Customer Reviews of Light My Fire Spork
Excellent multi functional spork. Will be kept in my ski pack for day tours or overnight trips. Very lightweight which is very important when on extended tours. Great piece of kit, I'm sure it will get many years of use.
Cracking bit of kit. Weighs nothing and does a great job. Yes, as previously mentioned, it is a little flimsy if a small amount of care is not taken. But, it meets the requirements well. Easy to use, wash and find, as the colours are bright. Doesn't scratch crockery either! Perfect. I'm back to buy 4 more, for family camping, plus a spare, as at this price (less than a latte) you should always have a spare.
I've used the sporks for years now and their great! Lightweight, sturdy and effective for their purpose which is, eating of course ;) This bigger model with the sawtooth on the fork side is the best spork, there is a smaller version which I've broken several of so now I only use these bigger ones. I have one in my light 1p mealkit and several in my bigger 4p family mealkit. This tool is big enough to use in my cooking pots as well, but be aware of super hot frying pans - I've melted an edge of the fork on one of my sporks.
Love it. Perfect piece of travel cutlery. I've had this with me on my travels from Sweden to Nepal, and I don't see any reason not to continue doing so.
PROS: Cheap. Light. Durable. Doesn't scratch pots/pans. Bright colour helps finding the spork if dropped.
CONS: Not amazing at cutting - but that's why you carry a knife, so still five stars.
I've had some aluminium sporks but I prefer these ones, just bought two.
Them being made out of platic means they'll bend a bit more in your packpack it you just shove them in, and aren't as likely to damage your pack compared to something made from aluminium. They perform well, they're light .... but they do snap if you bend them too much. I alsotend to lose them :-( , but for the price, I think it's a very good choice.
Great little spork. I have two types of Spork - a titanium one which has lasted for ages and this one. Advantages of this one over the Ti one? A little lighter, has the knife bit (surprisingly useful!) and it's so cheap I'm less worried about losing it or destroying it. I've also bought these in the past as stocking filler gifts (though paid more for the first ones than what I paid for my last one from Facewest). Bargain!
This is a great bit of kit for any expedition, home or abroad.Very durable, hard warning and you don't need to bring any other cutlery.
I am a regular camper, spending pretty much every weekend in the outdoors, and I have had a few of these great little things before.
I love the fact that they are super lightweight, and still very functional, because it means that if I am going lightweight, I don't have to sacrifice functionality for the weight saving. They are ideal for eating dehydrated or boil in the bag meals.
After having a few of these now, there is only one problem that I have found, and that is with the apparently Ã¢â‚¬Ëœheat resistant' material that they are made from. In the past I have had a couple that have melted whilst cooking, which you can understand is a problem.
However with a bit of extra care this problem is easily avoidable! This is my 4th spork, and I am sure there will be many more to follow.
Good little invention, and great service as usual from facewest.
I am a keen camper and have also started running races requiring an overnight stop.This means I want lightweight cutlery that doesn't take up much room. This spork is very lightweight and fits inside my camping stove which keeps it secure and easy to find.It is useful to have both fork and a spoon but I sometimes wish they were both on the same end as with a conventional spork.This is because I find it hard to use with both ends in chunky shapes. Also if you use one end you can't then flip it round to use the other end straight away without getting mucky.
It is good though for occasional use when weight is important though I wouldn't like to use it everyday.
This is a great utensil. I own several of these as they are just so handy. The fork and spoon ends are perfect. The serrated knife part is fine for 'pushing' things apart but not really up to cutting- understandable on a multi-purpose utensil. The curved shape makes it very easy to pack and the bright colours make finding it more straightforward. The design of the fork and serrated teeth make it very unlikely to puncture your pack or kit. Great value item that I wouldn't be without.
It does the job but there's some relatively big cons to using it.
- The knife part is useless.
- If you have to use both the spoon and fork ends in the same meal you'll get food all over your hand because it's so short.
- Cheap as chips
- Light, you can easily bring one as a back up in your bag just in case you lose your metal one.
- Pretty sturdy. It survived a week in my smock pocket on exercise, other guys in the platoon have had ones for a couple of years - but it's fairly common for a tooth in the fork to break.
All in all it does all you need it to for Ã‚Â£2, but don't expect to carve roast dinners with it.
Light, Cheap and strong... What happened to the rule, Pick only two. It's all of the above. I use mine on every trip, the bright red shows up in the grass and the bottom of my bag and it does exactly what it says on the tin. Perfect.
I purchased this spork during my travels and used day after day for my meals on the road. The knife is not too sharp, but enough for easy-to-cut meals. When you really need to cut something hard you will need to use a real knife. The spoon and spork are great, but sometimes the food will get lost on the way to your mouth. Anyway, it full fill its purpose for one year. After one year of continuous use it broke in the hands of my girlfriend, so you have to consider that it's plastic and not break it. In general, I would recommend to purchase this item.
There are several types of sport in the market, but this one is the ultimate one. The design with having the spoon on one end and the fork on the other is just unbeatable. The fork on the spoon design renders the spoon function useless. The little serrations on the fork end are nice for cutting pasta, but otherwise go for a proper knife.
The Light My Fire spork uses a fork end, and a proper spoon end, which I think it's the best design out there. The serrations from the fork end do work on meat, but it's easier to use a knife and hold it with the spork. These serrations require to be careful on how you put the fork end in your mouth. And I just love the green colour...
A great bit of kit that will always be in my rucksack! You need nothing else to eat your food. I used my spark most recently in freezing conditions whilst snow holing in the Cairngorms and it was invaluable. No brainer - buy one!
Both lighter and cheaper than titanium. The best ideas are always the simplest. Don't look further.
And at this price why not make it one per group member with a different colour each?
Does everything it says on the 'tin'.
Lighter and cheaper than titanium.Ideal companion for your re-hydrated meals and brews.So light, cheap, and useful I have a few now and keep one in my business travel bag and one in my rucksack brew bag.
