Features

  • You Get More Than One

    Your order will come with two large Clever Tongs. These can be used for just about anything. For smaller foods, you will also be provided with one small cooking tong. This could be used to flip pieces of bacon or grab hot dogs from the pan.

  • Heat Resistant

    This kitchen utensil is heat resistant up to 550 degrees so you never have to worry about burning the silicon material. Even better is that the handles always stay cool to the touch.

  • High Quality

    The silicon is actually made out of commercial kitchen quality materials making it both stovetop and oven safe for added convenience.

  • Non-stick

    This product is made out of non-stick silicon ensuring the food slides back into the pan or onto your plate when you need it to.

  • Dishwasher Safe

    The non-stick surface makes Clever Tongs very easy to clean - all you have to do is rinse them off. For an even better clean you can put them in the dishwasher.

How It Works

The secret behind Clever Tongs is the unique design that combines a spatula and a set of tongs. In between the tongs, there is a hammock designed piece of silicon. This added piece of silicon is thin enough to slip under food like a traditional spatula except it is flexible. The flexible design causes it to cradle the food instead of just lifting it. This makes the food easier to lift, flip, scoop and even serve.

Positive Aspects

  • Use it for Almost Anything

    This utensil can be used for just about anything. You can use it to gently flip your eggs without breaking the yolk. Use it to pick up chicken nuggets, french fries or scoop stir fry. You can easily lift asparagus out of boiling water or even use it to scoop ground beef and place it directly in your taco shell.

  • Mess Free

    The unique design makes this the perfect serving utensil because nothing will fall out. You can place food perfectly on the plate without it piling on top of each other. Since nothing ever falls you can stop worrying about dropping and wasting food.

  • Durable Yet Gentle

    The silicon hammock is extremely durable. During the infomercial, you are shown how Clever Tongs can securely lift up a whole pot roast. Although it is durable, it is also very gentle with your food and can easily grip and flip delicate fish filets.

Save Time

You can save yourself a lot of time by using Clever Tongs. First of all, you will no longer have to switch back and forth between a spatula, tongs and serving utensils because this product does it all. You will also save time doing the dishes because you will only have to wash this one utensil as opposed to three and it is easy to clean thanks to the non-stick surface. Finally, you will never have to worry about cleaning up spilled food because Clever Tongs lets you serve and handle your food with ease so it never falls.

Cons

  • Test Marketing

    As of right now, it seems that the Clever Tongs are being test marketed. This means that the product tends to ship slower than other items that you might order online. While it may take a while to get to you, give it some patience - it will get there!

  • Longevity

    While the silicon is great for making the product work, along with being non-stick, it may not be as durable as other kitchen utensils. Many kitchen utensils are made of metal or wood to be longer lasting. The silicon and flexible plastic may not be the best for a long-lasting product.

  • Cheaper Alternatives

    The Clever Tongs are a different iteration of spatula-tongs crossovers. As of right now, the As Seen on TV price, plus shipping, may be more expensive than what the product is worth. There are cheaper alternatives that can be found int he cooking section of many grocery stores that can get the same job done.

  • Width

    The Clever Tongs are pretty effective at flipping food of a certain width. If you're flipping small pieces of chicken, hamburgers, or other small-sized foods, you'll find the Clever Tongs very useful. However, if you need to flip something that's larger, like a steak of a piece of corn, you might not be able to use this device.

  • Double Offer

    While the Double Offer may seem great, it is a little too good to be true. When ordering the Clever Tongs, you don't get to opt out of the double offer. You'll be sent both of the Clever Tongs for the designated price of just one, but you'll have to pay shipping and handling on both products. This means that if you don't enjoy the product, or don't find it useful, then you'll have had to pay for extra tongs that you didn't ask for.

Alternatives

  • Grill Pro

    Clever Tongs is not the first spatula and tongs product out on the market. The Grill Pro is another product that does much of what the Clever Tongs does. The Grill Pro is designed like tongs, but one of the tongs is shaped like a spatula. This device is made entirely of metal rather than having silicon pieces and is easy to use and clean.

  • Grip n Flip

    This device is another As Seen on TV product that is meant to be a spatula and tongs creation to make cooking and maneuvering in the kitchen easier. Unlike the Grill Pro or the Clever Tongs, the Grip n Flip is actually durable plastic. One side of the tongs have a spatula, while the other have curved tongs. While not as durable, the Grip n Flip is a slightly cheaper alternative to many online knockoffs.

  • Spatula Tipped Tongs

    For some customers, the size of the tongs can be the thing that sends them looking for these alternatives. Rather than spending time waiting on an As Seen on TV product to ship, an easy alternative is spatula-tipped tongs. These are tongs that simply have spatula ends and can help with the issue of maneuverability in the kitchen and the ability to flip food easily.
