Ghillie Kettles are easy and fun to use. However, certain safety precautions should be followed when using the kettle:
Only place the whistle on the spout do not push on. Never approach the kettle from the front
Avoid filling water chamber to the very top as water will expand when heated and may overflow. Fill to approx. 5-10ml below the spout
Never hold the handle above the chimney when the kettle is lit as it can result in a burn
Always keep children away from the kettle when in use. The Kettle should only be used by adults Never let children play in front of the kettle
Never use your Kettle when the water chamber is empty
After use allow time for the Kettle to cool before storing away
Use surplus water to extinguish fire
The Kettle is not designed to be a water carrier.
A few small leaks may occur at the rivet points or the bottom seam when new however they will usually seal themselves after a number of uses.
When using your kettle for the first time boil some water and throw away to remove residual sealant.
