When I’m fishing, I just cannot get by without a nice hot cuppa!

I highly recommend buying a kettle that is as efficient as possible.

BEST CARP KETTLE WINNER!
Fox Heat Transfer Kettle
Designed to increase efficiency, the Fox ‘Heat Transfer’ Kettle is a proper carpy kettle!
Built using heavy duty aluminium, it retains temperature until you’re ready to pour.
Some kettles can often be ruined after a few uses, but the non-stick finish ensures no unexpected lime scale, or flakes of metallic paint, end up in your brew!
The lid is quite tight, with minimum rattle, whilst I found it boiled fairly quickly too.
Once you’re finished, allow the kettle to cool down and you can then simply fold away the durable handles and store away in your cookware bag.
It arrived packed into a box, with a handy net bag.
There are two sizes available – 0.9 litres which makes two cups and 1.5 litres, which is enough for a cuppa with plenty of hot water left for adding to your food, such as noodles or rice.
I really enjoyed using the Fox Heat Transfer Kettle.
I liked how lightweight and compact it was, and I would highly recommend this kettle as part of you carp kit.
- Increased heavy duty aluminium wall thickness
- Quality non-stick finish
- Durable folding handles
- Lightweight compact design
- Heat transfer kettle increases efficiency and performance

Trakker Armolife Kettle
Next up on our best carp kettle list is the Trakker Armolife Kettle.
I used this with the Armolife Stove (makes sense) and not only was it stable, it boiled fairly quickly too!
It easily made two cups, with a little left over for washing them out afterwards.
Made from aluminium, the Armolife Kettle has a capacity of 1.1 litres which I found more than enough.
Lightweight, and also easy to pack away, the wide base ensured it stayed on the stove as it should!
It did rattle a little bit, but not enough to annoy me.
There was no flaking after using it half a dozen times, meaning the quality was brilliant.
It can also be purchased as part of the Armolife cookware set, which features a frying pan and saucepan.
The Armolife Kettle was very good, easy to use and cleaned up well after use – probably due to the non-stick anodised coating.
I would certainly recommend this kettle.
- Lightweight, easy to clean Kettle
- Folding handle
- Material: Aluminium
- Dimensions: 15.2cm x 7.8cm = 1.1ltr capacity
- Weight: 186g

Armolife Power & Jumbo Kettles
Trakker have also released two other models – the Armolife Power Kettle, and the Jumbo Kettle.
The power version is 33% more efficient.
This is due to the heat transfer functionality, similar to the Fox kettle above, which means it boils much more quickly.
It is more expensive, and if you want to learn more, we’ve included a video of this below.
The jumbo kettle, you guessed it, retains all the great features of the standard kettle – but is bigger!
Again, like most other carp tackle brands, these are available as part of a cookware set.
Ridge Monkey Square Kettle
Our next review of the best carp kettles is this – the Ridge Monkey Square Kettle.
I wasn’t sure about the shape at first, but I’m told that the flat surface area is designed to make water boil faster!
Although I haven’t carried out any ‘boiling tests’ as yet, when used in conjunction with the Ridge Monkey Quad Connect Stove, you should have a brew in your hand in under 2 minutes…
The ‘cool touch’ handles fold in, with it packing away nice and compactly due to the ergonomic design.
With two sizes available (0.5 litres, and 1.1 litres), each kettle comes with a tidy drawstring bag
A game changer in the cut-throat carpy kettle world, I see no reason not to buy this.
- Unique cubed design
- Lightweight, hardwearing anodised aluminium body
- Large surface area
- Cool touch folding handles
- Packs neatly into confined spaces
- Protected registered design
- Drawstring carry bag included

Carpology have carried out an extensive review of the cookware series – the video below is well worth a watch.
It may even give you a better idea into the functionality, and design!
Wychwood Carpers Kettle
With a traditional carpy appearance, this kettle wins on looks alone!
The latter may be a great choice on a social when it’s your turn to ‘get the kettle on!’
Anyway, the small kettle was really light (100g apparently), but also robust.
It boiled quickly, and pouring was a dream, even from quite a height!
More importantly, the handle folds flat and even after boiling the kettle, was cool to the touch which eliminates any possible burns.
With a hardwearing coating, anglers who prefer something small and lightweight will really enjoy using the Wychwood Carpers Kettle – I know I did!
- 1.3L Capacity: 4 cups
- 1.3L Weight: 175g
- 0.8L Capacity: 2 cups
- 0.8L Weight: 100g
- Hard anodized easy clean aluminium
- Fold flat cool touch handle
- Suppled in a box
Saber Tuff Kettle
Made from lightweight aluminium, the Saber Tuff Kettle has a 0.9 litre capacity and weighs just 150g.
The fire resistant anodized coating ensures safety first, and makes it easy to clean after a hard days fishing.
A good bankside brew inside you gets you going for a productive session, and I enjoyed this with no flaking or tint tasted!
This kettle features a folding handle, so angers can pack this away compactly into neat and tidy mesh bag.
- Size: 153 x 67mm
- Capacity: 0.9L
- Weight: 150g
- Space saving fold flat handle
Chub NRG Kettle
The Chub NRG kettle has a cool ‘exhaust hole’ style designed to increase heat efficiency.
Weighing just 200g, like other carp kettles, this is also made from lightweight aluminium.
A capacity of 1 litre holds enough water for a couple of brews, and for cooking up some pasta or pouring into a pot noodle.
It looks very similar to the Fox Heat Transfer kettle we reviewed earlier, but slightly cheaper.
This is another kettle that is really compact enough to fit into a carryall.
For energy-efficient anglers amongst us, the Chub NRG Kettle is well worth a try!
- Made of lightweight aluminium
- 1.0L Content
- Energy gathering loop to improve heat efficiency
- Exhaust hole design
- Dimensions: 11cm L x 14.5cm W x 14.5cm H

Well, there we go.
That just about rounds up my handpicked, best carp kettles around at the moment.
