Works well. I prefer it over my other silicone tongs.

I have a kitchen stocked with Calphalon products that I love. So, I was surprised by the tongs. I use tongs to cut chicken while it's being sauteed. The grip on these tongs was not sufficient enough to hold the chicken breast while it was being cut with poultry scissors. I had to resort to an old Faberware product that I paid $5 for. I'm sure this will work well for lighter food, such as pasta or smaller cuts of meat.

I got this for my husband who believes he is an Iron Chef...maybe teflon. The tongs are easy to work . and very handy

This is a lightweight tong with a good locking feature. I would definately buy again.

These tongs are too flimsy. When you pick something up, the middle part (where you squeeze) touches the other side. Aside from that, the locking mechanism works great. Just don't use them for anything heavier than a strip of bacon.

They work very well but one needs to be careful when lifting something that is heavy or slippery because the grooves are not tall enough to get a sturdy grip.

Calphalon makes nice utensils, & this is no exception. The tongs actually worked better than expected, very sturdy. There is also a locking mechanism at the tip of the handle, a simple twist locks them closed for easy storage.

Great set of tongs! But....
I requested these tongs specifically after my cheaper, over used, over washed tongs rusted out and scratched my pans. I bought them because Calphalon is a name I have heard of and l I have found that with cookware, down to the smallest gadgets, you get what you pay for.
My fiance got me these for Christmas at my request. They are definitely great! I can shove, push, pull, lift, scrape, flip and maneuver and do not have to worry about scratching teflon surfaces but...
There is one design flaw. The base opens to allow for expansion. As the tongs expand and open, the space between base and utensil closes, sometimes pinching the skin. Once I caught my sleeve. But I have pinched my skin a couple of times: once pulling it out of dishwasher and once cooking -- the side of my palm caught where the base opens. Ouch!!
