The dishwasher is safe. These tongs are dishwasher safe, making it easy to clean them up. Silicone heads are found in the steel tongs. The heads are heat resistant to 600 degrees and are safe for non-stick cookware. The handle is soft and comfortable. The lock is closed for storage. There are 9-inch and 12-inch lengths available.
👤The Silicone tips have a finish that doesn't remove with dishsoap. They look bad.
👤I have a hard time picking up the food because of the thick silicone on the tips. It is similar to trying to fix something small with mittens on. I wouldn't buy again. You can pick up anything, the smallest food pieces, and it is an extension of your hand if you get the regular tongs, the same brand, without Silicone. I use the steel ones and Silicone tipped ones, because they are so hard to use.
👤The product is okay. I use these with my pans. The silicone grippers are too big and clunky for a 9 tong. I expected it to be the same as the nylon heads which are easier to grip and flip food. I will keep them. I don't think I would recommend them to others.
👤I am very pleased with these tongs. It is nice to not be scratching my pans when I cook with them because the grips are perfect. I don't know how they wash in a machine, but they work like a dream, easy lock feature that is smooth with a big enough ring to be comfortable. It's a feat for someone with arthritis and gout in the hand to not have a problem gripping. Overall, very pleased. I highly recommend this product.
👤I picked up this pair of tongs without looking at them closely. The design was changed. The old design is no longer offered. There is a The end of the new design has grips. The old version is straight. You have to pinch foods to grab them. The surface area can be used to compensate for the force of grip. With the angle, I'm more likely to lose my grip on the items I'm working with. There is a Is it possible to flip a small steak? It's probably not a big deal. You're roasting vegetables. It was loud. Is it possible to flip a burger? It's best to crush and fall apart. There is a I had a white powdery build up after one wash. I ordered new tongs from a different brand and they are going in the trash.
👤I didn't expect these to be different from the OXO tongs I've used for years. Silicone is heavier than nylon and it really messes with the balance of the tongs. They are heavy, hard to open/ close and lack the precision of nylon or steel head tongs. I switched back to nylon tongs in the middle of cooking because I got frustrated trying to flip food. I thought it was because I have small hands and they are meant for giant super strong hands, but my husband thought they were awkward and imprecise. I am not sure what I would recommend for that, but I would recommend a pair of nylon or steel head tongs.
👤Silicone tongs were bought because metal ones scratched plastic items. The Silicone has withstood boiling water many times. There were no issues with the silicone. The tongs are heavy and offer a lot of resistance, which is noticeable after using them for a long period of time. I can't complain about the length of the description because I wish I had bought the longer version.
The lock on the tongs is closed for convenience. The knife is perfect for chopping, mincing, dicing and scooping vegetables. The handle design provides control. Even when wet, the handle is soft and comfortable. Hand wash with warm soapy water. The Japanese steel blade is 8 inches sharp.
👤These tongs do not hold up well. The tongs are designed to pinch by the tips. Large items can become unstable to hold and are hard to pick up. Even though I purchased them a few days ago from Amazon, they cannot be returned. I ordered a brand of tongs called Pro tong isi. That is the brand I had before. I thought I would try Oxo because they broke. These tongs are not the best of the Oxo products.
👤The quality went down from the first pair. My first pair had a lock. The cheap metal pull out on this pair rusted after the first wash. The rest of the tongs are the same. My question is, if it's already the best, why change it? Yogi Bera said, "If it ain't broken, don't fix it."
👤These tongs are the best I have ever owned. I initially purchased the 12-inch size, but I liked it so much that I then purchased the 9-inch and 16-inch sizes to complete the set. These tongs are some of my favorite kitchen tools. I've had tongs that have warped, melted, broke, and did a poor job grasping food. I was too cheap to buy nice tongs. It took me a little while to buy the more expensive OXO Good Grips Tongs, but I am really glad I did. The design. The frame is made of brushed steel and has Silicone inserts to give you more grip. The tongs have a lever on the back that can be used to close them. The part of the tongs that make contact with food is not made of steel. If you have non-stick cookware, certain coating types can be damaged by these, so I wanted to make sure that I cook on a cookware that is safe to use. This set with heads made of shir steel will yield maximum performance if your cookware can safely support shir utensils. The tongs are easy to grasp and do a great job of preventing food from slipping. The tongs maintain a stable grip even if the food is heavy. The finish is beneficial. It increases stain resistance and hides water markings. The Silicone inserts are tough, heat resistant, can be removed for cleaning or replacement, and firmly lock into place so they don't pop out randomly. The hanging hole is convenient, the mechanism to lock these closed is large and easy to use, strong as can be, and accessible, even with gloves/mitts on. After many years of use, the spring still shows no sign of fatigue. The hinge is heavy-duty and has not developed excessive play. My tongs look and function the same as they did when I bought them. OXO spent a lot of time researching and developing a product that is very functional and durable. There is a Cleaning. These do not need special cleaning care. I clean these in the dishwasher without removing the inserts and they come out perfect. I clean them with a metal polish called Bar Keeper's Friend if there is a lot of caked-up food on them. The tongs have held up well to a lot of cleaning. How much is it? SIZES---WHICH SIZE? There is a The size I use the most is the 12-inch. I love the 16-inch because it gives me a nice distance between my hand and the hot popping grease. I use the smallest pot I can find, the 9-inch, but it is still great to have when I am making something in a smaller pot. If you are only going to purchase one size, I recommend the 12-inch. There is a This is an investment of a quality kitchen tool that will last. I understand where you are coming from, I've been there myself, and I can tell you that these cost more than many other tongs. I highly recommend spending the few extra bucks on the OXO Good Grips, as they are a good quality product, and will last a long time, even if you spend more money. When cooking more often one can save money and eat better, and it is possible to encourage cooking more often. I see quality tongs as an investment, like other premium kitchen tools. There is a caveat about this. The pictures show the different sizes of the tongs, with different angles showing the different features.

👤I love these! I have mild carpal tunnel syndrome, so larger tongs can be difficult for me, and these tweezers are just so easy to use. They are light, precise, and great when you want to not tear delicate foods. They don't replace the full sized tongs you would normally use for high flame grilling or really large foods, but for smaller things or more slippery items, they're fantastic, especially on our cast iron grill plate/griddle. They are sturdy, easy to clean, and take up almost no space in your kitchen utensils drawer or holder, so I would recommend them.
👤It has saved me from getting burned from taking things out of my air fryer, which is like a freekin box, because I have been using this for about 2 months. You have to either wipe them off quickly or put them in a cup to get some hot soapy hot water. I love em!
👤These are great additions to my kitchen. It's perfect for turning and moving food. Sometimes the standard tongs don't work as well as they could. Asparagus. There are french fries. It goes on. These are well made and attractive. They are a great value. You need these. You don't know it yet. I have worked in restaurants for 50 years and feel qualified to comment on these. The are great!
👤The size on both pieces is very handy.
👤I love using these for smaller cuts of meat.
👤It looks like pictures. It's great to use with tortillas or food.
👤The steel isn't the thickest but it's decent quality and they aren't meant to be used to grab a turkey with. Overall, pretty solid.
👤I've never used a better tongs. It makes turning bacon easy.
👤The box was worn out and the3/4 were bent in it. I got a refund after returning it.
👤Hlt was versprochen. Die Qualitt ist gut.
👤It was easy to use. It's Sturdy enough for meat or small vegetables. Love it.
👤The tools are perfect for cooking.
👤I decided on this one because I was looking for a set for a while. Exactly what I wanted. I will order another set.
The multi-purpose scissors tongs are good for turning and cutting all kinds of food, such as fish, crab, chicken, turkey, burger, asparagus, vegetable salad, ice block, taco and so. These tongs have curves in the right places. A bend in the handles means you can rest them on the edge of the pan, and keep the heads off the counter, so they stay sanitary. The tongs have a mechanism similar to a retractable pen. It is so easy to open or close your Clongs, you can do it with one hand. The kitchen tongs are dishwasher safe. DeLICATE PRECISION The rounded design of the Clongs feels like an extension of your hand. The arms are formed in a C- channel for strength andDurability. Click, grip, serve. The heads are made of silicone. The waffle head design makes it easy to pick up small bits. The cookware is heat resistant to 500F and won't scratch it. Dreamfarm dreamt up functional kitchenware and home accessories as creative solutions to everyday problems. Their funky collection has a great gift or item to complete your home.
👤Most of the time, the one click lock doesn't work. See the video. There is a It was returned. There is a mess. Doesn't work as described. Won't be open or closed. It doesn't know what you want. The button is not easy to use. It doesn't do anything. Don't buy.
👤The review was written after the product was received. You design beautiful and useful products. The Mini-Supoon is very useful. I like them so much that I have about two more. I ordered the 12-inch Clongs based on that experience. I was sad when I opened the package. When speed is of the essence, these Clongs will be used. The ends of the Clongs are soft and wonderful to grab. The metal between the two ends of the tool has sharp edges, which will hurt people with dry skin or sensitive hands. If the manufacturer of the Clongs can do a better job with finishing this product, please take a look at them. If you improve the edges of this product, you will sell more of them.
👤The hold up off the counter feature is ok, but the tap to lock/unlock is really cool, and they are strong enough to actually put some force on them, but I don't like the idea of the Silicon. The Silicone gets super slick as soon as it gets wet or oily, but that is what it is. I would like to see an all metal grabber option. The edges of the metal are very sharp, and it makes them a bit uncomfortable to hold and use. The sharp edges are worse since the way you lock andunlock them is to hold them and have to push the back tip against something, putting sliding pressure on the edges. I am going to break out some tools and see if I can make them a little bit better by polishing them myself. I will add this after I try that for a bit.
👤I couldn't get it back in the envelope fast enough to return it as soon as I opened it. The price is high. I was expecting a much bigger feeling tool. The metal edges are sharp. The tongs don't open and close smoothly. A terrible product.
👤I thought these would be hard to hold onto when I first grasped the tool. After I unlocked it, I had to hit it hard with my hand to release it, and it pinched my finger, so I almost dropped it. My second thought was, "These are hard to hold on to." The handles look like they're made from a cheap brushed aluminum tube, with half-round shells pinned with a rivet at one end and paddles on the other. They are slippery even when not wet or oily. The spring that keeps the handles spread open is a little stiff, but something is causing it to squeak. The lock/release button needs to be hit hard to actuate. It can pinch the palm of your hand if you close the handles with your fingers. It will be difficult to use and it does not feel good in the hand. I haven't had time to test this tool. I'll have to look for tongs that can take some heat.

👤I used to be a line cook for 16 years. I was skeptical of finding a similar product at such a low price, because the quality of the product was equal to the price of the kitchen supply. I ordered a pair to try. I ordered 10 more to use as stocking stuffers for family members after two weeks of use. The chef and other cooks that I worked with would remove the locking mechanism from their tongs the minute they got a new pair. It didn't take me long to start doing the same thing that I 888-276-5932 Not messing with the lock is much more user friendly. I love this product. It's easy to use and clean the dishwasher. It's strong enough to remove pizza pans, sizzlers, and other items from the oven instead of using potholders. It's like having a third hand when I use it to remove hot lids from pots, turn bacon, grill steaks and chops.
👤The tongs I bought were to pick up dog doo. The best idea ever. I can put 10 land mines into one bag without having to get my face close to the bag or getting more poo into a bag that already has stink nuggets in it. There was no turd on the hands. There is a My dog is a master of his craft. She poops more than she eats. She is the golden goose of deuce. There is a They are called The Doodoo Tongs, and they live outside. There is a Do you mean that they should never be stored near your barbecue? Are you on that?
👤I can't remember how many tongs I used. I bought the most expensive ones because I thought they would be better. The part that lets you lock the tongs closed is the problem. I worked in fast food when I was in college. I don't remember if the tongs broke, but they are used for everything there. There is a I have had no problems after buying the simplest I could. If you want to store them, stick them in a drawer and hold them closed with a rubber band. They're cheap and definitely the way to go.
👤We purchased an 18 for cooking crabs and a 12 for the rest. The tongs are made of heavy steel. You can find cheaper and shinier things, but not made tongs. This well.
👤Poor design. The tong's sharp inner edges pinched my finger.
👤For some reason, full-metal kitchen tongs are hard to find. I went on the hunt after fighting flimsy plastic-ended tongs for a long time. There is a They are very sturdy and easy to hold. Since they are always sprung open, they are hard to store in drawers or containers, which is my only complaint. There is a They are very nice and well worth the money. If I need more, I will purchase these again.
The Precision Kitchenware Kitchen tongs are dishwasher safe and easy to clean. Simply put them in the dishwasher and you are done! You will get 3 pieces of extra-long tweezer tongs in total, which includes 1 piece of 28 cm/ 11 inches long barbecue clamp with holes in it, and 1 piece of 30 cm/ 12 inches long round head tweezer tong. The quality of the extra long tweezer tongs is reliable, they are good temperature resistance, safe to apply, not easy to rust or corrode, and practical to apply for a long time. The gripping force is nice, which can firmly grip the food and avoid falling, and the round and pointed barbecue clamps have anti-slip lines on the tip to increase friction. The extra long handle is comfortable to hold, it can keep your hands away from the grill, and the tongs have non-slip patterns in the middle part, which is convenient for your hands to hold them firmly. Their tongs are multi-purpose and can be used for a wide range of purposes.
👤They fulfilled a need. I use plastic tubes filled with water to make thermoses and drink containers. They are hard to get out when you want to replace them with fresh ones. These can get them out. I am going to have a good summer with icy drinks.
👤I feel like a real chef in my kitchen with these. I can't wait until I drop something between the cupboard and the range, because these babies are going to work to catch it. They are well made. I am telling you that they fancy it.
When you purchase this specialty cooking food tongs 12-Inch tool, you're offered a 100% customer satisfaction service. They will serve you until you get your 100% satisfaction if you contact them through your order. It is risk free to try it. It is made of high quality food grade steel. Useful for cooking, roasting and serving, tongs are 12 inches long. It's ideal for spearing a pickle, stir-frying, flipping tortillas, and sauteing. Small items can be lifted out easily with the help of the grooves.
👤The ridges/cuts in the portion that would pick up food is something that I don't understand. They are very sturdy and that makes them hard to clean. You could pick up Andy with these kitchen rings.
👤I thought I couldn't go too far wrong for $20 because I saw this type of utensil. These can be used for many things, including turning and serving bacon, grabbing things off the grill, and pulling and draining pasta. I am going to buy a second set for my sister.
👤Anyone who fries food has been challenged to give over a single small item in a pan of many small things. Think of shrimp, sausage, etc. The tool turns a tweezer into a kitchen aid. You can pick out items that are ready to be turned over in the pan while leaving remaining items in place. No more trying to turn an item with a fork, it's not necessary. This tool is very useful. Great function at a low cost. It is a great value in my kitchen.
👤Someone is cooking with something. She put the sauce out of the package. I thought to myself, I need those. I found the 2 set when I was searching. It is great to cook bacon, flip items, stir, and get the last drips of dressing out of the packet.
👤It was well made. Happy with how they work. I'm older and realize without having some "spring" they wouldn't open quickly when you go to pick up the next thing. Excellent tool!
👤Great tools! I have been looking for a set of long tweezers that would not break or split on me. I haven't had them for a while but I've been cooking more. Some food items are too small for traditional tongs and they would eventually just dig into the food I'm cooking, causing it to fall apart. These don't do that. They're easy to clean, but be aware of the grooves in the wide-tipped one, food can get stuck. I don't find myself reaching for the fine-point tweezers as much, but I'm a more kind of person and an extra tool will be used one way or another. A great set of tools for an amateur chef.
👤Tweezers are thick and nice. They broke. It came apart at the end. I will not buy from this maker again.
👤I was hoping for more than these tweezers. The construction seems solid but not excessive in terms of weight or spring tension. Theripping grooves are not raised. The finish is free of burrs and sharp edges. The tips on both pairs should be rounded to prevent scratching. They perform as expected. They are magnetic and can be stuck to a magnetic knife rack.
👤Excellent value for your money. It's great to grab food from large jars.
👤They were long enough to be used for pressing on a laptop graphics card.
👤It took a bit to get here, but they were happy with it.
They are dishwasher safe. Throw them in the dishwasher and it will do the rest. After every use, please dry them. They are a trusted American brand in kitchen wares. If you don't like your kitchen food tongs, you can get a full money-back guarantee. The set includes 12” and 9” tongs. It is made of durable steel. The ends of the food containers are rounded. The locks are closed with a pull-tab. The loop on the handle is convenient for hanging. Features Babish logo.
👤Great tongs. I can tell they'll last me a long time because they feel very sturdy. The reason for the 3 star review is because I think I got a set that was used and returned, as there were scratches on both tongs. This isn't enough to worry me that much and it won't affect the performance so I probably won't go through the hassle of a return/exchange. Normally I wouldn't say it's the product's fault since it's the store's fault and not the seller. I believe the seller's fault is that the tongs' packaging came in a box with a shipping label to an Amazon warehouse. I paid for a new product, not a used one, because I likebabish and it pains me to do this.
👤Really professional. These are grades A to C. I like OXO products but these all steel tongs are perfect. Hardly any wiggle and play. Don't look anywhere else. These are the ones you need.
👤Babish has released some tongs that say "Babish". They're nice. They feel sturdy, you can lock them closed, and pick up things with ease. There is a If you have some oil splatter happening, the smaller one is too small, but you can use it for all of the other standard uses. I'd rather have two tongs.
👤Wow. The material is very high quality. I could see this lasting a long time. Very pretty. And does the job. If you're like me and have small hands, and you use your tongs a lot, they're not light weight like cheap tongs, and they're more of an issue than a nit picky thing. Again, that's just me. I would choose these over cheap tongs. It was pretty cheap to buy these so that's a plus.
👤The quality of these tongs is good. It seems like they will last a long time. I would like the lock feature to be operated with one hand. I have a pair of tongs that have a gravity lock that can be activated by tipping them up or down. These tong are great. I would recommend them.
👤The tongs are great for the price. I don't feel like they're going to bend if I squeeze them too hard because they're made of steel. The tongs are firmly closed because of the tight locking mechanism. The non-Silicone ends are good for grilling. The branding is small and you can see it at the end of one of the forks. Well built and worth the value.
👤The tongs are the best I have ever owned. It's important to have a heft to them that one would expect in a professional setting.
👤These are very strong. I can't wait to use them. I was so excited that my son thought I was crazy. Thanks for a great product! Will be buying other sizes. Great price too!

👤These tongs are easy to clean. It's great for using an air fryer. The 2 sizes are pink. Would buy again. Thank you for reading my review, I hope it helped.
👤I use these all the time to flip food over in my non stick pans without having to worry about scratching the surface. You can lock them shut for easy storage. These were recommended by a PBS show and they have never disappointed in their performance.
👤I was delighted to get a replacement pair of tongs and a smaller one for the same price as the competition. These are even better than the tongs they are replacing because of the improved locking mechanism.
👤Is there a difference between t-shirts and thongs? The wear and tear on air fryer non stick surface will be saved by these. Just as described. It is easy to clean and last for sure. Order as described, the easy close and lock and open clip is on the bottom of the thongs.
👤When I ordered them, I expected them to be similar. Good value for money. I would recommend them to others.
👤These tongs are great. Two sizes are used with a variety of kitchen and grill duties. Sturdy, coated tong tips and ability to lock in place. Just what we needed. Pick up a set.
👤I like the tongs a lot. They have a good feeling for the hand. I like the thumb rest. They are sturdy and hold up well.
👤I got these for an airdrie that recommended Silicone tongs to not scratch the inside surface.
👤Perfectas, los dos son ideales. Desde cocinar. Para ensaladas.
The size is 29.2 inches. The package includes 2 tongs. The kitchen cooking stove is 30 cm in length. The kitchen tweezer tong is made of high quality STAINLESS STEEL, it is easy to clean and sturdy. Aquarium plants,chemical medical tools, and cooking are some of the things that the tweezers can be used for. The design makes it easy to lift small items out.
👤I like the size of the cake for placement of small items.
👤Who knew how much you needed until you bought it? It's nice. When the glass fell into the garbage disposal, it was useful.
👤They were covered in a slimy substance. They are a bit flimsy and I haven't really wanted to use them.
👤The tongs are perfect for turning over small items.
👤I like this tool. It's easy to use and clean. I would buy again.
👤They are hard to clean because of the deep grooves at the bottom, but I love using them.
👤A piece of kitchen equipment. It's great for making drinks and flipping small items. You can beat it for the price and quality.

👤The product is suppose to be great. The tips of the tongs don't meet completely, so wet foods slip out of them. I would like the spring to be stronger so it would open fully when I unlocked them. They work well for most things and feel good in my hand.
👤The squared end helps me grab larger food items out of the oven. It works better than the thinner tongs. The length keeps me from burning myself. Doesn't hurt my non stick coating. It's easy to lick and open.
👤I ordered these tongs even though they are black and not my signature red because I wanted my food item securely held as I flipped or lifted it. Does the job!
👤I have several tongs for use with metal pots and pans, but needed a serious tong for use with non-stick cookware and when I wanted something other than a spatula for moving food around. These are perfect. I bought ones with an end. The squared off edge makes these more effective. If they are offered in a smaller size, I will buy them again. Highly recommended.
👤If the lock mechanism were different, I would love it. You cannot operate the lock with one hand. This locking mechanism requires both hands to use and it just doesn't work for me, when you have multiple things on the stove at the same time. It makes the tool useless.
👤I use these with my air fryer. There is a The locking mechanism helps keep them in the drawer. The locking mechanism is easy to use with one hand. There is a The grip is comfortable and they're well made. They can be used on the grill or stovetop. There was no burning of fingers or scratching non stick surfaces. I like to cook with them. There is a Throw them in the dishwasher and they're easy to wash. The price is great value for these.
👤The air fryer I bought had a non-stick surface. I needed some tongs with a silicone tip so I wouldn't scratch the air fryer. These are perfect!
👤The tong is easy to open and close with a simple press. Looking for a small size. Will purchase more.
