The BoomerzBest Heavy Duty Silicone Tongs are a very nice two pack set of tongs. The tong set comes with a 12" and a 9" pair of tongs. Both are made with a great quality stainless steel that won't bend on the handle. The stainless steel under the silicone covering the tips of the tongs does bend and is flexible. It's thick enough that it doesn't break with bending.

The tongs are easy to store with the pull ring lock. Pushing the lock in allows the tongs to open and be used. The tongs open less than a 45 degree angle. It's enough space to pick up large items, yet keep excellent control and grip on the tongs. To lock the tongs closed, simply pull out the ring lock. Having the tongs locked closed can also be used to hang up and dry towels or washcloths if needed. 

The handles have a silicone piece on both sides. There's a slight indent for one's thumb and index finger. It makes for a ergonomic grip that's comfortable to hold and use. 

The product description states that there are no removable parts where bacteria can grow. That part of the description is not true because the silicone tips can be removed. If the silicone tips are pressed down all the way, there shouldn't be enough room for bacteria to get in between and grow. If the silicone tips are pulled off slightly and then slid back on with food getting stuck to the stainless steel underneath the silicone during the cooking process, bacteria could grow. There's not a lot of room between the stainless steel and the silicone, so bacteria shouldn't get in between with normal or basic usage. If there is ever a concern or if you're dealing with really messy food, you can slide the silicone cover off the tips to clean the tongs in all areas. 
The silicone on the handles can also come off. There's little tabs that the silicone goes into to connect the stainless steel handle and the silicone pieces. If the tongs get dropped into really messy food, such as BBQ, where sauce or food gets onto the handle, the silicone can be removed to ensure that all parts of the tongs are clean and no food got underneath. 

These tongs are easy to wash by using soap and water or by placing them into the dishwasher. They are dishwasher safe.
