Not only for Eating

My better half is Chinese, therefore our cutlery has been extended by chopsticks (筷子) and  Chinese soup spoons, or duck spoons (散蓮華).

Using chopsticks is easier then most people expect and the ceramic spoons are great for eating soups. We often have Chinese Hot Pot with our friends in our place, it is a great way to share some food and have a good evening. Hot Pot would be only half the fun when eating with spoons and forks only.

But Shop sticks and duck spoons are fabulous tools for cooking and serving. The spoons I use for tasting food when seasoning food. The ceramic spoons do not heat that badly then metal teaspoon and they are bigger so you get enough for a proper taste.
Duck spoons have a flat base which means you can set them down without spilling great if you want the content of the spoon cool for a moment. You can use the spoons also as mini bowls when serving desserts or starters.

Chopsticks are gert for fishing out solids out of liquids, much better the spoons or forks in tight spots like narrow tall vessels.

There are many other use cases for chopsticks and duck spoons, just be creative
