Cuisipro Silicone Locking Tongs


Ideal for non-stick pans these tongs 'lock' for easy storage. To unlock them a quick prod on the hip, a la TV chefs, and hey presto.

Apart from the non-stick qualities, I prefer silicone to metal tongs as they are gentler on the food when to-ing and fro-ing from and around the pan. These have nice long handles too so that you don't burn your hand on the egde of the pan.

30cm long

Random colours but please state if you would particularly like red, blue or black.
