The tongs are very well made and heavy duty. They feel strong enough to pick up a small baby.

The round tab at end is great for keeping this extra wide tong closed when not in use. Goes through dishwasher fine.
Nice, but tips bend easily

Nice locking tongs, only complaint is that the ends tend to bend and then need to be manipulated back into place.

Bought my son a lot of kitchen tools for his first flat, OXO is a very reliable solid product. Never a problem.
The OXO Good Grips line has been recognized by several national and international organizations for superior design and today is regarded as one of the icons of Universal Design.
The goal of making products more usable forces OXO's product designers to first identify problems and inefficiencies of existing products (including their own), not only in terms of comfort, but performance as well. This gives them the foundation to meet their commitment of making only products that offer tangible improvements. Each year, OXO introduces more than 50 products. Many of these products take more than two years to develop. In fact, a few of the products never make it to the market because they fail to meet the OXO criteria.
The line has grown to more than 500 innovative products covering many areas of the home. Since founder Sam Farber sold the company and retired from OXO in 1995, the company was purchased in 1999 by World Kitchen, Inc., a housewares company based in Reston, Virginia, and then again in 2004 by Helen of Troy Limited. Today, OXO continues to be focused on creating innovative solutions for problems that users experience in their everyday tasks.
