I will admit, this is my first experience with esbit, but I was not impressed at all. For being so small and compact, I wasn't expecting a 6 burner Wolf range, but it let me down. I bought it along with a pack of tabs from BPL. Upon receiving it, took it out back, lit the esbit tab, and placed my snowpeak solo 700 pot and lid with 16oz of tap water. The tab burned out completely, and it wasn't even boiling, I'd say it was about 3/4 of the way. Some small bubbles where just forming along the base of the pot. I'll admit there was a intermittent light breeze, but nothing serious. I will give it another try in the future, but no way do I trust this thing to make it my field stove. Maybe a backup.
