Drawing upon more than 50 years of culinary experience, we've designed and developed an exclusive line of nonstick kitchen tools-perfect for use with nonstick cookware. Giving you a firm, one-handed grasp on foods when you're panfrying, sauteing and grilling, our professional-quality tongs have heat-resistant silicone-coated tips. The ergonomically engineered stainless-steel handles ensure excellent balance and control-and make the tongs exceptionally comfortable to use. Designed and developed by Williams-Sonoma, and exclusively ours. All-purpose tongs grasp foods securely, without causing punctures that would allow flavorful juices to escape. Stainless-steel tips are coated with durable silicone that's heat resistant to 500deg.F (260deg.C). Handle is made of heavy-gauge, nonreactive 18/10 stainless steel with a brushed finish. Ergonomic handle offers optimal balance, comfort and feel. Using just one hand, you can lock the tongs closed for compact storage. Automatic lock opens tongs when they're pointed down and given a squeeze, and closes and locks when tongs are pointed up. BPA-free and safe for use with nonstick cookware, bakeware and electrics.
