This is a great set of tongs. The ends are extra long so I can pick up larger items. They store easliy because the ring at the end pulls out and locks them closed, so they take up less room in the drawers. It also makes them easy to hand up. This set also comes with a bonus baster. You can fill it with oil or sauce and it has a build in brush so you don't have to keep dipping and basting. Great set for the money, and very nice looking.
