For the first time since I left home, I actually purchased tongs as I've always seen how my mom usse them all the time to move "stuff" around with much ease. So I got the babies and they are awesome. No more trying to turn over food in the oven and fearing first degree burns if you don't happen to grab the food well.
The tongs are really sturdy, lock easily to take less space, and the nylon heads don't destroy your teflon as metal ones tend to. They also stand up to a lot of heat so they don't melt.
These won't change your life but if you need tongs these are awesome. Now if OXO could make something to make me a cook.
One of the best "surprise" features it has is the lock. It keeps its lock - even in the dishwasher. It is, as the same time, smooth and adjustable enough for me to unlock them with one hand if needed (and at the grill, this comes in QUITE handy!).
COMPLETELY dishwasher safe.
They are indespensible to me, and I am going to invest in a few more to have around the house. What more could you ask for?
big mistake !!! maybe in 2004 oxo was using better plastic, but in 2009 the plastic they use is simply awful: the tips melted the moment they touched an iron pan on low-to-medium heat.
we have old plastic utensils from a dollar store and they perform much better; at the very least they do not melt as quickly as this brand new oxo product.
we bought these in a set with two turners and those were not great either. back to the store the set goes. wish someone warned us about melting plastic - having bits and pieces of black plastic in your dish is not a good thing.
will try tongs with silicone tips next.
If you are learning to cook stir frys and such, use this instead of the heat resistant spatualas. I've had them melt even though they've said they won't.
Only negative is that they will melt if you leave them in an empty pan on high heat for too long, so they might not work well for camping. I was able to get the melted plastic out of the pan and the tongs are still very usable :-) Even so, I'd buy these again in a heartbeat.
Rating: 3/5 stars
I had high hopes for these tongs, after seeing them recommended on America's Test Kitchen. They are indeed very ergonomic, attractive, and nice to use, but they have a significant flaw.
* Very nice ergonomic design.
* Helpful locking pull-tab, with hanging hole.
* Soft tips that are friendly to non-stick pans.
* NYLON HEADS: Oxo's use of nylon, instead of silicone, for the heads is a significant design blunder that costs it a full 1.5 stars, IMO. A temp of 400F may sound like a lot, but it's an entirely commonplace temperature when you're sauteing/browning, shallow frying, or grilling (ex: chicken cutlets, cubed meat for stew, bacon, etc.), and if you expose these tongs for a fraction of a second too long, the tips can melt, ruining both the tongs and whatever you're cooking ... which IMO is a significant flaw. That pretty much eliminates these tongs from use for many, but not all, sauteeing tasks.
* ROUNDED TEETH: Another design flaw (this one minor) is the rounded teeth of the heads, which compromises the ability of these tongs to grasp and lift anything other than small soft items. For example, just a few minutes ago, I tried to remove a smoked pork hock from a pot of broth, and despite ample hand strength it still jumped out of the tongs and splashed stock in all directions. Trying to compensate by turning the tongs, so that one head is below that's being lifted helps slightly, but causes liquid to pool in the handle shaft, which leaks out when you transfer whatever you're moving to another pan or bowl.Read more ›
