We use tongs for everything so sometimes 3 is just not enough. When I saw these for review I was so excited. Then it came with a Spatula as well, that made it even better! My mother in-law got us a set of tongs for Christmas one year and they lock close which is awesome. BUT you have to turn them upside down, or is it straight up in the air? You see the problem? I never remember so they are not the easiest things to use.
When I saw these tongs I thought they would be flimsy because they are thin then i took them out of the package and one was open one was closed. I couldn't get the closed one open. So of course I'm thinking it's broken but guess what, these lock too. They both have a button at the top that locks them so they are not wide open taking up more space than needed in the utensil drawer. Even better, the button makes it easy to hang so they right there when I need them.
Like I mentioned the tongs are very light but they are also very sturdy. They work very well with no bending. The rubber tips are a great plus because I can use them in all of my coated pans and not scratch them. The coatings is not very thick but just enough to protect my pots and pans.
I'm very glad I added this set to my kitchen utensil collection! If you want to add them to yours you can use this link.
