Sun kettle really works

This is a great product if you are looking for a way to heat water with the sun. It will heat water to warm or hot. Make sure to have mirrored sides open, use the stand that is attached to the bottle and turn it to face the sun. Heating at prime sun hours of 10am to 3pm is advised. The tip of the bottle was hot and the water was hot after being out in the sun on a 65 degree day. It will work better on a bright sunny day as opposed to a partly sunny day. Great for camping or during power outages

Can’t get water to boiling temperature

I bought a three pack and have been testing one so far. I’m at sea level with direct Sun and can’t get the water to boiling temperature. I tried for an hour, an hour and a half and today an hour and 45 minutes and the water temp hasn’t passed 150 degrees. I’ll test all three tomorrow at 2 hours and it they don’t reach boiling temperature I unfortunately may return them all.

Kevin, we're very sorry to hear you've had trouble with the Sun Kettle. I do want to advise if you are using the Sun Kettle to sterilize water, ensure that the water temperature is at or above 150°F (65°C) for more than 20 minutes. Please keep in mind outdoor conditions could lengthen your "heat up" time as well. 150°F (65°C) is actually the temperature it takes to kill or inactivate those organisms that can cause harm to humans, such as Giardia, Cryptosporidium, Endameba, the eggs of worms, Vibrio cholerae, Shigella, Salmonella bacteria, those that cause typhoid, the enterotoxigenic strains of E. coli, Hepatitis A and rotaviruses. As little as five minutes at this temperature will kill 99.99% of waterborne microorganisms (Source: Department of Health,www.health.ny.gov). If you are having further issues, please reply directly to this email! Best Regards~Mandy

Must have

Its not that I didn’t purchase these sooner, because I would have. But it was a budget thing. Glad these came on sale, and I had the funds to buy three. Can’t say more about them other than it was a wise choice to add to my emergency backups. They work very well surprisingly and if it’s sunny, do keep your eye on it. Tested this first day I received them and boy, my water was boiling in 30 minutes. Note it was a sunny winter day in early march. Filled up with water and set it facing the sun. Checked it in 30 mins. and wow, it was boiling. Did not think anything was happening because it was cool to the touch on the outside of the glass bottle. Ingenious and affordable. About 2/3rds of my emergency food is freeze dried. This will insure I make hot meals for sure. Took one fishing a month later on a cold partially sunny/ snowy day. Took almost an hour but I had boiling water to whip up some instant coffee and some freeze dried scrambled eggs. I’m impressed and satisfied for the purchase. The numerous things that can be done with hot water are endless and with these cookers, you’ll be ahead of the game, just in case. Again a smart decision and a wise buy. Always be ready.

Good. But not great

This kettle will warm water wonderfully, but don't expect to get hot water in an hour. After one hour (tried twice) I got warm water, but not hot enough even to make it uncomfortable to put my finger into the water. Perhaps I am not doing something right, but the instructions are so basic I am not sure.

Gary, I'm so sorry to hear you've had trouble with your Sun Kettle. How long did you have it in the sun? Were the parabolic mirrors angled with the kickstand at 45 degrees? What conditions were occurring outside? If you still need assistance, please don't hesitate to reply to this email directly. Best Regards~Mandy

Awsome

Ill be honest. I was very skepical when I got these. It seemed to easy. Delivery took longer than I thought but that seems to be the way and is no fault of them. Its supply and a high demand gor these products. I got it yesterday March 14. It rained,snowed,and was very overcast. Got home today at about 10AM. It was sunny and 41. I put this to the test. About 1.5 hours water was 158 degrees. This helps round out my preps. With 3 its coffee and a hot meal. Im going to put one in each truck and keep one in the house. If your on the fence I say go for it.

Mary, we're very sorry to hear you haven't received your Sun Kettles. Looking into this, I do see the Sun Kettles were denied at customs with UPS and was returned back to us: 1Z16918R6790540151. What may have occurred is a damaged shipment en route and wouldn't know about its condition until it is returned. I see Precious had emailed you on 4/16 regarding your order with the option to reship or refund your order. Please reply directly to this email to let me know what you would prefer. Best Regards~Mandy
