Tongs for Reaching: Kitchen Tip

Kitchen Tip Button

A couple of months ago I posted a kitchen tip about using tongs for serving food.  Several of you commented that you use tongs for reaching items that are too high for you to reach normally.

I never thought of that idea before, and I have really enjoyed using the tip.  Now instead of getting a chair or stool or calling someone who is taller than me to reach something on a top shelf, I simply pull out my OXO 12-Inch Tongs and get it for myself.  It works beautifully!

Thank you to those of you who commented.

If you have a kitchen tip to share, send me an email.

    HAHA! I come from a long line of women who are less than 5 feet tall. I was blessed to make it just past 5 foot! I married a man who is over 6 feet tall, so we still use the top shelf in our kitchen. When I need something that isn’t particularly heavy, I use the longest soup ladle to pull it off the shelf. I get a lot of looks from the in-laws, but hey…it works!

  2. That is fantastic! My daughter has a little step stool, so I am frequently using that to get those out of reach items.

If you have a question about a recipe (especially substitutions and nutritional information), please read my FAQ page before asking the question in a comment.
