Sweet kettle. Wide base provides for faster boil times and great stability. I stash the handle and the rest of a kit for two, not including canister, in the kettle. Cork in the spout reduces slop, improves capacity and keeps sharp edge of spout from cutting other items in or body of pack itself. GSI makes a 14oz nesting, lidded mug/bowl set that fits inside well. They don't sell it commonly, focusing on the 20oz set, but should be available when calling GSI Outdoors directly at 800.704.4474. Can also swap a 14oz mug/bowl from a smaller GSI set such as Micro Dualist into kettle for fast and light kit. A wide rubber band keeps the lid in place in transit. Great for boiling and re-hydrating. Not as uber-light as titanium or a beer can pot but use some common sense and this kettle is bomb proof.
Highly recommend this as well as GSI Ketalist to Boy Scouts or others new to the trail acquiring gear for backpacking.
This kettle was easily my best gear purchase of 2011! Overall, I am very happy with this product. I use the Ketalist primarily for boiling water or brewing up cowboy coffee over my Trangia stove, which nests neatly inside the kettle (along with the Trangia windscreen, a sea to summit collapsible cup, bandana/rag, and a few other small items). Having previously carried a small cookset, I was ready to trim a few ounces off my pack weight and this has served me very well. I removed the rubberized handle and lid grips as soon as I got it, so have no idea how they would have held up. I assume they would melt quite easily. Quick tip for those who care: Trim down a cork to fit the spout and your water will boil approx. 2 minutes faster!
This little tea kettle works great. It is just the right size for my wife and I yet small and lite enough for use to take it anywhere. Even when we go car camping with the rest of the family we will take it with a back packing stove with us. When we wake up in the morning we will put it on just outside of the tent and then start getting ready. By the time we are ready to leave the tent the water is boiling and ready for a hot cup of tea. Perfect for those cold mornings. It is also lite enough to take back packing and small enough to not take up to much valuable space.
I wasn't expecting much at this price, because usually you get what you pay for. Given that this is a inexpensive pot, I was expecting the equivalent in quality. I've couldn't have been more wrong. It is super light, the spout is incredible, and the handle is a must! We don't usually make tea in this, just boil water for mountain house. It is small, but somehow handles a full liter. The lid helps to boil water really fast. Overall, I couldn't be happier.
I know I can make tea in a pot but hey, I love tea and I wanted to show that love so I bought this cute little cattle. It is extremely lightweight, and the water boil instantly. 1 problem I encountered is that once I used it with a primus stove and the wind shield on max power the orange plastic of the handle melted and it's a shame - And nonetheless it gets 5 stars cause I just love tea
I have the nested soloist 'ketalist' kit and love it! Absolutely the best all around water boiler I've used, and a great system of cup/bowl. This kettle has elevated to 'instant replace' status should anything happen. My only wish is to have a whistling spout cover--it is a kettle after all.
This thing is fantastic! Bought it last year and it's been great. Very light, durable and with the added accessories very versatile. Cheaper than Titanium, but most all the benefits of the more expensive metal. I would buy it again and won't take a trip without it! Highly recommend it!
Perfect for making a couple cups of coffee,tea, broth, oatmeal... you name it.
Spout pours nice and clean. I wouldn't put anything but water in it as it'd be hard for me to fit my hand in to clean it. Not everyone would have a problem with that.
A good kettle but the lid does not like to stay on during pouring, and even the little rubber part at the top, heats up pretty quickly
