The heater is a simple combination of powdered food grade iron and magnesium, salt, and water.

When water is poured onto the included heater pad, the heater releases enough heat to warm-up the pre-cooked meal to 100+ degrees Fahrenheit in approximately 12 minutes.

Here’s how to use them;

Step 1

Open carton and retrieve meal pouch. Tear open heater sleeve at top arrow.

Step 2

Insert the unopened meal pouch into the heater sleeve.

Step 3
Pour approximately one ounce water into the heater sleeve directly onto the heating element and up to the level indicator.

Step 4

Fold the sleeve over the meal. Lay meal flat on surface with fold facing upward and heating element on bottom.

Step 5

Slide the heater sleeve into the carton, unopened end first. Prop the carton against an angled surface to allow steam to rise.

Step 6

After 10-12 minutes, the meal is fully heated. Remove the sleeve, tear where indicated and slide out the meal pouch.

Step 7

Be careful - the contents are hot! Open the meal pouch and you're ready to eat!

Please Note: Once you've applied the water solution, the unit will become activated and produce heat and steam. Used Food Heaters are non-toxic and may be thrown in the trash. They do not produce Carbon Monoxide, but may activate CO detectors. Use in a well-ventilated area on a heat-safe surface. Keep out of reach of children.

*Add more salt to solution in increase heat and decrease cooking time
