Product Description

Size: 9-Inch

Amazon.com

Not only do these 9-inch tongs cushion hands and provide thumb rests, which are useful when gripping heavy objects, but the nylon heads won’t scratch nonstick cookware. Doubling as a hang loop, a tab on the bottom pulls out to lock the stainless-steel tongs shut, allowing them to slip easily into a drawer. The nylon heads are heat-resistant to 400 degrees Fahrenheit, and the tongs are dishwasher-safe. --Ann Bieri

Product Description

Finally, the perfect Tongs for use with nonstick cookware. These OXO GOOD GRIPS Tongs feature the sturdy stainless steel construction and soft grips you expect, with nylon heads you need to protect your cookware. The nylon heads are heat resistant to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Lock the Tongs in the closed position for convenient storage.

The nylon heads are nice because I can use them on my nice non-stick pans without worry of scratching.

Care must be taken when cooking over moderately high heat. I'm not talking about leaving the tongs in the pan, but cases where the tongs graze the hot pan bottom. The nylon tip guards will, I'm sorry to say, easily melt. Perhaps the next great step by Oxo will be the use of silicone for those edges that are likely to melt.

Size Name: 12-Inch Verified Purchase
This is my very first non-entertainment related purchase as I can barely boil water so kitchen stuff is not usually on the things to buy list; notwithstanding most of the cookware/utensils that I have are OXO as they tend to be of excellent quality and easy on the hands.
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.

I have had several tongs sets given to me, both for kitchen and grill. None of which have done a good enough job for me to keep them. THIS one, however, has been a Godsend. I use these both in my kitchen with my cast iron as well as out on the grill. They pick up even the heaviest of of pork loins while at the same time allowing me to turn over some more delicate items. I can saute, turn, pluck, pinch, and grab.

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?

after reading many reviews, we thought these tongs will be useful for many different recipes with all our pans - iron, stainless, non-stick.
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're looking for a great set of tongs, look no further. I just love these things. I have a terrible habit of burning my hands but with the rubber coating on these, I don't ever burn myself. They're great for flipping everything from fish to burgers on the grill, or the grilled veggies. They make a fantastic toy too and easily withstand going from the grill, to the dishwasher, to the hands of a wiley boy with no problems. Great product!

I've researched a lot and There aren't many with the nylon heads. This one is the best and most sturdy, best made.

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.

I have the same tongs with metal heads and always gingerly pick up whatever I'm cooking for fear of scratching my pots and pans. I usually end up getting stung by popping oil more often than not because of this. But with these bad boys, there's no fear of scratching so it sames me and my cookware!

These have become a must have in my kitchen! They are perfect for flipping things and the nylon heads make them safe to use with non-stick pans.

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.
