Hard working kitchen tools & equipment are a must when tasks are to be completed quickly & efficiently. Investing in several good pairs of tongs should not be overlooked. Tongs with long handles, measuring approximately 16-inches, come on useful handy when grilling & smoking beef, chicken & pork while shorter styles, measuring approximately 9 or 12-inches, may be used for dredging items for frying or tossing tempting salad combinations just before serving.

How To Choose The Right Tongs

When entertaining is in order or for everyday meals, a pair of tongs on which you can rely makes cooking tasks much more simple. Buttermilk Fried Chicken, Classic Fried Green Tomatoes, Fried Catfish & Mexican Beef Milanesa are just a few items that benefit from them indoors while grilling chicken & pork tenderloin prove they are certainly a necessity when cooking outdoors. Tongs are available in many styles with features that slightly vary. The key is to invest in a few options because you will use them often & for different tasks.

Self-locking tongs are smart as they make storing them a cinch. Closing the tongs takes up less space keeping kitchen drawers neat & organized. These hard working tools are available in long & short varieties & in stainless steel finishes or nylon or silicone tipped with the latter being ideal for use over non-stick surfaces thus keeping them smooth & blemish-free. Choose one of each with a nylon or silicone tipped style in a shorter version. This will aide beautifully in dredging items for pan-frying & tossing salads. Although all stainless versions look great, it’s best to choose a pair of tongs that have non-slip handles that work two fold as they also keep heat at bay while in use, too.
