Cooking With The Kessel Pot

I found this pot great for boiling water on the trail for coffee or tea. It would also be great for soup, chili, or whatever else you want to use with it. The 1.1L capacity makes it large enough to cook for more than one person as well. I like that the shape has a wide base on it to keep it stable while cooking.

The pot is shaped kind of like a kettle. It has a pour spout and a rounded handle that makes pouring out liquid really easy.

Clean Up

Clean Up

We tested the stainless steel version. And clean up was a lot easier than I anticipated. I cooked with this pot multiple times before I cleaned all the soot off. And with a little hot soapy water, most of the black came off with a wet paper towel. And the rest buffed out nicely with the scratchy side of a normal dish sponge.

I like that it comes with the canvas bag to help contain the soot if I want to put it in my bag before I’m ready to clean it up.

HandleCool to touch handle


The Kessel Pot comes with a removable handle that can nestle inside the pot, or in the canvas bag as well, but outside of the pot. The handle also stays cool to the touch even while cooking. I love this feature. No towels or hot pads needed to move the pot around or pour some boiling water.

Lid and Pot shot Kessel Pot Lid


The lid is designed to not rattle when the water is boiling, and also has 3 steam holes that can double as a strainer as well if you want to pour off a little liquid without losing your food along with it. It also has a large wooden handle that stays cool to the touch while cooking also.


A great little pot to have a round for outdoor cooking. Well thought through design that functions great without any extra non-essential bells and whistles. It cleans up great, and has a nice cooking capacity as well.
