Review and Giveaway: Pro Tongs by iSi North America


I am so excited about this review & giveaway! I do not own a proper pair of cooking tongs. I have these big old grill tongs and the old fashioned tongs where the chicken legs get caught in the end (lol), or I even just use a fork, but I don't have anything like these! I placed this in my counter top canister to sit with my spatulas and such. I'm not tossing this beauty in my utensil drawer to get lost! So check these out!

Designed with the professional chef in mind and now available to home cooks, Pro Tongs by iSi North America are a high quality, professional culinary tool. In the creation of Pro
Tongs, iSi took special care to ensure that this tool is uniquely efficient for preparing, cooking, grilling, serving, and handling ALL foods properly.

The 18/10 stainless steel Pro Tongs feature a work area with three different multifunctional edges – it’s like three tongs in one! The smoothly scalloped edge is gentle for handling delicate foods. A straight side allows for accurate control of small items and is great for precise tasks such as deboning fish fillets. The jagged edge ensures a firm grasp of foods that can be difficult to pick up, such as grilled vegetables.

Use these tongs to flip and turn steaks, chops, chicken, shellfish, veggies, sausages, burgers and even coals with these light-weight, easy to use, powerful tongs.



You can clean these in the dishwasher! The award winning Pro Tongs by iSi North America are the only locking tongs that can be completely disassembled to go into the dishwasher to be totally cleaned and sanitized, forever eliminating unseen food traps, as the first NSF Certified locking tongs.

And on top of all that these unique tongs also open up into two different positions – a narrow position for comfortable handling of smaller foods and a wide position to handle large quantities or bigger food items. The tongs lock into a closed position for compact storage and have a convenient hook for hanging. iSi Pro Tongs have a chrome-plated flexible spring and high performance fiberglass reinforced nylon lock.

Available in three different sizes, 9”, 12”, and 16”, Pro Tongs have a suggested retail price of $20, $25, and $30, respectively. These are available for purchase at their website or even at Amazon.





I was sent a 9" Pro Tongs for review, and I instantly fell in love with them right out of the box! They are a perfect light heavy weight, sturdy, easy to hold and use. I love the 3 locking clip settings, the multi use of the edges and most of all it's dishwasher safe! I am so excited about these, that I haven't even cooked with them yet and I'm already sharing them with you!

I use tongs for EVERYTHING! I use them just like spoons in the locked position, stirring, mixing, etc... I use them to toss salads and pasta. I used them to serve dishes. I love tongs!

Great giveaway! I don't have any tongs at the moment; I actually always borrow my sisters but when I do use them I use them for grilling and flipping pork chops over the stove. They're great to have. Hope I win! :)

We are carnivores at heart and are always cooking burgers, hotdogs, chicken, ribs, etc! Today we are cooking sausages, and could REALLY use the tongs right about now!!

I cook so many different things I'm not sure what I cook most. I use tongs most when I'm browning meat.

Now that it is warm I cook burgers the most (on the grill). I use tongs to turn them without (hopefully) getting burned!

I use tongs for corn on the cob - it is really hard to get them out of boiling water with anything else!
