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!

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.

Sun Kettle

The Sun Kettle is an essential piece of survival gear. It works very well to boil water in a short period of time using only the power of the sun's rays. It's compactness makes it easy to carry and move when necessary. It takes up little space with the rest of one's survival gear.

A great product

I confess I haven't used the Sun Kettle yet, but I'm relieved to know I have it. I live in hurricane country and my city is barely 3 ft above sea level. When we get hit head on and lose power and our water supply is compromised, that Sun Kettle just might save my life and lives of others.

I rated this with 5 stars because of the design. I have not used it, so I can't rate it for its performance.

I purchased three of these Kettlles & was so impressed with their performance that I gave one to my Son, who is also a “Prepper”. He was also very pleased with lt. Now I have hot water to prepare my food.

Perfect for cups of soup

During Pennsylvania s Deer season (Nov,Dec) I would set out the kettle and by lunch time it was hot enough for soup. Very convenient and we'll constructed. On cloudy cold days the water was only med warm. Great for dishes.

Sun Kettle

I was sceptical about it at first but then my daughter(11)wanted hot chocolate in the middle of summer,why??? Anyway I let her fill it up with our well water (56°) and put it out in the sun positioning it properly.It took about 90min,and a little repositioning,but the water was boiling and it impressed both of us but most of all it made the best hot chocolate ever.The kettle itself seems to be ruggedly built and should hold up to some rough times and it works,given patience,only drawback is that it'll only do 16oz at a shot.

Excitement

We bought three of them, and I gave tow away to friends as Christmas gifts. Don’t know if they will ever use them, but if things do happen in the future and we do lose electricity, they will have a way to heat water and make coffee. We have not used ours yet, but I am glad we have it because I do believe that a time is coming soon when we will need it. We did set it up, and it seems very easy to use.

SunKettle

It is one of the best items to have either on a back country camping trip or a serious power outage
The been for hot water is so important in both cases! To have something that is so lightweight and easy to use is priceless! You need to have more than one to keep the hot water going, so order the package deal.

Rating the Sun Kettle 5

I tried the Sun Kettle when I first got it. It was late in the day and the sun went down sooner than I thought. I didn't expect the water to even be warm, but found it rather hot ! This was good news, but I lifted it by the handle and it pulled apart ! I was disappointed in that. I did buy another for a friend as it does work and very handy to have, just in case !

One wasn't enough !

Actually I purchased 3 Sun Kettles. We were sold on the idea and used 2 of the order for Christmas gifts to our adult children. Their reaction was the best advertisement I could think of. I am sorry I was not able to video the excitement shown. They have both tried them out and are happy with the speed they will actually boil water. A trial run from ours was used to make coffee in less than 20 minutes on an overcast day with light clouds. You can't beat that !! All our neighbors are now wanting to get theirs as soon as possible and I hand out 4Patriots website information to all my friends. Thank you for such a clever device.

Haven't used it yet; but, it seems easy to use & would be useful if somewhere a camp fire isn't allowed.

Haven't tried it yet, but the concept makes sense.

This thing is pretty neat. I haven't tried to heat water with it, but I plan to try it out soon. It is simple, compact and should work nicely in a pinch. I have a couple of units, so larger batches of hot water will be possible if the need arises.
