Originally I purchased these tongs to be used with my Breville Gourmet Wok which has a non-stick finish. I primarily use them for dishing out food from the wok and they work nicely. Mine were lime green, btw..

But I found a better use for them. I have this greenhouse window over the sink with two shelves. The upper shelf has 8 orchids in 3 and 4 inch pots. In order to water those plants, I had to go into the garage and get the step stool, climb on the stool and bring down all of the plants to the counter, water and drain, climb back on the stool and put the plants back on the shelf. I have to admit the uppershelf was not watered as frequently as it should.

After seeing how well the gripper tongs worked at actually gripping things other than food, I tried them on the pots on the upper shelf. Grabbed a pot, watered, drained, and put each one back up on the shelf with just the gripper tongs. So easy breezy... !! I still have to tippy toe, so I'm thinking of getting the 16" version of these tongs eventually.

I purchased these at a local store after trying them out. They are so impressive I want to let everybody know about them.

These are the best soft-tip tongs I've ever used. Nice wide tips that work well on many foods. Like another reviewer suggested, these are great for spaghetti.

There is a negative review here claiming these are thin and poorly made. I'm completely baffled by that review as these are made of VERY thick, well-formed stainless steel with firm silicone grips and tips. Very well designed and made!

The locking mechanism is simple and easy to use. The end of the lock is covered in silicone so it wont slip or scratch if you press it on a surface to unlock them. Nice touch! The round silicone loop fits comfortably in the palm of your hand when holding the tongs near the end. The hole is actually much larger than on the Ekco tongs I own. Loops any bigger than these just get in the way. (Like my Weber BBQ tongs.)

I like these so well I'm buying another for backup in case they discontinue this model. I'd hate to be without 'em! (I'm going to buy the 9 inch too.)

I have owned many sets of tongs and tossed most of them out because they created such a mess in my utensil drawer and were the type that didn't close...These are great and I really like the silicone ends that are so high heat tolerant....I use them for just about everything including "dishing out" spaghettti and they close easily and stay that way in the drawer...I bought a set for my niece and she loves them, too....

Removing dishes from a hot water bath after baking in the oven used to be a real challenge.
They would slip and slide with regular tongs, often causing me a few burned fingers.
Using potholders was even more of an adventure, often resulting in a very hot and wet potholder, burned fingers and a corner of the pot holder dipping into one of my dishes and spoiling the result.
I don't know how I survived without these tongs. I stir with them, flip and retrieve.
They are very versatile in the kitchen. I am very happy with the purchase.
I have seen similar ones in the stores since, but they do not have the gripper feature. The gripper feature is what saves my fingers from boiling water burns. I like it.
This is a very useful tool. I plan to order two more so I can give them to my mother and my daughter.

These gripper tongs are fabulous. They make turning things in the frying pan very easy, and I have used them while turning steaks on the grill and in the oven. They are comfortable to hold and attractive.

These are exactly what I was looking for. The work for pretty much all of the cooking in the kitchen. I even use them to help me grab the coffee mugs on the top level.

I was first wowed by these tongs when I could so easily pick up small cut up steamed beats. These were really slippery and were pretty small and these tongs had no problems at all quickly picking them all up. Wow! Some of the great features I have come to appreciate is that you can lock it at any level so that it won't fully open to your desired width, it has comfortable silicon pads on the handles to make it easy to hold, the blades are pretty thin to be able to get under foods, and I love that the blades have ribs to grip food better.

The tongs work fine. The handles are formed from open channel steel. If you dip these into anything, the only way to clean out the handles is with a straw cleaning brush. They are fine for picking stuff off a baking sheet as shown in the picture.

At first, i was looking at Oxo's nylon tong but quickly realized that nylon can melt in high heat and then came across this product. I love this product so far. I like the fact that you can use it as a regular tong and as a gripper..it's like getting two tools at once.
