Food4Patriots Sun Kettle

The Sun Kettle is a solar water heater that is portable, completely silent and uses no electricity to safely boil water for drinking, hygiene or sanitation.

The Sun Kettle is constructed from tough ABS plastic and shatter-resistant tempered glass. That means you don’t have to worry about accidental tumbles and bumps… this thing is built like a tank.

The real breakthrough is the evacuated tempered glass tube. This traps every bit of heat producing light that hits it… and doesn’t let go. In fact, it’s so efficient you can touch the exterior parabolas with your bare hands when it’s at full temperature.  The glass tube does get hot – very hot.  Boiling hot.  Close up those sides before you start to pour.

The sides of the Sun Kettle fold out to reveal two parabolic mirrors that grab every bit of sun they can and focus it on the glass tube, which means it’s ultra-compact when you’re on the go, and has a maximum sun-catching footprint when in use.

The ventilated cap means you’ll never have to worry about pressure levels and dangerous over boils. Just fill the Sun Kettle, replace the cap and point at the sun!

The square base and kickstand combine to give 4 points of contact, so you don’t have to worry about tips and spills. Open the sides, fold out the kickstand and you’re ready to boil water!

Works well in direct sunlight.

A higher capacity unit would be well served.

Good but limited temperature

The Sun Kettle is great for warming water for a cup of cocoa or instant soup, But most meal preperations require boiling water and i wasn't able to get the water that hot during my trials.

I haven't given up and plan to continue testing

Everyone likes hot soup!

This is a must for hunters. When you are out there in the cold woods all day, you can open a can of soup, put it in your Sun Rocket and let it do it's thing. You will have hot soup, and of course that is after you finished your hot coffee!
This little baby does the trick. Be patient and give it time to do it'job. Be sure to set it appropriately facing the sun with shadow directly behind it. It works! Lou from Utica, NY.

sun kettle

I have bought this sun kettle for emergencies for when our power goes out. I have not used it yet but I feel very prepared which is so very good.

I gave this to my soninlaw (who lives in the southwest) for Christmas. He said he was able to get boiling water in about 1.5 hours and with the mirrors closed it retained its heat to provide a warm drink several hours later. To sterlize water it needs to boil 20 minutes at 170 degrees and it did get the job done. Great for 1-2 people.

Great idea!

The concept of the Sun Kettle is great. The only thing I would point out is that it doesn't heat as fast as the advertising would imply. In my initial testing it took over 2 hours for the water to boil (low Fall sun in ND).

Sun Kettle

You may like the addition of a UV lite and /or improved glass transparency for UV
to sterilize the water while heating. I did get shafted when you changed to 12 volt
batteries from the original 24 volt but otherwise keep up the good work.

Great hot!! Water

These work very well . The only sad thing is the top comes of if picked up by its top. I know because I did it and all the glass broke. Be careful and it is great.

Very nice

Bought this to try for fun. In half an hour after putting in the sun I already had hot water for coffee and tea. Works awesome and I would recommend it.

Mixed results

I tried the kettle twice. First time, after 2 hours, the water was quite warm but not hot. The 2nd time, after 1 1/2 hours, the water was very hot, 165degrees. I was able to cook 1/2 package of ramen. Still al dente after a minute and not super hot but edible.
Both tests were at midday on a clear day, in Hawaii.

Heat

Everything arrived in tact. My husband made fun of me. Brought one out filled it up put it outside and in about an hour it was boiling hot. Only problem is the magnet latch is useless use a rubber band to keep it closed

not bad, over all

Wasn't sure what to expect when my package arrive. Literally, you can put maybe 2 hot dogs inside with the remaining space for the water needed to cook/boil them. Your statements about using this device alongside the Food 4 Patriots survival food may or may not work - I mean one container only holds about 2 cups of water, it would take a long time to prepare a meal for more than 2 people. In survival mode, yes - the practicality of this device is hands down very useful. I gave one to my father-in-law in El Salvador, along with one of the solar lanterns I purchased from you before. Note to self - get with Frank about purchasing hundreds of those lanterns - my father-in-law is the talk of his town! Everyone, literally, wants one.
Keep up the great work, Frank.

I did a test with the sun kettle. It works just as it's billed.
The first one shipped to me was broken, when i sent it back and ordered a replacement it was packaged the same way. with a little thought and almost no extra effort they could send those out with far fewer damage.

What a great item to have!

I love my sun Kettle! My kids take it on camping trips and I use it out in the fields to have our coffee or tea when we need it. We get hot water in less than 20 minutes and even so on cloudy days.

Sun Kettle

Recently we had a water outage, then we had to boil water to use it. My sun kettle really came in handy. no electrify for three days and I could still have my coffee and water for cooking. The Alexapure was a godsend as well. I wish I could afford another one. We are retired on a fixed income so I have to be carful with our budget, but these two items were worth every penny.

Ah For The Love of Hot Tea

Hello, I am always on the look out for Solar products. I am a real beleiver in solar products. So when Food4/Patriots came out with the "Sun Kettle, I Purchased 3 units. When I received the Sun Kettles I was excited to heat water. This time year the Sun is low in the horizon. I filled the Sun Kettles with water and put it out on my front porch. An hour and half later I had hot.water. It was lunch time so I fixed myself a cup of Tea. Next I plan to cook a bowl of soup. I love my Solar Kettle. It's one more product to replace the use of electricity. Great Product!!

Sun-tastic water heater.

I purchased 4 sun kettles. 2 for me and 1 for each 1 of my married sons. They really work. On Christmas Day, my youngest son put his out in the sun and in 35 minutes, the water was hot enough for hot chocolate. WELL WORTH THE MONEY.
