Summary

The Overmont camping kettle is an excellent product: made from durable anodized aluminium that’s FDA good-grade approved, this 0.8-litre kettle has a fast heating time for ultimate convenience. The kettle has an insulated handle designed to protect your hands from the heat, and a rolled lid and mouth to avoid splashing. Weighing just 0.5-lb, this is an extremely light-weight kettle (although it doesn’t fold up so is a little bulkier than collapsible models) suitable for 1 or 2 people looking for a small kettle for heating water occasionally when camping.

The main con of this kettle is the small capacity – with just 0.8-litres, larger groups aren’t going to find the Overmont particularly suitable.

Pros

  • Made from anodized aluminium for durability
  • Natural heat-resistant rubber handle
  • Light-weight design
  • Fast heating time

Cons

  • Low capacity (0.8-litres)
  • Not super compact

What to look for in a camping kettle:

Weight & Size

If you’re going to be hiking into your campsite, the last thing you want is an enormous, bulky kettle weighing you down. Likewise, if you’re tight for space in your car or campervan, a smaller, more light-weight design is going to be useful.

Bear in mind, however, that the more compact designs typically have a smaller capacity, so large groups may prefer having a bigger kettle to accommodate everyone.

Capacity

How many people do you need your camping kettle for? 1 person can get by with a small camping kettle with a 1-litre capacity, while two people may be comfortable with a small kettle if you only need it for a cup of coffee in the morning.

As a guide, a 2-litre capacity kettle should be suitable for 2-3 people. Larger groups may want to consider getting more than one kettle.

Price

Most camping kettles range between £8 – £15, depending on the material used in the kettles construction and the overall capacity.

Remember, the cheapest kettle isn’t always the best kettle – sometimes it’s worth investing it a more expensive one if it will last you longer.

Handle

A heat-resistant handle is a valuable feature for a camping kettle, so you can easily remove it from the heat when ready without having to find a cloth to protect your hands.

What’s more, some kettles have foldable handles which can be useful for packing up and saving space.

Whistle

A whistling camping kettle ensures you don’t forget about your water while it’s boiling over the stove – a good feature if you’ve got limited water or time! If you know you’re likely to forget about your kettle while doing other things, investing in one with a whistle can be a good idea.
