Conventional chopsticks haven’t changed in over 4,000 years. Isn’t it time for something better?
“I can use chopsticks… but Jan-Stix are better!”
“I grew up using chopsticks. So I guess you could say I’m pretty proficient in their use. Or at least a lot better than most of my friends!But just because I can use chopsticks doesn’t mean I like chopsticks. As a matter of fact, there is a lot to dislike about conventional chopsticks:First off, you don’t just pick up chopsticks--you have to put them on. It’s a two-handed operation just getting started.But Jan-Stix are free-standing, so they are always ready to use. Just grab them and dig in!Next, Jan-Stix require no separate chopsticks rest. And absent a chopsticks rest you need to balance conventional chopsticks on the edge of your plate. But Jan-Stix have a much smaller footprint--they take up less space than a wine goblet.Jan-Stix have raised nubs on the inner tip surfaces to hug slippery noodles and other morsels. Even for me, that has always been a challenge with conventional chopsticks.Did you know that prolonged use of conventional chopsticks can lead to repetitive strain injuries or arthritis? Unfortunately, my grandparents found out the hard way.I’ve also read that disposable chopsticks have been found to have toxic levels of sulfur, talc, and formaldehyde.But sanitary Jan-Stix are dishwasher-safe, and are made with FDA-approved materials.I care about the environment. Did you know that over 400 million disposable chopsticks are discarded every day? And every day over 100 acres of forestland are consumed for their replenishment? Each reusable Jan-Stix can replace 3,000 disposable chopsticks--the equivalent of a 20-year old aspen.So yes, I know all about chopsticks. That’s why I prefer Jan-Stix.”
