    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.

    Very well made had them for years and still using them. The handles are heavy and long , works great for the fryers. Would buy again.

    from Vera's Snack Shack Posted on

    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.

    We have multiple of these tongs. We use them for every application in our BBQ business. They can handle being over hot grills and have held up in commercial dishwashers.

    from Tame The Flame BBQ Posted on

    We love these tongs and the longer handle is nice so the tongs don't fall down into the food. Great price as well, we will be purchasing more again soon!

    With its 16" length this Utility Tong is perfect for BBQ masters. This helps to avoid that grill smoke burning your eyes while flipping meat with long length range

    This product has & is the best ones I've owned my whole life. Great quality meets my expectations by far. I took a chance and bought two of them and I'm glad I did.

    Nice long handles for grilling so your hands stay away from the heat. They seem pretty heavy duty just like the description states. Love these tongs.

    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.

    The 16 inch tongs are perfect for flipping items while in the oven...long reach to avoid the heat

    I really like how these 16 inch long heavy duty stainless steel utility tongs are made I like how the metal wraps all the way around on the inside so you don't pinch your fingers they're nice

    This 16" Heavy Duty Stainless Steel Utility Tong is a must have. I love the fact that it's 16" long, which is great and it's a perfect tool to serve your salads, veggies and even mini desserts and appetizers. I will buy again.

    16" Heavy Duty Stainless Steel Utility Tong

    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 Posted on

    16" heavy stainless steel tong

    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!

    Posted on

    16 inch tongs work great on a grill because you can reach far in the back without getting your hands too close. For me, they're a bit too large for standard kitchen use. I primarily use these tongs in the 12 inch length.

    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 Posted 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.

    Posted 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.

    Posted 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.

    Posted 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 Posted 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.

    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 Posted 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 Posted 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.

    Posted 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.

    Posted on

    Great for the bbq!

    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 Posted 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 Posted 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.

    Posted 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 Posted 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.

    Posted 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.

    Posted 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 Posted 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 Posted 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....

    Posted 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.

    Posted 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.

    Posted 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!

    Posted 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.

    Posted 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!

    Posted 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 Posted 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

    Posted 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 Posted 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.

    Posted 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!

    Posted 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 Posted 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 Posted 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 Posted 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 Posted 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.

    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

    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.

    Posted 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 Posted 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 Posted 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 Posted 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!

    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 Posted 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.

    Great value tongs. At 16" long you can use it on the bbq and not be afraid to burn yourself, they feel very solid there is a little clip on the top to keep the tongs closed when you want to put it away

    This 16" Heavy Duty Utility Tong is a must have in a restaurant. It is strong and durable and the length is great for reaching into a large pot or oven.

    from Havana Nights Café & Bakery Inc. Posted on

    Great Product, these tongs are a must have in any kitchen. Works great to reach items on a hot grill or in a pan on the back burner.

    Posted 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. Posted 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 Posted on
