Which utensils do you like using and why?

For me, since I'm Chinese, I'm totally used to using chopsticks and all, but depending on the food I'm eating, forks would be preferred... But of course, spoons for soup, and knives to cut stuff! (I'm a normal person why doesn't want too much trouble in a meal)
Although I tend to cut my eggs with a fork...

Well, I can't use chopsticks, even though I am getting better and i do not eat eggs, but otherwise I'd say I' just the same as you lambchopsil except for the fact that I do eat with my hands when I encouter such things as sandwiches. so how am I supposed to vote for only one thing?

But I'm gona go with hands, It is so much more versetaile and I think I eat more sandwiches than anything else.

I like forks!
They're so convenient (except if you want soup XD.)

You just hold it, stab your food, and yeah.

I love to eat my foods with a spoon and (sometimes) a fork.

I dunno why I do it, but I just like eating that way.

Whichever is the most convenient. I don't have any particular likes or dislikes.

Spaghetti = best eaten with a fork and spoon. Same for certain other Western dishes.

Fish and chips = fork and knife. There's no way to actually cut the food with a spoon. And the cut of meat or fish is usually too big for chopsticks to hold.

Chinese/Japanese/Korean-style noodles = chopsticks are easier. I've tried using fork and spoon but it's usually very very messy and I get the food all over my face.

normally i use fork+knife+spoon (like many westerner i think) and sometimes chopsticks or hands.
So i choose fork since it's the one i use the most.

But i don't understand why fork and knive aren't together, i mean they are created to be used together, a knive is just to slice, you always need another ustensil with it to pick the food (fork, spoon, chopsticks or hands xD)

Of course it depends what I'm eating, but I think it's safe to say that I use a fork the most. Can't exactly eat with a knife...well you can, but that's just silly.

Chopsticks I use when I go to Chinese restaurants etc. if they're on the table, which they usually are.

Hands I use when I'm eating meat, usually from a barbeque my dad sometimes does. No meat is leftover when I'm around. I'll eat everything I can until there is only bone left. The best way to eat it all is to pick it up with your hands and dig in laugh

But yeah, forks are the most convenient for me. Apart from when I'm eating soup...

(I like using a fork as well...which is what your asking. You're not actually asking which one you use the most...)

It's a strange poll. It's obvious that people use different utensils according to what they eat biggrin
I picked a fork, because I use it the most, I think. Sometimes I even eat cake with a fork.

Yeah, but some people use only a fork (for example me - looking for a knife is a bother, I usually cut my food with a fork).

Why is just "knife" an option!?!?

Should't it be like:

-fork
-fork and knife
-fork and spoon
-spoon
-chopsticks
-hands

I can't even answer this poll because I use all except hands. It just depends what I'm eating and I use them all about the same frequency.

Erm, most used would be fork, used to be spoon when I was a kid, but it was kinda hard to eat spaghetti with a spoon laugh

Chopsticks, we only use it to mix and serve the salad, something that got stuck on us after living in some place laugh

Hands.... Definitely hands.

In fact, I use them to such an extent that those around me have started using their hands... Of course, once they realize this, they stop and find a fork or something.

Besides, if you wash your hands before and after, there shouldn't be a problem with that... also, you don't have to clean as much.

I actually like spoons more than chopsticks. >: Though chopsticks would be a 2nd choice.
Spoons are more convenient for me. ^_^ (In my house we ONLY have spoons and chopsticks. dead )

It's more like, if you HAD to choose one.
What would you prefer to use?
If you could only choose one.
Or your favorite utensil. It's not asking which one you use the most.
Also, I didn't put knife as an option because well, who eats with just a knife? >:

EDIT:
Oh looky, Lambs put knife in there now. XD

Depends on the food.

Hands for pizza.
Fork for pasta
Spoon for soup (obviously)
Zippo for cigarettes
