I think I've found the ultimate kitchen tongs! The cool new Clongs are silicone tipped stainless steel tongs that have innovative bends in the handle to keep them up and off the counter while cooking. They feature a unique click-lock button mechanism that lets you open and lock the tongs easily with one hand, durable stainless steel construction, safe, heat-resistant silicone tips to use on nonstick cookware and come in 9" or 12" long sizes. Great solution.
