5 Very usefulLouimann1 | 06/05/2011 | See all Louimann1's reviews (7)Top 10 Sport and Outdoor Reviewer Hexi-Stoves are brilliant. Small, and still able to cook boil-in-the-bags and boil water quickly. They're very simple to use with a efficient design that stores the fuel inside the stove securely. Slight downside is the state it leaves your mess tins in, but that's easily removable with warm soapy water - or wetwipes if in the field! Now whilst I would prefer cooking with gas, this is a brilliant solution if you have limited space - ie. in a day sack / webbing; or if you just want the simplicity of the thing.A few tips for you:- The hexi tablets can be very awkward to light. Some solutions can be ripping a bit of the cardboard packaging, light that and place on the tablets. Or a very efficient way I've recently discovered. Squirt a bit of the alcoholic hand wash stuff over the tablets, it burns and sets the stove going nicely.- Make sure there is circulation - The fumes are highly poisonous, so don't use them in confinded rooms.
