Fire Starter Fuel Disk
Essential for emergency preparedness. Ideal for wood-burning stoves. Convenient for starting a fire and heating or cooking food. Made of cedar. Can be stored indefinitely.
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 have a virtually unlimited shelf life and 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
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).
Most meals require only 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.
QuickStove Fire Starters are designed to burn for 30-45 minutes each.
The Fire Starters can be extinguished and relit. However, we recommend breaking the Fire Starter in half if you need to cook only for a few minutes.
QuickStove Fire Starters can be stored indefinitely. Unlike other fuel sources, QuickStove Fire Starters are nontoxic and are NOT subject to legal storage limits.
“These fuel disks are very heavy yet have done a good job burning in almost any condition. I have tried them in rain, snow and wind and they lit up easily and stayed lit. … This would be a great addition for a two year food storage program or a bug out bag. Get extra-you won't regret it!!” – Struan
