Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works fine for me Not sure why people are saying these break easily. Granted, I never tried to eat/cut a sirloin with it, but I've been using these while motorcycle camping for several years now with no issues. I had four, but have gradually lost all but one (which is sitting in my coffee cup at the moment). My only gripe is that if you need a spoon AND a fork, and you only have one utensil...your hand is gettin' sticky! LOL Seriously though, they're light, pack easy, don't transfer heat...what's not to love? If you're eating camping food, these work great.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good price but ok quality I really liked this product, having bought two sets. I like that it does not cost much, but the fact that I had to buy another set is making me want to look for something else. The durability is an issue, I have had a few break through use, though that has mainly been from using it with very solid or heavy foods. I have also had one break from being in my backpack. I will say that I like the design, with a full spoon on one side and a full fork/knife on the other. The only design flaw I see is the weak middle, which is where all of mine have broken. I would recommend this if your okay with the eventual breakage but cheap replacement price, though I think a Ti spork would be better.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Good for one trip This was good for its first trip out, just an overnight. On its second multi-day trip it broke the first night. I used the individual halves that night and then they broke again and again. I ended up using a piece of bark as a spoon because it broke in half. This thing reminded me of that "chewing gum" that came in a pack of baseball cards - it just ended up crumbling. And trust me, it was handled and stored carefully. Simply garbage.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Twice Broken Gave this product the benefit of the doubt after the first one broke on me from a few months of occasional use. Although both were taken care of, both broke in the middle. My last one only had about 9-10 uses to it. I don't like to give bad reviews but its unfortunate to have to go this direction to help guide others to the right. Hope the company will fix this common issue!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cute but not worth the money I loved the idea until I tried it. Now I don't. The tines are very difficult to clean between. I have to use a knife or spatula to dig food out from between them. Wash your hands well and disinfect them before using this tool because when you're using the spoon you're holding the tinnes of the fork and vice versa. If your hands aren't clean... The spoon holds next to no liguid at all and if you're cold and shivering forget about getting any liquid close to your mouth. Better to buy a bunch of cheap plastic spoons and forks that hold some liquid are easier to clean and that, horrors, you can simply recycle when you're tired of cleaning them. Better yet, get some bigger cooking spoons and eat with those.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my favorites I use the spork at home, work, and when car camping. I have Parkinson's, and find the design of the flat handle and wide spoon let me get a goodly amount of soup up to my mouth without spilling. At home, they're primarily mine, and I use them for soup and snacking. I've had no problem with durability, other than one that shattered when one of the kids stepped on it in the car (can't fault it for that). The home sporks have gone through the dishwasher repeatedly. The ones at work are washed daily. Our camping ones are used by everyone and are toted in a plastic box with other cutlery, hand washed, air dried. None have broken. I agree, though, that it's not very good for cutting. Use a real knife if that's your intent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Always worked well for us We've only used this for car camping. We have a couple sets of titanium utensils, but dare not use them on our non-stick (car)camping cookset. Good for eating out of the pan, and for kids. We've not had one break yet, and have had them a couple of years. I store them in a cloth bag inside of a rubbermaid tote with our camping gear. Neither the storage, transport, or use has damaged them. Kids haven't damaged or lost them either. We are vegetarian, so there isn't any steak cutting, or anything of the sort going on around here. The bright colors make them easier to find than our titanium utensils when dropped on the ground, or accidentally poured out in the wash water. Far sturdier than disposable utensils. No complaints.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mostly great! I bought this set about 3 years ago. The colors are cute! They're also functional. I use them regularly while backpacking and car camping in groups, and one I keep with my daily lunch bag. That one broke after 2.5 years of daily use. Not too bad, honestly. As others have mentioned, the knife is useless. And, if you're not careful when using the fork, you can do some damage to your lip/mouth. They nest together and hardly take up any room in a pack. I prefer them to every other utensil set I've used. All in all, a great little set, and inexpensive.
