I keep several pairs of long plastic chopsticks together with all my cooking paraphernalia. They're so useful! I use them to pick up olives, pickles and other things in tall jars. They can be used to mix small amounts of sauces and batters. They can be used for flipping things in the oven. Basically, for almost anything I use tongs for, I can use chopsticks. And they take up so little space and are so easy to clean. I even have the japanese cooking ones for deep frying purposes. Anyone else do this?
