Product Description

Saibashi is a pair of cooking chopsticks. They are made of bamboos or wood, and much longer than regular chopsticks, so that the tips easily reach the bottom of pots but cooks won’t burn the fingers while cooking on the stoves.

For people who are not used to chopsticks, saibashis may be difficult to handle because of the length. But many Japanese cooks can’t do without them, because they perform many different tasks.

I grab 2 or 3 pairs of saibashis to make scramble eggs or mix pancake batter, and use a pair to pick up deep fried food from oil. Because many of them are made of bamboos, they won’t get hot while cooking. They are also pretty cheap and last years of abuse.

They are also convenient to clean narrow mouth water bottles. Pick up a piece of paper towels with a pair of saibashi and insert it to a water bottle, put a small amount of detergent and water, and clean inside of the bottle. Another use of saibashi is to squeeze out pasty food such as miso from the plastic bag container.

I could buy individual tools to perform those tasks, but I like to use one simple tool for many purposes, so that my small New York City apartment kitchen will not be cluttered. Simplicity and versatility are virtues of Japanese life style.
