    REI Members get back an estimated 10% on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    Questions? Call us at 1-800-426-4840 for more about your dividend or its redemption.

    by fromGreat little accessory Great addition to your camping gear! I've only used it once but it's exactly what I wanted. Perfect for those of us who have to have marshmallows or s'mores with a campfire. After I lost 1/2 a marshmallow to the stick (it was the best I could find) I was really excited to find this!!

    by fromHow innovative! What's a family camping trip without hotdogs and smores. This works great and is incredibly small, light, and useful! This makes finding the right stick a breeze! The plastic prong cover is great so I can pack it up and not worry about it damaging anything. Gotta give it up to this grandpa ~ he was one cool guy!

    by fromA product you tell friends about This is such a great little product! We bought one for each of the four of us, but have only ever used two at a time. They work so well, that you can cook over a fire very quickly and easily — we've never had to have all four used at once. Finding a stick that fits well takes a bit of trial and error, but the design allows for enough variety of diameter that a wide array of sticks will do the job. It's a far superior solution to either finding and carving a green branch or hauling around fire forks, in my opinion. We've cooked marshmallows, brats and hot dogs — haven't used it as a fire-poker, though. You can fit a regular-size marshmallow on each prong at the same time, with just enough space for some heat to move in between the two. With brats and dogs, the key is to squeeze just enough provide a tiny bit of tension to keep the meat secured to the prongs, but not so much as to release the tension on the end of the stick. The wire tends to get charred and messy ('specially with mallows), but the safety cap does a good job of containing any sticky mess throwing both in the dishwasher back home makes it nice and clean for next time.

    by fromGreat Idea, But . . . This is a great idea, but it doesn't grip a stick as well as needed to handle the weight of hot dogs (the fork rolls on the stick and the hot dog falls off). It would probably work for marshmallows but the first night out meal of hot dogs was a failure using this product.
