Customer Reviews


Great pair of tongs. Sturdy and easy to use. No pinching like you would get with tongs that have a hinge. I've been using pom tongs for years because they are really the easiest and most efficient type to use, in my opinion.

These Pom tongs are the best. They are not kidding when they say “Heavy Duty”. So glad I went with these Instead of the cheap ones for our salad bar. They make it easy to pick up food and place it in your container. We also purchased the 9" ones and they are the same quality. They will last a lifetime. Hope this helps

These Vollrath 47042 Heavy Duty 12" Pom Tongs are a really well made product. Sturdy and streamlined. We ordered 6 of these tongs for the purpose of selecting doughnuts for our customers but also use them for grabbing warm foods from our warmers when assembling breakfast sandwiches. Like the simplicity of the design too, easy to use, easy to clean.
