I just purchased the spatula for a trip in moab. I usually just bring a bamboo spoon to cook with but forgot it on this trip. The spatula seemed like it would work well, but only if your planning to serve and not cook with it. The first pancake i flipped the plastic started to melt. I wasnt pleased with the fact that it was melting after the first use so I just tossed it. Would not recommend it unless you like plastic in your food.
