I thought that by having the release button at the top of the tongs would be easier, but it makes it a lot harder when you have to use both hands to open while cooking. Wish I can return !

Watch it if you're clumsy like me. The locking mechanism in this is so strong that the spring "Flings Open" once unlocked which is a recipe for liquid splatters. Not a bad thing necessarily and I got used to it. Some tongs feel flimsier but these have a really stable range of motion. The grips on the handle make it heavier and less likely to fling itself off the countertop. I have poor eyesight so this helps me be less clumsy.

Perfect for Outdoor Grilling and Smoking

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have often found myself with hair-less knuckles by the end of summer due to my short tongs making my reach across extreme heat and flames to retrieve and slip my food. These tongs have solved that simple but annoying problem. These are SO great for using to reach the back side of my pellet grill to flip chicken. The length is absolutely perfect. They also work great for cooking on my outdoor griddle to again, keep my hand further from the extreme heat. The metal material is great and shows very little wear even after my rough use cooking outside. They clean up so easy! Just rinse and toss in the dishwasher. The one downside to these is that they cannot be used on non-stick skillets or delicate surface cookware as the bare metal ends will scratch and ruin the surfaces. These are now my go-to grilling tongs!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I love how long they are and how easily I can grip them while cooking. Locking them and unlocking them is simple and works. One con I found is that due to the fact that the tip is round, these tongs don't grab little pieces of food too well, they work better with bib pieces. But, overall, they are great!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Love these tongs! I use these for grilling and they're very handy. Good length, easy to grip, easy to open and close, easy to clean, dishwasher safe, and they can be hung on the side of my grill with my other grilling tools. Everyone needs a good pair of tongs. OXO makes the very best tools for cooking and grilling. They never let me down.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] These 12" tongs are wonderful. I already had a pair of tongs from OXO with the nylon head, but I really wanted a set of entirely stainless steel tongs for certain use cases in the kitchen. I'm happy to say that I like these even better than the nylon tongs. I find them better at gripping onto food, like when I'm browning meat in my instant pot that I need to flip, and it's great that I don't have to worry about damaging the tips like I do with my nylon tongs. The spring in the tongs provides just the right amount of tension, and I love the tab that keeps the tongs closed when they're sitting in my drawer. And I love that these are dishwasher safe!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] They are easy to use and also easy to clean up after they are used. I use them every time I am cooking meat on the grill or even on the stove to turn them over and pick up my foods. They are comfortable to hold on your hand

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I really love these tongs. The length is perfect for searing meats and grilling so your not we close to the heat. They have a great grip and fold easily for storage. They also clean up very well unlike other tongs I’ve used

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] These 12" tongs are made from high quality stainless steel and are durable enough for everyday use. Great for cooking with stainless steel cookware and food prep. The locking mechanism is smooth and easy to use and doubles as a hanging hook. The black grips are removable for cleaning and the whole thing is dishwasher safe. The scalloped teeth line up perfectly and work for picking up small or delicate items. These are a definite step up from many other generic tongs and are worth the upgrade.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I found the 12 inch tongs to be very helpful, especially for when I was cooking meats on the stove or in the oven so that I could keep a distance from any hot oils. I think that these tongs would be great for grilling outside on a nice day also. They are easy to use, clean, and store.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] These Oxo Good Grips Locking Tongs may cost a bit more than some but are well made and just the right size for most kitchen jobs. The construction is stainless steel with substantial plastic handles. The locking mechanism is easy to operate too - you just push or pull the eyelet to open/lock the tongs and when locked they'll fit in an average kitchen draw. The ends grip most foods such as sausages, chicken legs etc. well and the tongs are easy to clean and dishwasher safe.

Great Grilling Tongs!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] These are great heavy duty tongs that will hold up for years of grilling abuse. I love how sturdy they are and the 12" length makes them long enough to grab things on the back of the grill without being too long. Just great all around tongs!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Love these BBQ tongs. They are a great length and have a slightly cushioned grip to them. The locking tab on the end has a hole for hanging them when not in use. So easy to clean. I just tossed them in the top rack of the dishwasher.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] These 12inch tongs are great for reaching the back of the oven and grill! The silicone grips are comfy to hold and the metal tips grip hot food with ease. The added length (over a shorter 9in pair) help reach items out of reach in your top cabinets as well! These are so easy to clean and make a satisfying "click" when you clap them.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Tongs are an essential tool in any kitchen and I love that these tongs can holds food without slipping. It’s not heavy and has a locking feature so it’s great for grabbing meat or vegetables. The tong looks great and has a nice polished look that easy to clean. Also it’s long enough that you won’t feel the heat on your arms and hands when handling food. Overall it would its a great product.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] These tongs are great!! They are perfect for grilling for so your hands don’t get so close to the grill. They are light weight but not so light as to feel cheap. They have a very nice grip. It is so easy to hold and use. The clamping is perfect. It’s not hard or easy. It’s perfect so you don’t drop your food. The locking mechanism is so easy to use. But not so easy as to being cheap made. They close up really good and fit perfect in my drawer. They also have a hole at the end so you can hang them also.
