Customer questions about this product

Why are the dimensions in the title different from the actual dimensions in the description?
The dimensions given in the title represent an “industry standard” – a basic size that most manufacturers produce and that people in the industry use to easily identify a type of item. However, not all manufacturers produce their products the same way. For example, a title might say 12", but the item may actually be slightly larger or smaller. We include both measurements to help you find the product you’re looking for, and so you also know how large the product actually is.

    Nine inch brown utility tongs that are surprisingly good for the cost and the material. While it is a plastic tong, the price makes it worth the purchase.

    It is always important to use the best quality plastic serve ware if you do not plan on paying the extra for metal or stainless steel. These brown colored tongs are very strong and durable. They are made in the USA and can be washed in the dishwasher.
