Heat cell works!

I have used these with the folding stove. Worked great with small perk coffee pot. About 2 - 3 cups of water boiled in 15 minutes. They are easy and safe to store and carry in bug out bag and in auto emergency bag.
For peace of mind, I've got 2 of the stoves and a dozen heat cells. Very pleased.

An OK cooking source

These heat cells are handy to have but are not that great at cooking. I have not been able to boil any water with these. Around thirty minutes a cup and a half of water was stuck at 190 degrees. With a little alcohol stove i can boil the same amount of water in 5 minutes. Yes these will get the job done and they are cheap and great to have but dont expect them to be as good or better than other cookers.

{Response from Emergency Essentials - Thanks Will. You are correct in that this fuel creates a medium intensity heat compared to a gas stove as their design is longer duration at cooking temperatures. This helps to cook for 4 hours, or keep foods warm for 9 hours. Similar cans are used in catering and buffets to keep foods hot. Gas stoves are higher intensity with shorter burn time (better for boiling)

I ordered one of these to see if I could use it as an alternative to storing lots of propane and other fuels. The small stove worked great, it is very sturdy and designed well to protect flame from wind if out doors, the heat cell was so simple to use, pop off lid and light. It boiled 1 cup of water in about 15 minutes and 2 cups of water in 20 minutes. I cooked several things with it. It did takes an additional 20 minutes to cook rice, about 12 minutes for pasta. This is a good product for smaller amounts if your trying to conserve fuel. If you are really wanting to conserve the burn time, this item is perfect for instant foods that need rewarming, hot water, and short boiling time, ie instant...oatmeal, rice, soup, hot chocolate. It would be great in a 72 hour kit or long term use!
