Maintaining Tongs
- Jan 10, 2018 -

It doesn't take much to keep your tongs in good working order. During a shift, they should be treated like knives: wiped down frequently and sanitized as necessary. You don't want greasy tongs — they're more likely to slip out of your hand.

"If you buy a good-quality stainless steel tong, they can be run through a dishwasher with ease," says Horst. Review manufacturers' care instructions carefully, and learn your area's food service regulations to make sure you care for tongs and other cooking utensils appropriately.

Armed with this information, you're ready to select the best tongs to add to your inventory of must-have kitchen utensils.
