Chopsticks may seem awkward to use at first but with practice it becomes fun to use them, especially for cooking. These extra long chopsticks are ideal for kitchen jobs like putting spring rolls into hot oil. In Chinese cooking they are used for every phase of cooking, such as beating eggs. stirring and mixing food, lifting out small pieces of food during cooking, and turning and seperating food in stiry frying or deep frying.
You can even check the temperture of the cooking oil by placing a dry clean chopstick vertically in the middle of hot cooking oil touching the bottom of the wok. If many bubbles immediately rise along the side of the chopstick, the oil is hot enough to start deep frying. These bamboo chopsticks can tolerate high heat.
