place the filled Kelly Kettle on top of the fire base. Because of the chimney and the ventilation hole in the fire base this stove will suck in the air by itself. Like the famous rocket stoves. As such combustion is incredibly efficient and very hot. It is very important not to insert the rubber plug in the Kelly kettle while you use it.
Within minutes, depending on the quality of the fuel and the fire, the water will start to boil. Subsequently you can use the lid to lift it from the fire base. By pulling the chain on the plug you can tilt the kettle to pour out the boiling water. However, be careful while doing so.
This Base Camp edition of the Kelly Kettle can be filled with 1.6 litres of water. In terms of material a decent and sustainable type of stainless steel was chosen. At first this might look like a heavy option, but with a total weight (kettle and fire base) of 1200 grams it is not that heavy at all. Practical is the fact that you can turn the fire base upside down and store it in the kettle to save room. A simple carrier bag is included with the Kelly Kettle.
This version of the Kelly Kettle has been assembled by means of laser welding, and not, like its predecessors put together with rivets.

About the Kelly Kettle Base Camp
The Kelly Kettle Base Camp stainless steel camp kettle boils approximately 54 oz of water at a time – that’s nine 6 oz. mugs of water for camp coffee, tea or hot cocoa. The Kettle will bring water to a boil within a matter of minutes. Suitable for use at your ‘base camp’, car camping, scout camps, picnics, hunting, outfitters outposts. The kettles are ideal for emergency preparedness kits, humanitarian aid stations, or anyone working in the forests or the great outdoors.
Fire base and drawstring carrying bag are included with each Kelly Kettle. The durable stainless steel fire base inverts up into the bottom of the kettle to make the unit as compact as possible for transport and storage.
The Green Whistle will sound a nice loud whistle to let you know when the water has boiled. Older Kelly 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, but the new camping kettle with whistle can be left in while the water is boiling.
