patiochef multi-tongs can:
1, hold food delicately. Sprung tongs are a permanent battle against spring pressure.
2, distance you from heat. Sprung tongs, for all their size, are held closer to the heat.
3, hold small objects with a greater ‘feel’ through the handles.
4, flip and move burgers easily, whereas sprung tongs are poorly shaped for this and are awkward in action.
5, scoop anything off a flat griddle, large or small.
3, last for ever. Sprung tongs constantly need pulling apart or the hinge weakens so eventually break.
