I have a few different kinds of travel utensils, and I do like bamboo a lot. These have been through the dishwasher and survived just fine. The fork is pointy enough to easily spear food, and the knife is serrated enough to cut meat. The bowl of the spoon isn't very deep, so slurping soup might not be really easy, but it's sturdy and will transport your mashed potatoes or pudding easily.
When you first take the fork or spoon out of the package (when it's nice and dry) it doesn't slide very easily against your lips. Once you've been using it a while, especially if the food is saucy like yummy orange chicken!) it slides a little better. There wasn't a problem with splinters - the wood is really smooth, it's just not as slidey as plastic or metal.
I don't like the straw as much, though there wasn't a problem with it. I could taste the wood when I tried, but I honestly don't remember trying to taste a plastic straw before. After a few sips, I didn't notice. I like reusable plastic straws better, but this was OK.
This is going to so come in handy when we go to WDW in a few months!
My daughter has sensory issues with metal silverware and always requests plastic. I really hate single use plastic, and the multi use stuff just wasn't cutting it. I bought these for her and she is ecstatic! She says they feel much better, and she loves that the set is just for her. I taught her how to wash it right after use and they are holding up well with daily use.
Simply perfect and really cute
I bought 3 of these-- one for each of my kids and then myself. Instead of plastic utensils for school or taking my good cutlery, I decided to buy these... So glad I did, so nice to have mine at work so if I do lunches I don't have to use plastic and its right there!!!
The quality of this set is so good. And the packaging is so cute. It actually makes for a lovely gift. I already plan to get a couple more to send as gifts.
Keep up the amazing work!
