Tongs that belong (in your kitchen).

A good pair of everyday tongs will serve you well, and a pair of pairs will serve you even better. These dynamos have heat-resistant silicone at the ends (they’re resistant up to 550°F), plus a precise 35-degree opening that’s narrow enough to control, yet wide enough to grab whatever you please. And when you’re done? Pull the silicone tab at the top to lock ‘em shut. The 12-inch tongs can tackle all kinds of cooking tasks: flipping scallops, whipping up stir fry, plucking corn on the cob from boiling water... And the 9-inch tongs are great for smaller tasks—serving at the table, too. Bonus: Both will zip through the dishwasher when they’re finished saving the day.
