    These are great not only for heating up your mre's , but also for warmth when you don't want to be seen by smoke from a fire and they make it very easy to start a nice big fire when there is not a lot of tinder around!

    I got some of these to go along with some individual MRE entrees that did not come with their own heaters. Very handy and easy to use. I have not done this, but I can imagine they could also heat up a cup up liquid if placed on top of it while you are heating your food.

    These are a must have for MRE's. Yes they can be a little pricey but it beats eating cold MRE's if you have to. These travel very well too and dont require fire either, which I think makes them better than fuel tablets and a travel stove.

    Most MREs only come with one of these and it really makes things nicer to have an extra one so you dont have to eat them cold. They don't weigh much and the extra convenience is way worth it. Store them someplace cool though, I left some in the garage all summer and they stopped working.

    These are just like the MRE heaters sold in multi packs. They are cheaper per unit if you purchase a multi pack. Otherwise, these things are great if you want to turn your MRE into a hot meal! Just add water, wait a couple minutes and your hot meal awaits you!

      • The Science Behind MREs

        In the late 1990s, the military had a wide variety of ready-to-eat meals (MREs) at their disposal. They had created a line of foods that were served up in pouches and ready to eat anywhere in the battlefield. They could be dropped from 100 feet and be ripped open immediately for consumption. However, there were a ...
