About once or twice a month, we get Chinese take-out. And I eat mine with chopsticks. My children think I do this to be more authentic, but the truth is that I do it do that I’ll eat more slowly. And most Chinese food is—after all—amenable to chopsticks.
When I got tired of disposable chopsticks I hunted around for dishwasher-safe options, because I am nothing if not lazy. And I didn’t really want plastic. So I ended up with some very pretty stainless-steel chopsticks that are perfectly rounded, and so they are lovely but really, really hard to use.
While looking for alternatives, I came across this stainless chopstick set that’s actually, you know, sort of squared-off so that they work. If you need four pairs for $5.99, that’s a pretty nice deal. Plus they’re eligible for the 4-for-3 promotion, just in case you have a whole lot of friends who like to go fork-free on take-out night.
