Utility Flame; Does it work?
Yes it does!
This is my first experience using a flammable gel.
I hit on a way to focus the flame vs pooling it on a flat surface. One 1.25 ounce pouch will fill two tea light candle cups! (Candle removed of course.)
I did a head to head test pitting my Esbit cook set stove against an Esbit folder stove heating a Coleman Max cook set. 16 ounces of cold tap water in each. The Utility Flame in this configuration burned for 15 minutes of usable time bringing the water in the Coleman to a boil and hot in the Esbit.
Best of all; no nasty residue like the Esbit fuel tabs! What residue there was on the bottom of the pots wiped off easily. Focusing the gel flame this way nets two uses per pouch. I am getting more!
