I love these tongs! These are the best, most durable tongs you'll find anywhere. I've purchased multiples to give as gifts, along with measuring cups & spoons, and whisks. Such high quality and great for the grill.

Great abs heavy duty tings. Very long abs are great for grilling and preparing steaks and anything else that requires reach. Highly recommended to any chef

Great price versus other tongs of the same length that I found. Plus these are thin enough for our application. They can fit between the heating elements of our fryers and get hard to reach grime.

We have so many of these. They are heavy duty. We use them while grilling and they can withstand heat with no problem at all.

Excellent product. The 16 inch length is great for use with hot grills or griddles. They're very comfortable to grip and to handle. The resistance that the hinge spring gives is just right, and there's a discreet clamp to keep tongs closed when not in use. Easy to wash, lightweight but sturdy. These are my go-to tongs and I highly recommend them.

You can’t go wrong with a set of these tongs. The long pair makes it very nice to reach in to the tall pots to pick up those items. Buy in quantity

These tongs are heavy duty and reliable and I use them when making fried oreos as they are long enough for my to avoid getting burned. Also use them on my flat iron griddle when cooking for my customers.

These are very sturdy and seem to be well built for the price you pay for them. The metal piece that keeps them held shut came off within the first few days but it gets in the way usually anyways. Good set of tongs.

They are very strong, you can grab anything hit without worrying about burning yourself because they are a good length. Would be ideal for barbecues.

The 16 inch Heavy Duty tongs are fantastic. They are long enough to keep the hot grill at a distance but offer enough control to easily transfer foods They are strong enough to hold a full size sheet pan with cooked or raw product on it, making easy transferring of pan during prep and service.

I was always a fan of these sixteen inch heavy duty utility stainless steel tongs, and my most recent order was no different. I love that they can be left in a pan or on the grill while cooking and not worry about melting plastic. They are easy to use and really do pickup heavy objects well. I would recommend to anyone using the plastic versions as they are a safer, healthier alternative.

long tong, great for working with the fryer where you don't want to get burn, with this long tong you can reach the bottom easily

from Osaka Japanese Hibachi on

This 16 inch tong is especially useful when you're working with a bbq or flattop grill. Its length allows you to reach to the back of the grill while offering you some distance from the heat. Heavy duty, easy to lock and unlock with one hand. Great tong!

on

Now these tongs usually will break at the end with overtime usage, so I would definitely buy a whole box or 2 just in case .

Excellent quality and size, for the price. Hasn't rusted up going in the dishwasher or corroded with handling food coated in acidic sauces, etc. Very useful to have around.

on

These are very nice tongs. They have a nice length so you can work over a hot grill and keep hands away from hot spots and flames. They also have enough grip that I was able to grill asparagus with ease. They feel great in the hand and are sturdy enough I feel they will last a long time.

on

These tongs are nice and heavy duty. The length is great for keeping away from the heat of the skillet. I would definitely recommend these tongs for anyone thinking about them.

on

Only problem is the food gets stuck in the handle - good price / pretty sturdy / seems to hold up nicely under pressure of daily use

on

Great tongs to use when flipping meats on the grill. Long enough that you can stay far enough away from the flames. heavy duty and easy to use

from Hanaro Sushi on

These thongs are so easy to use and clean . They are sturdy and comfortable to hold. Don’t get hit near hot things and overall the best. Highly recommend to all of you!

from WOODLAND SEWING AND VACUUM CT on

Love it! Very durable & great quality. Extremely satisfied with my purchase. We have use the tongs several times, the kids even enjoy using them.

from Fab Boutique on

I love these tongs, I use them for everything! From barbecuing to deep frying, their length and heavy construction allows me to do anything. Perfect for any cook out there.

on

The tongs were great initially but the spring failed after some light use. The length is also impractical for most applications. Make sure you know what you are buying beforehand.

from Mori on

Heavy duty and well made! Good spring action and even though it opens wider than others it has the clamp to slide down to close tongs when not in use which is nice. Really made grilling fun!

from Andelin Family Farm on

I use these tongs for barbecuing and love them. The long handle is great for keeping hands out of the heat while still being able to reach food.

on

Pretty good set of tongs, nice and long for reaching in the fryer if you need to. I wish there was a ring to keep them closed though.

on

These are great tongs, at 16 inches they are large and I use them for grilling. They are very durable, easy to clean, and I love to use them. A fantastic buy at a fantastic price!

on

Extra long for BBQ/ Grill and good grab for holding 16oz steaks, Great price and well made. Don’t let cheap tongs drop your food buy it!

on

I decided to buy these tongs because they are extra long I like using these on the grill that way I don’t feel the heat on my hands when cooking food on the grill

The steel Utility tongs are great, very well built and price right. We use them in our industrial kitchen and have no complains so far. We recommend it

from Ivan Munoz on

This tong is excellent. Easy to use and really durable. Excellent for grilling and barbecue. The length is great and it is easy to clean. Good product and will order more for my kitchen.

on

Very cheaply made, most broke within a few days/ sharp edges and the pin that holds them together breaks. Dangerous for food service. Will not be reordering these again.

Long tongs are so good for grilling or extended use over a hot range. Saves a lot of singed arm hairs! These aren't quite as durable as more expensive models, but for the price they are fantastic.

on

These heavy duty tongs are better than the regular grade, but there's still a lot of play at the tip. The rivet in the hinge doesn't hold tight enough and it's possible to close these and have the tips barely even touching.

This tong is a good length for grill work. Keeps your hands a little farther away from the grill. This does not bend and dent as easily as the lighter weight ones.

from Cupell's Catering on

These are sturdy and very long, which makes them very convenient for taking things out of hot water or oil without problems. They have a heavy duty bent rectangle of wire to keep them closed when needed, which I was puzzled by at first but understood later. There is also a notch at the top to keep that selfsame wire from getting in your way when trying to use them.

on

These are a great heavy duty utility tong. However, I only gave it 4 stars because it does not have a notch at the top to keep the metal clasp back for when you are using it. Otherwise it's a good time for the price.

on

These are inexpensive because they are cheap tongs. Of the so-called "heavy duty" tongs are anything but heavy duty. The springs break easily. We could get only a few weeks use before having to replace. They are basically "throw away" items We switched to the more expensive l Volrath Jacob's Pride stainless steel scalloped tongs, and have not had to replace any of them, since purchase. And our staff like them much better.

I've used these for years. I ordered several pair a month or so ago and all but one has broken at the hinge. The rivet holding the two together just broke without any force. Must have been a bad batch. Have re -ordered some more and will see. Not sure if they changed manufacturing or not.

16 inch HEAVY DUTY stainless steel utility tongs does the job! And the price is excellent! We recommend and would purchase again. Strong and sturdy ! 4 stars !

from Queens pizzaria on

If you have a BBQ you need these! These are monster duty tongs. Very strong and very thick gauge steel. Perfect for moving large racks of ribs and brisket around on the grill.

on

These tongs are really sturdy and perfect for using on the grill. They are definitely a little too long to be practical in the kitchen.

on

These are as stated, heavy duty. I have many cheap metal tongs, aluminum I believe. I can feel a difference between them and this pair (which is still cheap/affordable). This pair feels like it will last much longer, just a little thicker metal. The spring resistance feels just right. These are easy to use and durable. As my cheaper ones give out, plan on replacing them with these stainless steel products.

on

this is the 16 inch I have gotten a few different lengths I love how they don't have the empty gap that pinch's finger like other tongs I've gotten

from home on

The tongs work well with the fryer and the food products that we had. The tongs was beneficial to pick up food products from the fryer.

from JBW VENDING, LLC on

16" Heavy Duty Stainless Steel Utility Tong I have lots of these and my brother the bbq or put master only uses HD tongs in his grill

from PowerQuee Media on

This tong, like the name says, is nice and heavy in the hand and easy to handle. The length is great to keep away for a hot flaming grill!! My only problem is that somehow a staff member managed to break the metal spring strip. Thankfully, I can order a replacement!!

from Khaan Deli LLC on

Great price, very high quality tongs, I use them mainly while frying or removing pre-packaged spinach from boiling water so as not to get burned. I would buy again.

on

These tongs are great for my bbq. They're long enough to keep my distance from an open flame but they still have the strength to pick up almost anything I want. They're stronger than others yet not difficult to squeeze.

on

The tongs are awesome. Durable and they hold us to high temps. We use for all of the grabbing over hot areas like the grill or boiling pots.

from Charleston Sports Pub on

These extra long tongs are very sturdy and well-built. The heavy stainless steel makes for very easy clean up. Excellent reach on larger grill surfaces to keep hands from getting burned.

from SOMSA on

I love these tongs, strong, sturdy and you can pick up food really precisely because it has a great grip. Unlike some other tongs I bought, the tips come together very precisely to make it really easy to use. Cleaning is a cinch because I throw them in the dishwasher. Some people take off the clip that can hold it shut, but I leave them on. I have several pairs of these tongs.

on

These tongs are very long & sturdy. They are long enough to reach for far away items. I am going to buy some more later.

from Tashpat LLC on

These tongs are a very good value. The extra long reach helps to reach the back of the grill or into a frying pan without being burned.

on

These tongs work great when using in a high heat source environment. They are long enough to reach into the depth of the oven or stay at a far away distance when used in a fryer. The tongs lock when needed to be stored. The only gripe for me is that food particles tend to get lodged in the small gap along the arms but yet are easy to flush and clean them out.

on

love these tongs. they are very strong and sturdy and you cant beat the price. the length is perfect for what we use them for.

from river rock on

Used the 16" Heavy Duty Utility Tong to pick up a double chocolate cookie. The tong is so long it is awesome. You can easily stretch without having to extend your arm very much. Like the size.

from jwhitten31 Youtube name on

stellar product nice n long, great strength and solid. now my hands dont get burned with short tongs and these have a heavy feel to them, nice item....

on

We used these tongs over the weekend with the grill and they are excellent. Very sturdy. Easily moved around a heavy brisket with no problems.

on

No more burning hair! This is great for grilling because the long tongs give you a little more room from burning all the hair off your arms.

on

The 18" Utility Heavy Duty Tongs are great for Cooking over hot surfaces and grabbing items that are in deep containers. They are sturdy and items are easy to pick up, the ridges on the tips of the tongs help grip the item better. We use these all day long!

on

Wonderful tongs. These things are exactly what you need for working over any kind of hot grilling surface or for any sort of basic service requirements. They are really well made.

on

I've accumulated a mass of tongs for all different purposes. These ones are my go-to tongs for bbq and cooking on, around and in the camp fire. They're definitely heavy duty enough to handle throwing around some big chunks of meat but they aren't heavy or the springs too tight to be hard to use. Can't recommend these enough!

on

I purchase 1 for my home. And I can definitely say I will purchase this to replace all my other ones at my restaurant. Thank you.

from Todd's Kitchen on

You can find tongs anywhere but they always seem to break and they become dull after a while. These tongs are durable and they have yet to break on me

on

Purchased this item about a month ago. Weight and feel and quality is very good. I will purchase this item again when the time comes.

from Sauder's Landing on

These tongs are perfect. They're able to reach to the bottom of my largest stock pot without endangering my hands. Sturdy, well made, easy to clean and the clip that you slide up to keep it closed while storing is very convenient.

on

I use these on my smoker and the fact they are 16" makes it so you never have to worry about burning yourself. They also work great indoors. Excellent product!

on

Great Tongs! 16 inch tongs are perfect for reaching into the back of my smoker and pulling out a full rack of ribs. These are inexpensive and appear durable. A good value!

from Brian on

Great tongs. Well built, nice and long, great for cooking over high heat where you want to keep the hands away from the heat source. Too long for home cooks.

from Mike's Mindful Plate on

We bought these tongs for serving in our food truck. We were very surprised at the high quality of the tongs. They are great for serving and preparing food.

from The Sweet Shop on

These long tongs work great for reaching into hot oil from fryers. Don't think I could've gotten a better deal anywhere else. Will come back to buy more when needed

from The Pump on

I love these tongs! They are the perfect length to reach to the back of the grill without worrying about getting burned from flare ups.

on

these are your standard tongs, good heavy duty quality, and they have a closer for easy storage which is a plus, will definitely order more for price

on

Was looking for tongs that have good strength and spring. These are good tongs excellent for the kitchen and heavy use, great product , thanks

on

Such an amazing value item. The expensive silicone versions are a waste of money, just get these with the longer handles. Love em and eve get em for friends.

on

Good length for making tempura and for salamander grill. I can myself far away from the heat. Cooking all the hot staff are very easy with this tong.

from RAWR Sushi, LLC on

I have to admit... I was concerned with buying these over a website. While most may think Tongs are Tongs... they never got their palm or finger pinched in a pair. Reluctant to order them without trying them out... I dove in and ordered a couple. WOW!! These tongs are awesome. Not only are they well built... and have a nice and heavy duty feel to them.. but they dont pinch! I ordered them in all sizes and Im glad I went with these. Great quality.

from Beanie's Dog House - Best Hot Dogs In NYC on

Strong and durable, these heavy duty tongs are well worth their price, which just so happens to be amazing. They are reliable and the extra bit of reach of nice.

from Rochester Institute of Technology on

Heavy duty is right, these are great tongs. The length makes them great for not only kitchen use but also for grilling outside. Great price for great quality!

on

Tongs. So many to choose from, but which is right? We go through tongs like we go through bacon! Our tongs get absolutely abused, so it was important that we purchased the correct tongs this time around. We were not looking to buy the cheapest tongs out there, but price was still a factor. After reading some of the reviews, and searching the web, we decided that these were the way to go. They were longer than what we had been using, but I felt that they would be a better choice. When the arrived we were instantly happy with the quality feel. They were heavier and more solid than what we had become accustomed to using. After a couple weeks of use, these are still standing up great to the beating they receive. They get used in everything from delicate salad to scorching oil in our fryer. When it comes time to order more tongs to replace our cheap 6" ones, these are the ones we will be buying.

from Miamogue Yacht Club on

These are wonderful tongs, so heavy-duty and easy to use. The 16" size is the perfect length for grilling. No more singed hands! We are so happy with these tongs, that I am buying a couple more in other sizes.

on

These are great tongs and last a long time. They stand up well against the abuse of restaurant operations. The long size is handy for shorter staff to reach across counters.

from Barbecue Blast Inc. on

We have a high demand for these heavy duty tongs. They are perfect for bar-b-q ing and any other work on a hot grill. The tongs have a slide that allows you to grip the food and lock it in place. At this price, we suggest you purchase a set to handle different sizes and weights of food. Use with gloves.

from Webb Implement & Supply on
