Great Kitchen Tongs
Darryl from New York, NY– Verified Buyer
I was torn between the metal tipped version of these tongs and this nylon version. Ultimately I went with the nylon because it was better for my non-stick pots and pans. They serve their purpose well and I haven't come across anything these couldn't grip. They are very springy and easy to clean. The locking mechanism works as advertised and they are very comfortable to use for cooking and serving food.

IT WORKS AS STATED, GOOD WEIGHT, NOT CHEAP LIGHT MATERIAL

These are great! The locking mechanism actually works, unlike some other tongs I've purchased. They're very comfortable and easy to use.

I love these tongs - I use them for everything. Whenever people come over for dinner, they ask me where I got these tongs.
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.
