It's probably aimed at me Josh cos he got so worked up about a kettle being engraved.At the end of the day I asked about two people's work to get opinions from people who had seen or purchased the work.Not to get bull**** replies about a kettle when I posted on this thread I did not even realise it was Nick who had posted on my thread.I certainly did not mean to upset anyone it was a tongue in cheek reply to Greg who I have spoke to in the past and sold some reels to who's a really nice guy to deal with.

Rather off the original topic of kettles, but with the current trend of social media, Facebook, Twitter and various forums, 'allowing' insults, the government in both UK and USA is actually looking at bringing in new laws to tighten up on insults on social media altogether; partly because of the high profile insults thrown at politicians, but also because there have been cases of people suffering depression being insulted and then committing suicide. Some of the bloggers after reading the comments made have been diagnosed with depression.
Facebook etc are going to have to have more strict moderation!

You can laugh, but unless you know the person concerned personally, you wouldn't be crude, rude or insulting, and even then you won't do it with some of your friends or mates.
You DO NOT know how much an insult hurts or affects someone via social media. I can joke with close friends, but I would not insult someone over the internet, on a forum etc


Sadly anyone can pretty much hide behind a keyboard, on Facebook, on Twitter etc, and throw insults, and 'get away with it', but what if it was your comment that threw that person over the edge to commit suicide?

The amusing thing is that some people who have commented on this thread, made jokes etc, also commented on this thread, where someone was suffering severe mental stress.

Sorry, I really felt this point had to be made, maybe to some it will strike a chord, to others maybe it will ***** their conscience.

I bit because I am Autistic, and part of that is noticing any slight or insult. In other words, be careful who you insult, as severe learning differences can qualify as a disability, or you could be having a go at someone with mental illness and you could drop yourself right in it.

As it happens with things given to me by friends and family I am sentimental.

+1 to that The Titan stuff is also really nice.
MSR also do a wrap around heat exchanger for some of their pots (which would fit others too), in tests it reduced fuel consumption significantly, worth a look if that's your thing.

Nope. You just take a smaller container(s). Easier to pack too. Anyway, the cap will weigh about the same as the whistle.

I take my extra water in one or more flasks depending on the length of the session. A big advantage is that the flasks keep the water nice and cold on hot day. Plus, I got fed up with plastic water containers getting punctured.

Have a look at the MSR...kettles,they are stainless,very tough,they also double up if needed as a small saucepan,this is because of the wider than average diameter lid,you can also put what ever you want inside,ie a trestle and burner..

Check em out MSR,stuff is quality and cheap,I personally have the MSR 775,seagull pan which I use on a UCO pit/grill.

I used to have a big kettle with a whistle lid, soon changed it over for a smaller jack brew kettle. I did wonder why everyone used to visit just after the kettle had boiled.........

Wouldnít it make a difference if the water was boiling. Doesnít a boiling liquid have less mass that a colder one and therefore weigh less?

By the way I am just being an arse.

I don't want a kettle with a whistle as I'm always sitting next to it when it's on so can hear it boil. Plus some are loud enough to be intrusive.

Instead I prefer a kettle with a screw cap. That way I can use it to transport some of my water and so save space and weight.

I couldn't find one with a screw cap so bought a secondhand one off eBay.

Don't worry braders, I don't need to be as rude or as ignorant as you.
You have shown that in your reply, looking for attention for yourself, especially since the question asked was 'what kettle?' and you didn't come up with anything constructive.

In response to the original question, why pay carp tax?
This one works:camping kettle link at £5

If you want a small kettle that will fit inside most pans and boils very quick as its only 0.6 liter
then the TRANGIA Kettle 27 Series would be the one to buy

if you want to save some time that would be measured in seconds rather than mins ??
then the Fire Maple type kettles would be the one to buy but do not run away with the idea savings in gas would pay for it as it would take about 50 years

Iíve got one of the bulin versions that has the heat exchanger fins on it. I didnít buy it for these but just because it was cheap. However I was surprised to find that it actually does make a difference to the boiling time. Itís noticeably reduced.

I fished with a mate a while back and he was so surprised how quick it was he searched around on them Chinese sites like wish or similar and got one for about a tenner I think.

Kettle is a kettle but I got the ridgemonkey small because it's square and fits in my rucksack better when space is at a premium. Up to you if you're willing to pay the extra for that small benefit.

My 10 year old camping kettle gave up the ghost recently so bought the NGT one. I refuse to pay £10 carp tax just to have a different brand printed on it. It's metal, it doesn't leak, and it pours hot water into my mug.
