Link? Coincidentally I saw those at a Japanese restaurant last week and wondered how to find some.

I have a set of Pampered Chef that I have been using for years. They are a bit pricy but they are heavy duty, long with solid handles, and will pick up smaller items well. they also have a close, locking mechenism at the end for storage. Not sure if they still sell them but I have not bought another pair in over 10 years. Check them out.

You would think so, but I have a cheap pair that I bought from the local restaurant supply store. I liked them well enough that I went back and bought another pair, some time later.

They’re not the same. They both have the locking thingie, but the second pair I bought has a lock that locks by pushing it down, toward the business end…and it’s loose and sloppy…so if you point them downward, closed, the damned lock engages.

Some day, they’re going to get flung into the bushes.

I think these are the same, but cost 50% less. Mine are like this but have no name on them. I think I bought them at a Marshall's about 15 years ago. I love 'em.

Whichever ones you get, always remember to give them 2 test clicks before every use.

I thought 3 clicks was the industry standard.
Unless you are clicking them toward someone then the faster and more clicks the better.

My big, fearsome ferocious Rottweiler used to run away and make the “why do you hate me?” face when I clicked tongs at him.

Naturally, I did it all the time.

It's actually 6. Three to condition it then three more for the test

Unless the wife is standing nearby, then one firm sqeeze of her behind after 2 fast clicks will suffice. I like this style. I have a long pair I'm partial to.

The cheap 16" ones are the way to go, IMO, besides little hot dog tongs for things like fried tacos.





I use this massive spatula much more.
