What are Kelly Kettles?
Kelly Kettles are the original carbon-neutral volcano kettle. The design is simple, yet highly effective at boiling water rapidly, using only natural fuels, such as leaves, pinecones, twigs and any other natural source of kindling. Kelly Kettles offer several different sizes and designs. Kelly kettles are popular amongst scouts, fishermen and campers, so if you're looking for a bushcraft kettle, a volcano kettle for trekking or just an eco-friendly campfire kettle, then look no further than the original and the best outdoor fire-fuelled kettle by Kelly Kettles.

How to Use a Kettle?
- Remove the kettle from the base and fill with water.
- Put some tinder into the base of the kettle and light. We tend to carry a fire steel, which is a very good way of lighting a fire without matches or a lighter.
- When the tinder is lit, put the kettle back onto the base and quickly feed the fire with twigs, dry leaves, or whatever other materials you have at hand, by dropping them through the chimney. When we are in a woodland we find that the side branches of conifer trees work very well in the Kelly kettle as they are brittle and full of resin so catch light quickly, even in wet weather.
- The water should boil quickly and then you can have yourself a nice cup of tea!
