Hi guys, I'm new to this forum and found this site really very helpful. 

 I came across this cool looking kitchen gear. The MSR Alipine Folding Utensils and Im just wondering if some of you here have actually use it. Im interested to get one but Im a bit concern of it durability and how it can tolerate the heat. Will it not melt if I use it on cooking eggs and bacon?

Hi Elmer. I believe these are made of a polymer that can handle up to 400 degrees, but I can't find the specs anywhere. I would email MSR directly and ask. Sorry I couldn't be more help.

I have MSR's folding spork:

...and it has held up well.

For your use as stated above I believe they should do fine but I personally wouldn't let any of them hang out in you pot or pan for any extended time period while your burner is on blast.

I might suggest that you consider the Guyot designs utensils or Microbites. Look them up on this site. Fantastic products. Mar has a lifetime warranty on their utensils as well. Good luck
