The Kelly Kettle Giveaway: A Must Have For Your Prepper Gear

We are always on the lookout for great prepper gear. The word around town is that Kelly Kettles are gaining a lot of attention in the preppersphere.

A Kelly Kettle is ideal for off grid events, and are extremely fuel efficient, thus making it an ideal choice for bug out bags, camping or to use as an emergency cooking source.

Did you know the concept for the Kelly Kettle began in Ireland by an Irish Fisherman? Patrick Kelly needed a quick and simple way to boil water for hot drinks on cold, wet days and came up with the idea of the Kelly Kettle. Since then, it has became quite popular among fishermen, as well as avid outdoorsmen. With the outdoorsman in mind, the kettle fire is contained so it operates just as well in torrential weather (i.e., high winds, heavy rains, or deep snow) as it does in fair weather.

How It Works

This alternative cooking source is made of solid construction (stainless steel or aluminum), is extremely fuel efficient and uses only naturally occurring fuels such as sticks, pine cones, birch bark, dry grass, biomass briquettes, etc. It heats quickly due to the hollow-center chimney which is surrounded by a double-wall boiler and allows the user to have hot boiling water anytime and anywhere in a matter of minutes. The chimney sits on a base which houses a fire. Water is held in the chamber and as the heat from the firebase rises through the chimney, the water is brought to a boil.

To heat water in the Kelly Kettle:

Fill the firebase with tinder—combustible material, such as dry leaves and grass or newspaper—and add some kindling (small sticks, pine cones, etc) on top. Fill the chamber with water, place the kettle on top of the firebase and light the tinder through the hole in the base. Once the fire is lit, feed the fire by adding more kindling via the chimney. The kettle will boil water in just 3 – 5 minutes (large kettle).

Kelly Kettle products come in 4 basic sizes and are made of stainless steel or aluminum. Additionally, you can customize your order with added accessories such as mugs, cook sets and pot supports to use in cooking small amounts of food as well as boiling water with your kettle. These accessories are for the medium and large sized kettles.
