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.

    These are really good salad tongs. They are sturdy and grip well without crushing the salad. they work great for serving salad or other foods from a large serving bowl or platter.
    Use these tongs mainly for finger food like chicken wings and eggrolls. Perfect size and length. I have used it for special occasions like Thanksgiving and Christmas gatherings.
    The Carly 12" tongs are a very versatile tool. We use them from picking pickles out of the prep table or dishing up chips on a tray.
    Always be sure you choose the highest quality plastic tong for your buffet, cafe, or even house party. These tongs are inexpensive yet feature an extra strong plastic construction. They can be washed in the dishwasher. The black color will work for almost every occasion.
    The Carlisle Carly 12" Black Plastic Utility Tongs are strong and durable. They are easy to grip and made to last. They are great for buffets, caters and home use.
    Durable, just like the other carlisle products we have bought before. We use the 12in to get some of our warmer/hotter items on our hot bar and they are holding up great!
    I'm really happy with these these are great 12 inch long black plastic utility tongs I really like using these catering jobs and events for the summertime there been strong and hold up
    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.
