Tongs are like an extension of your hand...they reach further, and can pick up hot things that you wouldn't want to touch. We find that they are most useful when, like your hand, they open and close without getting another hand involved. This is why we've always loved the One-handed Locking Tongs from Rösle. But we know these aren't for everyone and the operation is a learned skill. So we've been on the look-out for an alternative that has a single-handed operation and great functionality...and we found it!
The Progressive 12" One-handed Tongs in stainless steel and silicone are cleverly designed and intuitive to use.
Easy operation: There is a friendly red thumb-operated slider on the side of one arm (large enough to push easily, even with greasy hands!), which has 3 positions: closed (for storage), partially open (for smaller pick-ups), and fully open (for grabbing everything else). Once you’ve put the slider into the desired position, the tongs won’t open any more than that, but they will close around your target very easily.
Non-stick pan friendly: With a silicone coating at the business end, you can use these tongs in any non-stick pan without fear of scratching the pan.
Good gripping: The stainless steel teeth below the silicone tips provide a secure grip and good hold.
- Easy Storage: The closed position makes the tongs very compact to save space in your kitchen drawer.
One-handed: And, of course, the one-handed operation means that your other hand is free for something more important… like holding a glass of wine!
Tongs are essential in every kitchen, and one-handed tongs are the royalty of the breed. The Progressive One-handed Tongs has great functionality, combined with sleek style. These are definitely a Cool Tool!
