If your old outdoor eating utensil kit looks dull and drab from years of use and abuse, perhaps it is time to replace it with something more upbeat and colorful, like the UCO 4-Piece Mess Kit. Made from polypropylene and TPE materials, this set is specially designed for all your camping, hiking, backpacking, picnicking and all manners of outdoor meal needs.
Available in 3 different colors – Classic Blue (blue), Retro Sunrise (orange/yellow) and Venture (grey) – the UCO 4-Piece Mess Kit won’t look out of place as your kid’s school lunchbox. However, despite its fun and colorful looks, it is actually a very well designed camping mess kit.
For starters, it consists of a bowl/container, a lid/plate, a 3-in-1 eating utensil and a bungee tether that secures the utensil to the cover. The bowl is about 7 inch square and 1¾ inch deep while the lid/plate is slightly shallower. With the lid in place, the entire kit is about 2½ inch deep. Both are also covered in rubberized material to prevent them from slipping on a tabletop.
The 3-in-1 utensil has a spoon on one end and a serrated fork on the other end. Interestingly, the contours of the spoon are curver to match the inside of the container. This means you can easily scoop out that last bit of morsel or soup.
The lid forms a nearly watertight seal with the container. We said nearly because it may be airtight enough for you to transport liquid food from the cooking pot to your eating spot or use it to store salad together with dressing. However, you won’t be able to store soup in it and throw the container into your backpack without creating a mess.
Besides being a great mess kit, the UCO 4-Piece Mess Kit is also a great replacement for disposable eating ware. Last but not least, it is BPA and phthalate-free plus it is dishwasher and microwave-safe. Pair this with a complete outdoor cooking set and you have everything that you need to prepare and eat an outdoor meal.
