By myself cooking daily tea, dinner, and the odd other meal, a container of heet lasted me a week. Cooking for two and that's almost doubled due to the larger volumes. Wind will also do a number on your efficiency if your windbreak is not so great.

I wouldn't go back to Sterno though - I can find the heet more places for cheap and I think it burns hotter.

+1 I have set myself on fire more than once... Especially be careful if it's windy!
