Kitchen Tongs and Turners
Kitchen tongs and turners all too often get overlooked, yet they’re some of the most important items in your kitchen utensils arsenal.
If you’ve ever struggled to turn sizzling meat in a pan with whatever cutlery is at hand only to get spattered in burning fat. If you’ve ever destroyed a perfectly cooked omelette by trying to slide it out of the pan straight onto your plate. If you’ve ever stuck a knife into a toaster, you need to get your hands on a set of quality kitchen utensils.
Food tongs, tuners, paddles and skimmers keep you safe in the kitchen, let you handle whatever you’re frying, roasting or poaching with skill and care and open up new ways of cooking. You’ll find a fantastic range of cooking tongs, turners and other kitchen utensils available at Lakeland to satisfy your kitchen needs, from spatulas to silicone-tipped tongs, from wok utensils to teppanyaki paddles.
To fry to perfection, you need the right tools. A good turner and a set of tongs lets you stand at a distance to stay safe from spattering fat. But more than that, the right kitchen equipment lets you handle what you’re cooking with care and aplomb, and frees you to focus on cooking without fumbling with and damaging your food. To do justice to your steak, your shrimps or your vegetable pakoras, you need to use the right kitchen tools.
Silicone cooking tongs and turners
More and more people are incorporating silicone into their kitchens, and for good reason. Silicone is something of a wonder material. It’s soft and gentle but also durable and resistant to heat at high, kitchen temperatures. Silicone kitchen utensils – like silicone turners, silicone tongs and silicone-tipped tongs – are non-stick and let you handle food with a delicate touch. They also won’t scratch the pots and pans you’re cooking in.
No more knives in toasters
Most of us have perilously dipped knives into hot toasters, and you don’t need us to tell you it’s a bad idea. Even if the toaster is disconnected from the mains (never put anything metal into a toaster that’s still plugged in!) often all you end up doing is shredding the bread and filling your toaster with pesky crumbs.
If your toast does get stuck, reach for a pair of wooden tongs instead, like these Magnetic Wooden Toast Tongs. Wooden tongs are slender enough to squeeze into the tightest of toasters to carefully extract your bread. Made from soft wood, like bamboo, they won’t tear your toast into a shower of crumbs either.
Take your cooking outdoors
Our food tongs and kitchen utensils are made to a high standard and can take the heat. They’re perfectly suited to life in the kitchen but they’re also ideal for taking outdoors. Our tongs, turners and slices are great for cooking over barbecues or for taking on camping trips too.
