Rating and Summary
The Sumpri Marshmallow Roasting Sticks are easily the most stunning roasting sticks in the market, coming in handles with all different and vibrant colors. On top of that, they are sturdy and heavy duty, and can hold 4 hot dogs with hardly any flex.
However, I would like further information on the type of stainless steel being used for these Sumpri Roasting Sticks, and whether it’s food grade. But to be fair, I have used these Sumpri Roasting Sticks multiple times with no red flags or issues.

Here’s what we’ll discuss here:
- In the Box
Here’s what the packaging of the Sumpri Marshmallow Roasting Sticks looked like:
In the Box
The Sumpri Roasting Sticks come with a storage pouch, a set of 6 stainless steel roasting sticks, a few bamboo sticks, and some instructions.
Here are my personal measurements of the Sumpri Marshmallow Roasting Sticks:
- Extended length: 33.5 inches, or 85 cm.
- Retracted length: 9.5 inches, or 24 cm.
- Distance between the tines: 1.75 inches, or 4.5 cm.
- Weight of 1 roasting stick: 73 grams, or 2.6 ounces.
- Weight of storage pouch: 40 grams, or 1.4 ounces.
- Material of tines and rod: non-toxic stainless steel.
- Material of handle: wood.
- Material of pouch: canvas.
The Sumpri Roasting Sticks pack down small, but telescope when in use to put you at a safe distance away from the fire.
The tines or prongs are pretty sharp, so it comes with these red colored tip protectors.
All the handles of the Sumpri Sticks are in different vibrant colors for easy identification.
Each Sumpri Roasting Stick also comes with a rotating axle, so you can very easily rotate the stick for your even roast.
The canvas storage pouch has a zippered opening.
Testing and Performance
I put the Sumpri Marshmallow Roasting Sticks through these 4 tests:
- Ease of Use
- Ease of Clean Up
Here’s how the Sumpri Sticks performed.
The Sumpri Roasting Sticks are heavy duty, and can hold 4 hot dogs without flexing or bending too much. Here’s what it looked like with 4 hot dogs.
So, of course, the Sumpri Sticks can also hold 4 marshmallows without any flex, and is super sturdy.
The tines are not too close together, so by skewering 2 marshmallows on each tine, the Sumpri Roasting Sticks can hold 4 marshmallows easily.
Ease of Use
The Sumpri Marshmallow Roasting Sticks retract and telescope easily, and it remains at the extended length firmly. I did notice that some roasting sticks were stiffer than others though.
When I used the Sumpri Roasting Sticks to roast hot dogs, the hot dogs did not slip into the fire even when I hung them vertically downwards, because both tines went through the hot dogs, making them more secure.
However, when I roasted marshmallows with the Sumpri Sticks, when I hung them downwards as well, you can see a little bit of slipping from the traces of marshmallow goo. This is probably because only 1 tine went through each marshmallow, which feels less secure. Also, the tines are quite thick and heavy duty, so more heat was probably conducted through it.
The Sumpri Roasting Sticks each come with a rotating axle, so it’s really easy to rotate the sticks for that even roast. I also did not notice any spinning of hot dogs or marshmallows, even though only 1 tine went through each marshmallow. There could be spinning if you’re using a bigger fire though.
The tines are sharp, so it was super easy for me to skewer both hot dogs and marshmallows. I did not roast meats, but I figure that it shouldn’t be a big issue poking the tines through meats as well.
To clean the Sumpri Roasting Sticks, I just tossed them in soapy water for a couple of hours and they were clean with no residue or marshmallow goo, even without scrubbing.
The Sumpri Roasting Sticks are made of non-toxic stainless steel, but I could not find any information on the type of stainless steel, and whether it’s food grade. Thankfully though, I did not notice any rust on my Sumpri Sticks after soaking them in water for cleaning and not drying them after.
The handles are made of wood, are smooth, and are painted over in different vibrant colors – red, yellow, blue, green, purple and black. The handle is not fixed to the rod, but this is to allow the rotating axle to rotate the stick.
As for the storage pouch, zippers are smooth. Packing up the sticks into the pouch is easy as well and not a tight fit.
Pros and Cons
For pros, I found that the Sumpri Roasting Sticks are very sturdy and heavy duty, and can roast anything from marshmallows to multiple hot dogs. It also comes with a rotating axle for easy rotation, and each handle is beautifully colored for easy identification.
As for cons, my only issue is that I have no idea what type of stainless steel is being used, for example, whether it’s type 304, and whether it’s food grade. But, I have used these Sumpri Roasting Sticks on multiple occasions and so far there haven’t been any red flags that the stainless steel is not food safe.
Would I recommend the Sumpri Roasting Sticks?
I think that the Sumpri Roasting Sticks are outstanding in terms of being heavy duty and sturdy, and it gets the job done for sure, no matter what you’re roasting. On top of that, these handles are not only high quality but also super awesome looking. I think the Sumpri Sticks have got to be my nicest looking roasting sticks.
If you can look past the fact that there’s no information on the type of stainless steel used, I could only find information confirming that these are non-toxic, these are some really great quality roasting sticks.
But are these Sumpri Roasting Sticks the best on the market though? Or the best for your needs?
