The Best Tool to Turn and Flip Your Hot Food

When you ask a person about a useful tool that is most commonly used in the kitchen, the first answer is probably the knife. The average person would think of a knife first, as it is the most versatile and common kitchen tool. Other answers include spoons, forks, and spatulas. Tongs, on the other hand, could be considered to be the least thought of among useful all-around tools. It could be that the name itself is not all that memorable, or it could be that the function of the tool itself may not seem all that important. In general, Tongs are designed to pick up, handle, and move objects from one place to another. These are usually made out of thin and sturdy metal or plastic, and have springy bases, long bodies split into two arms, and flat ends. This simple yet useful tool serves as an extension of one's hand, enabling us to turn and flip hot foods or hazardous materials without us burning or injuring ourselves.

When talking about tongs, we often mention it as "a pair of tongs", like how we say "a pair of scissors". Regarding its etymology, the word tong is derived from the Old English word "tange" which means "that which bites" a phrase that still relates to how modern tongs function to this day. Tongs have been around for quite a while, and it is believed that it existed even before recorded history. Scientists have stumbled across some evidence about Ancient Egyptians who used metal rods and tongs like tools to hold and cook food over a fire, and this is estimated to be around the year 1450 BC. Needless to say, this simple tool has been around for longer than we could ever know, and nowadays, even though a pair of tongs is not something newsworthy by any means, not having one would definitely affect many things in a household.

The best thing about tongs is that there are countless types and kinds of tongs. As we all know, tongs are mostly used in kitchens, however, tongs are also typically used in laboratories, factories, bars, restaurants, and schools. Tongs come in different sizes, shapes, and materials, and each combination of these serves a different and unique purpose as well, more on those later. The most common materials used for tongs is either plastic or metal. Plastic tongs are excellent for general-purpose cooking. These are able to withstand both cold and hot temperatures, even up to 300 degrees Fahrenheit. These plastic tongs are also able to conduct heat well with the use of rubber grips, so your hand will thank you later. On the other hand, metal tongs are more durable and sturdy than plastic ones. These are great for cooking heavy meats on a grill, as well as basic preparations in the kitchen. It is typical however that metal tongs get hot to the touch relatively quickly, so inexperienced cooks might want to shy away from this material. Nonetheless, whatever material the tongs are made out of, these tools serve a simple yet very useful function in our day to day lives.


Things to Consider When Buying Tongs

Like any other tool or gadget, tongs also have certain elements and specs that you should take into consideration. It could be quite confusing to beginners, but these are five factors you should take note of to make your tong shopping so much easier.

1. Size
As previously mentioned, tongs come in countless shapes and sizes. The most important thing here is that you should try it with your own hand and see if you can pinch, flip, and pick up objects comfortably with it. It shouldn't be hurting your hands, that means it's too heavy and big. It also shouldn't be too small that you're not able to pick up reasonable sized objects. Each person's hands are different in size, so the only way you'll know what tongs fit your hand is by trying them at the store. Of course, if you need ice tongs, then those are really small so you should get used to them. On the other hand, if you need a fry tong, then those are long for extra protection against hot oil, so you will have to get used to that length as well.

2. Head
These depend on your use case. There are tongs with solid stainless steel heads, which are durable and very easy to clean. These make grabbing items easy and less slippery. There are also tongs with heads made out of silicone, and this is designed to work alongside non-stick pans, however, these are typically not able to withstand very high temperatures.

3. Handle
There are two types of handle shapes for tongs - spring and scissors. These are self-explanatory. For spring tongs, it works similar to tweezers, which makes for easier grabbing of items and foods. It also takes less effort to use spring tongs. For scissor tongs, some people might have trouble using one, but these work great for bigger and heavier foods. Again, these tongs are specialized, so buy one according to your needs and not just by preference.


Types of Tongs

It is easy to dismiss tongs as a boring tool if you have only seen one kind, when in fact, there are numerous kinds of tongs that are designed for a specific type of work, inside or outside of the kitchen.

・Ice Tongs
As the name suggests, ice tongs are designed to grip, handle, and transfer ice from a container onto a glass, one piece at a time. These are always seen at bars, hotels, lounges, and restaurants. These are typically small in size and have cylindrical ends with sharp teeth at either side to better grip the ice since ice is very slippery and varies in shape. These are usually made out of metal, and since metal absorbs low temperatures quickly, a bartender is able to see if his ice bucket is cold enough just by looking at and touching the handle of the tongs. Ice tongs also promote good sanitation, as you could rest assured that nobody touched your drink or your ice with their fingers, they used clean tongs for that.

・Pom Tongs
This type of tongs are small and thin tools with small rounded edges and tiny teeth at both sides and is designed to handle delicate foods such as salad and fish. These may seem very niche, but it is actually a very important tool for buffets, restaurants, and home gatherings. This type of tongs are usually made out of wood or plastic, as it is not designed to handle high heat, but instead, it is for handling room temperature ingredients or dishes.

・Utility Tongs
As the name suggests, the utility tong is a general-use kitchen gadget. It could be used for tossing salads, plating dishes, garnishing, or transferring fried foods to a container. This is the most common type of tongs that is easily found in most households.

・Salad Tongs
What makes this great specifically for handling salads is that it has a spoon on one side and a fork on the other side, which works very efficiently with fragile greens in any salad. This works perfectly for transferring a salad from a big plate to a small one. This is also common in healthy households, but is mostly seen in restaurants and hotels.

・Buffet Tongs
This refers to tongs with a triangular hand-shape which is used for transferring a variety of items.

・Serving Tongs
This type of tongs is specifically designed to transfer food from the buffet container directly on the plate of a customer, and so usually has a design and could be made from unique materials such as chrome and satin steel. This is not that common in most households, but most buffets and waiters use this in order to make the customer experience even better.

・Bar Tongs
This is a small tong that is used by bartenders to handle and transfer fruits, olives, citrus slices, and other garnishes to different glasses. This is easily mistaken as an ice tong, which it could very well be, but what distinguishes those two from each other is simply the usage of them both.

・Snail Tongs
As the name suggests, these are specialized and custom-made tongs that are used to handle and serve the eponymous mollusk, mainly to grip the shell so that the meat could be removed and consumed. This is a very unique tong and is not that easy to find, but nonetheless are useful tongs especially for restaurants who serve snails or mollusks.

・Gripper Tongs
These tongs are specifically designed with square-ish and scalloped handles and flat ends similar to a spatula, and is excellent for separating frozen patties and cooking burgers.

・Paddle Tongs
These tongs are uniquely made out of bamboo. They serve the same purpose as normal tongs since these are made out of bamboo, these are typically used in events with a certain theme that matches its wooden aesthetic. These are typically used for serving food only and not for cooking at high temperatures.

・Scissor Tongs
as the name suggests, this is a combination of scissors and tongs. The handle is similar to scissors, since there are a pivot and two circular handles, and the end is purely like tongs with no sharp edges. These are great for grabbing heavy and dense items such as corn, and meats.

・Spaghetti Tongs
