Buyer Star Metal

Spoons are Necessary Too

Chopsticks are great. Spoons are alright too. You need both to properly enjoy your ramen, for example. That's where this set comes in. Inside the nice box, you'll find four chopstick pairs and four spoons. The set isn't cheap but these are high-quality eating utensils we're dealing with here.

The utensils' 18/10 stainless steel composition makes them immune to rust and corrosion. They will not start warping with time. The steel is dishwasher and sterilizer safe.

As far as the practicality side is concerned, we're somewhat conflicted. On one hand, the 9.05-inch chopsticks and the 8.27-inch spoons are just right for standard lunch boxes, so you can always bring them with you. On the other hand, the chopsticks are relatively flat, making them somewhat impractical and difficult for beginners.

On the durability front though, there's nothing to complain about. In addition to the high-quality stainless steel build, these utensils are mirror-polished and electroplated, so the paintwork will not start to peel off with time.

Bottom line, Buyer Star Metal Korean Utensils Set is something that just about any kitchen could benefit from. The set makes an excellent gift for foodies. The 'sticks are well-balanced. The metal is stiff. The colors are sleek and neat.

Bamber US-BKCSB24

Can't go Wrong with Bamboo

As far as chopsticks are concerned, bamboo is where it's at. These things have been made from bamboo for centuries now. Not any bamboo will do though. There are major differences between quality bamboo (used in this set) and subpar bamboo.

These bamboo chopsticks here have been carbonized, making them stronger and much more durable. Plus, they're able to withstand much higher temperatures. The 'sticks are corrosion-resistant too, so you won't have any maintenance issues (you will have to hand wash them though but that's always the issue with wooden utensils).

Other than that, the 10 chopstick pairs that come with the package are practically immune to humidity. They're anti-microbial. These sticks do not twist. Because they're fully polished, you won't have to worry about any dents/splinters.

Of course, the shape/form matters too. The 10-inch sticks are neither too long nor too short. They're easy to grip and perfectly easy to maneuver. The laser-engraved logo separates these 'sticks from your everyday cheap counterparts.

In other words, Bamber US-BKCSB24 keep things old-school but with some new-school techniques and tech too. These chopsticks will be able to satisfy newbies and experienced 'stick users alike. You'll have no issues in the long run too. These things look authentic and almost personalized.

Hiware HIFC10U

The Least Demanding Sticks

Hiware HIFC10U are probably the least demanding 'sticks on the list. The chopsticks' fiberglass composition makes them as easy to maintain as it gets.

They're able to withstand temperatures as high as 356 degrees Fahrenheit. These sticks do not melt, bend, or crack. They are about as rust-resistant and non-corrosive as kitchen utensils come, so you'll be able to use them for years and the sticks will appear as good as new. Of course, they're dishwasher safe too.

Apart from that, the heat-resistant fiberglass is BPA-free. There's no coating/paintwork, so you won't have to worry about different layers peeling off after some time.

The sticks are lightweight but not too lightweight. The non-slip makes these things great for beginners. That and the chopsticks' anti-rolling body makes them suitable for various commercial establishments.

As far as we're concerned, the only issue with these 'sticks is that they are somewhat poorly balanced. The tips weigh more than they should, making these things somewhat inconvenient for experienced users at first.

Setting that aside, Hiware HIFC10U can be used anywhere by anyone. These things are ridiculously durable and easy to maintain. The chopsticks are perfect for eating sushi, rice, and/or noodles. They're more than suitable for caterers, restaurants, cafeterias, cafes, buffets, diners, you name the place.

Omia Metal

Eat Anything and Everything with Sticks

Omia Metal Stainless Steel Chopsticks are mean. These things are practically indestructible. The 304 stainless steel is rust- and corrosion-resistant. The polished finish makes these sticks resistant to high temperatures. At the same time, these things are pretty easy to hold.

As far as we're concerned, the chopsticks' biggest selling point and the most defining characteristic are these circular anti-skid grooves on the tips. As you would imagine, these grooves will let even the least experienced users pick up food much more efficiently. They make sure that different food items do not slip as much as they often do.

The sticks' dimensions are pretty standard, featuring around 9.5 inches on the length front and about 1.5 inches in the width department. The weight is where we have issues with the sticks.

Generally speaking, it is usually the balance that is the chopsticks' downfall. That's not the case here.

The weight is balanced but, at the same time, somewhat too light. You want to feel the sticks' weight in your hands and that's not necessarily the case here (especially for people used to regular hefty metal sticks). That being said, these matters are as subjective as they come.

In short, Omia Metal Stainless Steel Chopsticks are the best sticks for beginners on this list. You'll be able to eat practically anything with these things.

Hiware Metal and Bamboo

Practical and Versatile Set

Hiware Metal and Bamboo Chopsticks Set is the most affordable set on the list. We can definitely get behind the set's price-to-quality ratio.

Of course, these sticks aren't flawless. The 8.8-inch length is relatively short, something that experienced chopsticks users will definitely notice and feel initially uncomfortable with.

The 18/8 stainless steel sticks are as rugged and robust as they come. These things aren't afraid of anything: rust, corrosion, high temperatures, you name the threat. They've been thoroughly brushed and polished to make sure the sticks are able to maintain their presentable appearance for years to come.

You have these usual grooves at the sticks' top that would suggest these things should be easy to grip and easy to hold but that's not entirely the case. We're not saying that these chopsticks are slippery but we're not saying the opposite either.

We're definitely saying though that the bamboo sticks are nice and smooth to the touch. They look really elegant and polished too despite the modest price tag. Of course, they're not machine washable though.

Long story short, Hiware Metal and Bamboo Chopsticks Set is practical and affordable. You'll be able to entertain many guests and let them choose between metal and bamboo sticks. Plus, you won't have to spend a small fortune on kitchen utensils, which is something we can always get behind.

What Are Chopsticks?

Some people absolutely dread chopsticks. We get it. These things aren't nearly as intuitive as traditional Western eating utensils. At the same time, they're much more practical and comfortable than most people give them credit for. There are many meals and dishes that you should eat with chopsticks.

These little sticks aren't nearly as similar as one would believe though. Sure, there are many similarities. The length is usually somewhere between 8.5 and 10 inches to make them suitable for standard bowls as well as make sure people are always relatively comfortable and familiar with the size.

There are usually different design implements around the top and bottom parts to make sure newbies are able to grab different food items and that your hands don't slip when you hold the sticks.

There are different materials too. As you would imagine, bamboo looks more classy and refined but you can't shove wooden utensils into your dishwasher and expect any decent results, so the trade-off here is that you'll have to wash these sticks yourself.

There are also reusable/disposable 'sticks but we've decided to focus on quality sets first and foremost.

These bento boxes will work wonders with chopsticks and not just because both originate from Japan. Glass food storage containers, on the other hand, have their advantages too, so we would definitely recommend reading through the reviews.
