This was exactly the point I was going to make, especially for someone just learning how to use chopsticks. I find the cheap ones, that you get with takeout, to be the best for beginners as the roughness helps to hold on to the food. I do have a variety of chopsticks at home, both plastic and wooden. I don't own any stainless ones, for the reason stated above. The plastic are convenient and I often use them for mixing things. I prefer the wooden ones when eating though.
