QuickStove Emergency Fire Starters are an ideal fuel source for portable wood burning stoves. Made of wood and highly refined wax, 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 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

TO LIGHT: Using a match, light the edge of the QuickStove Fire Starter (in windy conditions, try breaking off a piece and lighting it on top of the remaining disk).
