Do You Make This Common Kitchen Tool Mistake?

I’ve been cooking for over 30 years and I feel like an idiot admitting this, but WHO KNEW (um, not me) that the appropriate length tongs make all the difference? (You probably knew this, right?)

A little backstory: Garry’s parents are downsizing and in the purging process much of the kitchen stuff was offered for the kids to take, if they wanted.

I took (among other things) the small tongs. After I got them home, I wondered if I’d ever use them – cause they are 7″ small – while my go-to tongs are the big 12″ ones.

Funny thing happened after I used them for the first time – I realized I had been making my cooking life harder by always using the big ones AND I will go as far as saying they are now my favorite tongs.

What was I thinking?

Ever heard of the saying: Use the right tool for the job?

Well, all these years I was making the mistake of using the wrong GIANT tool for most of the SMALL jobs.

Not anymore, baby!

I love these.

right tool for the job, especially in kitchen. just not sure how short tongs are more the right tool than long ones. What are the shorties particularly good for?

I use the shorties for flipping tortillas on an open flame and for flipping smaller items that the large ones overpower.
