Size: 12-InchColor: Black
The main reason I purchased these silicone tipped kitchen tongs are for safely removing my ceramic ramekins from a Bain Marie bath. That they do well as well as for anytime I want to move something hot without scratching something. The working ends are covered with a thick layer of silicone. But because the tips are not scalloped and are not very cupped (like my Edlund Restaurant Tongs - Scalloped: 12 INCHs'), the working ends are not efficient for picking up or grasping cooked food. And the tong lock is too loose: it does not take much to open these tongs which is annoying since the tongs keep opening up in my storage crock.

Unlike nylon tipped tongs, I do not expect these silicone ends to fray with use like nylon. I've owned and used Ecko and Calphalon nylon spatulas which are "safe" for non-stick cooking surfaces. But the heated ends of both spatulas began melting and fraying with use. I'm not interested in introducing frayed nylon in my diet.

PROS: Great non-slip silicone working ends for removing ramekins from a Bain Marie. Is heat resistant and should not melt or fray like nylon

CONS: The lock opens too easily and the working ends do not grip food efficiently and effectively.

When these tongs arrived I could not believe the old-fashion quality of this product! It is sturdy and the 9" size fits the hand comfortably. I used it today to turn a steak instead of using a fork. The control is perfect and makes this product safer to use than traditional tong designs. I especially like the sure-fire locking mechanism.

Love these! All kinds of kitchen applications. I love that I have tongs that do not scratch any of my coated cook and bake ware. Then just throw them in the dishwasher. I do have long versions, but the short ones tend to be more versatile for me. And they are easier to put in the dishwasher.

I have no complaints about these.

Great product. My daughter used mine at Thanksgiving and loved it. I purchased this one for her for Christmas. Grip is great. It locks closed, taking up less drawer space and is easy to use.

These are my favorite tongs. I own a few pair in different colors and sizes. These I use most. They are the perfect size for everyday cooking. non stick is a bonus or a hindrance until you learn to compensate for the slipperiness! I would and have recommended these to anyone who asks. The locking feature is great for storage.

Works exactly as you'd expect. Locking mechanism is easy to operate and helps with storage or holding a very small item. They feel very solid and well-made and I'll probably buy another of their tongs, probably the longest one.

It's hard to grab anything that lies flat in a pan or on a counter top.
