Congratulations to the winner of our summer competition, Andrew Alexander from Wiltshire in England. Andrew has won an amazing Kelly Kettle Basecamp Kit. Enjoy this great piece of kit Andrew.
The Kelly Kettle Hobo Stove is made from stainless steel. Like the Kettle itself, it works in all weather conditions and can use any type of solid fuel–twigs, pine cones, etc. The Hobo Stove weighs 6 ounces, and has a pot support measuring just over 5 inches wide.
All together, the Kelly Kettle and all accessories weigh 3 pounds, 12 ounces, so it’s not really something you’d take on an extended backpacking trip. But for a situation where you have a base camp, or for off-grid cooking in a small space with minimal fuel, it works wonderfully.
The Hobo Stove is a perfect addition to the Kelly Kettle, especially since it doesn’t take up any extra room in the carrying bag. Combining all three pieces together (the Kelly Kettle, cook stand and Hobo Stove) gives you the ability to cook just about anything in all weather conditions using just a handful of fuel.
