The Storm Kettle Story
Before cheap flights and growth of good transport links, the western part of Ireland was particularly remote, and the winter nights must have seemed very long. In order to while away the evenings some of the Irish crofters used to craft a simple water boiler in copper using hand tools - for fisherman, itinerant workers and tourists. This proved to be highly effective and efficient.
John Grindlay, who with his wife owns and runs the Eydon Kettle Company, modified the design and implemented modern manufacturing techniques and materials in the early 1970s. So the heritage and satisfaction with the Storm Kettle continues. All Storm Kettles are carefully made in the UK from aluminium.
Nowadays they can be found in the Solomon Islands, helping remote islanders boil water to purify it, in remote parts of southern Africa, where dried cattle dung is used by the Zulus as fuel and in the Sahara Desert on expeditions.
How the Storm Kettle Works
Fill the Kettle with water. Light a small fire in the base of the Storm Kettle, you can use a sheet of newspaper to start it, followed by small twigs, cones, dry grass or even camel dung if you have it!
Put the kettle on to the base, more fuel can be added through the top when necessary. Never boil with the cork in! The water in the double skin surrounding the chimney boils quickly as heat from the fire passes up the centre. Once the Kettle has boiled, use the handle and the chain from the cork to help you pour the water safely.
Capacity: 1.5 litres
The CookKit & Pan Support set comprises of:
- 2-piece grill;
- Frying pan;
- Removable grip handle;
- Pan support/pot stand.
How to use your CookKit and Pan Support set
The 2-piece grill can drop onto the storm kettle base after the kettle itself has boiled and has been removed. Either the saucepan or the frying pan can then be put on the grill to cook food and keep drinks warm. The saucepan can be easily taken off the heat using the special removable grip handle, to allow re-fuelling of the storm kettle.
Finally, the innovative pan support can be put on top of the storm kettle whilst it is boiling to make use of the spare heat coming out of the top chimney. This means that heat that would vanish out of the top of the kettle is instead utilized to support cooking utensils and nothing is wasted!
