What's it made out of, and how secure are the two materials?
On our plastic sporks, the hard plastic is a custom polypropylene plastic, and the "rubber" is a special FDA food-safe elastomer that's specially designed to resist staining, scratching, and tearing. During the molding process the two materials bond together at a molecular level for an incredibly strong bond. It's similar to the construction of a fancy rubber-grip toothbrush.
Our metal sporks are made from hard anodized 7075-T6 aluminum and high temp silicone. This metal alloy is extremely strong and is lighter than titanium.
How hot can it handle?
Our plastic sporks are safe for boiling water and dishwashers, but are not intended for ultra high-temp uses like scraping a hot pan.or direct heat.
Our metal and silicone sporks are safe for high temp and can be used for cooking in a hot pan.
Is it dishwasher safe?
Our plastic sporks are safe for dishwashers.
Our metal and silicone sporks MUST BE HAND WASHED. Dishwashers will destroy the hard anodize coating.
What if I'm a lefty?
Have no fear! Morsel was designed to scrape in both directions, clockwise and counter-clockwise, so it actually works pretty well with your left hand! We actually debated, as right handers, which direction the spoon should point - because it works so well both ways!
How tough is it?
Morsel is pretty darn tough, but it's still plastic. We made Morsel thicker and stronger than other camping utensils, because we were sick of breaking handles, but it's still not invincible. If you're literally trying to break Morsel, you'll probably succeed. If you're using it like a utensil, it should last for many, many years.
