There are two different types of camping I tend to get involved in. One is basically take a little gear as possible and rough it for a night or maybe two, this usually takes place somewhere in Scotland with your camp site basically being where ever you stop walking and pitch your tent, often known as wild camping. The other is a far more civilised form of camping which involves heading to a scenic location with a group of friends, paying a small fee and then staying on a nice little camp site. I enjoy both forms of camping for different reasons, but I do pretty much have two set of camping equipment, simply because when I stay on a site, I like to live reasonably comfortably. Whereas when wild camping, comfort goes out the window. So one of the things I like to use when camping in civil surroundings is this, the Halulite Tea Kettle.
The fact is that if I don't get my morning cup of coffee I'm not a happy bunny. This is called a tea kettle but as far as I am aware there has never been any tea anywhere near it. This is used for coffee and the odd pack of super noodles and the like. Although this is just simply a kettle is does seem to be a pretty good quality one and one that has always performed very well, so let me tell you a little but more about it.
The Halulite Tea Kettle is first of all very light. The material it is made from weighs just 32 oz and also seems to conduct heat very well which is obviously something you would want in a kettle. Leave this over the camping stove and it boils very quickly, I used to use a pan to heat water, but this kettle is so much quicker and more efficient than that. It is not massive but at the same time it is big enough to boil a few cups at once if you are camping with friends and want to make a few drinks.
The kettle is designed in an easy to use way, the handle is well out of the way and doesn't get to hot when you are boiling the water. The spout pours well and does not drip if your pour carefully. The lid pops off and on very easily so you can put water in with no hassle and also check up on the contents of your kettle.
This is a slightly more expensive kettle than most on the market. This cost me around £35 and looking around online it looks as though you may be hard pushed to find it any cheaper than that. Despite the price it is good value as it has lasted me very well so far and it does seem to be very strong a durable. I get the feeling that this is the kind of kettle that will last you a long long time.
Although there are certainly cheaper camping kettles on the market, if you go camping on a fairly regular basis then this is one that you should really consider buying. It does everything that a good camping kettle should and with minimal fuss. Boiling water in a pan or a mug does of course work, but it takes a long time and uses up large amounts of gas, use this little kettle and you will save time, energy and money in the long run. The Halulite Tea Kettle really is a top class little kettle that should grace everyone's camp site.
