Not sure why we use them all the time, but we do.
We got two of these tongs and they hardly ever make it back to the drawer.
The size of them makes them perfect for my kids to use (ages 7 and 10yrs).
They are a great product to use while cooking or for at the table for serving food.
My kids love when we have guests and the lock bit on it prevents the tongs from opening, but it has to be said they are not at all difficult to use.
