First used over a century ago by Irish gypsies and Irish fishermen, a Kelly Kettle will boil water in just a few minutes, depending on the fuel.
Made from aluminum, it is essentially a double-walled chimney with the water contained in the chimney's double wall. Fill the kettle with water, start a very small fire in the base, set the kettle on the base and drop additional fuel (twigs, leaves, grass, twists of paper, etc.) down the chimney. The large internal chimney surface area heats the water very quickly.
To pour, lift it by the handle and tilt it using the cork chain. Warning: Never boil water with the cork in. Please click on Instructions link below for additional safety measures.
The small kettle measures about 10-1/2" tall by 5-5/8" in diameter, has a 20 oz capacity and weighs 1.2 lb. The large kettle measures about 13" tall by 7-1/4" in diameter, has a 50 oz capacity and weighs 2.1 lb.
Instructions and carrying bag included. Excellent for trekking, picnics or emergencies.
Made in Ireland.
