How the Ghillie Kettle Works
You can also find a great video amongst the images to show the Ghillie Kettle in action , using the standard Aluminium Ghillie Kettle , this was kindly provided by The Team @ Ghillie Kettle.
Water is poured into the spout to approx. 5-10ml below the spout. Warning: do not overfill and do not light when empty.
The whistle is added. Only place the whistle on the spout. Do not push or force it on. Never approach the kettle from the front.
Place fuel (twigs, fir cones, etc,) into the base.
Light carefully and immediately place the kettle on the base. Once lit the flames will rise through the middle of the chimney.
The hole at the side of the bottom allows oxygen to be absobed as the flames rise (you can also add fuel through the centre of the chimney).
The whistle an invaluable safety feature it blows when the water reaches boiling point. Ghillie Kettle is the original 'one with a whistle'.
Your Ghillie kettle can be used in harsh, wet and windy conditions. It's simple to use and doesn't require gas or any other artificial fuels. Just use twigs, fir cones, dry leaves and/or newspaper

Why Hard Anodised? a little information from Ghillie Kettle :-
"The Result of Hard Anodising is that you get a thicker stronger coating which is approximately 2-4 times stronger than the normal Anodising process. It's as close as you can get to titanium while still using an easily machinable aluminum and stronger than stainless steel, with the added benefits of being lighter (a necessity when camping or travelling long distances) boiling water quicker and, importantly, unlike stainless steel, it won't rust!
All Hard Anodised Ghillie Kettles are manufactured using the Hard Anodisation process, and the Ghillie Kettle company would like you to know that this is the most durable kettle to date.
Anodisation is primarily used to toughen up the outer shell of the aluminum and is also an easy way to add colour to your piece. What the process actually does is creates a aluminium hydroxide layer on the surface of the metal. After the process is complete the aluminum is no longer susceptible to nicks and scratches to the surfaces because the pores of the metal have tightened up creating a harder surface
There are 3 types of Anodisation
Type I - is a specialist anodising using chromic or phosphoric acid instead of sulphuric acid,.
Type II - is the Anodising that can be done in a garage, using sulfuric acid and coloured dyes.
Type III - is hard coat Anodisation, or Hard Anodising. Requires a more controlled environment.
Type III or Hard Anodising is performed with a weaker solution of sulfuric acid, and a lower temperature acid bath. Normally for Type II anodising we have our acid bath around 60-70 degrees fahrenheit. The temperature often rises during the anodising process. For type III hard Anodising, the temperature must be at 35-40 degrees. The acid bath must be constantly mixed, otherwise a warm layer of acid will build up around the piece. The electric current will be much higher, perhaps 20 amps per sq foot. This requires bath mixing machines and cooling equipment."
