Chopsticks for All

The chopsticks that come with your favorite take-out food are splintery, and the last time your kid tried to grab a wanton it wound up airborne. But those clever Finns have the solution to both of these problems: Linking chopsticks. Called Kitasticks, these sleek utensils were created by Jani Martikainen, the owner of Finnish design house Majamoo. They can be used just like regular chopsticks, if you’re already a pro. For beginners (or those who never quite mastered traditional chopsticks), the patented interlocking design allows for a bit of help without screaming to the world, “Hey, I’m using training wheels on my chopsticks.” The design is chic Scandinavian all the way, so the Kitasticks look great and provide the sleekest solution we’ve seen when it comes to chopstick help. Kids will clamor to try new foods, and Kitasticks will be the talk of your next dinner party. These chopsticks won’t save the world, but they just may spice up dinnertime.

    The best innovations are often the small things that help make our daily lives a little easier and more enjoyable. The linking Kitastick chopsticks are definitively one of them, especially for someone like me who likes using chopsticks but isn't exactly great at it...Now anybody can use chopsticks! Ask away, I'll do my best to answer any questions you may have!

    I don't know about anyone else but I have a sudden craving for Chinese! That spring action is genius, I don't think we should consider these cheater chopsticks or beginner chopsticks. These are just very smartly designed chopsticks!

    Chinese New Year is Sunday, Feb 14th and it will be the year of the Tiger, a sign of Bravery. I won't need to be brave to attempt to eat with chopsticks anymore!

    Yes, Frank was super on the video.... explaining quite well how these Kitasticks work. Thank you Frank! I have been one of those people intimidated by chopsticks, although always, always trying to use them. Sometimes the food got in my mouth and sometimes it didn't. I tested these on a delicious, but slippery shrimp and pea pod rice dish... they are fun to use and they worked every time!

    @Mary. Given my own total incompetence with chopsticks, and properly eating Asian food, I was looking for a breakthrough on the directionally healthier food front. --But I'll let you know if I find the Kitastick going to Dunkin Donuts or Cinnabon with me.

    We carry a couple of chopstick styles in the store. Customers buy a some regular ones and then a couple of KitaSticks -- often for someone in particular in mind. Then their guests can use chopsticks and not feel self-conscious. A number of parents have even bought these for their young children as "training" chopsticks.
