But chopsticks aren't only great for use as tongs. David Barry details in Fine Cooking how the Asian utensils also assist in making perfect scrambled eggs. "Not only are they gentle on nonstick surfaces, they’re also excellent at breaking the eggs into small curds," writes the culinary instructor.
Fox News reports additional chopstick kitchen uses, including pitting cherries, whisking eggs and leveling off dry ingredients when measuring.
