Kelly Kettle

I wasn't sure what topic to put this in and made a search and found no other post about it. Thought I would pass this on to anyone interested. This Kettle originated in Ireland but they now have a US website. Please check it out if you haven't already. Let me know what you think!

I have the smaller aluminum unit in my gear and it's great for getting water on the boil in a very short time. As the video from the company illustrates, you pour your water into the chimney tank, prep your fire and tinder, put the 'chimney' part on the burner base, dump in some short sticks, pine cones, etc and fire it up. And if you get one, pick it up off the fire EXACTLY like the man shows, using both hands holding the handle bail horizontally to the unit until it's clear of the fire. The chimney effect will scorch the hair right off your hand if you try picking it up like a bucket. After you have it off the fire, it's safe to pick it up bucket style and use the cork chain to tilt it for pouring hot water.
Several models to chose from. http://astore.amazon.com/survurbacris-20?node=48&page=5
The larger sizes would be good for a base camp situation or family camping before the SHTF. The small unit fits into a larger bug out bag, say for a typical size backpack, but not very well in a 3 day emergency pack. The units also have a cook set available that will perch at the top of the chimney, and 'grill out' after the water tank is off the fire.

Best thing I've ever seen is the Original Swiss Ranger Volcano Set. It is made of lightweight aluminum (15 oz) and contains an insulated bottle with a cork lid, winged handle canteen cup, and a winged handled vented stove. You only need to add a fuel source like Trioxane or Wetfire Tender and you got heat and warm water, soup, etc. They cost less than 10 bucks and the best investment I ever made. Add to that a Folding stove that you can find in most sporting good stores, and even Walmart and you are set. BTW check out Cheaper Than Dirt on Google. I buy all my ammo and lots of other things from them. They are fast and ready to help. Bought some .45 ACP ammo from them and was 50% cheaper than Cabelos, Bass Pro.

I have that Ranger Volcano set and for the money is hard to beat.However its much different than the Kelley Kettle, if making a comparison.
