How the Gravity Chopsticks Work
The key element to sanitary chopsticks lies in its unique geometric design and weight balance. Utilizing a ‘thick bottom, thin top’ structure, most of the weight is located to the bottom end. This creates a lifting effect for the lighter tips, keeping them off of the table top without additional help. Even if you have a few bits of rice stuck to it (I’m judging you if you do), they’ll stay off the table. With this, you can save on all the chopstick rests!
Besides this major selling point, Gravity Chopsticks has a few other tricks up its sleeve. Instead of a cylindrical design, it uses a square-ish one to prevent rolling. The material used is food contact safe (obvs) and dishwasher safe, so you can chuck it in with the rest of your dishes without worry. For those who are like me and sometimes have trouble with keeping the food held between your chopsticks, these ones are texturized for better grip!
For those who are interested, Gravity Chopsticks are currently live on Kickstarter! At USD5, you can get a pair for yourself, shipping April this year. If you’re a restaurant looking into investing in some chopsticks, there are also other bundle deals you can check out.
