    These tongs are great because you can cook not food with them and they won't melt theirs is the best price you can find around.

    from H&H CITY PIZZA Posted on

    These are a little hard on the hand to compress. I found them a little awkward to use. However, they do the job. They don't have a way to keep them closed, so storing them takes up a lot of space.

    I just love these little tong! They are so heavy and strong for such a cheap price. I bought them to use on a buffet for fruits and veggies and they have now made it to my personal kitchen. They are perfect for smaller items and foods! I will likely purchase more!

    Nice heavy duty tongs

    These don't feel as sturdy as you would expect the "heavy duty" tongs to be. The hinge is a little floaty. There are the perfect size for the make table though.

    from Big Mike's BBQ Posted on

    I needed a small tong to go with a small Yakatori grill. It is a durable little tool. I will be ordering the larger sizes too.

    7" Heavy Duty Stainless Steel Utility Tong these are amazing, lovely quality and heavy duty, nothing flimsy here, I need more of these in my life.

    from Mocha Choca Latte Posted on

    These tongs are perfect for breading applications. One for the egg and another for the flour and seasoning mixture. I only wish it had the ring to keep these closed when not in use or in storage.

    Breading some Chicken.

    Great tongs, nice for many tasks such as tossing and serving salads or flipping smaller things out of a pan to serve. Great heavy duty material.

    Posted on

    I use these tongs almost everyday! They quickly became an essential part of my kitchen, and I use them with every meal. I use them during the cooking process and when serving. They wash well and are a great size in my hand.

    from JB Corp. Posted on

    Heavy duty material but the spring is way too heavy. I have another brand that is similar but the spring tension is much lighter which is what you expect with a small tong used for more delicate tasks. Several of my cooks have had them pop out of their hands while using if the tongs are wet or their hands are. I will probably throw them away and purchase the other brand I have to replace them.

    Highly recommend!!

    Great price and application with no regrets for using with buffet services. It gives a much better look than using plastic tongs and is well worth the price

    from Lubys kindred spring 0780 Posted on

    Durable item that holds up for high volume and everyday use. We have roughly 50 pairs between two restaurants and haven't had an issue. Will buy again.

    from The Grumpy Monk Posted on

    This is a very simple pair of tongs. They aren't fancy, but at this price and quality, they're a bargain. Should last for many years.

    Posted on

    I am so happy that I bought these. So many times I have tried to use my large tongs when plating and it was always a challenge. With these, it is very easy to get just the right amount of garnish. Also very handy with shrimp or sushi.

    Posted on

    These are the perfect size for serving. They are very heavy duty and will last a life time. we enjoy having these around for serving hot wings and other hot fried food.

    from desalvo's Posted on

    These are the perfect size for serving side dishes at our family style establishment. They fit in small bowls without falling out the top and can easily be passed around the table. Durable and sturdy.

    from His Mansion Posted on

    These are the perfect size for our medium size serving dish. They are just big enough to set inside without falling out.

    These tongs are great and the at fair price. It's dishwasher safe and very good quality. Very useful flipping steaks and meats on the frying pan or serving a salad. I will purchase more of these for my kitchen...

    so, i will admit straight away that these tongs just don't work for me. they are very small which is nice for delicate tasks but because they are "heavy duty" the spring/snap mechanism is veeeerry strong so its difficult to close them without gripping close to the tong ends, which sort of defeats the purpose of using tongs to begin with. i just think it's a slight design flaw. the tongs themselves are very solid though, so theres no manufacturing issue or anything.

    Posted on

    I totally like this thong, easy to clean and used a lot every time I do a Chicken, and pork BBQ and also grilling vegetables.

    Posted on

    These are great! They have an extremely strong resistance to them giving you the assurance that you will be able to grab just about anything.

    Posted on

    These tongs are great. We use them for picking up meat to portion into our authentic tacos and we couldn't be happier about their efficiency.

    from Bomb Tacos LLC Posted on

    I love the size, these tongs are petite and cute. The metal is dense and they feel sturdy. However, the spring on these is intense! They are hard to use because the spring offers so much resistance. I would not buy them again unless I knew the spring resistance was change. I know they say heavy duty, but the spring does not need to be so strong.

    Posted on

    7 inches as it turns out is fairly small, so unless you have smaller hands (mine are average) or you want this to be safe for kids (I don't have any) I suggest getting a bigger one. I now use this, since it is smaller to pick out things in the likes of soup, broth, stew etc as it is a bit more precise than your average tong but I do plan on ordering a larger one to handle meat and other bigger food products.

    Posted on

    Disappointed. The spring mechanism is way too strong on these. They can slip/pop out of your hand if you're not careful. Plus, your hand cramps from having to grip it so tightly. I bought these based on reviews but myself and staff agree we need to find something else.

    The 7" Heavy Duty Stainless Steel Utility Tong is a great buffet option. The Tongs are a little difficult house at first but seem to slack up after a few uses.

    Posted on

    Great for a salad bar or buffet. This is the thid time ordering these tongs we have about thirty and never broke one. They are very durable and heavyduty stainless.

    from Major toms Posted on

    nice small pair of tongs, we use these a lot and they take some decent abuse, they hold up well and recommend them to everyone.

    Posted on

    These tongs are a good value at a fair price. They do meet the demands of our busy kitchen and can be used on buffet lines and front of the house applications. They present well.

    Posted on

    The TONGS are a great value. Easy to clean and perfect for fetching fried foods. The 7" size makes it easier to place near fryer without utilizing much counter space.

    from Chandler Select Posted on

    Didn't know they made a pair tongs for the small I prefer the short tongs over the long ones they're good well-made song I like the fact that they are completely rolled around and there are solid type pong and don't have a groove in the middle where your finger can get pinched in some times.

    from Place to be Bistro Posted on

    these tongs are great I was worried they would be too short or flimsy but they are great strong and spring works great too love it

    from home Posted on

    These are a little smaller than expected but they still work perfectly for our needs. They are easy to use and to clean and store.

    from Lindsey Wilson College Posted on

    These are cute little tongs that are better looking and heavier than the tongs offered under the "serving tongs" section. We use them mainly to serve appetizers. Just the right size for that.

    Posted on

    This 7 inch heavy duty stainless steel utility tong is very well made and feels good and sturdy in the hand. This size has been great to handle small sliced vegetables like cucumber and tomatoes.

    from Khaan Deli LLC Posted on

    Great tong not just for buffet but we also use them in the kitchen. Price and quality are outstanding. And size is just right to your hand.

    from Tong Posted on

    Just as you'd expect. It's a great heavy duty tong that should last forever. I bought several and use them for all types of duties.

    7" Heavy Duty Stainless Steel Utility Tong are small buy strong we use them in Iour sandwich applications because they handle the meat and low loses

    from PowerQuee Media Posted on

    These tongs are a nicer guage stainless steel, and serve their purpose well, however they are a little bit stiff for people to use if they are older and don't have strenght the squeeze the tongs together. They are exactly as the specs state they are and are shiny and nice looking on our banquet lines.

    from GBF Catering Posted on

    Really great little tongs! They are very solidly built and have a really heavy duty spring in them! Great for small kitchen jobs and for serving!

    Posted on

    These stainless steel tongs are a great buy. They are strong and durable and last forever. They're easy to use, easy to wash, and our cafe staff loves them!

    from Oak Hill Bulk Foods, Inc. Posted on

    Cute 7 inch tongs. They are made of staibless steel so they are very durable. It comes in dofferent sizes for your convenience. These, however are better for home use since they are short

    Posted on

    I was surprised at how firm the spring is and I think that's a good thing. They are short and firm so handling donuts and other baked goods is easy. Lots of control.

    from Little Lots Farms Posted on

    Very happy customer. Using these tongs for many different events, party's. They are heavy duty, excellent quality and perfect 7 inch for many things, like serving a buffet. I love the smaller size since will use more often than reg. 9 inch size. Exceptional pricing and customer service. Some of mine arrived scratched and they are replacing them immediately for me. Just ordered 24 tongs and will be ordering more soon.

    Posted on

    Great utility tongs, great price. I ordered a bunch of these for my coffee shop and they work great and are holding up well. They wash nicely too.

    from Serving Grace Cafe Posted on

    These 7inch heavy duty tongs are great for smaller portioning. They also can be used for other purposes such as flipping steaks or chicken. Very sturdy as well.


    Used the 7" Heavy Duty Utility Tongs to pick up baby carrots. These heavy duty tongs had no trouble picking up the baby carrots. So easy to use and precise.

    from jwhitten31 Youtube name Posted on

    these 7 in heavy duty tongs were awesome! we are very pleased at how quickly they were shipped, at the low price, but great quality of these tongs. we have not been able to find them anywhere for a better price!

    from QPR Posted on

    Love these tongs! Sturdy construction and nice finish. These are replacements for plastic tongs that just were not holding up. These seem like they will last quite a while. We will be purchasing more of these.

    from Deliciously Dipped Posted on

    Tong is super strong and durable. Made of thick stainless steel material. It is easy to use and can pick up light and heavy food items.

    Posted on

    I bought these utility tongs for use in buffets and gatherings. They look very nice on the buffet table. For the price, you can't get a better value.

    Posted on

    this tong is very hand.y. it's very compact, so I just take this whenever I go to the potluck party. It's great to grab small baked goods like cupcakes and muffins.

    Posted on

    This is a great tong. it is a very good price and it is the perfect size. We use them for just about everything on our line

    Posted on

    These utility tong is perfect for my salad bar or Bruschetta Bar, they will last for a long time due to their quality, I defenetly recommend them.

    from Mimi's Fusion of Flavors Posted on

    the 7" Heavy Duty Utility Tongs are pretty darn tiny, what this tong lacks for in size is definitely made up for in durability and quality of construction.

    from Furniture Forager Posted on

    I love these small tongs. I did not realize they were small when I ordered them, but after I got them, they are great. I use them to serve salad. They are perfect and because they are small they don't hang over the platter.

    Posted on

    Great tongs for flipping bacon or roasting veggies. These tongs are easy to control without fatigue setting in. The larger ends make it easy to manipulate larger items while cooking.

    from Gorge Kitchen Posted on

    We use these for serving baked goods out of our deli case and they're the perfect size to pick up most jumbo muffins, scones and pastries without damaging them.

    from Deep Creek Coffee Co Posted on

    These utility tongs through Webstaurant.com are replacing the ones I have been using. These 7" tongs are very heavy, look great and feel good in the hand.

    from Sweet Willow Company Posted on

    These are great for small jobs, like grabbing ice cubes. Tonight, I used them to serve shrimp. They don't have a mechanism to keep them closed when not in use, but I wouldn't expect that with such a small price tag. These are solid with a good spring...Great deal for the price.

    Posted on

    These utility tongs are great. They have the shorter handle on them, but it is handy when working in tight areas where the longer handles are too long.

    Posted on

    Great for using on small cold items that are ready to eat. Keep a good spring to them and are space saving. I would recommend these to anyone with a sandwich station or salad bar.

    from Papa Joe's Grill Posted on

    Very nice quality tongs, they have a well balanced feel and should last a very long time. They are nice and thick so they shouldnt bend easy. They are very small though.

    from Tripps Primal Farm and Kafé Posted on

    When they say heavy duty they meant it! For the price the quality is great. I figured they would be similar to what you get in the stores a weak spring, but not these.

    from work Posted on

    Not that they aren't great for the price, but they feel very flimsy. I still use them and they have yet to actually break, but every time I pick up something like a pork cop I wonder if this is the end.

    Posted on

    These were a little smaller than I thought they would be.but turns out they work very well for serving rolls or any type of bread.

    from Simply Catered Posted on

    Our go to tongs for salad bar and toppings. Use for line service in small 1/3 pans. Perfect size and dishwasher proof for proper sanitation

    from Cafe Marty Posted on

    These little dudes are super sturdy and have very stiff spring-action which will hold up well for repeated buffet use. They stand up well to frequent dish-washing and the price is definitely right.

    from October Catering Posted on

    These are great little tongs for serving platters and for self serve meals. They feel of good quality and are hold up with for me. I expect to get years of use from them. Very pleased.

    Posted on

    I am a loyal customer for this website. I ordered this tong nit only cheap but also good and commercial quality. Always recommend this website.

    from Little Lotus Posted on

    Perfect size tongs for buffet. The heavy duty is a big plus. Used the tongs at numerous family events and gatherings. Friends and familys loved them also.

    Posted on

    Great little utensil and very useful. Feels even sturdier than the 12" one. It is a little hard to close if you're gripping too far back so not very useful for grilling but great for serving. Only downside to these is that they don't come with a latch to keep it closed so they're a little awkward to store.

    Posted on

    I bought this for a conco de mayo/fight party we were having. We used them for our taco bar toppings. They are definitely heavy duty and great to use in small bowls.

    Posted on

    These are great tongs to use for precision grabbing. We use them on delicate foods and to remove foods from the toaster, waffle iron, muffin pans, etc.

    Posted on

    Overall a good quality product. The tongs are heavy duty and are at a good price. The only down side is the 7" length limits the distsnve you can work from. These tongs are better for cold side work.

    Posted on

    High quality, low price. Very easy to clean and have an excellent gripping ability. I use these daily to transfer fried foods from the drain tray to the serving baskets

    from The Colonial Hotel Posted on

    Great tongs. I underestimated how small 7" is, so make sure you really pay attention to the pictures before you order. If you are not wanting a long handle to deal with, these are perfect for you. I found great use for these while cooking chicken (or any other kind of meat) on a skillet.

    Posted on

    These small tongs are VERY durable. I've used them for over about a year now and they haven't worn at all. Nice smaller size for picking items out of 6th pans.

    Posted on

    Very durable and solid. Has a nice feel to it. My kids love using them as these are smaller size tongs and feel more comfortable in smaller hands.

    from ifoodblogger.com Posted on

    Small, easy to handle and convenient 7-inch tongs

    Great for employee meal time, just the right size as not to interupt the cooks and allow the other employees to get their food without using one of the cooks utensil. This item is a must for each kitchen.

    Posted on

    If you don't want to long of a handle these tongs are great. We used many for hot foods like ham bbq so not a lot of juice on plate. Easy clean up.

    Posted on

    Good solid tongs. After about a year of daily use the spring in the handle gave out and broke, but for the price it is still pretty goos. They feel good and solid in your hand. If your grilling i would recommend a longer size but these are perfect for anything else.

    from Daily Grinders Posted on

    Perfect tongs for prepping things like salad, where smaller to larger amounts of ingredients have to be grabbed and mixed. I love having these at our prep stations.

    from Mike's Mindful Plate Posted on

    First, these are really good quality. Second, these are very small! They are not good for anything that is too hot or splattering, as your hand will be very close to the food. They are good for picking up muffins or cookies or waffles. Mostly my youngest uses them when she helps me in the kitchen.

    Posted on

    It's rare to find tongs of this small size that are built for heavy duty use. these tongs are made of thick gauge stainless steel that hold up nicely without any warping or bending. The small size provides a lot of control and delicate maneuvering. These tongs are strong enough to firmly grasp a whole chicken and pull it out of a stockpot when making broth.

    from Home Use Posted on

    We use these tongs mainly for serving buffet items. They are comfortable in the hand and very durable. It is worth the small amount extra to purchase the heavy duty tongs.

    from The Savory Spoon Catering Co. Posted on

    These tongs have a nice heavy feel to them that screams quality. The shorter handle allows you to use them as serving tongs as well. The price here is much lower than our local restaurant supply store.

    Posted on

    Tongs! You can never have enough of them... these are what I would consider medium duty not heavy duty by far, but they do fit the bill for what i needed them for, and they were cheap, so hey!

    from AWG Private Chefs Posted on

    Ordering from Webstaurant is always a breeze. 2-day shipping is awesome. The tongs are made of nice metal, they feel good in your hand. They are small enough but grab as well as a bigger size tongs.

    from TAPEO Restaurant Posted on

    We have gone through several flimsier pairs of serving tongs, so we got these to use for buffets. Their size is good for 1/9 pans of product, and they still function and look fantastic.

    Posted on

    I purchased these thinking they were standard size but realized after receiving them that 7" is quite small (my bad). That being said, they are very good quality and sturdy. I wish all my larger tongs were as nice. We use them at a salsa bar self-serve station and they serve their purpose well.

    Posted on

    I was very surprised when I got these in yesterday. I was afraid to order them online in fear of getting some really cheaply made thin tin foil type of tongs... Not these. Heavy duty and reliable. These will be used on my condiment station for customers to put on their own onions, jalapenos, pickles, etc. They are small enough to handle the fixins and easy for the kids to use em too.

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

    These little tongs are nice and sturdy. The spring is a little tough though, rather difficult for me to squeeze and maneuver. Maybe this will get easier with use? And I really wish I had ordered the longer ones, maybe 9-10 inches. They are too short for most jobs - including getting things out of a hot sautee pan. But they do the trick for grabbing small quantities out of the sandwich station containers.

    from 7th Heaven Cafe Posted on

    Thank you for your review! We're sorry to hear you find your tongs difficult to squeeze and too short for most jobs. For longer tongs, try these 10” Heavy Duty Tongs.

    These are great tongs! They truly are heavy duty & I couldn't believe the price! I now know where to come when we need more!

    Great quality again from the Webstaurant store. I made a little mistake thinking this was 7" handle not 7" total length, so when I received it was surprised at how small it was. But that is totally fine! I have use for a smaller pair of tongs.

    These tongs are perfect for mixing and applying dressings to individual portions of salads. The small size is also convenient for plating delicate greens elegantly.

    These tongs were exactly what we ordered and they work very good. We were able to save a lot of money buying online rather than normal purchasing routes.

    from breezy point international Posted on

    Very sturdy tongs which hold up well under heavy use without warping or excessively flexing. This size is perfect for saute work or for serving hot food.

    These tongs are shorter than most and our restaurant staff loves having them around as an alternative to longer tongs. Great for handling smaller items used in salads.

    Posted on

    Heavy duty tong, good buy, good quality, no rust so far so good, way better than those sold in dollar store, will buy a long one in my next order

    Nice size for multiple uses. Please take the time to remove the stickers from the tong BEFORE you wash them for the first time! These are heavy duty and look sturdy for years of use.

    from Reeps Grove UMC Posted on

    These small tongs are perfect for home or professional use. We carry a dozen of them to every catering event to either use as part of an hors d'oeuvres display, or to use with our replenishing trays. Perfect size and amazing quality!

    from Bocca Felice, LLC Posted on

    Using the 7" tongs as part of an antipasti wreathe at a Christmas catering event. Perfect size for buffet use.

    These are the perfect size for me when I do my cooking classes. When doing something individual on one burner in from of you, you don't need anything larger. Seven inches is a little small for commercial use, or for reaching over one burner to the next.

    from Chef Stef Posted on

    These tongs are smaller than your typical tong but they were perfect for my buffet tables! Great for use by kids and adults. Impressed by its durability and quality!

    Posted on

    I only order 5 of this on Mar 2013 during my big shipment but I don't expect anything because it's just a tong right? There is a big difference between you pickup one in dollarstore because the cheap one comes with a metal ring and no so elastic spring that does not last long and this one is solid, you feel the metal difference. The only down side about this product if you have a small hand, you might need more power to control it but there isn't any smaller size with this material

    Posted on

    Good quality. The size is perfect, not too small, not too big, just perfect! i don't think you can find anything better than this. I will buy more.

    Posted on

    We ordered multiple sizes of these tongs to have in the kitchen. They are used for multiple purposes, these are smaller than I pictured, but they are very handy to have around.

    These 7 inch tongs work great for small jobs. From turning fried food in a pan, to serving food on the table, these tongs are great, and since they are so small they are easy to store.

    Posted on

    Great tongs for low mein as all my customers tell me. The 4'' ones were too short so they requested these and for that purpose they work but even for the grill etc. Perfect.

    Posted on

    I should have measured but these tongs were super small. They may be good for ice. The price was ridiculously low so there is no loss and we'll find a use for them.

    from Barfly Inc. Posted on

    With such a great unbeatable price, these tongs are a must have! Great to buy a lot of! Good for all sorts of uses in and out of the kitchen!

    I originally bought these tongs for guests to serve themselves from my chafers at my dinner parties, but I now find myself reaching for the them almost daily in my kitchen for food preparation. Very inexpensive and is so helpful to have in the drawers.

    Just the right size to put with vegetable and cheese trays. Cleans up well and can be reused. Dishwasher safe and a top notch quality tong.
