      Comments about GUYOT DESIGNS Bowl and Cup Set:

      Light weight, easy to use, and easy to clean.

      Prefer this over other types of containers when backpacking.

      This is a replacement set for my son who has used the original set for four years. From weekend trips, to summer camps, to high adventure locations this product has held up well.

      Comments about GUYOT DESIGNS Bowl and Cup Set:

      This cup/bowl set is as it is described. Like the majority of reviewers (not at ems.com), I agree that the cup is rather small to be used as a cup. Likewise, the bowl is too huge to do double-duty as a cup. However, I use my cup as a measuring cup (filling it with water just shy of the seam is just the right amount for one serving of minute oats). Perhaps if measurements were molded into the inside, that would be a selling-point.

      The bowl is sturdy enough for "gloppy" foods (like hot cereal, casseroles, or thick stews. However, you have to be careful if it is filled with thin liquids (like water or broth). Holding the bowl the wrong way could result in you wearing your meal. Not an insurmountable problem...just something to be aware of.

      Likewise, the natural shape of these items is spherical. I don't know if flattening them in a pack could result in tearing. Mine tumble around loose in the daypack I take to and from work, so they don't get flattened much.

      The only metal utensil I've used on it was a spoon -- and at that, gently -- but I'd be very wary of using anything with an edge or a point (e.g., fork, knife, spork).

      However, my beef (and it's a deal-breaker) is that the cup/bowl picks up flavors. Wash by hand unless you enjoy the taste of dishwashing liquid. These things only took one or two trips through the dishwasher, and a year later, I'm STILL tasting dishwasher liquid. There's also a hint of Cinnabon Cream of Wheat that just won't go away either, even though I don't let food sit in the bowl (I heat, I eat, I wash with no dilly-dallying).

      Maybe if you only wash by hand, you'll be okay. Nevertheless, I'm going to try something from Sea To Summit's X-Bowl series as a replacement. If Guyot could lick the lingering-taste problem, I'd recommend. Until then...not so much.

        Comments about GUYOT DESIGNS Bowl and Cup Set:

        These bowls truly are the perfect solution to the old style mess kits that many of us remember from childhood.

        I used mine today for the first time for coffee and soup in 25 degree weather. They performed amazingly. The cup actually kept my coffee warm for about an hour! I was very impressed with how stable the cup and bowl were during the eating process (which, I admit, I was a bit concerned about when I bought them.)

        They also pack down extremely small, especially if you pack them down with paracord or some other type of string. As soon as you untie them, they spring back to their original stable shape.

        I highly recommend this set.

          I mainly use the cup for coffee and it's no problem handling the heat. It was not too hot to hold and actually seems to keep my coffee hot longer than other cups I have used. It's best to use two when using the cup especially when it's full because it's not ridged. The bowl is great too and folds up and fits inside the cup for packing.

            Comments about GUYOT DESIGNS Bowl and Cup Set:

            I was on a week-long tour of the Everglades by kayak and one of our group had a set of these bowls. AS SOON as I got home I ordered some for myself! Perfect for fitting into any tight space, they kept hands warm with hot tea in the cup, and such a snap to clean: you just turn them inside out. I can't speak to durability yet, but other silicon items I have had worked well but do age due to sun exposure.

            I suppose if there is any drawback, it might be the manufacturing process; I'm not sure how environmentally friendly silicone processing is. Take these on your next kayak/backpacking trip and EVERYONE will want them!

              Nothing beats this. It can be folded and twisted into any shaped and then shoved in the smallest space in your pack. And just as easy as it was to fold up, it unfolds back into its original shape. genius. On a side note, the sizes are perfect and they can keeps your hands warm when you have hot liquids in them.

                This set turned out to be great on our week-long kayak trip. Small, light. I used the cup for side dishes and the bowl for my main food. Cup also did a good job holding coffee, allowing enough heat through the rubber to warm your hands. Seems durable, but only time will tell. Wipes clean in seconds. Retains shape after being shoved in a dry hatch all day.
