There is a learning curve with folding these pieces, but minimalist camping and hiking is all about being prepared and knowing your equipment in-and-out. The reward for mastering these sets are car-camping luxuries in an- ultralight, maintenance free package.The whole set disappears in my pack. Brilliant

I have over the years bought 2 of the Orikaso Dinner Sets and used them on almost every trip I have taken. As they weigh almost nothing you can make sure everyone has their own dishes and cups on your trip.
When you buy them make sure that you learn how to fold them in your sleep and I learned you should also know how to fold them in the dark, because if you don't do it just right there will be leaks. Cleaning is very simple as you just have to wipe them down as there is no nooks for food to get stuck in.
My old model had snap buttons, that made sure your folding job was held in place better the new ones don't have the snaps.
Lastly, if you use them often, you should replace them about once a year; The groves your knife makes while cutting on the plate can hold food particles if not cleaned perfectly but when they are newer that is not an issue.

These things are incredibly lightweight. They take up no space in a pack. They are difficult to put together at first. I liked them, but found myself, in planning my next trip, not wanting to bring them.
I began the search for a new set of plates and bowls, looked at many different ones from many different manufacturers and ended up settling on bringing my Orikasos again. I couldn't find anything else that was as lightweight or was the size of a normal plate. Everything else out there is tiny.
I cant give this a 5 or ever 4 star because they seem disposable. YET, I haven't found anything else I like more!
