These New Chopsticks Are Designed To Prevent Food From Slipping
Everyone knows what it can be like to eat with chopsticks, those of us that aren’t skilled often have trouble even picking up a mouthful of food.
Well, William and Charis, the duo behind Quickstix, have created a solution to the problem, they’ve designed a set of chopsticks that have grip on them.
We’re all familiar with the design of the traditional chopstick, a rounded piece of wood that tapers at one end.
William and Charis decided to design chopsticks that would pick up items with ease.
Here’s a comparison between traditional chopsticks and Quickstix.
The photo below shows what designers go through to create a product. They had to make a lot of prototypes and redesigns along the way.
They settled on a design that has an ergonomic hexagonal shaft and multiple gripping points.
This is the final design, a pair of chopsticks made with an advanced engineering plastic called PPS that offers the broadest resistance to chemicals and are dishwasher safe and FDA approved.
Even the most slippery of foods are easy to pick up with Quickstix.
Like these noodles.
And to show the grip that Quicksticks can achieve, here they are being used to pick up and hold a tennis ball.
