Cooking chopsticks are used for preparing and serving Asian dishes. The objective was to develop long chopsticks that neither roll away nor touch the kitchen worktop. Thus, a ring-shaped protrusion in the middle of the chopsticks ensures that their tips float above the worktop surface. In order not to limit the flexibility and the grip of the chopsticks, the protrusion is reduced to a minimum. In addition, the square contour prevents the chopsticks from rolling away.
Statement by the Jury
With these elegant cooking chopsticks, a functional modification led to a particularly comfortable handling.
