The Thermette weighs only 1.7 kgs. This very clever design has a unique copper cone shaped cylinder that holds the water. From a small fire at its base, heat is distributed fast to the surfaces surrounding the water that will start boiling rapidly. The heat generated also funnels out of the top of the cylinder that makes it a very efficient way to cook your eggs any style with a side of bacon.
A stainless steel cooking ring is included with your Thermette from wilsonandco.co.nz.
We have sold hundreds of Thermettes to happy customers in New Zealand and all over the world including Australia, United States and Europe.
The Thermette, invented in 1929 by New Zealander, John Ashley Hart, quickly became a New Zealand icon. It was during the Second World War that the Thermette became affectionately known as the `Benghazi Boiler’.
A treasured piece of equipment in the field for the New Zealand Army Soldiers fighting in Libya and other countries in North Africa. For generations since, the humble and practical Thermette has accompanied many adventures all over New Zealand bringing much joy.
