I purchased these tongs because I like R?sle products and these look great and are nice and heavy.
After a year of use I felt the need to write this review.
The tongs will not stay shut and pop open at the worst possible times. I continued to try and use them over and over and was aggravated every time. The final straw was when they popped open on my counter and shattered a glass container full of marinate spilling it all over my counter, (along with tiny little bits of glass).
While they look great they did not function correctly for me.
Better locking tongs can be had at a much lower price. Because of this I can not recommend this product.
To lock the tongs for storage, turn them tong side up, and close them. They will stay locked close for storage in a drawer or utensil caddy (or to save space while you're cooking). To open, hold them tong side down, grip to close, and then release. Voila, your tongs automatically open!
I've had this, and the Rosle silicone-tipped tongs for years, and both work great. Kids and grown-ups alike will appreciate the ""magic,"" and these are far more durable and substantial (and yes, pretty) than other tongs out there, making them a great value as well
