Frequently Asked Questions
We’re so glad you asked! ChopGuru chopsticks are made of 100% FDA-grade silicone, which means they’re BPA, PVC, and phthalate free. It also means they’re temperature resistant (no more metal chopsticks burning your mouth!) and pick up food very easily. Many other resuable chopsticks are slippery – not ours, though. ChopGurus have ribbed grips that do wonders when trying to pick up a difficult morsel. They’re also durable and super easy to clean – just throw them the dishwasher or rinse them off with dish soap and hot water.
Absolutely! They’re also microwave, oven, freezer, and fridge safe, in case you like to like to do some really unorthodox things with your chopsticks..
We recommend washing your chopsticks before using them for the first time (either in the dishwasher or hand-washing with soap and hot water). Do not scrub them with an abrasive sponge or cleaner, as this may damage them over time. And that’s really it – these suckers are seriously durable!
