One-Handed Locking Tong (Set of 2)
+ $ shipping surcharge
Lock on, lock off—using just one hand. The patented technology allows the tongs to open when pointed downwards, and close with a squeeze when pointed upwards. Toss salad with the smaller pair and flip a piece of steak with the longer tongs. Now do both simultaneously. Okay, maybe that’s not realistic without being ambidextrous or practicing a lot, but with both of these tongs in your kitchen, at least you can dream. Choose from all-stainless steel tongs or stainless steel with silicone heads (which play nicely with your nonstick and are heat resistant to 500°F.)
