Brilliant. Just brilliant. A complete hot meal in one packet. No need for water (there is a sachet included) No need for a stove. Simple to use, you just remove outer packaging put the meal bag, along with the water from the sachet, into the bag containing the heating pad and leave it for 10-15 minutes. You can then get on with walking, setting up camp, or just admiring the view. At £5.50 a meal, definitely an expensive single source of sustenance ( I still always carry a stove) but ideal as eme

UK Match Angler.com have great things to say about our HeaterMeals
As part of the ‘bivvy banquetting’ series featured on UK Match Angler, I thought I’d have a look at these offerings prepared by Crosse & Blackwell, supplied by www.heatermeals.co.uk.
Obviously, there is no need to carry a stove, burner or heat source of any kind; the food has an extremely long shelf life, suitable to throw in the car or van and forget about until really needed, it provides hot food in potentially dangerous weather conditions and the used generator can serve as a hand or body warmer when cooking is complete! There are many varieties available, so I’ve picked just one to investigate.....
www.heatermeals.co.uk has a comprehensive range of ready meals on their website, including vegetarian and halal options to cater for every option; today I’ve sampled the Beef Ravioli in Mushroom gravy.
Supplied in a handy pack with a spoon and instructions, it’s a simple way to get hot food quickly. Opening the packaging reveals a pouch of food, a small ‘bag’ of saline solution and the sleeve containing the chemical generator. The basic premise is that the food is placed in the sleeve with the generator, and the saline solution added before the whole thing is sealed for 10-12 minutes to heat up as the chemical reaction is initiated. Once the required time has elapsed, the meal pouch is removed and the top torn open to allow access to the food within; simple. Be warned though, these do get very hot!
The picture on the front of Beef Ravioli bore no resemblance to my meal as the company choose to use a generic food image, so don’t be too surprised! Once prepared, the food was very tasty, didn’t leak from the container, and had plenty of sauce, so wasn’t dry in any way. Many of the self heating meals from other brands can suffer uneven heating if not placed on a flat surface, but this was completely hot throughout and took exactly the time stated to be ready. In colder weather, users are advised to leave for a couple of extra minutes, but even extremely low temperatures do not affect the preparation of heatermeals.
They are an excellent option for a standby meal when you forget to fuel your stove or run out of gas!
