Boil 12 cups of water in 5 minutes with just a few dry twigs and a lighter, this is what makes the nostalgic Thermette essential for outdoor adventures.
History of The Thermette:
John Ashley Hart, a New Zealander, invented the Thermette in 1929. Hart later patented his design in 1931.
During the Second World War, the Thermette provided a quick and easy way to boil water and cook outdoors in the desert. During this era a New Zealand made Thermette was considered a vital piece of equipment for NZ Army Soldiers. During this time of war the Thermette acquired the nick name of ‘Benghazi Boiler’. Today in peace time, the Thermette continues to be used by the New Zealand Defence Forces in training and exercise programmes.Since 2014, Wilson & Co as sold hundreds of Thermette’s to delighted customers all over New Zealand and the world.
How a Thermette works:
Thermette’s unique Kiwi design has a cone shaped cylinder to hold water that heats up to boiling point very quickly. From a small fire at its base, heat is distributed fast to all the surfaces that surrounds the water. Then the heat generated funnels out the top of the cylinder chimney. Add the stainless cooking ring and you have a mini stove top.
