Purchased quite a few pairs of tongs in my life;some turned out to be flimsy,not well engineered,etc.,but these Cuisipro tongs are quite good.I prefer them even to my All Clad tongs,which are very good.They're tough yet won't rip the a delicate breading or batter,can pick up baked goods without mashing them,can pick up an entire roast easily,plus they have a really good tactile response.Some of these responses might seem over the top for just a simple pair of tongs,but c'est le vie.........

I have had them 3 weeks and they are starting to get rusty red spots on them now. None of my other equipment that I run trough the same dish washer is getting rust spots. So I know its not the detergent that I use causing it.

The Cuisipro 12" locking tongs are perfect -- durable and well designed, and suitable for professional chefs.

I love that the tongs are all metal. That makes them easy to clean, and there is nothing that can melt in a high-temperature situation.

The locking mechanism, which you pull outward to lock closed, is strong and secure. (Some other brands, like Amco, have a ring you push *in* to lock. On a pair I owned, that ring quickly deformed and would get stuck inside the handles, without locking anything.)

The Cuisipro locking tongs are my ideal tongs. I would recommend them for any kitchen.

A few years ago I was gifted a set of long tongs like this which were hands down the best I've ever used. A few months ago my favorite tongs walked off somewhere and I needed a replacement set. I've gone to Sur La Table, Bed Bath & Beyond and other kitchen supply stores only to be disappointed with their selection. Everything I found was either too short or flimsy and did not have a good mechanism to lock the tongs closed.

I didn't know where my original tongs were purchased from, but I remember they were stamped with "Cuisipro". Luckily a search on Amazon brought up these tongs and I was pleasantly surprised when I found that these tongs were almost the exact same ones like I had before. These tongs are great for grilling and the locking mechanism to close the tongs is the best (push or pull on the the "ring" at the base of the tong). The length is really nice to prevent scorched hands and I have no problem with gently picking up and moving food with these tongs.

At $10, this beats anything from OXO...and I'm normally a OXO fan.

If you could only have one pair of tongs, these should be the ones. They are an all-purpose size (12 inches) and you can use their fairly precise tips to turn bacon on your BBQ grill - and many brands are not made with enough precision to do that. Okay - technically, you can turn the bacon anywhere, but that's where I do it, and my super long Weber tongs won't do - not enough precision. The silicon tipped Cuisipro's I've had for 10 years - while useful for non stick pans and other things - are not perfect for fine work on stainless steel cooking implements like my aformentioned bacon on the grill scenario. I have a bunch of cheaper serving tongs - too thin and/or short. No, these Cuisipro's are made to be used...often. Just the right tension on the spring. Easy to open with one hand - just push them against your body (okay, again, that's just my thing) and the spring slides up so you can open them. That's how you'd want it - one hand only when you need them ASAP. When the turning crisis is over, you can afford to use two hands to close them.

Short story - I thought I owned these. Then one day the rusted, wire spring broke through the rubber insert on the handle and stuck inside my palm. And yes, that hurt. And yes - you guessed it - they were NOT Cuisipro's - just a similar looking brand. I examined my real Cuisipros (12 inch stainless with silicon tipped ends) and noted the spring was a wide piece of steel (not a convention wire wound spring) that had NOT rusted and couldn't break through rubber inserts - particulary because there were no inserts. The wide steel spring is a superior design, regardless of the handle. I could have fixed the old ones, but my sore palm would never forgive me and would always hesitate when I went to grab them.

The best available design. The locking mechanism is superb compared to 99% of alternate brands. My only beef is that you can still seriously pinch yourself in between the arms where the raw metal edges approximate when the sides are pressed together. I'll bet everyone has done this at least once and drawing blood is not uncommon either. If they would fix this design aspect they would be perfect.

My previous "stainless" tongs failed because the hinge/pivot spring rusted and snapped. This will never happen with these tongs since the part that holds the tongs open is not a cheap coil spring, but a substantial piece of tensioned stainless steel that serves triple duty as the spring, a hanging loop, and a decorative element. I haven't bought a poorly built Cuisipro product to date. For those reviewing that have expressed dissatisfaction with the open U design with the handle, I'm not sure where the problem lies or what you may be cooking that is making your tongs so difficult to clean. The design makes for a light but strong product that doesn't hide food particles and bacteria inside a tubular channel. If you're a buyer and cook that recognizes both quality and good design, these tongs will not disappoint.
