Orikaso bowls

Does anyone have experience with the flat folding Orikaso bowls and plates? I'm wondering how long they last and how easy are they to clean..it looks like the constant folding/unfolding will cause the plastic to crack or split at the folds and the rough surface doesn't look as though it cleans easily. They do look like they save weight and space though..

The stuff is cool.

From their site

Q: How many times can I fold / unfold an Orikaso product?
A: The folds in Orikaso are often referred to as a 'living hinge'; due to the unique properties of polypropylene Orikaso products can be folded thousands of times with none of the problems of fatigue that you would associate with other plastics. We are so confident of this that every Orikaso product comes with a 10-year guarantee.

I have a set, and like them. I've used them on two tours now, and they seem fine.

The plates are kind of useless; if you want a flatter surface, just don't fold the bowl up and leave it flat. The bowls are excellent however. I thought they looked chincy at first too, but I have used them extensively for 5 years now. Super light, and even more importantly, they fold flat to fit just about anywhere in a pack/pannier. They also make excellent cutting boards when flat. I'm just waiting for them to make a wine glass for trips to France and Italy!

The bowl and plate are excellent, in my view. The mug I am still umming and erring about, but it seemed to do the job OK last time I toured.
