Rated 3 out of 5 by Anaviv from Fun Tool To Have I bought this item because I needed tongs for my non stick items. I even thought I could use them to fry bacon. It was difficult Fun to have safe for non-stick pan but not a lot of strength to pick up items. Good for salads.Date published: 2016-04-20Rated 5 out of 5 by LEpicure from Very handy tools for cooking! Bought this for my non-stick pans. Very easy to use, Light weighted beautiful tongs! I think that I'm gonna throw away my silicon tongs.Date published: 2013-10-21Rated 4 out of 5 by Guardiana from Nice, but pricey! I used them a couple of times. Happy with the results. Not sure the line is worth 10 times more than the bamboo made equivalents, but I have not seen similar item made out of bamboo.Date published: 2013-09-15Rated 4 out of 5 by ItalianCoffeeLover from Awesome pair of tongs, but handle with care I have several pairs of tongs, but these are the ones I use the most. Roast vegetables, steamed vegetables, turning bacon or halloumi and even scrambling eggs when I was feeling lazy and didn't want to grab a spatula. Despite my love of these tongs, the reason they get 4 stars (and I'd give them 4.5 stars if I could) is durability. I had these tongs for nearly 2 yrs before they were broken recently. A friend grabbed them quite close to the hinge and broke one of the tongs. Even before this incident I noticed there was a fair bit of tension the further back you grab them, so I was always semi-conscious about how/where I held them. Despite this I will be buying another pair to replace them as they're so useful.Date published: 2013-07-21Rated 5 out of 5 by Autumn923 from An unexpected favorite in the kitchen I originally bought this so I can get take advantage of the free shipping deal. I already own the Littledeer pan paddle, which I absolutely love. I needed some tongs anyway so I gave this a go. The craftmanship and quality of Littledeer is obvious as soon as you hold one in your hand. I find myself using this more than expected for flipping, grabbing, stirring, transferring. Plus, I love that it is wood so I don't have to worry about scratching my pans and pots. I just give it a good rinse as soon as I am done using it. It is definitely worth it for the price.Date published: 2013-02-22
