Saratoga Jacks Fuel Disks are made from cedar and highly-refined wax. They are designed to burn for 30 minutes, can be extinguished and re-lit, 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.
Saratoga Jacks Fuel Disks 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. Saratoga Jacks Fuel Disks 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 its windy, rainy or snowy
- as a way to boil water
- as an air freshener for the car (do not light in the car)
Two of the greatest attributes of Saratoga Jacks Fuel Disks are the cedar's pleasant aroma and natural oils. These natural cedar oils protect the Fuel Disks from mold and mildew, which can develop over time on other non-cedar products. This gives the Saratoga Jacks Fuel Disks a virtually unlimited shelf life.
TO LIGHT: Using a match, light the edge of the fuel cell (in windy conditions, try breaking off a piece of the fuel cell and lighting it on top of the remaining fuel cell).
TO EXTINGUISH: You can extinguish the flame by smothering the fuel cell to remove its source of oxygen.
TO RE-LIGHT: You can easliy re-light the fuel cell by placing a match on top of the previously burned area.
Tip: Most meals only require about 15 minutes of burn time. To get the most out of your Saratoga Jacks Fuel Disk, you can break it in half and save half for later use.
