Light My Fire Spork Review
Spork? For some of you, this word may be a tad foreign. However, Light My Fire is attempting to make the word and their product, sporks, a household, or shall I say campground favorite. Light My Fire hired Scandinavian designer Joachim Nordwal to aid in product development. The end result, an extremely handy combination of a spoon, fork, and knife; each spork has a spoon on one edged and a knife on the opposite side (see photo above). This combo allows you to to decrease the number of utensils you have to keep track of in your pack, decrease dish washing time after supper, and ultimately decrease the amount of weight (even if just ounces) that you carry out on the trail-off to work-or while on a picnic.
These sporks are heat resistant, which we can attest to. We washed our sporks multiple times in the dishwasher and utilized the heat dry setting and they came out looking just like new. We also have used the sporks to aid with our campground cooking of mashed potatoes and stirring various other hot, or near boiling liquids. Each time, the spork retained its’ sleek shape. The sporks also are quite durable and have survived their time in the bottom of a pack, as well as some bending back and forth at home.
Light My Fire’s sporks come in 19 colors in the plastic model and is also available in a titanium version. The sporks also come in a variety of sizes. The Little Spork, the smallest, states that it is good for toddlers and those with small hands. I personally loved the little spork for eating my yogurt and salad while at work because it is compact, reusable, and came in 3 fun colors. The Little Spork does not actually have a knife edge on it, making it safer for little ones; the prongs that act like a fork seem a bit sharp for super young ones, use your own judgment. The Adult Spork is a tad larger, see below for specs, and features the knife edge; we used the Adult Spork as a cooking and eating utensil. The Spork XM is the supped up spork, featuring greater durability, surface area, length, and the sharpest cutting edge. With that said, the knife will not be cutting any cans, but can easily handle peaches, pears, some veggies, and even a baguette if you are patient. The extra length keeps your hands clean and protected and is great for stirring and turning items on the grill. Overall, a fun new addition to our camp kitchen.
