The StikChops™ – One For All - is the universally designed
utensil for chopstick and fork users alike! Why is there no dinnerware solution
for chopstick and fork users to crossover the culinary divide required
effortlessly? Currently, a range of “Cheater Chopsticks” enables those
untrained with their use and grasp to manage, but these fall short when
navigating into foods prepared and selected with forks and knives. What about
an intuitive and user-friendly voyage from one eating utensil and culture easily
into the other? Food preparations throughout the world for chopstick and fork
vary according to the cultures and utensils used.
If you haven’t grown up using
chopsticks or forks as your primary eating utensil yet have decided to master
the technique, you’ll know that the learning curve is steep to say the least.Maneuvering
these utensils to pick up food items for the untrained hand is certainly easier
said than done.Understanding
the struggle, Michel designed StikChops™, a revolutionized take on chopsticks
and forks for consumers trying new culinary experiences and traditions while
dinning locally and traveling abroad.
The StikChops™ utensil is a
beautifully designed, simple to use, and user-friendly utensil that bridges the
gap between Chopstick and Fork eating for cultures for those expanding their
culinary treats. StikChops™ also has a slightly curved body that makes actions
like twirling pasta noodles a breeze.Added perks of StikChops™ ergonomic design include its ability
to stably rest on the edge of a plate, and act as serving tongs if necessary.
Currently, StikChops™ will be available in five different colours, and comes in
two sizes, regular and children size. The multi-purpose utensil is also
environmentally friendly, is reusable, and recyclable. A travel-friendly
utensil, StikChops™ even comes with a protective cap to keep your on-the-go
experience clean and sanitary.So put the days of flying peas and dropped noodles behind you
with StikChops™. Your non-cramping hand and full stomach will certainly
