User Review: Primus Litech Coffee/Tea Kettle
Price Paid: Can't remember
I've had one of these for several years now and I like it.
Number one the shape. Because it is real flat it fits in the pack well. The flat bottom is great for catching all the heat from a stove. A pepsi can stove will fit inside it.
The main drawbacks to it is the capacity which is low, and when it starts to boil water starts coming out of it if you fill it pretty much up to the top. I guess that comes with the size.
I like to use this on solo hikes or when my wife and I are backpacking, leaving it at home when cooking for 3 or more people in favor of larger things.
A lot of times if you've hiked a long way and are really bushed when stopping for the evening I can prop it up on some rocks and build a stick fire or stick the alcohol stove under there and make some tea to get me up to make camp and get a campfire going.
