Frequently Asked Questions


  1. Why is there an mKettle? We looked far and wide but could not find an outdoor kettle that was light enough and compact enough for our needs. We designed and made it, gave it to a bunch of geologists and outdoor enthusiasts to try it out and feedback was good. mKettles have been in continued commercial production since October 2010. 
  2. What comes in the box? Inside the custom tube (which can be used for long-term storage) are the mKettle and Firebase, Neoprene Sleeve, Nylon Bag, Stopper, and Manual.
  3. Where is mKettle made? The mKettle is handmade in the UK using new stock aluminium which is then hard anodized inside and out to British Standard ISO10074:2010. The Fitted Rip Stop Nylon Bag with D-Rings and Neoprene Sleeve are made by tailors in the UK with a long history of tailoring and working with specialty materials. Why do you do all your manufacturing in the UK? Because we want to and can do. Yes, it would cheaper to manufacture overseas.
  4. Tell me about the Stopper. The translucent silicone food-grade non-toxic Stopper is usually only supplied to the pharmaceutical industry. Biologically neutral and chemically inert the Stopper is able to withstand temperatures up to +250°C. The Stopper is a remarkable autoclavable (dishwasher safe) engineering achievement. Only insert the Stopper when transporting water.
  5. Is there any Warranty? Because of our engineering and testing for this product we give the mKettle a one year limited Warranty to the original owner. We know nothing is worse than a leaking outdoor kettle, which is one of reasons we made our own. Every mKettle is water tested before leaving our workshops. However, if an mKettle is faulty or leaks, we will fix it, replace it or send your money back. Simple. Please do not boil it dry as we will not warranty this.
  6. Can you ship worldwide? You bet. We ship first class post world wide. It takes on average about seven days to receive an mKettle internationally.
  7. There are many different outdoor kettles, what makes mKettle special? Some larger outdoor kettles serve different purposes. However, if you want a simple, compact, and ultralight outdoor kettle that is PROVEN to work in the field, the mKettle might work well for you.
