Tongs (Set of 2)
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 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.

Here are our favorite kitchen utensils -- the ones we won't give up in favor of a simpler life. It's funny how so many of our answers are about tools that are just so "satisfying" to use!Click through for pitters, slicers, and choppers galore.
