The best rubber tongs for cooking can make all the difference. They should be comfortable to hold and grip food securely. The scalloped edges on the best tongs won a Cook’s Illustrated test, and they should also be comfortable in your hands. They should also have a locking mechanism that’s easy to set and remove.
Tongs with the right size and shape are essential for any cook. The tongs, for example, have a 7-and-a-half-inch opening. But their scalloped head isn’t the widest, and the rubber grip pads aren’t exceptionally comfortable for large hands.
