    GSI Outdoors Hae Tea Kettle is rated 4.3636 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best for boiling water - buy it! I am quite obsessive about my backcountry gear. I plan extensively and purchase gear often for my trips as a vicarious activity when work keeps me off the trail. I own or have owned just about all conceivable cooking systems. If you aren't a gram weenie or a 20 mile a day thru hiker - this kettle is the ideal choice for boiling water. At the time I purchased this pot, I was playing with alcohol stoves, due to deciding my Jetboil PCS was too heavy. The wide flame pattern of my Trangia Westwind and then MBD Bios necessitated a wide bottom in my boiling vessel. This kettle fit the bill. The "heat exchanger" on the retired Jetboil was a big deal, it captures heat very well. The wide bottom of thick aluminum on this Kettle did suprisingly well too - several minutes faster boil time from an anemic alcohol burner. When I went back to canister stoves (a Titanium Primus burner) after deciding alcohol stoves' negatives weren't worth the weight savings, I kept using the kettle instead of switching to a titanium mug for several reasons: * A Snow Peak 700 (for example) is only .7 ounce lighter, is smaller in volume, heats less efficiently, doesn't pour as easily, and costs 60% more. * Jetboil's new Titanium Sol mug can boil less than 1/2 the volume (.8 L volume but you can only fill it half way), weighs .8 ounces more, and is over 3 times the price. While it's heat exchanger may be more efficient in design, the titanium material is not as good conducting heat so I strongly suspect a wash in heat time / fuel usage. You are still limited to using Jetboil's heavy burners with this mug. The pour spout advantage wasn't one I had initially considered, but in use it has become HUGE. Pouring boiling water into a dehydrated meal is so much easier with this kettle versus a cup/mug style container. The spout on Jetboil's lid was the best I had used prior to the kettle, but I still managed to burn myself with that - not true with this kettle. This year I am experimenting with a Biolite stove - the GSI kettle has again been the perfect contailer to put on this stove. (In fact some of the the company's product photos included this kettle). Notice the pattern - in my obsession I've tried a bunch of stoves since leaving the Jetboil, but the GSI kettle has remained in my cooking kit. I've found no better..

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from fuel efficient and handy The dark anodizing and squat shape, I believe, improve the heat absorption considerably. I used an identically shaped bare aluminum kettle for many years; this uses less fuel. I got 5 full days including one snowmelt on a solo trip with 375mL white gas with a Whisperlite MSR stove. A tight-fitting windscreen is important. Bend the ends of the bale so it can't come loose -- or you may want to store the bale inside the pot. Pack it carefully, the protruding spout is vulnerable (that's what did in my old one). If the stove fit inside, it would be perfect.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This kettle rocks One of my best pieces of kitchen gear. Boils fast is light weight. I know all you do is boil water with it but it rocks. Simple to use pours great and is super light. I honestly didn't think I would use it much but I have boiled hundreds of gallons in one of these.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little kettle Used this kettle on a backpack and it's fantastic. Boils water quickly and easily and made meal time a breeze. Wish they had a slightly larger size, but this is bigger than it seems. Wish I would have bought this years ago. Worth bringing along the rest of my pots and pans. So light you just don't notice when packing it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from AWESOME! This teapot is awesome! It's very light. If you are not careful, the rubber on the handle will melt. Water boils quickly and it pours easily. I have two problems with it and they are minor. I wish it was a little bigger. A full pot was not enough to completely fill two GSI mugs(for coffee). But, water will boil so quickly in this thing, that it really was not a problem to just refill it. The othe rproblem is that the lid does not stay on. I used it to hold all of our coffee needs and I had to tape the lid to keep everything in. do not let those two minor issues keep you from buying this. It is absolutely awesome! When we go canoeing this summer, I think we will ditch the pots and pans and just bring this!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Effecient boiler Do you mainly just boil water, like for coffee, freezer bag cooking, freeze dried? This is a must have then, do you do the gourmet or cook in a pot, then this is a bad choice, however I do mac n cheese or ramen quite simply in the kettle, the spout makes it easy to strain noddles also. This kettle is very stable and boils water quickly, you can easily do 4 cups though the spout will spit a little while boiling. It would probably boil faster if the spout could be covered, but I haven't figured out a way I like yet. If you keep the included handle the rubber will eventually melt a bit and it makes lid removal difficult while upright. This piece is very easily modified though. The interior will hold a lot of items too. A great kettle.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great start for a cook kit I haven't used the kettle yet but my backpacking buddy has one and that's what sold me. I've been playing around with different cook kit combos and after seeing his in action sold me on it. For the price vs weight ratio it is a good option for those of us worried about weight but can't or won't spend the high dollars on a pot that will only save you another ounce or two but cost you three times as much just to boil water in. Fits my cat stove, lighter, bandana, wind screen, heat reflector, and the removable handle inside. The lid has a tight fit and the kettle is a nearly indestructible. Great product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only pot I need I originally received this as a gift, passed it on to a friend abroad, and bought another exactly like it. It is the perfect cooking tool for backpacking - so much easier to use than a traditional pot with lid. The handle doesn't get hot and the top is easy to remove even when the kettle is still warm. I use it on trips to heat water (it retains heat well); I use the water for coffee in the morning and for dehydrated meals at night. The spout makes it easy to pour and it doesn't spill the way traditionally shaped pots do.
