Outlery Full Set

Elegant eating utensils in a pocket size box. Intended to displace single use plastics, Outlery can also add a little elegance to outdoor meals in a variety of settings but is too heavy for extended backpack trips. The box   In the box Judging by my review history, I seem to have an inordinate fondness for spoons, or maybe outdoor cutlery in general. The internet in its infinite acquisitive wisdom seems to know about this, and so channeled an ad for Outlery portable cutlery in my general direction. Full review

MSR Alpine Utensils Spatula

The end of the spatula melted the first time I cooked with it. Bacon and eggs for two in a stainless steel frying pan, nothing extreme.       Full review

Funktion plastic cheese slicer

A lightweight, plastic, Scandinavian-style cheese slicer for the trail. Makes no-mess-no-fuss, thin cheese slices for a cracker snack, sandwich, or burrito. Worth way more than its weight in cheese slices.   Scandinavian simplicity The humble one-piece cheese slicer is baked into the Scandinavian way of life. In Norwegian it’s called an ostehøvel which translates literally as “cheese plane,” which sounds cool so I’ll use that from now on.  The cheese plane was invented in 1925 by Norwegian… Full review

Light My Fire Spork Original

It's a cheap, plastic spoon, fork, and knife. Good design from a durable, food-grade plastic. I had never owned a spork—or anything similar. REI wanted just over a dollar...so I gave in, to curiosity. I never really understood why I needed special cutlery, for camping. I was once gifted an ancient, ex-army set—knife, fork, and spoon—made of aluminium and fitting together, but I've never put them/it in a backpack. I usually use a spoon, for everything but cutting and preferably one which fits… Full review

Toaks Titanium Long Handle Spoon with Polished Bowl

The best utensil I've ever used for freeze-dried meals. Right. So, Toaks versus Sea to Summit Alphalight. Both are extremely lightweight. Effectively the same length. Practically the same cost.  The differences, though minor, are in fact major.  Toaks is titanium, whereas StS is aluminum. Titanium is tougher than aluminum; aluminum will bend where titanium won't. Now, titanium can *break*, but so can aluminum once it has been bent a few times. So that's something of a wash. A difference, yes,… Full review

TiTo Titanium Long Handle Spork

I love this product. It is light, tough, and easy to clean, but most importantly it is the perfect length for reaching those last desperate morsels in the corners of your dehydrated food packet.  Full review

TiTo Titanium Long Handle Spork

Most sporks are a little too short. This one has a long handle and is lightweight so you can stir food easily and not lose your spork into the pot. I purchased this long handled spork after I lost my previous titanium spork on a hiking trip. This time I went for a long handle model which was a welcome upgrade for almost no real difference in weight in the overall scheme of things. It's also a good conversation starter about who was the most underrated of the Jackson Five.        Full review

Full Windsor Magware

Sporks are useless, get these instead. OK, let's get the ugly out of the way first. Sporks are stupid. Spork tines are so short to be practically useless. It is basically a two-headed spoon. And the knife? Seriously, how do you hold down what you are cutting? A utensil set is necessary if you are eating anything other than rehydrated meals. So... I went on a search, and saw products from the big names—Sea to Summit, MSR, etc... All had benefits and drawbacks. Happened across this Full Windsor… Full review

Toaks TiTongs Set

A flashy nylon connector transforms TOAKS' fork and spoon into a set of tongs, allowing one to handle light cooking chores with the tongs before pulling them apart to later eat with the utensils. A convenient and lightweight tool, best for light tasks such as cooking bacon or a chicken breast.   TOAKS TiTongs Set I suspect most cooks have had to improvise tongs at some point: I recall using a tablespoon and a fork once in a pseudo-chopsticks fashion to flip a chicken breast that I was cooking in… Full review
