To-Go Ware Bamboo Utensil Set
Pros: Beautiful cases, made from bamboo
I bought these To Go Ware sets two years ago the the SF Green Festival for Christmas presents. THey're really great. They come with a fork, spoon, knife, and chop sticks all wrapped up in a little carrying case with pretty designs. They are very light weight and they're much nicer to use than plastic! Perfect for picnics.
Pros: perfectly packaged for work, and on the go
Cons: no cons
Hello, I purchased this set a few months ago and am very happy with it. I take it absoutly everywhere with me and love how strong and durable the bamboo is.
Now if only I had seen it on www.ecosteal.com I would have been able to purchase it for 40% off, but regardless, it is worth the full price that I paid.
Pros: Not plastic, reusable, bamboo, carrying case
Cons: A little clumsy to use, knife isn't (duh) sharp, fork is isn't great for salad
I love the idea of this set, but actually using them is not quite as good as the idea. I ate a salad with my set and toward the end nearly resorted to my fingers. I would definitely pick these over plastic no matter what. Maybe I should have resorted to the chop sticks.
Pros: Reusable, made from bamboo, pretty little cases
Cons: Chopsticks slip out sometimes
I got one of these To-Go Ware sets last year at the SF Green Festival. At that point, they only had the WEAVE sets available, so that's the kind I have. I'm a fan, for sure. I really like using bamboo utensils over plastic (and while biodegradable stuff is handy sometimes...you don't have to worry about your spoon melting or curling when you stick it in your hot coffee). The cases for the utensils are also quite beautiful and I appreciate the socially conscious aspect of them (i.e. sourcing the WEAVE cases from a women's cooperative in Burma). And it's a bonus that you get chopsticks too.
Now, just a little hint for those of you with a WEAVE case...I'd recommend double knotting the tie. If you just loosely single knot it, your utensils are prone to slipping out (and the tie is thick enough that there's very little worry of double-knotting and not being able to untie it again). Oh, and the only other drawback is that the bowl of the spoon isn't very deep so it doesn't make the best soup spoon. But on the whole, I would definitely recommend them.
