Kelly the Kettle.


My Kelly Kettle arrived today. It’s fab!

I’m not really into cooking outdoors unless I have to, but I do want to be able to boil water for Tea (and to purify it). I looked at loads of different cookers and stoves etc., and good as they are they all have one common downside. They all need fuel. I don’t want to have a decent cooker but no meths, or gas, or whatever. I saw these kettles, also called storm kettles, in a shooting magazine ages ago and thought ‘what a good idea’.

No-where in Melbourne stocks these, so I got one direct fro Patrick Kelly himself in Ireland. Shipped to my door with the optional cooking pots (‘cos you never know!). It was late and raining but you know how it is with new toys, I just had to try it. I also didn’t want to travel with a virgin kettle, that just wouldn’t do now would it? It took a while to get the fire built, but from lighting to boiling was 3 minutes. Now that’s impressive!

Tea anyone?

About Sophie Whiptank - aka Bart

I'm just a bloke doing some stuff, the more interesting bits I post on my blog. Scroll down far enough and you'll see me riding from Melbourne Australia to Birmingham, England in 2014. But now I'm working on another project, a single cylinder motorbike engine at 2750cc!
