so for one bowl, i use 3 coals.

dont get me wrong... i love these coals, but this just happened to be a defect. has anyone else had something similar happen?
Um... Why do you use lighter fluid to light instant lights?
nm... i see that you are talking about lighter fluid in a lighter and not pouring it on the coals, sorry long night at work....
ps. I wouldn't stack them anymore. I think it would be better to light them side by side and have them on a flat surface and waste an additional 7 seconds worth of lighter fluid than to get one that explodes all over the place, with the possibility of knocking the other two down in the process. I hate quick lights that crumble (well actually any coal that crumbles) and quick lights are the worse about shattering and leaving thousands of pock marks in your floors/ counters/ and carpets.
