The storm kettle was traditionally used by Irish crofters in the early 1900s. They were originally tooled by hand and made of copper. In the early 1970s these effective water boilers were manufactured in aluminium and introduced to outdoor enthusiasts worldwide.
The 'storm kettle' is an efficient, portable device for boiling water outdoors using twigs and other natural combustible materials.
The kettle consists of a water jacket surrounding a shielded fire chamber which creates an upward chimney draft ensuring efficient and rapid boiling even in wet and windy conditions.
