It is very difficult to control the tongs. It is not a good purchase or investment. Throw it into the trash bin. No eye see. Locking tongs is difficult to use and control. Not recommended. But, it is free will you buy it regret will be too late.

They do exactley what they are described as. When locked they do not pinch tight together, but the ends do close right to touching when under hand closing.

HASH(0xa348c48c) out of 5 stars Great Tongs Oct. 12 2009
By Max Remley - Published on Amazon.com
Color: Silver Verified Purchase
I needed a pair of tongs that wouldn't slip from wet or greasy hands. This product is great. Strong stainless steel with rubber inserts to help with the grip. I have a long pair too - that are perfect for working with outdoor grilling and smoking. These are the shorter ones and are just right for working with stove top cooking and serving. Oxo makes similar ones but I like these slightly better.

HASH(0xa348c6d8) out of 5 stars Better than Grocery store tongs, but not as good as real pro grade Dec 6 2012
By B. Christensen - Published on Amazon.com
Color: Silver Verified Purchase
After using nothing but Edlund commercial tongs for years, I thought I would give these a try based on all the positive reviews. Yes, they are indeed miles ahead of most of the junk tongs that people have in their kitchen, but still fall far short of the real commercial grade tongs in terms of both construction and performance. The most striking difference can be seen in the photo that I uploaded. You can see that on the Edlund tongs, the tips are parallel throughout the "working area" of the tong, whereas the progressive tongs only touch at the very tips. This means that manipulating food, tossing a salad, etc with the Progressive tongs is a bit like doing it with a giant pair of tweezers. In contrast, the Edlund tongs feel like and extension of your hand and can be used to toss salads, flip burgers, or manipulate items in a sautee pan with confidence and without piercing the skin of delicate items. My advice - spend the extra money and buy the Edlund tongs - they last for many many years.

HASH(0xa348c69c) out of 5 stars I own one in every size! March 16 2011
By The Resident Gourmet - Published on Amazon.com

I was looking for some quality tongs that used the traditional design found in restaurant services all over the world, and these Progressive International Locking Tongs are the perfect choice!

I first purchased the 12" version to see how they worked and was so impressed with the quality and the feel, I ordered one in every other size they offer as well! The short 9" is great for serving salad, the 12" can be used both during cooking or as a serving tool and the 16" is perfect for Wok cooking under high heat or when frying on a stove top. Plenty long enough to keep your hands away from any grease/oil splatter, but still give you full sturdy control over your food! I like the 16" so much for this purpose that I have stopped using most of my traditional Wok tools and just use my trusty tongs instead!

The black plastic handle guards do a good job of keeping any radiant heat off my hands when using these on the grill. I even use the 16 inchers to move hot coals and smoking wood around in my Weber smoker! The locking system is great and I have no problem with the way it works. PULL OUT on the RING to lock and PUSH IN to UNLOCK. You can lock and unlock these one handed with your hands full using this simple but effective locking system.

These tongs are a MUST HAVE for any serious home chef!

Tongs work great, good quality. Lock is stainless, so it should last a while. Previous tongs had a plastic lock that wore out over a couple of years and don't lock anymore.
