As other have said these are very sturdy, made with a much thicker gage of stainless steel than usual. The should last a long, long time.
However, I wasn't happy with the shape of the tongs gripping surface. Too much of a 'vee' front to back and kinda flat at the back. If you try to pick up a burger or other meat from a grill, you'll puncture it with the tip before you get a good grip on it. (I don't know how Weber considers this shape to be optimal.)
As shipped, the tip is more of a 'pincer' than any other tong I've owned. Weber must think that it enhances grasping small objects like shrimp or asparagus, but I find the shape just plain wrong. The vee is so angled that only if you pick up something 5-6" across are the tips contacting all the way along the head. If you like to pick up burgers, steaks, and chicken by laying the tongs flat on the grill and pick thing up from the sides, these are your tongs. If you pick up things by sliding one tip under the food and gripping the top, these are simply the wrong shape.
After trying them, I went into my shop and put each tip over a 1 1/2" oak dowel for a mandrel and beat the tips into shape with a rubber mallet, patterning the shape after other tongs. I flattened the front to back angle to about 1/3 of the original and made each tip more concave as well so the back 'teeth' bite better. Now I can pick up a typical burger and steak with the tip contacting the whole length of the tong head, not just at the tip. Yet after modifying them, they still work good when 'side-gripping' as well, so I can't say I like Weber's design. At least they can be re-formed to ones own preference.
These tongs are very, very long. But they have an excellent open-and-close mechanism. They are a superior grill tool. It's so easy to use them a lot because my hand is not over the heat at all. The handle is also substantial and makes for good grasping.
I certainly recommend these tongs for any size grill.
However, these tongs are designed with an increased angle at the end of them which can make it really awkward when flipping or rotating food. I've used these tongs to cook burgers, brats, steaks, chicken and corn and each of them have been awkward to handle. After bending these tongs back to a normal angle, it helped but there must be a lot of better options available.

I received this pair of tongs in a three piece set, but the tongs are my most used component. The tongs are sturdy and grab well, but the spring rusted out and now they are a pain... Read morePublished 12 months ago by KP Texan
The Tongs are Sturdy and as other reviews stated the angle of the tips could be a little less. Only the tip seems to grab the food, however they're great for grabbing a stray piece... Read morePublished 12 months ago by Brujita
Heavy duty; gives you lots of control. I did bend them just a bit so they don't come to such a pointPublished 12 months ago by Dan O
I'd give it 5 stars for quality, but there are a couple of design issues:
1) The angle of the tips is too severe. This makes it difficult to grab ahold of some foods. Read more
Whoever wrote negative comments about these tongs did not receive these tongs. These are really, really good.Published on August 1, 2014 by The Red Elf
