Here’s What to Do With All Those Leftover Takeout Chopsticks
Repurpose your surplus—these hacks will be helpful long after the takeout arrives.
Ordering in? Don't throw out those complimentary wooden utensils. Repurpose the set with these hacks and make your life a little easier whether you're toasting bread, portioning meat, or drying a silicone bag.
Pluck bagels or toast with a quick pinch and save your fingers from being singed. Wood doesn't conduct electricity, so chopsticks (as long as they aren't wet) are safer than metal utensils.
When your buffet has more casseroles than your kitchen has hot pads, place a pan on three chopsticks spaced two inches apart.
Before freezing ground beef, flatten it in a ziplock bag and carve out portions with a chopstick. Rather than defrosting all of it, just break off what you need.
Drape a just-washed plastic or silicone bag over two crisscrossed chopsticks in a cup. No more fused-shut or permanently soggy snack bags!
