I find that a good set of kitchen tongs are an essential part of my kitchen. I use them for all those jobs such as turning steaks on the grill, sausages,kebabs, chicken pieces, tossing and serving a salad and a myriad of other cooking tasks.
For many years I used a set of tongs with the black silicone tops which is essential to making sure I don’t scratch any of my non-stick cookware. Well, although my set is functional, black sure doesn’t have the whizz bang effect that this set of Rachael Ray tongs has. Because like all Rachael Ray kitchen accessories, these tongs are available in her signature color of orange.
So apart from being one of those really useful kitchen essentials these tongs add a bit of pizzaz when it comes to serving food.
Now another feature that I really like about these Rachael Ray 2-Piece ‘lil Hugger Tongs’ is that the heads of the tongs are designed to withstand heat up to 500°F, so you can use them on the grill without worrying if they are going to melt, and the tong handles will withstand up to 350 ºF.
They have grippy silicone handles which are comfortable to hold and make it really easy to hold onto slippery foods such as corn on the cob.
When you have finished using the tongs they lock into a closed position for easy storage in the drawer or utensil holder. You will be really happy with how easy these tongs are to clean and they are dishwasher safe. Included in the set are tongs in the following sizes:
- One pair measuring 9 inches
- One pair measuring 12 inches
The Rachael Ray tong set is one of those really useful kitchen utensils that you will have you wondering how you ever did without them.
