My friend and I love to go camping in the summer because it is so nice to be able to get out into the country side and enjoy getting back to nature. That said we are not ones for slumming it, we like to have a few creature comforts to make life in a tent that little bit nicer.
One of the biggest luxuries is a kettle so we can make a nice cup of tea whenever we want without having to wait ages for a small gas ring to heat an old aluminium kettle or a saucepan.
We had been using an old spare kettle left over from my university days but when it finally met it's maker I went looking for a nice cheap replacement. My travels took me to my local Tescos where I picked up this little wonder for a mere £5.
It is a very basic kettle as you can see, it really is just a simple jug with a handle and a clear window allowing you to see the water level which is pretty handy.
It is an exposed element which can lead to quite a lot of lime scale build up if you live in a hard water area but it does at least have a lime scale filter so you won't get white bits in your cup of tea.
The 1.7 litre capacity is plenty for making cups of tea for several thirsty campers or for filling a saucepan for the cooking of pasta over a gas stove.
It is a fairly quick kettle and as with most kettles switches off when it has boiled.
For £5 I am really pleased with my new camping kettle, and really think that if you are low on funds and are setting up a new home, or heading off to uni, you won't go far wrong with this!
Summary: Perfect little kettle for my camping trips.
