How often do you use tongs when you cook? Tongs are one of the more underestimated cooking utensils. The thought of them may bring back high school cafeteria flashbacks, but tongs are actually great for a variety of uses. Use them for outdoor grilling and turning pan-fried meats and fish. Restaurant-style stainless tongs are a wonderful way to turning greens as they cook, serve long pasta with sauce, or even toss salads. Try to find tongs with self-locking devices so they will stay closed when stored.
