I got myself one of these Storm Kettle's from Greensports(R669)
http://www.eydonkettle.com/
You can use twigs,grass, paper etc.I tested it on a gas stove and it worked quite well.Actually the standard kettle boiled quicker on the gas.
It also fits nicely in a ammo box
Now to test it properly in the veld :dance1:

I think the price goes hand in hand with the manufacture / design of the unit.

Can't be that simple.....

Bigger flame = quick result

Small flame like gas stove (7cm) will take a little longer me thinks :wink2:

Now I sommer lus vir 'n BRANDY.

I didnt realy buy it to save time.It is probably more of a novelty. Gas is just so boring when you are camping. Especially early in the morning if you want you first cuppa.Instead of building a big fire(which is probably the right thing to do) you just make your small fire in the kettle. :dance1: Just give the coffee more soul :lol:

Ok so i tested the kettle today with a bit of wood.Really impressed.It took 3,5 minutes to boil 1,2 lt of water.To me it is not about the time thing,i just love to make fire. :twisted:
This was also my first time that I made fire with that flint sticks you get.i used cotton balls rubbed with vaseline for tinder. :shifty: (Waars Thys en Niel)
