This is an interesting list of kettles on the market compiled by a member over at bushcraftusa. Be sure to click on the chart to view the contents and nice work he did on compiling the info.

Deciding on a "Volcano Kettle"? - Specification comparison chart

Hi everyone.

I am thinking of getting myself a Kelly Kettle, in part because I have a Cabellas gift card from Christmas, and my wife heard that Cabellas now carries the Med Kelly Kettle. I'm still not sure, if it's in Canada, but I started my shopping research to help decide if this was the best model for me.

Here is a sheet of the various models I could find online, and their specs. I could not really find any specs for the last two.

If anyone has suggestions to make this chart more complete, please bring them on, thanks.

Hoping this helps with your "volcano stove" shopping.

(Updated June 2013 to include Boiilerwerks and Outbound kettles)

Bought a Kelly Kettle SS today.
On YouTube I watched your video on modifications that seem to improve use. If possible, please list materials used for the cage for burning wood, the damper & the soot cover. Also to construct the pieces

I love my K Kettles :D

Cage material is stainless steel 1/2" mesh, holes are 1/2" square. material available at "graingers" or

Damper is the top of a stainless steel salt shaker purchased at the Super Dollar store.

Cut mesh with sheet metal shear and the damper use a heavy duty hole punch to form the large hole by punching a bunch of small holes in a ring formation in the center of the shaker lid.

Glad to have you here at bplite.com :D

I'll be using my large kettle next week while camping. I'll also be using my larger kettle. Lots of family going camping at an anual Halloween camp-out.....fun will be had by all :DB:

Kelly Kettles....................always nice to have the big stainless steel one for car camping/fishing. While heating water you can cook the fish on top using the cross bar pan support. Cast iron fry pans are best for even heat ;)

There is an article in the latest issue of The Backwoodsman, about the history and operation of the Kelly Kettle. The Kettle is getting more publicity in the USA ;)
