These tongs are well made and will definitely protect your expensive non-stick surfaces. However they do not open up as shown in the picture. Not sure if this is a manufacture design flaw, but this will definitely limit what you can use these tongs.
Overall I like these tongs, but the mechanism at the top to lock or unlock them is hard to work. This can be a bit of an annoyance especially when you grab them while in the middle of cooking something. Otherwise the quality is good and nice to have non-stick tongs.
While the handle is quite comfortable I do not like the design of the 4 rolled edeges which detracts from ease of clean-up. While these factors are not significant, if you use a dishwaher or a small brush when handwashing, I do not like the locking device of the spring mechanism. I do not find it efficient to 'need' to use two hand to open my tongs. When I grab for tongs with one hand, I want to use them, not have to use my other hand to unlock them first. I guess I am just used to my OXO tongs. I can grab my Oxo tongs with one hand, tap the locking end against anything to open them, an go! I think the OXO brand is superior to CALPHALON and just a bit longer, as well as less expensive.
