Great Product (when used correctly)First, boiling is not considered a practical water purification method by experienced outdoors people. It requires to much time and fuel.
Second, I really wish the first reviewer had told us the type of stove, etc. they were using.
On and off for 20 years I've used various Coghlan's and other brands of hexamine fuel tabs with a tuna can stove, small pot AND A WIND SCREEN to boil water for tea, instant oatmeal and freeze dried meals even as high as 10,000 ft elevation. Managed properly this product is a lightweight, inexpensive alternative to liquid fuel and canister stoves. Most of the commercial stoves sold for solid fuel are too heavy and bulky to be much use. There are some great, easy-to-make, lightweight solid fuel stove designs free online.

Don't waste your moneyIn 70F dry conditions at 3,000 ft elevation, it took 4 of these tablets to get a 1/2 quart of water WARM (not boiling!) We could never get the water to boil so forget about using these for water purification as they just do not seem to burn hot enough. All of our dehydrated meals were quazi-crunchy as we could not get the water hot enough to get the noodles to absorb the water.
