Ghillie Stove

Posted by Geof Stephens on July 21, 2012 at 3:50 PM

I recently heard of a kettle that seems pretty cool. It’s called a Ghillie Kettle.

The website is http://ghilliekettleusa.com/ if you want to go see it or order one for yourself.

I haven’t had the chance to use one yet myself, but I want to. Even still, I want to throw out my impressions of it.

First, what is it?

A tea kettle with a hole that goes up the middle. The water basically goes all around the chimney and can be poured out the spout. It comes with a base. So, you fill the base with tinder and get a little fire going, then put the kettle on the base. The chimney helps to get the little fire going, and l

ets you add more twigs and sticks to keep it up. After a few minutes, the water is boiling and can be used for whatever you want.

We all know the value of purifying water. And, what better way to accomplish that than to boil it. You kill just about anything that can hurt you when you boil the water. Plus, it just tastes better.

The base can also be used as a small stove. The Adventure Kit comes with a pan and a little grill, so you can cook up something small.

The entire thing weighs about a pound and is about the size of a 2 liter bottle.

So, here is my initial impression of it. Essential.

This should be in a regular camping kit as well as an emergency kit. The ability to boil water when there is no reliable clean source of water is life-saving. It weighs very little and doesn’t take too much space, so you shouldn’t have too much trouble fitting it in. The cost seems a bit high, but this is a high quality aluminum kettle, and could be the difference between living and not living.

It comes in various sizes, from 1 pint to 1.5 liter (no idea why they use two different measurement standards), and ranges in price from $54.99 to $149.99. You can get them in regular aluminum or anodized aluminum, and they come with a little bag to keep the various pieces together.

Despite the site name, GhillieKettleUSA.com, this is not made in the US. The site very clearly states “Made in the UK, where other kettles are made”. The other kettles are called Kelly Kettles, and aren’t as good. The key difference is that the Ghillie has a whistling cap to let you know when the water is boiling, and the Kelly’s have a cork that should be removed before putting it on the heat. No word on the cost of a Kelly, if you wanted to go there.
