GSI Outdoors Essential Travel Spoon

Spatula spoon

Brand: GSI Outdoors

Model: Essential Travel Spoon

Why we like it: Silicone edges help clean your dishes.

Design:The spoon’s spatula-inspired silicone tip is so good at scraping dishes that one editor also used hers at home for scooping smoothies out of the blender. “I used to shop for camping bowls by checking if I could lick them,” she confesses. “But now that I have this guy, I don’t have to.” The spoon’s nylon handle and inner skeleton proved stiff enough to scoop cold peanut butter without bending.

Durability: One sample survived nearly a year of frequent use (including dishwasher cleaning) without a scratch, but a second suffered serious wounds from a can lid.
