Who doesn’t like grilling? Who doesn’t need a set of tongs that will outlast anything you buy in a store? These are far more robust compared to mass-produced tongs, allowing for a secure grip on food items without the risk of bending or breaking.
These tongs are made out of 1/2″ mild steel and are solid. The handles measure around 16″ in length allowing you to stay back from the grill and not burn your hands.
The spring is 1/8″ mild steel and attached with hand-forged rivets. These will hold up for years and years of use and abuse. If the tongs ever get out of alignment, or won’t open enough, you can gently bend them by grabbing at the opening and twisting them to realign or pull them apart a bit to get a larger opening.
The tapered design with simple twist lends a simple and clean look.
These are pre-seasoned with a food safe vegetable oil. After use clean the utensil by hand washing. DO NOT place in a dishwasher. Dry the utensil by hand using a cloth. Periodically you should rub a light coating of oil (vegetable or canola are a few recommended options) on the utensil. Treat it like cast iron.
If you do get some surface rust, then you can use a non-abrasive scrubbing pad pad, or a wire brush if you have one, to clean off the rust. Afterwards rub a light coat of oil over everything.
If you follow these directions, then your utensil will last you a lifetime and more!
