No backcountry traveler should be forced to eat fart-inducing freeze-dried meals, so take some time and gourmet it up in the backcountry with the help of the MSR Alpine Folding Utensils. The lightweight, compact spoon, spatula, and strainer won't scratch or ding nonstick pots and pans.

  • Spatula has a serrated edge that can be used to cut cheese and soft meat
  • Spoon is calibrated for common measurements
  • Grater/strainer has a curved ridge in the middle to fit pot rims for efficient straining, and the holes double as a cheese grater
  • All three utensils fold by simply squeezing the handle so they're easy to pack and they won't fold over in the middle of serving or stirring
  • Spatula, spoon, and strainer/grater each sold separately

grate expectations

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

The grater/strainer packs small and is reasonably durable, although not the most durable thing out there. The grater works surprisingly well and definitely takes some tedium out of cheese-shredding in the bush. The spatula function is ok but the thickness of the edge is such that really working it under things can be a little bit difficult. This is a minor criticism though.

Don't rely on this thing to relieve a camping trip of farts though. I mean, the reprieve from freeze-dried food is welcome, but if fart-avoidance is your highest priority I suggest diversifying your methods.


  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I was gifted each of these MSR utensils for Christmas. I really love the strainer/grater utensil, it works well for pasta night in the backcountry. I do feel like all these utensils are not the most durable/strong on the market. I quickly upgraded to the GSI utensils with the pivot for a more durable product. I still use these MSRs from time to time, I mainly have them around the house for backup. They are very lightweight and pack down well.
