Got a mix of 11 and 10 speeds as I'm gradually wearing out the 10 speed stuff (may take years!)

Is 11 speed chain OK on 10 speed chainsets?

And what about a 10 speed chain on an 11 speed chainset?

I'm not concerned about the the front and rear derailleusrs, just chains and chainsets.

Thanks for any info...

11 speed chains will work OK with 10 speed chainrings, but the 11 speed are a better fit, since the teeth are .1mm thinner. There's no problem with the fit of an 11 speed chain with 10 speed cogs, but why bother with a more expensive chain until you switch to the 11 speed cassette?
and 10 speed chain on 11 speed chainrings? no probs but not ideal too?

Sorry, I have three bikes in various states of 11isation - trying to juggle options here...
