    I love these tongs! These are the best, most durable tongs you'll find anywhere. I've purchased multiples to give as gifts, along with measuring cups & spoons, and whisks. Such high quality and great for the grill.
    These heavy duty tongs are better than the regular grade, but there's still a lot of play at the tip. The rivet in the hinge doesn't hold tight enough and it's possible to close these and have the tips barely even touching.
    Thank you for your feedback! We’re sorry you did not prefer this product. For recommendations, please contact our Customer Solutions team.
    perfect tong, is super strong and very comfortable since the photo looks like bad material but it has its fantastic stainless steel, I would recommend it to all
    Great large tongs good for grilling or other cooking projects. These are durable and you will appreciate the good quality. Thank you for another great product!
    It is nice to have a longer handled tong so you can reach into deep pots without burning your hand. Well made and able to withstand the abuse of everyday use.
    Heavy duty tongs at a great price! Made of good quality metal, and the perfect length for reaching into pans. The hinge is solidly constructed and moves freely and smoothly.
    This tong is a good length for grill work. Keeps your hands a little farther away from the grill. This does not bend and dent as easily as the lighter weight ones.
    These tongs are built to last. Easy to clean and durable. Great to serve or set u as a self serve for events. The length makes it very easy when dealing with full sized pans
    16 inches is the perfect length for a commercial grill, the heavy-duty stainless steel has stood up to the daily demands of a catering or restaurant operation.
    These are sturdy and very long, which makes them very convenient for taking things out of hot water or oil without problems. They have a heavy duty bent rectangle of wire to keep them closed when needed, which I was puzzled by at first but understood later. There is also a notch at the top to keep that selfsame wire from getting in your way when trying to use them.
    Great tongs at a great price! Made of good quality metal, they aren't flimsy at all. The hinge is solidly constructed and moves freely and smoothly.
    Heavy duty for sure. Ours holding up very well and washed well. Great value for the price. We owned many sizes and multiple of each size, never had any problem. We use this size specifically for BBQ, despite the length, it has good grip.
    Long reach Excellent quality, very well made. All stainless steel great for times when you have to reach something deep in pots or the oven.
    These are great tongs to cook outside on the bbq grill. they are long handled and its very easy to take food off the grill without burning your elbows.
    These are a great heavy duty utility tong. However, I only gave it 4 stars because it does not have a notch at the top to keep the metal clasp back for when you are using it. Otherwise it's a good time for the price.
    The 16 inch Heavy Duty tongs are fantastic. They are long enough to keep the hot grill at a distance but offer enough control to easily transfer foods They are strong enough to hold a full size sheet pan with cooked or raw product on it, making easy transferring of pan during prep and service.
    These are inexpensive because they are cheap tongs. Of the so-called "heavy duty" tongs are anything but heavy duty. The springs break easily. We could get only a few weeks use before having to replace. They are basically "throw away" items We switched to the more expensive l Volrath Jacob's Pride stainless steel scalloped tongs, and have not had to replace any of them, since purchase. And our staff like them much better.
    We appreciate your review, Michael! We are sorry you did not like these utility tongs. If you are ever looking for a recommendation on a different product, please contact our Customer Solutions team.
    Very well made had them for years and still using them. The handles are heavy and long , works great for the fryers. Would buy again.
    I've used these for years. I ordered several pair a month or so ago and all but one has broken at the hinge. The rivet holding the two together just broke without any force. Must have been a bad batch. Have re -ordered some more and will see. Not sure if they changed manufacturing or not.
    We appreciate your review, Brian! We are sorry these tongs broke on you, a Customer Solutions Representative will be contacting you shortly.
    We have multiple of these tongs. We use them for every application in our BBQ business. They can handle being over hot grills and have held up in commercial dishwashers.
