15 Best Camping Kettles 2020: How To Choose The Right Kettle

A kettle is an essential piece of equipment for any camper.

Hot water is important for making your morning brew, staying hydrated and sterilising items.

There are plenty of options out there and we have put together this handy guide to tell you the top ones on the market.

Important Camping Kettle Features to Consider

Choosing the right camping kettle can make your camping, fishing, hiking trip much easier. Not all camp kettles are built the same and they also come in various types of materials from aluminium, stainless steel or titanium to campfire kettles or folding silicone ones.

Aluminium kettles are usually affordable, light to carry and anodised to make them more durable.

Stainless steel camping kettles are a bit heavier but still strong and also affordable.

Titanium camping kettles are super strong and lightweight but can be more expensive.

Campfire kettles have a handy handle which can be used to hang a kettle over a campfire or they can also be used on a camping stove.

Finally, folding kettles are made of silicone or a mix of silicone and aluminium and, as the name suggests, can be folded down small. Folding kettles may not be as efficient as other options, but great if you’re limited for space.
