All-purpose eating utensils are mainly used while hiking or traveling given their versatility: spoon, fork, and knife all in one. I originally purchased mine for hiking purposes, but since then I’ve used it for just about everything. It’s great for dorm life! They’re made out of extremely durable plastic, and some even have holes drilling into the middle so you can attach them to key rings.

This one is made by Light My Fire – the founder of the company came up with the idea to make the spork out of plastic to make it easier to use while hiking.
