Customer Reviews

BEST TONGS I have ever used! -- Great functional design; Extremely well-built & Durable; Fantastic performance & Minimal upkeep!These are the BEST tongs I have ever owned. I initially purchased the 12-inch size, but I liked it so much I then purchased the 9-inch and 16-inch size to complete the set. These are some of my favorite kitchen tools and so I highly recommend these tongs.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 DESIGNThe 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 & PERFORMANCEBeyond 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. The mechanism to lock these closed is oversized & easy to use (even with gloves/mitts on), strong as can be, and accessible (the hanging hole is convenient.) The spring is heavy duty and after years of almost daily usage it still shows no sign of fatigue. The hinge is also heavy-duty and has not developed excessive lateral play. In fact, despite heavy & frequent usage, my tongs still look and function like the day I bought them. OXO clearly spent a lot of time with the research & development because they made a product that is very functional and very durable.CLEANINGThese are low maintenance and do not need special cleaning care at all. I usually clean these in the dishwasher without removing the silicone inserts and they come out perfect every time. If there is a lot of caked-up food on them, I sometimes clean them with a metal polish called Bar Keeper's Friend (amazing stuff.) These tongs have held up like a champ to countless cleaning cycles & the use of cleaning chemicals/polishes.SIZES---WHICH SIZE???I initially purchased the 12-inch size and it is the size I use the most. With that said, I LOVE the 16-inch for when I am doing something in which more distance is desirable, such as if I am turning bacon as 16 inches puts a nice distance between my hand & the scalding-hot popping grease. And while the 9-inch is the size I use the least, it is still great to have when I am making something in a smaller pot as that reduced form factor makes it a little more nimble. So while I think all three sizes are very useful, if you are only going to purchase one size, I recommend the 12-inch.SO THIS IS AN INVESTMENT OF A QUALITY KITCHEN TOOL THAT WILL LASTSo if you are thinking, "hey, these cost more than many other tongs I have seen," I understand where you are coming from as I've been there myself. However, I highly recommend spending the few extra bucks on these OXO Good Grips as that small price premium gets you a product of exceptional quality: not only will these tongs last a very long time to offset the higher purchase price, but their good functional design makes using them more convenient (and therefore more enjoyable.) Convenience and enjoyment can encourage cooking more often, and when cooking more often one can save money over eating out, and arguably eat much healthier. So like other premium kitchen tools, I see these quality tongs as an investment.(PICTURE NOTE: The attached pictures show the 12-inch and 16-inch sizes, with various angles showing the different features & the sturdy build quality of these tongs.) 5Not As Good As The Original OXO Tongs.Quality went down from my first pair of OXO tongs. My first pair had a rubber pull-out lock. This pair has a cheap metal pull out that rusted after the first wash. The rest of the tongs are the same. My questions is: Why change something if it's already the best it can be? As Yogi Bera said, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." 3After replacing them...the OXO Good Grips Tongs still DO NOT LOCK!These tongs are supposed to lock...but they DO NOT. They were returned and the exact same item was shipped....Tongs that DO NOT LOCK. The tongs are shown as they look when closed...and they do not look like this at all. These are far too long to NOT have the option to lock them. The span, when open, takes up too much space in my utensil drawer and are unwieldy as they mingle with other small kitchen items in that drawer. I've had to close them with a coffee bag twist-tie in order to get them to remain relatively flat when stored! 1Great tongues, locking feature wears out over time.First I use these daily for years, love them, metal tips for hot items and open flames, cleans flawlessly in the dishwasher every time. My only complaint is the locking feature (A requirement for my drawer sizes) slowly wears out increasing the spread of the tongues, by year five the spread is the same locked or not even though you still have to close them to lock them. Hence buying new ones now. The old ones will stay outside next to the grill. Other than that, they look the and work the same since the day I first bought them 5 years ago. 4Poor general use Tongs(not a fan of the tong angle)I am not a fan of these tongs. I find that the tong angle is very limiting in what they may be used for. The tips touch leaving the rest of the tongs with a large amount of gap.I would only use these for grabbing large items or a single specific item(e.g. steak). The design is terrible for trying to serve pasta or salad. The fit and finish and material is all top notch. A redesign of the tongs to have most of the tong touch instead(parallel) would raise my review to 5 stars.I ended up finding a silicone tipped Tongs that I really like which are parallel and work great for serving. 2Don't care what ATK recommends, there are better tongs out there.Whereas these tongs look sturdy, they do not grip well. The tongs are designed to pinch by the tips, rather than grip. Delicate items are hard to pick up and larger items can become unsteady to hold, often sliding sideways. Unfortunately, these tongs cannot be returned, even though I purchased them a few days ago from Amazon. I've ordered another brand of tongs -- Pro tong isi. That is the brand I had previously. Sadly, they broke, so I thought I would try Oxo. My Oxo products are wonderful -- not these tongs, though. 1Love these...Not sure why I didn't get these a looooooong time ago. Grilling in the Arizona heat isn't always an enjoyable experience. However, these have made it so much better. They are long enough to get your hands away from the hot grill, but no loss of control. They are well built and seem like they will last a very long time. When I saw a buddy of mine suffering with some short inexpensive tongs while trying to cook at a family gathering a while back, I hopped on Amazon and had set delivered to him. He was extremely grateful and they now wonder why they hadn't picked up something like this a long time ago. Well worth it, and wouldn't hesitate to buy again. 5Feels loose and defectiveThe lock works and would come in handy for storage, but they still don't want to open with the lock released. There's no springiness to them at all, they'll stay in whatever position you put them in. I like when tongs close with pressure and open on their own when you release the pressure, I don't want to have to hook my fingers around in a weird position to push them back open or use two hands. They feel defective and will be returned. 2Simply the BestThis is my second set of 9" and 12" tongs from OXO and they're better than before! The metal is thicker so they've only gotten better with this generation! The only reason I replaced my previous set (bought 5 years ago from Bed Bath and Beyond) was because I lost one pair at a BBQ, and the other melted the rubber handle on a hot grill. (Don't use for grilling. Totally my fault though.) I couldn't be happier with the newest generation and the scalloped edge is so much better than any serrated edge tongs. 5After 10 years of use, these tongs still look and work like new.I was looking for longer tongs for smoking, and came across these that I had bought the 12 inch tongs 10 years ago. I noticed that I hadn't reviewed the tongs that I bought so long ago, and thought I would add my two-cents. I have a few set of tongs - some I like and some not so much. I also have the OXO Good Grips 12-Inch Locking Tongs with Nylon Heads that I use in pans that can be scratched by metal utensils. I also bought the tongs with the nylon heads 10 years ago. Both are still in excellent, like new condition, but I use them for different things. If I am just turning foods, I tend to use the stainless steel tongs. If I am also stirring and using a pan that can be scratched, I use the nylon head tongs. Both sets are easy to clean and don't have the areas that food can become embedded and difficult to get out. In comparing them, I think food is less likely to slip out of the tongs with the stainless ones. So, if I am taking a roast out of a pressure cooker, I would be more likely to use the stainless steel tongs. If I am stirring and turning food in a pan that can be scratched by metal, I use the tongs with the nylon heads. Both are excellent tools depending on your purposes. Since both have lasted 10 years, I think that's a pretty good testimonial. There just isn't much these days that lasts so long. 5
