    Why bother when you have perfectly good silverwear (which is seldom silver these days)?

    You can get chopsticks with a hinge in them. They look like really long pointy clothes pins. I bought some for someone who is challenged in fine motor skills

    How about silver chopsticks?

    I’ve never understood the smug appeal of using chopsticks.

    Wooden chopsticks are the best, as the grain helps grip the food. A friend gave each of us a pair of lacquered chopsticks and they are too slick to use. (And I always end up using a fork for the last few grains of rice, as I am too shy to put the plate up to my mouth and shovel them in.)

    Someone I knew in Japan back in 1952 used the “plow” method for the last crumbs. I thought it was cute.

    What you really don’t want to see when you’ve finished eating with chop-sticks, is one stick shorter than the other…

    sure, a pair of spoons, or a single spoon, or a fork. you can stand up and get it yourself from the kitchen (yes, I am aware that this guy is not Homer Simpson most of the times)

    I bought two pairs of those for my grandkids, ages 3 and 5. First thing the 3 year old did was snap the hinge and turn them into normal chopsticks!

    Most Asian cuisine is designed and cooked to be eaten with chopsticks. (That’s why everything that’s not finger food is in bite-sized pieces.) Using chopsticks is simply eating it the way it was meant to be eaten. BTW, if you want to learn to use chopsticks, don’t try picking up rice one grain at a time; start with noodles, as they’re easy to scoop up.

    Westerners using chopsticks to eat Asian food is an affectation since they are well versed in the use of forks and spoons.

    I use chopsticks whenever there’s anything remotely Asian on the table at home, but since my boyfriend doesn’t he comes in well behind me when we eat out :-) Here in Argentina it’s not usual for Chinese or Japanese restaurants to offer you a fork instead, so he’ll have to learn some time.

    Exactly. I have some very pointed lacquered ones that even after years of practice can be difficult to eat with. Sadly, the ones that come with take-out food are usually the easiest to use.
