Q & As

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 17 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love these! Such a simple, inexpensive product but fantastically useful and seems well-made/durable. The tongs now live by the toaster and are used daily by all the family to pick out piping hot toast or small slices which don't pop up high enough to use fingers; and of course for those occasional small bits that break off and get stuck in the toaster. 13 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Simple kitchen technology and good value I bought these for my home to use as toaster tongs having previously tried a smaller pair found in a specialist kitchen shop which were frustrating to use. They do the job perfectly. I bought a second pair as a little extra family gift. 12 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just what I needed Looking for tongs, These were exactly what I was looking for. Easy to handle and clean. 07 October 2015
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
