Product Description

The Backcountry Boiler is a new chimney kettle that is being produced on a small scale here in the U.S.A. It is a lightweight and efficient way to boil water either for cooking or treatment and has the advantage of shaving off loads of weight in fuel. This is a very cool new product to the world of lightweight backpacking.


Taken from website...

Why you want one
Light – Roughly the same size and weight as a wide-mouthed water bottle
Versatile - Can operate on virtually anything flammable (so no fuel to carry, but also unlimited hot water. It’s basically like perpetual motion.)
Fast – depending on fuel and operator skill, it can boil 2 cups of water in under 5 minutes
Delicious – Makes hot drinks, rehydrates backpacking meals (yum)
Quenching – Can be used as a canteen to carry water when not in use
Sanitary – Creates potable water through boiling
Hard Core – Works in almost any weather – moderate wind actually makes it burn hotter!
Low Impact – Burns efficiently so it requires little kindling and leaves little ash
Awesome – seriously. Once this thing gets going, it’s like the bellows of Hades.

I just got mine in the mail today. I am very excited about this one and am looking forward to testing it out. The design looks excellent. Field test will follow.

This stove looks intriguing. Brian, how did it work this year? I'm especially interested to know if it works well melting snow.
