Aluminum Scout Medium Kelly Kettle

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Fun to use, lightweight, no need to burn precious fuel to boil water, heats up fast. You can get a complete set with attachments, cups, pot/pan and holder. You have to use a little common sense using this product. Pic: First time I used my Kelly Kettle, I just couldn't wait! Below: In use at camp. Setting up is easy. You pop some water in the kettle (remove the plug, don't use the plug when boiling—I added this because I saw a YouTube of a guy with the plug in while he was boiling water...), make… Full review

Aluminum Base Camp Large Kelly Kettle

rated 3 of 5 stars This product is fantastic at what it is supposed to do, but be wary of the durability. The aluminum can bend and make the product unusable without hammering it back into place. Everything about the Kelly Kettle is easy to use, and it's great for anyone who needs to boil water quickly without packing fuel. I've used it several times over the last year with no problems. However, I recently packed it into a checked bag (for the first time) for a trip to South America, and when I brought it out the… Full review

Aluminum Scout Medium Kelly Kettle

rated 5 of 5 stars This is an awesome way to heat water. I have used this with all sorts of twigs and sticks found around camp. No need to carry fuel. It can be a small challenge to light so I use cotton balls and occasionally a little vaseline. I store the cotton balls inside the kettle when not in use. It is bulkier than a campstove but you'll never run out of fuel. The Kelly Kettle is for heating water period. There are cook top attachments but they can be cumbersome due to the design. But if all you need is hot… Full review

Stainless Steel Scout

rated 4 of 5 stars Boils 1.1L of water in minutes, uses just kindling and very small sticks. Kit comes with a stand for the top and pot to heat food. Great for campsite cooking especially in winter. The kit is the perfect small system, ordered right from the company in England, cheaper than buying here with fast shipping for about $20. The Kelly Kettle is my new discovery and I love it! Great for canoeing and not a killer to portage with. Boils 1.1L of water for apple cider and hot water bottle then cleans up quick… Full review

Stainless Trekker Small Kelly Kettle

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great product! Easy to use with no need to pack fuel. I highly recommend one...and the quality is great. I used one of these on a biking trip, and it worked great! It boils water in a couple of minutes after you get a fire going and the fuel is all around you. I used pine cones when I had them, and would carry one along as a spare.  I also brought along these solid fuel tabs, and two will boil water on those rainy days or when you don't want any smoke...such as stealth camping.  It weighs 1.7… Full review
