Fire Base & Drawstring carrying bag are included as standard with each Kelly Kettle. The durable steel fire base inverts up into the bottom of our kettles to make the unit as compact as possible for transport and storage.

This Kelly Kettle boils approximately 9 x 6 oz. Mugs of water at a time and is the size traditionally used by Irish Anglers. Suitable for Base Camps, Car Camping, Scout Camps, Picnics, Hunters, Outfitters Outposts, Emergency Preparedness Kits, Humanitarian Aid Stations, or anyone working in the Forests or the Great Outdoors.

A popular Green Whistle has replaced the Orange stopper on this Kettle and will let you know when the water has boiled.  

Strong with nothing to fail or break, our kettles work extremely well in both good and harsh weather conditions.  They are a vital piece of camping equipment for any outdoor person. Using whatever natural fuel is lying around (twigs, dry grass, heather, Birch bark, Pine cones, dry animal dung, etc) our kettles will bring water to the boil within a matter of minutes. Never carry fuel again.

Our kettles are cost-FREE to run, eco-friendly as they operate on carbon neutral fuels, and are great fun to use. Note: Add our Pot-Support & Cook set to prepare small amounts of food (Noodles, Rice, Oatmeal, hydrate food, etc) over the kettle while your water boils. Boil and cook at the same time using only a handful of fuel!

Better still, add our Hobo Stove accessory to turn the fire base of your kettle into a stand-alone wood fueled Camping Stove.
See our Accessories Category for these products. 

Please note: The Kettle has been designed to boil water extremely fast in all weather conditions using very little fuel. When filled with water, the Kelly Kettle should always be carried upright to avoid any spillage/leakage from the water spout or chimney top.

Older 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.  

Kelly Kettle users have described their kettles as the "Greatest Invention of all Time".

This will make my 3 days with out help much easier to cope with. I did put together a kit so we could be comfortable if the worst happened. I also will be able to camp with hot water anywhere in the Pacific NW. There is dry wood limbs and cones anywhere you look. No more packing can or bottles of fuel. I did get the big one with add on's to cook with too. Review by Robert Lee Anderson (Posted on 1/30/2018)

I decided I wanted to write about our top 10 favorite pieces of camping gear. Mark thought
I was nuts. He loves his gear, all of it, and has far more than 10 things. I made him choose 10 anyway. Our Kelly Kettle ranks right up there in the top 10, of the things we love most.

have the largest one but it's easy to carry compared to other methods of cooking boiling water or just to get some heat. I intend to get another couple and will also try the smaller version and another large one. Thanks for making them available. Review by John E. (Posted on 11/13/2017)

My situations are varied but the need is the same, hot water & a meal wherever I am. I chose the Kelly Kettle Base Camp in Stainless Steel for its robustness together with the hobo stove & pots. It's chucked into a campfire on Scout camps, taken on canoe trips and used for six weeks solid boiling water for washing up during the summer. It's large & heavier than a tiny gas stove so it doesn't come on hikes up Snowdon but when I take it on canoe trips or 'base camps' it has paid for itself many times over because I just grab a bunch of twigs and I am not using up expensive gas.

I purchased my kettle to keep in my truck while out on the trapline. THIS THING IS AWESOME!!! Nothing better than a nice hot lunch and hot coffee while out in the cold. Hot coffee within 15 minutes. This is one piece of equipment I will never be without! Review by Trapper (Posted on 11/2/2017)

I have had a kelly kettle for about 6 years now, ever since i saw one advertisement I was hooked.

Over 6 years this kettle has been on 5, 10 day remote canoe trips,... and a couple dozen long weekend canoe trips. It's great for group trips where everyone wants coffee in the morning quickly,.. we just keep the kettle going for a good half an hour and everyone can get their 2-3 cups of coffee in without waiting a ridiculous amount of time for water to boil, this also avoids using up precious and heavy gas cartridges. I usually don't take this kettle backpacking, but i always miss it!
Customer service is top notch if you have a problem with any components or replacement parts.

Love my Kelly Kettle!

We have the Stainless Steel Base Camp Kelly Kettle, it's been in constant use for the last four years, the sheer pleasure in any kind of weather in using this bit of kit is priceless.
We keep a small jar full of used / dried tea bags soaking in meths drop a soaked tea bag into the fire bucket add a spark, 100% instant fire just add twigs etc.
We're just about to get the Hobbo Stove that sits on the fire bucket.
Well done Kelly Kettle on a brilliant bit of kit

The Kelly Kettle Basecamp in the Stainless Steel Version is very nice. It is very easy to handle and has a very good Quality. I used the Base Camp on Fishing Trips and Outdoor Trips. You can nearly everywhere use the BaseCamp and the process to boil water is very fast. In comparison with a Gas Cooker the Kettle BaseCamp were much faster. Thumbs Up for the Kelly Kettle BaseCamp.

I was thoroughly impressed by the fact that I can boil a full kettle with two pages of newspaper or four envelopes. Unfortunately, I don't get to go camping much, since my lovely wife doesn't care for it, but that is something that has impressed me. Every once in a while I get a 'wild hair' and decide I need to try using the kettle again. I have one of your stainless steel kettles, and that thing is fantastic. On the positive, we've been Blessed with a little boy, and I suspect camping will once again be an option as he gets older.

I've been using my base camp kettle in the Malaysian jungles and camping on tropical islands for about 5 years.

I've been using my base camp kettle in the Malaysian jungles and camping on tropical islands for about 5 years. Not much chance of bringing in or sourcing commercial fuels easily plus all the weight involved considering that we need to boil up from various water sources 6-8 litres each per day as well as the inconvenience and time in building fires and keeping them going.
Getting the kettle really changed the dynamics of logistics! Conversely, the shape and build of the kettle also allows the boiled water to cool down quickly to fill up canteens, especially since it can be easily immersed in a water source. With the new accessories, it keeps getting better (I had to hold the pan over the chimney before the pot support came out) and the hobo stove completes it.
Plus factor - kids get to use the left over embers in the base to polish off a break with toasted marshmallows, which don't burn, as a bribe!

Despite the size, the kettle is a better pack item.

We often take others on our little outings and they are always impressed with what can be done with the (Kelly) Kettle. The biggest selling feature is the low environmental impact it has. We usually gather lichen, birch bark, horseshoe fungus and twigs along the path and very little is left after cooking the meal - most of which can be safely extinguished with the water in the kettle. Great product!

For years we took little camp stoves with us and occasionally either lost knuckle hair lighting them or soaked the odd pack with the fluid. Despite the size, the kettle is a better pack item.

I live near the Rockies in BC.
Day trips, week trips, backpacking, 4x4ing, anything back country.
Fast, and simple. Boil water fast, cool it down fast for your canteen, or washing. Great combination with the Hobo stove and pot support. Easy, fast cleanup and storage.
Heat your water, while prepping your freeze dried food. So simple, so efficient.
The envy of my friends.

Comment: Dear All, my new Kelly-kettle and its hobo stove arrives bang on time, via a great e-mail support. The kettle looks great its just how it performs, a S/Steel version slightly heavier than I'm used to but that will walk in, but not today its pouring and blowing a hooulie terrible weather. Packaging awesome very good indeed

best regards
Gerry Curran.
