The grated side of the tongs has nothing solid in it at all, so it flexes... a lot, which leads to a severe loss in its ability to pick things up.
Once grease is involved, it becomes almost impossible to pick up even the smallest lightest things. Even grilled hot dogs caused the all silicone to flex enough that lifting them off the grill became a chore of trying to get the hot dog onto the solid tong, and twisting it around.
The grated grip is great in concept, but poorly executed in silicone.
All that being said, the pinching action and lock both work well, and it's very easy to clean.
These tongs from OXO have a great combination/intersection of form/function/value/ergonomic
