Freshware Collapsible Travel Kettle Review: For Hiking And Camping

freshware silicone kettle review
Freshware kettle can collapse in a teeny-tiny travel kettle; perfect for backpacking and camping.

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.

Oh, have I mentioned it doesn’t need electricity? When you’re out in the wild, there is no electricity. Freshware travel kettle is heated up on a stovetop. A stovetop is probably something you have with you already when camping or hiking.

Just an important reminder: Freshware kettle is almost exclusively used for camping and hiking. Basically to help you get out of the tent in the morning and up the hill.
