Featuring a convenient locking mechanism provides the versatility to securely store the tongs in a drawer or in a crock. Dishwasher safe for quick and easy clean up.
Whether you're grilling chicken, steaming corn on the cob, or serving salad, these tongs are sure to be helpful. With a durable, rustproof, stainless-steel handle and nylon tips, which resist heat up to 400 degrees, this tool is ideal for lifting and flipping hot foods. Plus, its 12-inch length lets you keep your distance from a sizzling grill or a boiling pot of water. In addition, smooth grips along the tongs' edges allow you to easily pick up tender meat without piercing it. But maybe the most handy feature these tongs offer is their locking mechanism. By pushing down the ring at the top of the handle you lock the tongs into a closed position, making it easy to store them in a drawer or transport them to a barbecue. To open, simply pull up on the ring. --Cristina Vaamonde

That being said, the spoon is sturdy so perfectly suited for sauteing almost anything. The cup of the spoon is rather shallow, so it does not double very well as a ladle, but does work very well for stir frying and serving veggies or cubed proteins.
The handle stays cool while cooking, although if left resting on the edge of a hot pot, the heat will transfer.
The nylon spoon, if left resting on the edge of a hot pan, may be damaged, so take caution to use a spoon rest. I will mention however, that the durable nylon material did not actually melt (like plastic would have), but rather the edge of my pan just created two "dents" where the spoon was resting.
One of my favorite things about this line of Amco spoons, ladles and spatulas, is that the handles are sturdy, yet flat.
I keep my cooking utensils in a countertop crock, and have always looked for utensils that don't have thick, round or bulky handles that take up unnecessary space in the crock. These fit the bill perfectly.
This spatula is almost as good as our old one. As shown, it's two piece metal and nylon and they are attached together very well; no gaps or nooks exist to trap food or dirt making it very easy to clean. The blade is stiff with very little give which is exactly what I was looking for. The edge has a curve to it so it's not as good as deglazing a pan and the surface of the blade is not completely flat, it has little lips close to the handle that I suppose add support to blade. Not a big deal but keep it in mind if you plan on flipping more delicate things like fish.
I foresee using this spatula for a long time because it is well built and a very useful in the kitchen.
The worst part is that the handle is straight. This means that if you set it on the counter, the only way to pick it up is to slide it off the counter. This is a huge pain, and is a departure from their previous design that had a curved handle, making it a snap to pick up off the counter. You can see the contrast with the previous design in the picture (where I've included a wider spatula that came in a set with the one I hoped to replace with this purchase).
The second problem is that it's much floppier than the old one I bought.
Really sad that they've abandoned a good design they had.
And, like all Amco products, it's a metal handle, so it will get hot if you have it resting for long periods of time on a hot pan or something.
But, if you're like me, you accept these things to have a kitchen utensil/tool that doesn't look a plastic toy. Also, the spatula part is firm. No worries of it being unable to handle the weight of a packed omelette or whatever it is you're trying to pick up/flip.
* Nice, thin blade, perfect for turning
* Super stiff for in-pan chopping and scraping
* Thin, broad handle feels surprisingly good in my hand.
* Stainless handle will not melt. Our EKCO's plastic handle was creased and cratered with years of mistakes and accidents.
* Stainless handle will get super hot and burn you if you're not careful.
* Edges of the stamped sheet metal handle feel a bit sharp, not enough to cut, but enough to annoy. Less than 2 minutes with a metal file broke these hard edges nicely.
Overall, a great tool for the price. I've ordered 2 already. I'm looking forward to wielding these for the next decade or so.
