Marshmallow Roasting Sticks – We have to have s’mores right? Obviously, you can use some green sticks if you have a little bit of know-how. That is what we usually do, but I was able to review some of these roasting sticks and I approve of them. I love how they are extendable. I hate that I have to wash them though. Phooey!

A better way to roast marshmallows!

PROS

Extendable sticks – It’s very nice to have a long stick, so you can stay further away from the fire.
Durable and sturdy enough to roast hot dogs and other food items
Double prongs make roasting easier. Hot dogs can be poked by both prongs resulting in better cooking results.

CONS
Broken pieces – some reviewers say their sticks broke. I have this set and they’ve been fine for years. So IDK.
Washing isn’t fun or easy when you talk about marshmallows! You don’t have to wash sticks
