Q & As

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 14 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Really useful Product This was to replace a pair I had for years, just as good as the original 23 February 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by mostly poor Worked well initially, then fell apart on being washed up. I know they're a budget option but that's not acceptable! 17 December 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product I have needed these for a while, but somehow never purchased any. Finally I bought them and they have been really useful. Great value and good quality, and have about a million uses in the kitchen! 07 January 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Shame... It arrived bent... Not a great product at all and unusual for John Lewis. 13 February 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Don't buy Poor quality, arrived with splinters and broke first time I used. Very disappointed with this and John Lewis. 01 September 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by Total rubbish These broke as I pulled them from the packet. Total waste of money, even though they're cheap. 08 July 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Better than expected I am very pleased with the quality and size of the tongs considering the price. Will buy another pair when I next place an order with JL. 26 April 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by The sweetest tong. For the price, and being FSC regulated, these tongs are a sweet deal. Often finding that my fingers were being badly burnt when trying to remove steaks or sausages from a scorching hot pan, so with my purchase of these tongs I am finding that I am now only burning my fingers reaching into boiling water when retrieving a boiled egg, or pasta. Sturdily built and frankly, looking pretty funky on the side of my kitchen counter, people are often complementing me on my tongs. I mention that they're FSC approved and explain that this means that I am conscientious of the environment. In conclusion, well worth the price. My skin, from picking up scolding hot vegetables from 700 degree oil, is healing nicely. My confidence is at an all time high from the compliments people pay my tongs, and most importantly, I am able to afford nicer food because these tongs were cheap. Cheaper than a skin graft. Cheers Johny Lew. 07 March 2012
