The Elevate range comprises a variety of essential kitchen tools, including spoons, turners, tongs, spatulas and a pastry brush. ideal for use with non-stick cookware, their non-scratch heads are heat resistant up to 200ºC/392ºF. Elevate tools are available individually or as colourful sets (selected tools only). Please do not leave the tools unattended inside your pan. Handles are not heat resistant.

    I loved the look, but it is virtually impossible to pick anything up with these tongs because the green tips are so flexible that they do not grip.

    I have tried using them for turning sausages and also for serving vegetables and have been frustrated each time and have had to get out my metal tongs instead.

    I would like to be able to return these (mainly to give some feedback to Joseph Joseph), but they were a present and I have discarded all the packaging.

    I have found these useless although others obviously find them OK, trying to turn sausages over with them and they just slip off, being straight they have no way of gripping anything - so will try some others.

    I wish I'd seen these reviews before I purchased these tongs (from another supplier).

    I just cant believe this product ever got past the quality control dept.

    They look great and from the pictures you'd think these would be fine. After all what could be wrong about a designer set of tongs...

    Well they just have no grip. The green tips are too flexible and the inside face of the tips are silky smooth. So even if they do manage to grab something (which is very unlikely) it just slips out.

    As you close the tongs onto an item the green tips just bow outwards. I was simply unable to pick up even the smallest and lightest of vegetables.

    I'd have given these no stars if I could!

    I'll be sending these back for a refund.

    All looks and no substance!

    I'm a big fan of Joseph Joseph and have lots of products and I must honestly say that these tongs are only average I have another brand of tonges "Prepology" which are superior and have to say that I will continue to use them.

    Pros: Look Good Quality, Brand Name

    Cons: Do Not Grip Well

    We thought we'd get these nice looking tongs to match the excellent Joseph Joseph carousel set. They look good, but they simply do not work - at all! The plastic on the end is far too soft, so it just splays when grabbing an object and the slippery plastic just slides off. Pressing harder just makes the plastic bend more. Avoid this one but buy the carousel, each of them is great.

    I too am a fan of the Joseph Joseph range, and most of what I have from them is that perfect mix of form and function.

    In the case of these tongs, however, the form is there but the function isn't. The tips are too flexible and don't allow a good grip, and the spring in the handle isn't strong enough to allow the tongs to spring open when not being held.

    Not expensive, but a waste of money nonetheless.

    I usually find the Joseph Joseph products great so was greatly disappointed when these turned up, they have absolutely no grip whatsoever. The elevate part of them is great but other than that they are just useless!

    looks nice, great brand value but its fairly useless as a set of kitchen tongs. arms dont have enough strength and bite to grip any item of real substance and the grip points are too "fat" to grip smaller items - sits in a kitchen drawer and will never be used again - waste of money
