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.

    Great all around tongs for events. Perfect because they are plastic so if they get misplaced it's not a huge deal. Perfect for parties and other catering style events.

    The 12" tongs are great for the self serve salad bar. We use them in the salad mixture and on the hot bar for picking up breadsticks and rolls. They can go in the dishwasher, too.

    I really like these tongs, they are durable and very nice. I really like the weight of them. I wish I would have bought more.

    High quality product that lasts through many washing and the occasional fall on the floor. Tongs are great for buffets and salad bars. Long reach helps keep people's hands further away from product, which is nice for food safety.

    These plastic black tongs are good for serving composed cold salads with large chunks! Great long tongs for fried chicken on a buffet as well!!!

    These are great. It is now nice to have our customers use them instead of regular tongs that can slip our of your hands and spill all over. Should have gotten them sooner. You are a great company to work with.
