The rubber handles put these tongs over the top. Get 'em greasy, get 'em wet, doesn't matter, they won't slip. Another bonus - where other tongs get too hot these are fine because the rubber stays cool. You can safely use these to fish things out from a pot of boiling water! Try that with a pair of all metal tongs... ouch!
I also like the ability to lock them in the closed position. You will not regret buying these tongs.
The 12-inch is the best size for all-around use, and the 9-inch is best for salads and the like.
The locking feature is great so you don't have to have 16" tongs splayed open all the time. They lock in the closed position by pulling on a metal ring at the end of the tongs. I tied a leather loop to the ring, so I can hang them and lock them in one motion. To unlock, I just press the ring against my body - all done with one hand.
To top it all off, they are sold at a great price. Don't let the fact that these tongs are not advertised as BBQ tongs fool you - they're great for grilling.
The longer handle, insulated with plastic, means your hands stay cool and more importantly, at a distance from spitting bacon, hot slices of eggplant or a frying chicken breast. They also work fine on the outdoor barbecue grill, though LONGER tongs would be good if your grill is larger than my puny one.
I've had a lot of tongs that have warped, melted, broke, did a poor job grasping food, etc. Part of this reason was because I was too cheap to buy nice tongs. It took me a little while to bring myself to buy these more expensive OXO Good Grips Tongs, but I am really glad I did.
The construction of these is a brushed stainless steel frame with (removable) rubberized silicone inserts to give you more grip. These tongs can lock closed via a mechanism which is a pull-push lever located on the back. The portion of the tongs that makes contact with food is bare stainless steel. As I cook on stainless clad cookware that is safe to use stainless utensils with, this is exactly what I wanted (if you have non-stick cookware, certain coating types can be damaged by these as a heads-up.) If your cookware can safely support stainless utensils, THIS set with stainless steel heads will yield maximum performance & durability.
THE BUILD QUALITY & PERFORMANCE
Beyond everything else, these tongs are SUPER easy to grasp food with and do a fantastic job at preventing food from slipping. Even if that food is heavy or covered in [slippery] oil, these tongs maintain a stable grip. The finish is simple, consistent, and functionally beneficial. Brushed stainless hides scratch/usage/hard water markings, plus it increases stain/corrosion resistance. The silicone inserts are tough, heat-resistant, can be removed for cleaning or replacement, and firmly lock into place so they do not pop out randomly.Read more ›

Well-constructed tongs, sure, but I have a serious issue here: it's been about six years since I bought these, and I only use them once every few months. Read morePublished 4 days ago by Teh Arbitrageur
These are really nice tongs. I have two different silicone tongs, but needed something that would better grip some of my different foods. These have been great. Read morePublished 6 days ago by Katie
