It’s a big EDC market out there, and tons of awesome gear is released all the time. We made The Drop to help you discover the latest and greatest essentials worth a spot in your EDC.
Those of you who habitually take your reusable cutlery around with you as you go about your day know that one of the biggest challenges you’ll face is how to clean them after each use. Are you supposed to wipe the grease down with some tissue paper like some uncivilized brute? Douse the utensils with hand sanitizer so your next meal tastes like alcohol? You need to level your portable cutlery game up and check out the Cliffset Starter Pack.
The Cliffset Starter Pack comes with a fork, knife, and spoon made of sturdy 18/8 stainless steel, a custom-contoured cleaning tool made of shatterproof Tritan, a refillable sprayer, and a vacuum molded carrying case lined with ripstop nylon and durable YKK zippers. Also included is a 1 oz. glass bottle of Anyware Cleaner, which contains 60% food-grade alcohol, water, and lemon oil.
Once you fill the sprayer with the Anyware Cleaner, you’ll have a convenient, rinse-free cleaning solution that you can simply spray on your used cutlery that does a great job of quickly lifting grease and zapping bacteria without the alcohol aftertaste. The cleaning tool’s three ridges guide your cleaning napkin perfectly between Cliffset’s fork prongs to reach every last bit, while the tip perfectly matches the flat knife blade and curved spoon bowl.
What we like: The Cliffset Starter Pack is portable enough to bring in your bag, pocket, glovebox, or anywhere you might be going for the day.
What to watch out for: The Cliffset is great for travel, but remember to leave the knife at home or put it in your checked bag before going through airport security. Chopsticks as a part of the set would also have been handy for Asian cuisines.
Final verdict: Having to clean dirty utensils is one of the reasons people just opt for wasteful, flimsy plastic utensils instead. The Cliffset Starter Pack makes cleaning simple, easy, and fun, encouraging everyone to avoid plastic.
