Advanced Solar Technology

Parabolic mirrors trap the rays of the sun. Then, solar-collection technology focuses the sun’s energy on the tempered-glass tube. Which heats your water to temps as high as 212°F in about 45 minutes, depending on your weather conditions.

Safe & Durable Construction

Advanced engineering makes your Sun Kettle® powerful, efficient and safe.

  1. SOLAR POWERED: Use the free energy of the sun to boil water. No need for batteries or cords.
  2. SAFE: Use your bare hands to touch the Sun Kettle XL because it is made from premium BAS plastic. A ventilated cup also helps prevent dangerous overboils.
  3. KEEPS DRINKS HOT: Close the mirrors to use like a thermos & keep your drinks TOASTY for hours.
  4. BUILT TOUGH: Tempered-glass tube is shatter-resistant to withstand tumbles & bumps.
  5. STABLE ANYWHERE: Square base and kickstand give you 4 points of contact and prevents spilling.

A Cinch to Use — Easy as 1, 2… 3!

You don’t have to be a “gadget guru” to use a Sun Kettle®. It’s so easy to operate, anyone can do it. There are only 3 simple steps:

  1. Fill with liquid
  2. Open panels towards the sunlight
  3. Enjoy hot food, clean water and more — all thanks to the sun

Quiet, Covert & Smoke-Free

Never alert a looter to your location. This solar thermos is silent and requires no flames. The perfect survival device in any off-grid environment.

Compact & Lightweight

Don't let the "XL" fool you. The Sun Kettle XL is foldable and conveniently fits in your bug out bag or backpack. At only 2 ft. tall and 3.7 pounds, it's small enough to pack away and take with you in an emergency. Unlike a heavy stockpot... and the firewood you’d need to heat it.

Works Fast, Even in Cloudy Conditions

Your Sun Kettle® boils water in about 45 minutes, depending on sunlight and temperature conditions. No fuss, no muss. Just fill up your Sun Kettle® XL and let Mother Nature do the rest.

There’s no denying how valuable having a few of these personal water heaters on hand could be. For cooking, purifying drinking water… but you can also use your Sun Kettle® to make all kinds of tasty concoctions!

Customer Reviews: Folks Love This Solar Cooker

It Cooked While We Fished

"It's great if you want to boil water for tea, coffee, or for a freeze-dried lunch. It's ideal for 2 or 3 people… Really simple to set up. You can set it and let it go and not have to worry about tending a fire just to boil some water.

We went fishing for about an hour and a half and left it ‘cooking.’ It's definitely steamy.

You want to enjoy your camping experience, not be constantly worried about cooking. Super cool product. I highly recommend it."

Sun kettle

Haven't used it yet, but lighter than I expected and pretty simple to use according to instructions. The Columbia gas explosions that happened in 2019 affected us in Lawrence, MA. We lost electricity for three days and natural gas for 2 and 1/2 months. We were not prepared but will be for the next disaster.



Cecile, wow, thanks for sharing your experience with us. We're so glad to know the Sun Kettle XL is part of your preparedness plan. Thanks for choosing 4Patriots! Best Regards~Mandy

Solar water kettle

Great for camping and just if the power Is out NTD sun is up. Takes alle to heat up the water but with the thermometer on top - you dn’t have to get it to oiling just the temp you want and it’s a full quart of water as well not just a cupful.



Patricia, thank you for the review! We're pleased to hear that the Sun Kettle XL has met your expectations. Thank you for supporting 4Patriots! Best Regards ~ Brigitte

It works

It heats the water, but takes much time. Make sure to keep aligning with sun. Difficult to pour out because it is cumbersome. But after about 1.5 hours the water was 150.



Mary, thank you for the review! We truly appreciate your feedback on our Sun Kettle XL. We rely on customer feedback to help us improve our products! Thank you for supporting 4Patriots. Best Regards ~ Brigitte

The Perfect Accompaniment to our Food Storage Program

Just because you have all your wonderful meals that will last 25 years, you are not all set. You need a way to cook/heat the meals. When the power is out the Sun Kettle comes to the rescue. It holds enough water for two meals and two after dinner cups of cocoa as well! We live in southern UT where bright Sun is always available. Only took 35 minutes to boil water from room temperature. This is one of the most important items in our Prepping System!



Thank you for your review Valerie! It is great to know that the Sun Kettle XL Solar Cooker works well for you. Best Regards ~Ashley

Solar Cooker XL

It works very well. Temperature got up to 212 degrees in about half hour. Perfect for camping or power outages. I will most likely purchase one or two more.



Hi Walter, Thank you for your review and feedback of our Solar Sun Kettle XL. We are so happy to read such a great review! We're thrilled that you chose 4Patriots for your survival needs. Best Regards, Kristy B.

first time user of Sun Kettle product

I think it has more than just food uses. We have a dog and some chickens so we don't want to use toxic ant or **** control. With this, we can bring water to boil right alongside us working in the yard,and pour boiling water where we want to eradicate poison ivy or fire ant mounds. Plus it operates in the yard, so there's no need to run back and forth into the house to boil water.



Hi Gail, Thank you so much for your review and feedback of our Sun Kettle XL. It's nice to hear of the different uses of the Sun Kettle. Best Regards, Kristy B.

So you want me to review a product that showed up broken with a hole in the package box and not the shipping box, indicative of it being packaged to ship broken. Then I process a return immediately and two weeks later nobody knows what's going on. Real sketchy if you want my honest opinion. I don't see me doing any business with 4patriots in the future. I think I'll be lucky to get product or money at this point.



Eric, I am so sorry to hear about your damaged Sun Kettle XL. Please know this is never the experience we wish our customers to encounter with us. I do see your replacement is being prepared for pickup as of 7/5 via USPS: 92612902941286541400220050. We do usually request a return, but I do understand the shattered glass does pose a risk with handling. The reason for this is because we want to review how and why the unit broke in transit. Please disregard the return request and toss the damaged unit at your convenience (if not already). For the inconvenience, I have issued $25 off your order and should reflect in 7-10 business days. Best Regards~Mandy

Sun kettle

Get one. It could save your life. Because when it comes to water this is the one way to purify it with the power of the sun. If you don't have a water purification system or your unable to filter you water this is the best bet.



Thank you for your review Rian! We're so happy to hear that you're pleased with your Sun Kettle XL. Best Regards! ~ Kerri
