I'm teaching my 5 yr old grandson how to use chopsticks. He'll enjoy using these in addition to other learner chopsticks he's been using.

I need those! I'm definitely chopstick challenged. I love going out for Sushi and my table manners are pitiful. Steve lived in Japan for a while, and he just rolls his eyes.

But, mushrooms and whole almonds in a slippery sauce will still be hard to pick up with plastic chopsticks.

Well....if you're talking sushi, just use your fingers. That's perfectly acceptable.

This doesn't have to be done with plastic chopsticks.

If a restaurant gives you the cheapo wood chopsticks in the paper wrapper, you do the same thing, using the wrapper to roll up and wedge between the sticks.

Good idea.

I mentioned the plastic chopsticks with slippery sauce, whole almonds, and mushrooms so that no one would get discouraged just because those were difficult. They can be difficult with wooden or bamboo chopsticks. They still fight with me when I use plastic chopsticks and I have been using chopsticks for 45 years.

My problem with chopsticks is that my hand cramps up part way through the meal.
