I was at the Williams-Sonoma store in Chelsea yesterday. The chef wanna-be, that I am had a good time browsing through all the kitchen gadgets on the shelves. I never fail to bring home a good find whenever I go to this store. In fact, I’m a Williams-Sonoma store fan, I just love the selection they have in-store and even online.
I found this amazing Locking Tong from ROSLE.
I have several tongs at home, but being that I’m lazy, I have to have a lot, as I only run the dishwasher when it’s full. I’m amazed at this piece as the mechanism is different from the locking tongs that I have. The All-Clad stainless tongs, which I have in both sizes are sturdy, but aside from the fact that I fond them too heavy for me, the locking mechanism can be too cumbersome to lock and unlock at times. With this ROSLE tong, you can open the tong by holding it, tips facing downward; and lock tongs by holding it, tips facing upward applying light pressure. Isn’t this easy?
Once you try this one, you’ll never want to have any other locking tong again. It comes in two sizes. I just love it, I bought three of these at $24 each, now I have 10 tongs in my kitchen.
