Customer Reviews


Great tongs for saute or fry stations. I prefer spring loaded tongs for grill stations if you use grill weights, since they bear the weight a bit better, but these ones from Vollrath are a little sturdier than off brand models, and while they might not work as well as spring loaded for that particular application, I still tend to trust I won't drop a stack of steak weights. Coating held up very well.

Michael A. on 12/20/2021

These Vollrath tongs are by far the best tongs we have used. They are nice and stiff and the handles are comfortable and cool. This 12" size works great to grab things on the charbroiler or griddle. Would purchase again!

Ryan A. from ZOMO LLC on 05/08/2019

I like having these for certain applications where locking tongs may be too harsh on the product. Also less chance of breaking unlike locking tongs which the springs can break after only a few months. The recoil on these may give out eventually but at least you don't have to worry about employees inadvertently breaking them prematurely

Johnny L. from Rakki Ventures on 11/30/2018

It was important to us to be able to color co-ordinate where tongs would be used and what food type to go with. This really helps.

Mike H. from Dogonit Hotdogs on 09/01/2018

Purchased item to replace worn ones used on hot bar. The older ones were the same brand and held up to years of abuse in a commercial environment. These hold up very well.

Jared D. on 08/29/2018

Great tongs for any use. The hold up well to high heat and flame (minus the handle coating as expected). Handle does stay cool even when I know the metal tong area is hot.

Andrew C. on 07/23/2018

These tongs are not that expensive the plastic layer makes it not hot for Example If there is a medal tong without the piece of plastic on something hot it would burn you but the plastic stops that

Mohamed S. from Business on 04/06/2018

I love the cool touch tongs. I always have a set in my hands. they are not just a tool they are an extension of my hand!

Frontline F. from Frontline Foundations, Inc. on 02/05/2018

Very good quality tong by Vollrath! This one comes with black coated handle! Easy to use and clean! We use it in conjunction to deep fryers! 4 stars!

Kase L. from Queens Pizzaria on 01/06/2018

These are great, especially if you work in a restaurant. They don't break unlike other tongs we have tried. I would highly recommend these tongs.

Laura H. on 11/12/2017

The Vollrath Jacob's Pride 12" Stainless Steel Scalloped Tong with Black Coated Kool-Touch Handle has a handle that is comfortable to grip and it doesn't get hot if it is too close to the flames. It can withstand a lot of use.

Sara H. on 10/04/2017

12" stainless steel scalloped tong with black coated kool-touch handle are nice to use. They are long enough to reach things that are further back in the flames.

Treva P. from Treva's Pastries And Fine Foods on 08/17/2017

these are the best tongs I have ever used. One piece design won't fall apart. Holds a good amount of weight without slipping ( I pick up deep dish pizzas with them). Plastic coating keeps it from slipping in your hand.

Greg B. from Big Family Pizza, Inc on 07/25/2017

Great that this has a nice long handle, perfect to keep your hands cool when grilling meats or veggies on the grill. Love the coated handle.

Luciana T. on 05/23/2017

These tongs are awesome. We've only had them for a few weeks but they are holding up well so far. I think the coating on the handle will make the metal last longer without breaking.

Derek E. from Chick-Fil-A on 07/01/2016

easy to grip for small hands. handle stays cool. long enough to reach across the hot griddle or stove. Price is right so buy a few.

Billie J. from Daniel C Tolner on 05/31/2016

These appealed to me because they are a one-piece style, are stainless steel and have coated handles. So far, I am extremely impressed. They "snap" just like a traditional pair with a separate spring, are easy to clean and do no open so wide that they are difficult to store. A good price for a terrific American-made product

Russell H. from Russ H. on 04/15/2016

Great tongs. This size is a good length for working with over high heat. Can definitely recommend these. Nice quality and well made. Good product.

Michael P. from Mike's Mindful Plate on 06/11/2015

These tongs are amazing I absolutely love them, I have had these for several years and they are still firm. What I like about them is that they are soft to use not like other brand tongs that make your hands hurt. Will buy them again soon.

Martha M. on 02/18/2015

I have only used these for home use but they are awesome! All the tongs I have purchased from different companies are not even close to being good as these. I would highly recommend.

Rebecca M. on 02/02/2015

These are comfortable tongs, and are fantastic at protecting your hand from the heat of whatever you are picking up or turning. The coated handle is comfortable, and makes it easier to hold onto these than regular, uncoated tongs. It definitely put less fatigue on my hand than a standard tong.

Stephanie M. on 09/14/2014

We like these vollrath tongs they are sturdy for picking up heavy plates from the cheese melter . They don't have the spring to worry about them breaking fast.

Christine E. from Spokes II Inc. on 06/24/2014

Love these tongs - the length is perfect to keep your hand away from the steam, the scalloped edge grips great without damaging your product and they wash up so easily and retain their color. My BOH really liked the idea of using the color coded tongs. I use the black one for my cooked product. Great pricing/delivery through Webstaurant!

Ellen D. from Steelwagon Franks on 04/29/2012

Used for turning items in my hot oil fryer. The non-metal grips are sure handed and keep any heat from getting to my hands. The metal tongs are heavy gauge stainless and the metal tension hinge is sprung perfectly. Easy to clean right through the auto dishwasher.
