Stainless Steel Kelly Kettle

Postby zelph » Wed Sep 29, 2010 10:27 pm

The modification I made were to add a flu damper in the shape of stainless steel cap to reduce the chimneys' opening. I can then eliminate the steel base that comes with the stove and prop the kettle up on one side with a 3/4" twig to allow air to enter. The wood is contained in the super efficient Woodgaz stove. I can boil 6 cups of water with one load of fuel. It's vertical stacked and top lit. I really like the combination of Woodgaz and Kelly Kettle. Great for car camping and emergency preparedness. A small Kettle and a mini Woodgaz should be able to compare to a Caldera Cone easily. Probably more efficient also.

Eggs, I like eggs :D

I ordered the pot support for the kettle ($9.00 + 2 shipping) should arrive this week. While the 3 pints of water are heating I'll be able to boil at least 4 eggs on top in a Kmart Grease pot. Somewhere in my garage of stuff there is a heat diffuser that I made for alcohol stoves that should work just great to give me the ability to fry egs with no problems using a Teflon pan. This Kelly kettle gets better as it goes along.

I did a quick test today using the Fancee Feest with 3 ounces of fuel. It was 15 degrees in the greenhouse, water temp was at 35, kettle was at 15 when I poured the water into it. 6 cups in the kettle and 4 on top in a Kmart grease pot.

3 ounces of denatured boiled 10 cups of water and continued to burn for an additional 45 seconds.

The Kelly Kettle is an awesome set-up. I can't wait till I get the Stainless "Trekker" size to experiment with it.

I would never consider a Caldera Cone now that I've tried the kettle. :o

I am starting to take the Kelly Kettle seriously.

I just couldn't see what all the fuss was about, but this is "looking good".

I'm holding out for one of Devin Montgomery's kettles and enough of an income to buy one, since it's basically a light version of this kettle that Zelph's having so much fun with. If it turns out that there's a way to put a pot stand on top of Devin's kettle, it will be sweet! Otherwise, I might have to get a Kelly Kettle for car camping some day :)

Kelly Kettle U.S.A is suppose to be coming out with a trekker size(smallest) stainless kettle early this year. I'm going to get one of those for back packin. I don't care how much it weighs. It's going to be my kinda rugged, no melt as in "Supper Kettle" :D

I'd still like to see a wide mouth version(with a full lid but still have a smaller spout)that I could dual purpose as a bear/crittercan.. :mrgreen: just strap it on the pack by a bail.it would be nice to use the cooking space inside for other purposes...when you aren't using it..since it doesn't collapse.Still haven't found one at a thrift store here..but I'm lookin'. ;)
