Hope this helps someone else know better if it's what they want.
Tongs are worth their weight in gold; a spatula or spoon have their uses, but they're not cut out for universal cooking service. Tongs are good for just about anything that's not sloppy or squishy. It's like having a heatproof extension of your hand available.
All you ever see is the standard metals tongs, though, and those won't do unless you're BBQing or if you cook on stainless or anodized (and you can't poke a lot in either). I didn't want plastic-tipped tongs, so these fit the bill perfectly.
They are a good length. They don't open too wide to be a nuisance when placed on a counter- or stove-top. They're sturdy. They're great!
They have a nice large U-spring lock at the top and a loop for hanging. I removed the loop as I use a utensil holder and found it got in the way for the lock. A good job by Amco on these.
The spring action of these silicone tongs is really too stiff. Frying a couple of small batches of chicken fingers, I could feel my forearm starting to tire a bit, (and I'm 6 ft., 240 lbs.).
The silicone surface show almost no wear. I have had other silicone products where the edge has frayed. The edges are still intact.
The metal surfaces show no discoloration or rust.
Overall one of my favorite pair of tongs that work well over a variety of uses. The one place I do not use them is when deep frying.

Use this often and has held up really well. I run it through the dishwasher frequently and there's no wear and tear. RecommendPublished on May 12, 2010 by Michelle A. Frericks
Silicone is the way to go!
SO far no rust and easy to wash in dishwasher.
long enough for the general use, but a little too stiff.
also, because it's silicon things slip too easily. Read more

Don't you just love a product that looks good and gets the job done too? There is nothing worse than a pair of thongs that don't grip the food in the pan. This gismo is great. Read morePublished on June 27, 2009 by D. Greene
