The history of chopsticks

Dating back to the Zhou Dynasty, chopsticks have been used all over East Asia for over two millennia. They are the major eating utensils for China, Japan, Korea, and Vietnam. However, other countries such as Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Singapore, Malaysia, and Nepal generally use chopsticks only for consuming noodles.

Benefits of using chopsticks

Aside from being an essential part of the Asian food experience, chopsticks have additional benefits. Eating with chopsticks encourages us to consume smaller portions and chew our food for longer. Plus, learning to use chopsticks is also great for coordination training. But most importantly, the bamboo chopsticks we use to consume takeaway food are biodegradable and safer for the environment than plastic forks and spoons.

Factors to consider when buying chopsticks

Whether you're looking to add to your flatware collection, searching for a gift set, or simply need some sushi chopsticks for your favourite lunch, there are a few things to consider:

  • Material: Choose from metal, plastic, bone, wood or bamboo

  • Price: Wood and bamboo are very affordable, whereas metal and bone are more expensive

  • Style: Chinese chopsticks, Japanese chopsticks and Korean chopsticks all have unique design features

  • Purpose: Will they be used for cooking or eating? By a child or an adult?

  • Quality: High quality chopsticks are reusable, washable, and heat resistant

  • Ease of use: Bamboo and wood with non-slip grooves are easier to use than stainless steel

Materials used for chopsticks

Wood is often favoured for its ease of use and practicality. Although durable and heat resistant, stainless steel chopsticks are more challenging to use. Plastic is economical and stands up well to heat.

  • Bamboo: Bamboo and natural wood chopsticks are environmentally friendly and convenient. Because wood is a low conductor of heat, it doesn’t transfer the food’s temperature to your hands. They are an excellent choice for stirring food and eating rice.

  • Metal: Titanium chopsticks are more expensive but highly durable and dishwasher safe

  • Plastic: Super lightweight and durable, fibreglass chopsticks won’t bend, melt, or crack. Designed in stylish colours, melamine chopsticks will add a fun touch to your dining experience.

  • Bone: These precious collector’s items should always be treated with care.
