99% of our staff own OXO tongs.

Tongs are one of the most basic and important tools you can have in your kitchen. A good pair makes lots of tasks—such as flipping vegetables and removing meats from braising liquids—simpler and safer. (They also help you grab items from high shelves and juice citrus—more on that later). This 3-piece set of 9", 12", and 16" tongs will have you covered for the widest range of tasks, from the smallest lifting jobs to maneuvering full racks of ribs on and off the grill.

The shorter version of our favorite 12-inch tongs, this model easily picked up foods of all shapes and sizes—from dainty blueberries to a hefty jar of salsa—and was extremely comfortable to operate. The uncoated, scalloped stainless-steel tips allowed for a precise grip, making it especially easy to lift and arrange thinly sliced fruit, and the tongs' locking mechanism was smooth and intuitive.

The scalloped, uncoated pincers on our longtime favorite tongs felt very precise. This model was also comfortable to use, not only because of the silicone-padded handle but also because the tension didn’t strain our hands or wrists. These tongs struggled a bit when we used them to transfer ramekins, as the uncoated pincers didn’t securely grip the ceramic, but this is a less common use, and the tongs excelled at every other task.

Our former winner took top marks again, with just the right combination of light but tough construction, precise pincers that stayed aligned throughout testing and could pick up the tiniest toothpick or hoist the heftiest slab of ribs, and an easy locking tab that opened and closed simply and smoothly. At 16 inches, they are just long enough to keep your hands safe from the heat but short enough to allow for great leverage and control. The tension of the arms is well calibrated to be springy but not hand-straining over the course of cooking, such as when we grilled a big batch of barbecue chicken.
