We review the Lifeventure Ellipse Cookware, which is recommended for those taking part in the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme.
The Duke of Edinburgh Award is not all about hiking and camping, however that is part of it.
With so much outdoor gear available, it’s hard to know what to get if you’re not familiar with it. This is why the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme approve certain items as D of E Recommended.
Lifeventure Ellipse Cookware Review
The Ellipse Range comprises of a plate, a blow, a mug, and a knife/fork/spoon set, so that your son or daughter has everything they need at meal times.
These aren’t pop-up or foldable. There is some flex in these plastic bowls, but what’s import is that they’re simple and they’re rugged. Just what’s needed to survive being repeatedly shoved into backpacks.
The knife, fork, and spoon fit together, which helps prevent them getting lost in your bag.
They’re also one of the cheapest items you will need to get for the D of E – which is just as well as I’m sure someone will leave them behind at some point.
They come in three colours: purple, grey, green, and blue.
It’s recommended to stick to one colour when buying to make it easier to spot your items when in a group.
Here’s a video from Lifeventure. More details on the Ellipse Cookware can be found on the Lifeventure website.
Not just for D of E
We’ve been using this plate/blow/cup/cutlery set for camping and they’ve proved themselves quite rugged and still look new, despite being used extensively.
They’ve not twisted or cracked, and appear to be up to the job.
The only area for slight improvement would be to see the set stack inside one another to save a bit more space when packing away.
Other than that, the Ellipse Cookware gets a thumbs up from us.
