    You should also review the Kelly Kettle. We live in Florida and one of the dangers is hurricanes. With a hurricane, we can easily loose our water supply or have to boil the water we do have. The best way to do this is with a Kelly Kettle. It burns anything – twigs, bark, pinecones – anything and does it fast. You could easily boil enough water for your family in no time at all. You can even cook small amounts of food on top of the Kelly Kettle while it is heating the water. We love it.
