How to Hold Chopsticks Correctly?

Chopsticks: Chinese VS. Japanese VS. Korean

Chopsticks Buyers’ Guide

When were chopsticks invented?

Chopsticks are way older than you think. It goes from 4000 to 5000 years back to China and was initially used for cooking purposes and not for eating. It is very convenient for reaching the bottom of a bowl full of hot water. When resources became scarce, they started to use those cooking tools also for eating. Chopsticks were made easily and with cheap raw materials. That’s how the trend spread across Asia, and as the years passed by, chopsticks have gone universal!

How to hold chopsticks?

For the first time user, chopsticks may seem very difficult to hold. However, hold it once or twice; you will use it like a pro! First of all, grab both chopsticks with one hand. Hold it like a pencil (this will be the upper chopstick). It should be divided so that approximately one-third of the chopstick is above your holding point. Then, place the other chopstick against your ring finger and carry it with the top of your thumb. In case you hold it correctly, both chopsticks should be headed in the same direction. You can move the upper chopstick with your thumb, index finger, and middle finger.

How to eat with chopsticks?

If you are new to chopsticks, you would probably like to practice not to spill anything while eating with them. First of all, use chopsticks with your thumb and forefinger. The upper chopstick is like a pencil, use it as if you are writing on a piece of paper. The key is that the bottom chopstick remains fixed, and only the upper one moves. Your thumb helps the chopstick to stick together while your index and ring fingers help you grab the food. Be cautious not to squeeze the chopsticks too hard as the food may slip and fall. Now you are ready to eat with chopsticks!

How to clean chopsticks?

Clean your chopsticks with warm soapy water by cleaning it thoroughly for 2 minutes. Dry them with a soft cotton towel after which wrap and store away. If your chopsticks are wooden, repeat these steps only by leaving in water for 30 seconds. Make sure to store the chopsticks in a dark area and warp the exterior as sunlight can make them discolored. If you ate something oily with your chopsticks, you could clean with lime juice and soda. Use cotton to rub the oily substance of the chopsticks. You can also add a spoon of salt into the mixture of lime juice and baking soda to return the initial color.
