    This 16" Stainless steel utility tong is a good size for reaching into a hot boiling pot. I use this size tong whenever I'm serving hot meat from different broth and sauces. You can't go wrong with purchasing any types of equipment from the WebstaurantStore. I have other restaurants suppliers but I like the quality and the speedy shipping and receiving my orders fast from the WebstaurantStore.

    My favorite part about these tongs is that they have a notch at the back to keep them from closing up in the middle of being used.

    NIce length!

    These 16 inch stainless steel utility tongs are excellent for flipping meats and other vegetables on the grill. These are lightweight, easy to use, and feature a locking mechanism to keep them closed and compact when not in use. This is a very well priced product for the quality.

    Great for grilling.

    I was tempted to give 3 stars, because the tongs are made of quite thin metal and rather flimsy. But then I remembered that they are <$2 16" tongs that work just fine for flipping some meat or vegetables over a grill or flipping something in a fryer, while letting you keep a healthy distance from that which will burn you. They may not be the highest quality, but they are practically free and do their intended job just fine.

    Nice to have for BBQing or frying. However, these tongs were pretty flimsy. I doubt they would hold up well to heavy use, keep in mind what you plan to use these for. May be wise to get the more expensive, better quality tongs.

    for most purposes, these utility tongs are perfectly fine and work just as well as the more heavy duty version. i use them for grilling and other tasks and they work great without need for the more expensive model

    You can expect to tackle a number of task with these 16 inch tongs. While the are cheap in price but are top of the line quality when it comes to manufacturing. They get the job done and will hold up well for years to come.

    I use these for bbqing cause they are long and you do not have to get too close to the heat. They are easy to control from your hand up too near the hinge.

    I find these tongs hard to manipulate because they are so long. I wanted the length for the grill, but I don't really like them that much. They feel super cheaply made, and they are hard to close.

    These longer tongs work well for prep in our kitchen. They provide the length for deeper containers to serve items. We also use these tongs on our grill for flipping bacon.

    from Marie and Twannette's Bakery and Cafe Posted on

    perfect for reaching in and out of the oven to get hot pieces of food and they do lock in place which makes storing them easy.

    Perfect tongs for grilling! The nice long length helps keep hands cool and far away from the heat. These feel nice and sturdy in hand.

    I love this 16" Stainless Steel Utility Tong. You can use it on buffets, salad bars, or even to flip your vegetables on the grill...it's very long which is good to keep you safe from burning or to stop people from touching your food products. I highly recommend it.

    16" Stainless Steel Utility Tong

    Solid set of utility tongs with this product. Nice long reach but great construction so there is no bending even when lifting he heaviest of foods.

    Posted on

    Tongs are good but not great, the spring in them is not long enough and they feel a little loose. Fulfills its purpose but i wish they were stronger.

    16 inch stainless steel utility tongs does the job! And the price is excellent! We recommend and would purchase again. Anything fancy about this product! 4 stars !

    Needed a few more tongs in the house. These are a really good size. The construction is nice and I would definitely suggest adding these to your kitchen.

    Perfect for using for stir fry. A great choice for any caterers that will have buffet items that can otherwise cause a mess. Perfect utility tongs.

    The 16 ounce stainless steel tongues are kind of nice they're a little cheesy but at a fantastic price will do just fine for when I need them for

    from N/A Posted on

    Simple and useful. We got a second set of tongs (rubber) to use with our toaster, but we use these to pick up and move hot items

    from Rise Bakery Posted on

    I use these stainless steel tongs on a daily basis for many different things. They are sturdy and well made. I would recommend this product.

    16" Stainless Steel Utility Tong I've used these utility tongs most of my catering life we have more of these than pot spoons I kid you not

    from PowerQuee Media Posted on

    I specifically chose these tongs for frequent casual meals we cater for a local group. (They have a tendency to drop tongs into the chafing pans.) These are long enough to prevent buffet goers from dropping them into the food pans. Plus they have stood up to frequent use over the last month. The only drawback is the extra length combined with a lack of clamping ring requires rubberbanding in order to fit into the utensil box for transport. Great product for the price!

    from Bread Garden Market Posted on

    Very good cheap set of tongs. If your looking for a no frills cheap utility tong for the kitchen this is it. They are not heavy duty so they heat up fairly quickly.

    Posted on

    These tongs are great I have them in several of the diffrent sizes. We mostly use them for grilling. The clean up in a snap just toss them in the dishwasher. Ordering more of these so nice to have on hand

    Posted on

    We go through tongs like you wouldn't imagine. And these tongs hold up to the usage we put them through very well. I would definitely recommend this product, especially at this price point.

    Posted on

    These tongs are the perfect size for flipping chicken and steaks on the grill. They are also very easily cleaned and have a nice grip on them.

    Used the 16" Stainless Steel Spring Tong to pick up a cinnamon scone. The tongs were a great extension of my arm. The scone even though crumbly was able to be picked up with the tongs without causing further crumbling. Great purchase.

    from jwhitten31 Youtube name Posted on

    Cheap tongs. Nice and long to reach into pans, but the quality is lacking. I recommend the heavy duty versions offered by vollrath or others.

    from Mike's Mindful Plate Posted on

    This product is not meant for commercial use. It is flimsy and broke almost immediately. Spend the extra few bucks and get something that will last longer than a week.

    Thank you for the review, Daniel. We're sorry these did not suit you! We suggest trying these 16" Utility Tongs for a heavier option.

    from Lukitos tacos Posted on

    This is the best I could find for the money. Good stainless steel construction, rust proof and easy to clean. We use them every day, and will add to my rebuy list.

    This is our go to tong in our place. We own a few of them and always seem to need to use them for something. Hang them up in easy to find places.

    This tong is just what I was looking for!! Not too long and not too short. I needed something for both grilling and in the kitchen and this fit the bill. Spring loaded to get you in business every time.

    from WannaBeChef Posted on

    Nice long tongs that are great for turning something at the back of the oven or reaching into a deep pot. They get the job done, and look very nice, especially for the price. My only complaint is that they make your hand tired if you have tiny hands and have to use them for a long time. They are good all purpose tongs.

    Nice lonnnggg tongs. Ok, so at this price I'm not expecting these to last me a lifetime but............I ordered the very large Cambro 40 qt bowl for lettuce on a buffet. And that bowl is sooo big that you have to have long tongs. This fit perfectly. A great size when you need that extra length in tongs. Used at a wedding rehearsal dinner and I was pleased with the look, not cheap.

    Works well for our deep fryer. Just the right size for use with frying chicken. Well made. We will order more as needed. Priced right

    from B& B Corner Stop Posted on

    I like these tongs as they do NOT have the little metal wire thing that slides up and down. They always get in my way. These are not magnetic if you want to hang them that way.

    from Gilpin Market Posted on

    These are OK. They work great as an inexpensive catering utensil in case you don't get them back but they probably aren't heavy enough to hold up to continuous use.

    Posted on

    Very long set of tongs, great for grilling and keeping my hands out of the fire. Also have been using this to pick food out of the fryer without getting spattered by oil.

    Posted on

    Suitable for small parties or light weight food. Not heavy duty or for heavy food lifting. Doesn't come with lock or clasp so was a bit annoying for food service.

    from Le Spicy Mango Posted on

    The 16" Stainless Sreel Tong. Are a great item to have around the kitchen to help prevent burns ,They are long enough to reach deep in the stock pots to pull our lobsters.Saftey first.Price is right.

    from Harrison Familey Restaurant Posted on

    These tongs are long enough to reach to the back of my grill. Now I do not need to worry about flare ups and getting burned. These keep my hands safley out of the way.

    These were purchased as gift toppers for grill-loving friends. The length of the tongs ensures lots of grill time without having to get too close!
