Tongs can be used for all kinds of things. You can use them when cooking to turn foods. They are great for hot dogs, sausage, chicken, and steak. You can use them to pick up hot corn on the cob. You can use them in salads. I have recently learned to love using tongs for serving vegetables.
So many times vegetables just can’t be served well with a fork or spoon. A fork is slow, picking up one piece at a time, and spoon doesn’t hold the vegetables well. A pair of tongs can do a much better job.
For example, look how well these tongs pick up asparagus spears.
If you don’t use tongs for serving vegetables, you should give it a try.
