Lightweight, Stains, Hard to Clean

I used the set last week on a 4 day Grand Canyon Trip. Worked fine for me. Used both spoon and fork with Freeze Dried Meals and they usually include some kind of powder for spicing and flavoring and it was next to impossible to clean the spoon/fork after the initial stir. After eating, I work on them with my knife and finger nails for 30 minutes to get all the stuff off (especially cheezy stuff). They are permanently stained the color of the first freeze dried meal I stirred. Stains not a big deal just bothersome. I accidentally left the spoon in the holder on the side of the jetboil when heating water and it melted even though the neoprene jetboil cover did not.

Good: Collapsible, lightweight, fits in jetboil stuff
Cons: Hard to Clean, susceptible to melting
