For almost forty years, the Swedish company Wildo has been specializing in the development and production of light tourist dishes and sets of dishes made of plastic and rubber plastics. A set of camping dishes Wildo Camp-A-Box is made in thirteen colors and three trim levels Basic, Light and Complete, which differ in the number of items included in them.
Set of camping dishes Wildo Camp-A-Box Complete, equipment, impressions after use, overview.
A set of dishes Wildo Camp-A-Box Complete includes: a plate with a lid, which at the same time are the packaging for the rest of the contents, a small cup Fold-A-Cup, a large cup Fold-A-Cup Big, cutting board, set for spices Wildo Shaker and a hybrid spoon Wildo Spork combined with a fork and knife. The main characteristics of the Wildo Camp-A-Box set of dishes: total dimensions 190x130x50 mm, total weight 265 grams, materials used polypropylene, polyamide 6, thermoplastic elastomers. The materials from which the kit is made do not contain the chemical element bisphenol-A (BPA-Free), which is harmful to health.
When folded, the Wildo Camp-A-Box set of dishes has a practical design and is quite compact. External forms of the kit will make it easy to pack it in the main compartment or side pocket of the backpack. In this regard, it compares favorably with a similar in functionality, but having a completely non-practical triangular shape, Light My Fire Outdoor MealKit set. The cover of the Wildo Camp-A-Box set of dishes has perimeter protrusions that ensure reliable fixation of the plate and prevent accidental opening of the set from shaking or accidental falling. A protrusion is located inside the figured cut-out of the plate, which simplifies the opening of the set.
Camping Plate and Cover Set Wildo Camp-A-Box Complete.
Made of polypropylene (PP). Keeping the lid on the weight is not very convenient, so it is more suitable as an auxiliary dish for cooking or for placing light salads and snacks. Thanks to the lateral protrusion, it is convenient to hold the plate. Due to its relatively small depth for liquid soups, it is not very suitable, but it will fit a large portion of porridge or other similar dishes.
Fold-A-Cup Small Cup and Fold-A-Cup Big.
Folding cups Fold-A-Cup and Fold-A-Cup Big are made of thermoplastic elastomer (TPE), available in twenty and fourteen colors, respectively, for any, even the most sophisticated, taste. Capacity Fold-A-Cup / Fold-A-Cup Big 250/600 ml, weight 25/46 grams, dimensions when folded 94x72x29 / 120x105x39 millimeters.
They can be used both for cold drinks and for brewing hot drinks directly in them. The material allows you to do this. Or like bowls for soups or broths. On the inner surface of a large cup Fold-A-Cup Big marked scale. The fold formed after folding these cups ensures that nothing will drip from them, if, for example, they are put into a set that is not fully dried.
The overall impression of using both cups is mostly positive. A non-critical drawback is the not very pleasant ability of the cup material to absorb and retain the smells of the product that was poured into them. The internal odor is removed only after two or three washes using a detergent and then thoroughly rinsing.
Wildo Spork hybrid spoon with fork and knife.
The Wildo Spork hybrid spoon is structurally combined with a fork and knife. Made of polyamide 6 (PA6) material and available in twelve colors. Dimensions 165x48x15 mm, weight 8.5 grams. Comparing Wildo Spork with the previously used similar Light My Fire Spork Original hybrid fork spoon, at first glance you immediately give preference to Wildo Spork. The design seems more thoughtful, the spoon itself is more rigid, and the bend of the handle is more convenient.
The initial opinion is almost the opposite after the first use of Wildo Spork for its intended purpose. Her fork does its job a little worse than a full Light My Fire Spork fork, the knife is much better. But with the spoon there are some problems. As a general drawback, I would like to mention the inconvenient shape and slightly excessive spoon scoop.
And if she still copes with solid dishes such as porridge, capturing an acceptable portion, then she is not friends at all with liquid soups or broths. The amount of liquid remaining in the scoop scoop after scooping hardly makes up half the volume in the Light My Fire Spork spoon. Everything else pours out through the deep cuts between the prongs of the fork. So there’s a spoonful of Wildo Spork that will take a very, very long liquid.
Set for salt and spices Wildo Shaker.
The Wildo Shaker Spice Set is made of polypropylene (PP) and comes in twelve colors. Dimensions 59×45 mm, weight 18 grams. Inside divided into three separate sections. One large and two identical smaller ones. The size of the outlets suggests that only the finely ground salt and spices will be used in the Wildo Shaker Spice Set.
In general, I liked the Wildo Shaker salt and spice storage kit. However, it should be borne in mind that it is not fully waterproof, therefore, in conditions of high humidity or in case of accidental exposure to rain, all contents will most likely be wet and may ultimately be unsuitable.
Camping Cookware Set Cutting Board Wildo Camp-A-Box Complete.
Made of polypropylene (PP), dimensions 175x116x3 mm. In one of the corners there are several rows of holes that can be used as a colander. The shape of the cutting board is very convenient and it is perfect for cutting or slicing products in the field.
General impressions of the Wildo Camp-A-Box Complete camping set.
Overall, the overall experience with the Wildo Camp-A-Box cookware set is positive. Good workmanship, reasonable configuration and practical design. All Wildo Camp-A-Box Complete items can be used either together or individually. Depending on arising conditions or need. The use of the kit will be especially relevant in cases where food for a large company is prepared centrally, with a general distribution.
Or in the event that the basis of the diet will be sublimated foods or instant foods. But then, in the set of dishes, the Wildo Camp-A-Box will need to have a small metal pot or mug so that it is possible to boil water over an open fire or burner fire, since the items included in the set do not allow.
