Survival Camp Stove: The Kelly Kettle

The Kelly Kettle is an efficient, portable, light camp stove for boiling water or heating food in the outdoors. It’s smart design ensures that you get maximum efficiency to boil water quickly, even in windy conditions. All in all, the Kelly Kettle is a great survival camp stove for you to carry in your bugout bag, or to store at your bugout location.

More details about the Kelly Kettle, and Introducing Jake!

As you know, the Snoman is currently working on his newest project, which happens to be a movie. Naturally, this takes up a lot of his time, but he still wanted to provide content for Survival News Online. So, he decided to hand over part of the job to me.

In this video, I’ll be demonstrating the use of Snoman’s newly-acquired Kelly Kettle. The model shown is the Trekker model in stainless steel.

The Kelly Kettle set consists of a main kettle for boiling water, a small pot with a lid, a fire-pan for (you guessed it) the fire, a grate that fits on the fire-pan, a handy grabber thingy, and a rack that goes on top of the kettle. In the video, I’ll demonstrate the clever design of the Kelly Kettle that allows you to boil water while simultaneously heating up something in the pot.

So, as you saw in the video, the Kelly Kettle is basically a small, light camp stove with an ingenious design. If you get the smallest model (the Trekker), it’s perfect for hiking or backpacking. Granted, it’s not for ultra-light hikers, but if you’re willing to carry a little more weight, then you won’t regret it.


Great features of the Kelly Kettle

The Kelly Kettle has been around for nearly a century, and its designed has been refined almost to an art. It has awesome features:

  • Chimney design makes it very efficient, so you only need a small amount of fuel
  • Boils 0.7 liters in about 3 minutes
  • Can boil water and cook a meal in the pot at the same time
  • Light, compact, and durable
  • Materials and build are top-quality

Anyway, this is my first video, but many more are on the way soon!

    Grate job Jake;
    After that review Kelly Kettle sales should go through the roof.
    Jake. Can you do a video on the global sun oven?

    Excellent video,
    That stove is very versatile with a surprisingly quick boil time.
    Although I am one to go a bit smaller, another stove worth checking out would be the MSR Whisperlite International.
    Even though it is a liquid fuel stove its ability to run on white gas, kerosene and unleaded gasoline make it ideal for adventures above the tree line. Maybe even a Bug Out on foot through an urban zone.
    Just an alternative if you aren't against carrying your own fuel.
    I will have to look into that sun oven a bit more.

    !I'll buy that. Useful.

    That is perfect for the camping season this spring. From the material composition, this is a good insulator to get instant hot water. It also helps insures clean water from its boiling capacity.
