    tongs plating great quality smaller Culinary gloves more place tool

    The Mercer Culinary 9 3/8" Straight Precision/ Plating Tongs is a must have item for culinary students and gourmet chefs. There isn't much to say about tongs but they do offer great quality that is hard to come by.

    We use these on the line when a "finer" plating is needed or to grab/plate smaller more delicate items. These have almost replaced tongs in out kitchen for the hot line.

    A must have tool for any chef with focus for detail. Not just extending your finger tips but also give them a possibility to perform more detail work Great quality.

    from Tom Posted on

    Really like these because of the functionality. I used them to replace the use of gloves when plating dishes. I was using gloves to place basil on our margherita pizza, but this is so much nicer and time saving then having to put on gloves.

    I love using these to get things on and off my decorated cakes. It makes the days of careful picking up with my fingers a thing of the past. I recommend having some of these.

    The Mercer M35130 9 3/8" Straight Precision / Plating Tongs is a nice quality of stainless steel and a great polish look to it. It is very durable. Great price.

    from T & C Catering Services Posted on

    These tongs were purchased to place delicate desserts on trays. I now use them for baked goods and lighter weight items. It is nice to have a variety of tongs for different purposes. One size does not fit all.

    from SOD Posted on

    These plating tongs are great. A touch smaller than some of the other kinds you might find, but working with them is good and they are small at the tips and can be precise.

    from Piccolo Restaurant Posted on

    This is another resourceful tool that I have used in culinary school when finishing off dishes during plating. Tongs allow you to place ingredients in a precise location on the plate without having to use your hands. Another tool that I would highly recommend.
