Thermette – Original Tin
Out of stock
YES, the original Tin Thermette
Don’t get us wrong; we love the copper Thermette for it’s super conductive qualities and the fact that it won’t corrode. But hey, not all of us live on Champagne budgets.
The Tin Thermette still boils 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.
Thermette is proudly made in New Zealand
Tin does rust so it is important that you dry your Tin Thermette thoroughly before storing. The best drying method is to empty the water while it is still hot and place the Thermette upside down for 5 minutes.

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 `Benghasi Boiler’ and became a treasured piece of equipment in the harsh environment of the desert. Camp sites 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 sometime until they learnt that it was only New Zealand troop camps that left this distinctive tell tale sign.
