QuickStove Fire Starters are made from wood and highly-refined wax. They are designed to burn for 30 minutes and can boil water in less than 5 minutes. They are completely waterproof and will ignite in seconds, making them great for emergency preparedness, for camping, or as a fuel source for any outdoor wood burning stove.
QuickStove Fire Starters are best for cooking, and work very well in portable wood-burning stoves. They are designed to light easily and to burn hot. Since most meals take less than 30 minutes to cook, they are a perfect solution as an emergency source of heat for cooking. QuickStove Fire Starters can also be used –
- as a fire starter
- as an emergency fuel source when hiking, camping or in the outdoors
- as an emergency heat source during cold weather
- as a dry, easy-to-burn fuel when it’s windy, rainy or snowy
- as a way to boil water
QuickStove Fire Starters have a virtually unlimited shelf life.
TO LIGHT: Using a match, light the edge of the Fire Starter (in windy conditions, try breaking off a piece and lighting it on top of the remaining disk).
Tip: Most meals only require about 15 minutes of burn time. To get the most out of your QuickStove Fire Starter, you can break it in half and save half for later use.
