A highly efficient piece of camping equipment which is suitable for Trekkers, Hikers, Kayakers, Backpackers, Bikers, and all outdoors enthusiasts who need to keep their pack light. Also suitable for Car Camping and a Wilderness Survival Kit or Disaster Kit.
This lightweight kettle fits neatly into a Rucksack or Backpack. As there is no need to carry fuel, these kettles will keep your pack light and save you money at the same time - never worry about running out of fuel again! Using any naturally occurring solid fuel (sticks, pine cones, dry camel dung! etc.) this kettle will operate perfectly well, even in strong winds / storm and will bring 2 Mugs of water to a rolling boil within a matter of minutes.
If more hot water is required (this kettle will easily boil water quickly for a party of 4-6 people), simply refill the kettle and place it back on the fire base and re-fuel the chimney again. The kettle will be boiled again within a matter of minutes where water can be used for more hot drinks, boil-in-the-bag, bathing, washing up, etc.
I recently purchased this marvellous piece of kit. No more need to carry about fuel in the form of gas canisters or mess about with spirit cookers.
This compact water-heating and food cooker is just the job for short excursions - over-night stays in the country or camping/picnics etc.
It burns practically anything - I tried pine cones, sticks and even dry japanese knotweed dry stems. The draft through the chimney draws the heat in the base up through the chimney, heating the water in the water-jacket and at the same time you can heat your food on the top using the accessories - pot, pan or remove the kettle part once water is hot and use the 'fire-base' with a grill over it.
The water heats very quickly and once you get used to using it, you can keep a constant supply of hot water flowing by regulating the amount of fuel you burn.
Great piece of kit - 10/10
