    I have had a brew from one of these kettles on a number of occasions, curtesy of tom Riorden. Very nice it is as well.
    He brings one to the Ribble fish ins, I love to see the steam comeing out of them when they are on the boil.
    I'll give Tom a ring and see if he can give some more info on their uses.

    I first came across these kettles many years ago in Ireland.

    They would be gret in the African bush where gas and other fuels would be a problem.

    I have one of these and I love it to bits. It boils in no time, weighs next to nothing and you never have to worry about fuel. I also get to enjoy my pyromania whilst making tea. Perfick!

    What about "no fires allowed" rules?

    It's only the same flame as a primus stove type, and they aren't banned.You don't see the flame anyway.
    I don't know if the boiled water smells of smoke or not, but if it does, drop a matchstick in as this takes the smoke away.

    I can recomend these, I have used mine for over 6years, day in and day out,as I take it with me to work and it is a good as the first day I bought it. Screw up a bit of paper bung in some dead grass a few twigs and you will have a kettle of boiling water in minutes. Tip I buy a bundle of firewood from my local garage and chop it down to kindling, you get a higher faster burn without the smoke. The way the kettle is designed you dont get any smoke in your water so there is no problems with a smoky taste, I also chuck a bit of charcoal in the fire and then I can also cook over the base of the kettle, you can get the frying pan and saucepan to fit the base. If you want lightweight fast boils there are plenty of gear on the market, but if you can chill out and relax when you are fishing the kettle is a nice thing to have around, plus you can warm your hands while you are waiting for the kettle to boil. Keeps the mossies away in summer if you burn a bit of dried up grass or dead reeds. Grahams write up say it all really, and I would give it 10/10, because it does what it says on the box.

    My 'kelly' is a bit battered and very black but still makes a smashing cuppa and makes for a brilliant day out in the winter especially if you've got some fruit cake to go with the tea; sod the fishing!

    My 'Kelly' came courtesy of Waterlog...it's great!... At night, The Volcano, as Mr Yates calls it, is an incredible sight, with a flame jetting-up best part of three feet!

    instead of bringing paper just use plastic coated fire lighters in the kettle. i throw 4 into the kettle and use one at a time never fails.great because it is always raining in ireland when your fishing.boils 2.5 kettle in less than five minutes.
