Nice set of BBQ tongs, they are exactly as advertised. Well packaged and arrived on time. The tongs have rubber pieces on the sides to give a better grip when using that can be removed for easy washing. The bottle opener on the side is convenient, and so is the metal loop on the top so you can hang them. I initially had trouble seeing how to lock them together for easy storage as they are different from my old set of tongs. For anyone who’s wondering, just hold the tongs in closed position and grab the loop on the top, then either pull it straight up, or push it down into the tongs depending on what position you want them to hold. This lock is better than others I’ve seen, as it stays in place and won’t move around locking and unlocking at random. These are also very light weight. Another quality item from oxo. Highly recommend
Solid, opens wide for picking up bigger BBQ items like ribs, no complaints. The built in bottle opener comes in surprisingly handy
I have purchased and returned many inferior tongs that just weren’t up to the task. These tongs are almost identical to a pair that I purchased 10years ago and wore out. I BBQ and smoke meats extensively and as such, I use tongs almost every day. Rubber handle fits well and spring is heavy duty and there is an overall sturdy feel to these tongs. The are definitely of high quality and up to the task. Buy them, you won’t be disappointed!
When I did stew ramen the other day, it was
hard to grasp with chopsticks, but this tong was perfect to hold on to a plate.
Wish was available in silicone. Great product. Not my type though.
