No more hauling around pots and pans, and no need to spend a fortune of self-heating packets of food. Just un-stack one of these portable cooking sets, and away you go.
Ultimate Base Camp Kelly Kettle Kit
‘Everything you need for the true hobo lifestyle experience.’
The Kelly Kettle kit is way more than just a burner and a couple of pans. We’re seriously impressed by the range of high-quality cooking gear in this kit, which includes:
- 2.6L Kelly Kettle
- Fire Base
- Hobo Stove
- Cook Pot
- Small Camp Cup
- Large Camp Cup
- Cook Pot Lid
- 2 Plates
- Gripper, Grate and Pot Support
The cook pot is big enough to cook food for several people, and the 1.6L kettle is big enough to make tea and coffee for 4-6 people.
Size and weight
For all its features, the Kelly Kettle kit isn’t incredibly heavy, weighing in at 2.2kg. At 34cm (13in), the kettle itself is the largest part of the kit, and the whole thing comes in a durable Kelly Kettle branded bag. The main cooking pot has a capacity of around .85L, so not inconsiderable, and fine for the small, but calorie-rich foods you tend to cook when camping.
Materials and build
Often the problem with these multi-sets, is that their creators get so caught up in offering as many components as possible, that quality goes out the window. The Kelly Kettle Company prides itself on quality, and on building stuff that lasts. We certainly believe them, and the stainless steel finish is a real confidence booster. This kit will last for years.
There are novelties with the Kelly Kettle kit, everything works as it should, as you’d expect it to, standing up to harsh conditions, and not bending or flexing like cheaper sets might. The burner is a biomass burner, which is something we love. Burn twigs, wood and pinecones instead of gas or coal. No restrictions on travelling with the Kelly Kettle kit, either.
The durable carry bag opens with a simple drawstring, so you can pack up and pack out quickly and easily. We also love the mouth guards on the cups, which are there to stop you from burning your lips.
