    Hmm, I'm thinking about this as I was going to buy a stainless Kelly Kettle, rather than anodised. I'm not as keen on the idea of an anodised one, but have I got that wrong?

    Well I'm still waiting for the above to arrive (Varanger tent and Gstove), which isn't good as it's giving me too much time to ponder over the decision! I'm now thinking I should maybe get the...
