These are the best tongs I've got, I use them for everything, I use them when I use my indoor grill, I use them when frying foods. These tongs can do anything and the best thing is they never slip so you aren't in the middle of frying something really hot and then the tongs quit working and slip so the food falls down and you're burnt now, these absolutely never do that, ever! The ends don't get hot either like most other tongs you have to do your job super quick so you won't get burnt from the heat travelling up but it just doesn't happen with these the rubber ends prevents that from happening. I love the locking handles they make storage of these tongs so simple, I hate trying to get other tongs to fit into my utensil drawer, I had to rearrange it every time just to get them to fit properly, but not with these they stay locked firmly in place. The spring in these is perfect, it allows you to easily grip things without having to hold very tightly and possibly ruining the food. Ease of Cleaning Very easy to clean, you can just stick these right into the dishwasher and let it do it's job really simple nothing to it. Durability These tongs are super durable, they can do so much. They will take on any job, and stay in perfect working order every time. Design Great design I love how they have rubber grips on the end for ease of handling, and to prevent heat getting to your hands. Also, the locking mechanism is great and so convenient!
