A Ghillie kettle is a traditional "volcano" kettle first made in Ireland in the 1800s. It's a cylinder filled with fire, with water stored between the double walls around it. Light the fire, wait just a few minutes for the whistle - and you are drinking a cup of hot tea, anywhere, on your own terms. The base of the kettle can also be used as a small cook stove.
Please note: the triangular wire base for extra support is not included with the kit. It will be available as an optional accessory in the Summer.
"HARD ANODISING" EXPLAINED
Anodisation is primarily used to toughen up the outer shell of the aluminium and is also an easy way to add color to your piece. What the process actually does is creates a aluminium hydroxide layer on the surface of the metal. After the process is complete the aluminium is no longer susceptible to nicks and scratches to the surfaces because the pores of the metal have tightened up creating a harder surface.
The Result of Hard Anodising is that you get a thicker stronger coating which is approximately 2-4 times stronger than the normal Anodising process. It's as close as you can get to titanium while still using an easily machinable aluminium and stronger than stainless steel, with the added benefits of being lighter (a necessity when camping or travelling long distances) boiling water quicker and, importantly, unlike stainless steel, it won't rust!
In addition to being scratch resistant the kettle is easier to clean and has all of the benefits of stainless steel but is cheaper and much lighter. It also has a smooth non-stick, non-reactive surface and is quicker to boil, heat food, and clean. The kettle is guaranteed for 10 years, subject to normal wear and tear Boil approximately 3.5 mugs of water in minutes
