For that you need to see our film "Using a Fire Steel" and King Alfred's cake. This film is more about how to use the Kelly kettle.

Thanks for the comment

There are a few errors..one that is not safe..!! For anyone watching this pick up the kettle once boiled using the handle at 90° to the kettle housing so you dont burn your hand!! Also use some kindling. Sorry but very poor video this reason. Also its not a vacum hole its a draw hole.

when I was a kid,my mum would take me with her when picking on the farms in Sussex.Tea would be made in an open can over the fire,milk added at the end for colour,then everyones cups were filled from the can…Smoked tea,..the taste of childhood,..nothing like it.

The dents and deformation of the burn base show it is quite resilient. I had my base model (SS) out today and it took about 9 minutes to boil the water. However, I had overfilled it and water came splashing down and into the base and over the metal table on which the kettle was placed. The temperature was minus 19C, which is why I wanted to try it today.  It was quite impressive. I got it going with the fero rod, after my lighter proved to be empty, by shooting sparks onto thin birch bark bits. I fed it mostly cedar sticks from the top. The twigs were tamarack, which I broke off the bottom of a tree about 3 months ago. In my opinion it pays to use this stove occasionally while not in an emergency situation to build confidence in using it.
