What is really fascinating about the Freshware PT-100 travel kettle is its sheer size – it’s the smallest travel kettle you can find (if somebody finds a smaller one, please do include it in the comments). You can check out the best travel kettle list here.
It is absurdly mini – only 114 inches3 – and it weighs less than a pound (0.8 pounds to be exact). This, of course, makes it perfect for hiking because the whole point of hiking kettles is being light-weight.
