After using nothing but Edlund commercial tongs for years, I thought I would give these a try based on all the positive reviews. Yes, they are indeed miles ahead of most of the junk tongs that people have in their kitchen, but still fall far short of the real commercial grade tongs in terms of both construction and performance. The most striking difference can be seen in the photo that I uploaded. You can see that on the Edlund tongs, the tips are parallel throughout the "working area" of the tong, whereas the progressive tongs only touch at the very tips. This means that manipulating food, tossing a salad, etc with the Progressive tongs is a bit like doing it with a giant pair of tweezers. In contrast, the Edlund tongs feel like and extension of your hand and can be used to toss salads, flip burgers, or manipulate items in a sautee pan with confidence and without piercing the skin of delicate items. My advice - spend the extra money and buy the Edlund tongs - they last for many many years.

I needed a pair of tongs that wouldn't slip from wet or greasy hands. This product is great. Strong stainless steel with rubber inserts to help with the grip. I have a long pair too - that are perfect for working with outdoor grilling and smoking. These are the shorter ones and are just right for working with stove top cooking and serving. Oxo makes similar ones but I like these slightly better.

I was looking for some quality tongs that used the traditional design found in restaurant services all over the world, and these Progressive International Locking Tongs are the perfect choice!

I first purchased the 12" version to see how they worked and was so impressed with the quality and the feel, I ordered one in every other size they offer as well! The short 9" is great for serving salad, the 12" can be used both during cooking or as a serving tool and the 16" is perfect for Wok cooking under high heat or when frying on a stove top. Plenty long enough to keep your hands away from any grease/oil splatter, but still give you full sturdy control over your food! I like the 16" so much for this purpose that I have stopped using most of my traditional Wok tools and just use my trusty tongs instead!

The black plastic handle guards do a good job of keeping any radiant heat off my hands when using these on the grill. I even use the 16 inchers to move hot coals and smoking wood around in my Weber smoker! The locking system is great and I have no problem with the way it works. PULL OUT on the RING to lock and PUSH IN to UNLOCK. You can lock and unlock these one handed with your hands full using this simple but effective locking system.

These tongs are a MUST HAVE for any serious home chef!

I regret i had to deduct two stars from my rating because the manufacturer failed to use a stainless steel spring in the handles. This is the only part of the tongs that is rusting and for me that's a major quality flaw. And that's too bad because these would have been perfect otherwise. I will continue to use them of course but feel they would have lasted so much longer if only the manufacturer would have used a stainless steel spring. Functional but I can't recommend these with a clear conscious.

tongs have many uses in a busy kitchen. my old one broke at the hinge as the bolt keeping it together fell apart. i don't see much improvement in the design unfortunately but as long as it works, it does work well.

- 9 inch version is a solid size to give you good control. longer only necessary if you are bbq on a big grill.

- spring loaded is key for ease of use.

- the black circle thing in the back allows you to keep it closed when not in use. again an essential feature. light weight.

NOTE: this is exactly the same as the slightly pricier Oxo version (except the black circle has Oxo stamped on it) so don't bother with that.

Tongs work great, good quality. Lock is stainless, so it should last a while. Previous tongs had a plastic lock that wore out over a couple of years and don't lock anymore.

I've used the 12" and 16" tongs since 2011. From oven cooking to campfire cooking. I turn hot coals with them. I've plunged them into open fire. Then I use scotchbrite to clean and put them in the dishwasher. There is only one flaw, and that is the spring mechanism rusts too easy, but it doesn't affect the performance. Other than that, the tongs are solid, and I recommend them to others and would buy again.
