Optimus Sliding Long Spoon

rated 5 of 5 stars Keeps your finger and knuckles clean when stirring and reaching into freeze dried food pouches. I just used this spoon for the first time on a three-day trek in the Idaho Selkirks. A hiking buddy of mine and I complained last September while on a Glacier NP hike about eating out of freeze dried food pouches and getting your fingers and knuckles sticky and messy when stirring and reaching down inside the pouch. We were both using titanium sporks. We wondered if longer spoons were available. I discovered… Full review

humangear GoBites Duo

rated 5 of 5 stars GoBites Duo — One spork to rule them all. Ok, maybe just very well thought out, giving it a wide range of capability. Last winter, my job had me traveling near Paramus, N.J. That meant I had to visit the "Mecca" of my youth. Campmor.  Wandering around looking at things I couldn't find locally in Iowa, I ran across the GoBites Duo.  $7, OK, why not.   I have to say, this utensil set is durable, fairly compact and yet can get to the length needed to reach down into a bag of freeze dried food… Full review

humangear GoBites Uno

rated 5 of 5 stars After several breakages of the plastic Light My Fire spork, I decided to try the new GoBites Uno. Human Gear took the idea and improved on it. I know most people who have used the Light My Fire Spork have had to deal with breakage. It is a nice design, but just not durable.   As of this year, Human Gear has brought us the GoBites Uno. (Uno because they have a Duo and a Trio.) Durability is key with this spork. As you can see by the photos below, I used roughly the same amount of pressure on the… Full review

Optimus Sliding Long Spoon

rated 4.5 of 5 stars An extendable-handle spoon that's lightweight and perfect for reaching into the corners of food pouches. What an ingenious little spoon! Collapsed the Optimus Sliding Long Spoon is slightly less than 7 inches long. Fully extended it is 9.5 inches long.   Collapsed versus extended Weighing in at a paltry 25 grams, this little spoon is great for stirring your tea, eating soup, or digging into a bowl of your favorite breakfast cereal. Slide the handle into its extended position and, voila!,… Full review

REI Folding Utensil Set

rated 3.5 of 5 stars I originally bought these out of curiosity, but I have learned to respect these utensils. I bought these utensils as a curiosity, but I have found a good home for them.  Every time I have used them, I have found them more than adequate for utensils. The bowl is small for a spoon, and the thickness of the chopsticks are very thick.  The thickness of the chopsticks are throwing off my chopstick use, but with practice they will work fine.   The place were these shine is in packability. You can't… Full review

Camp Chef Pie Irons

rated 4 of 5 stars Works surprisingly well. When I was a kid, there were a couple of these things at a cabin my family had.  I wasn’t ever allowed to use them, so of course they fascinated me. I bought one at REI a short time ago and used it while car camping (it would be too heavy to carry) to make grilled cheese sandwiches over a campfire. It worked really well. The instructions said to butter the bread before putting it into the iron. Instead, I heated the iron over the coals and then used a stick of butter… Full review

Light My Fire Spork

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This is a great little tool. It is lightweight, but still strong. It is very handy because you don't need to carry three utensils, just one. Although it has one weakness, if you are trying to use the fork and the knife at the same time it is very hard to cut stuff. I like the colours. If you lose them they are very easy to find.

Sea to Summit Titanium Spork

rated 4 of 5 stars Ultralight, obviously, and nice long handle for stirring. Wish it had a slightly deeper bowl (easier to use with soup). This is obviously a pretty simple utensil, so there's not loads to say. Pack it somewhat carefully since it's probably not indestructible. As a spork it's obviously not ideal for either task, so if they made a long spoon with a deep bowl, and a smaller, longer-tined fork, I'd probably go with two separate utensils. Since the spoon though is still almost the same as this, it seems… Full review

MSR Alpine Folding Spatula

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Light and reliable, this folding spatula works well for flipping eggs and pancakes and can also be used to stir soups and fluids. For reasons of weight and time, I tend to rule out eggs and pancakes on longer trips, but on leisurely weekenders it can be nice to cook up some fresh yellow-eyes or a batch of cakes. That's when I bring along the MSR folding spatula. I've had it for at least five years now, and often just throw it in to a general purpose cooking kit when I'm not too worried about weight.
