While you're boiling your water for a cup of tea, you can also be toasting marshmallows and warming your hands.
There’s no such thing as a bad cup of tea in the bush with original New Zealand Made Thermette. The solid Copper Thermette comes with Stainless Steel Cooking Ring and Galvanised Fire Ring
Boiling water in under five minutes with just a few twigs and a piece of paper and the Thermette is a must for anyone who loves the great outdoors or long lazy picnics. The Thermette is a New Zealand icon and we all remember the days of cups of tea made from stream water boiled in the Thermette. Made in New Zealand from copper the Thermette is not only designed to be efficient but built to last a lifetime.
Invented in New Zealand the Thermette uses a unique copper cone-shaped cylinder that holds water. This cylinder distributes heat from a small fire at its base to the large coned surface area that is surrounded by water. Heat from the small fire not only heats the internal water rapidly but also funnels it out the top of the cylinder creating additional heat for cooking.

The Thermette was invented in 1929 by a New Zealander, John Ashley Hart and quickly became a New Zealand icon. During the Second World War, the Thermette was issued as standard equipment for New Zealand regiments fighting in the North African deserts. The Thermette was lovingly nicknamed the `Benghazi Boiler’ and became a treasured piece of equipment in the harsh environment of the desert. Campsites occupied by New Zealand army units always left the distinctive circle of scorched earth from where the Thermette stood. This puzzled the Enemy troops for some time until they learnt that it was only New Zealand troop camps that left this distinctive telltale sign.
Thermette – The more the wind blows the quicker the water boils.
