Vivree Kitchen Tongs Set - Salad & Grill Stainless Steel Serving Tongs with Silicone Tips Review #kitchentongs


Over the past few years, companies have been using silicon more, especially when it comes to kitchen items. What makes silicon special is that it won't melt when it comes in contact with high heat, it's easy to clean and it lasts a very long time. I currently own a few kitchen items that are silicon or have silicon on them and honestly, I'd have to say that they are my favorite pieces to use in the kitchen. My most recent addition to my silicon collection is the Vivree Kitchen Tongs Set.
Details: 
  • Vivree Kitchen Tongs Set - Salad and Grill Stainless Steel Serving Tongs with Silicone Tips have heat-resistant silicone heads that won't scratch nonstick cookware. An innovative automatic locking mechanism allows for easy one-handed use. Crafted of heavy-gauge stainless steel with silicone tips and silicone grips - 1-1/2 inches wide with scalloped edges, these provide a firmer grip so you don't drop anything, making them essential for anything that can't be easily removed from a pot, pan or the grill with either a spatula or spoon. Heat resistant to 480°F so they won't melt or char as you cook. This means your food will always be free from plastic smell or taste from your turner tongs. Scalloped heads handle foods delicately without piercing them. Firm spring action provides exceptional control, so you can pick up one pea or flip a 2-lb. Steak. Perfect for pots and pans that are Non-Stick coated, which means being very careful when using metal tongs as you don't want to scratch the surface. These tongs have a grip-able surface and they don't slip out of your hand even if they are greasy. Locking handles for compact storage - Automatic lock opens when you point the tongs down and give them a little squeeze, and closes when they're pointed up so they're easy to handle ans store in your drawer or hanging on the wall. "Dishwasher safe" makes clean-up much easier.

I don't know how many kitchen tongs I have replaced in the past because of something so small. I've had tongs that didn't grip onto the food, some wouldn't close or open and then there was one set that broke on me while I was using it. How that happened is still a mystery to me. I guess you can say I have bad luck when it comes to buying certain kitchen items or maybe it's because I shop cheap and that's another reason why things don't last. These tongs right here from Vivree are personally my favorite tongs to use. 

The tongs I had before these were just metal and trying to grab food is a pain! I don't know how many times things have slipped off the darn tongs and then ended up on the floor... I ended up wasting a lot of food because of that. Not just that, but when those cheap tongs came in contact with heat for a period of time, they would get to hot to even touch. I've ended up burning myself numerous times because of that. And the reason why that happened was because they didn't have any grips on the side preventing you from getting burned. It was all metal! Can you say lesson learned? Lol.

With the Vivree kitchen tongs, they do an amazing job in the kitchen. I haven't had any jumpers as I was grabbing the food and that save us from throwing anything in the trash. The silicon grips onto the food whether it's oily, dry or wet. Plus, when the tongs come into contact with heat, all the heat is absorbed in the silicon and it doesn't travel. So you can leave the tongs sitting on the stove top as it gets hot and they are going to be cool when you pick them up. Surprisingly they are also quite comfortable as well. The silicone grips on the side make them not only easier to grab, but they had that extra non slip cushion as you grip onto the tongs.

So far, since I've been using them, I'd have to say that these are worth it. They are comfortable, they grip into the food without anything falling, they can handle the heat from the grill and whatever else you'd use them for. They are also very easy to clean regardless of how messy the dish may be.
