How do you get the kinks out of circular knitting needles (the portion that is flexible)? I am continuously unbending the curl, but that is time-consuming, annoying, and also slows up my speed.
Thank you for your help.
Also, winding the needle up to fit it in the original package/pouch makes it retain that curl. So, I also recommend getting one of those circular needle storage hangers that allows each needle to hang on a nice arc. That can help after you have gotten the curl to relax with the hot water trick.

I warm a container of water in the microwave, about the same as a really hot cup of coffee, dunk the cable part into the water for a minute or so and hold it by one needle till it cools. Works a treat.
