Quite expensive at 10 for five fuel bags and 30 for a tupperware box

But it does give a flameless & microwaveless option

Having said that, I like Nos's curry and meatballs in a flask method, never fails
now waits for Willk to tell us how to make our own fuel bags !

Oh yeah, I see where you where headed now. I was VERY puzzled as I had been doing just that very thing at work a while back, but I had kept the "experiment" absolutely QT. I use fairly large amount of Calcium Chloride in my daily do and it's as cheap as chips. It does this lovely exothermic reaction thingy when you add water. However, empirical testing demonstrated that while you can melt the @rse out of a plastic bucket, it won't cut it on the hills. I believe the real thing uses calcium oxide.

I use a Trangia 27, pared back to the bare essentials. It isn't the lightest or fastest system, but it is bulletproof and will work in any conditions. 250ml of fuel will see me through a 36 hour hike with spare to heat that last emergency mealie & a hot chocolate

PS: Polwart is the REAL Chemical Expert!

Just found another review and I must say I am quite intrigued...

Surly this means you can keep a cooker, fuel and food on board and if you ever needed it all you have to do is add water?

Sounds like a no brainer to me..

Here's the review:

They do wind up torches, so why don't they do wind up micro waves...

The winder could be rigged up to the prop, plenty power for the micro wave
