Tongeeze is a versatile hand-held kitchen tool that you can use to flip, grip, and/or scoop up virtually any piece of food. You can also use this tool to transfer the food to dishes or plates for serving, and any excess water, grease or fat on the food can be drained through the small drainage holes. Each Tongeeze tool has a non-stick surface, so even if you're working with a gooey or slippery food, it's unlikely that you'll drop a morsel.
The cost of Tongeeze is $14.99 plus $6.99 shipping, for a total price of $21.98.
Each of these tools consists of a double-sided handle attached to a perforated (meaning that it contains small holes) cradle. When you squeeze the two sides of the handle together with one hand, while hanging onto the red gripper pads, you'll be able to pick up any piece of food. The cradle will support the food as you flip it or move it, and meanwhile, excess fat, grease or water will drain through its perforations (holes). As long as you keep pressing both sides of the handle together, any food within the cradle will stay put in there.
The cradle of each Tongeeze tool is red, while the handle of each is red and light brown, so if you have any red copper cookware, it'll match those pieces well.
These tools are of a moderate size, which means that they're compact enough to fit in a kitchen drawer, but have a generous enough cradle to pick up a hamburger or chicken burger.
Each Tongeeze tool's cradle also has a non-stick surface, which will come in handy when you're dealing with melted cheese that commonly gets stuck to cooking tools. However, the cradle's surface isn't slippery, so the tool will hang on securely to almost anything you pick up on it.
When you're done with this tool, for the time being, you can safely clean it in the dishwasher, so you won't need to worry about hand-washing it. You probably won't even have to rinse it off before putting it in there, as its non-stick surface will prevent food bits from sticking to it.
Since one of these tools will pick up almost any food item, from pancakes to individual peas, you'll likely find a use for yours at every meal. Besides picking up food items, it'll also pick up small eating and drinking utensils such as straws or plastic forks. If you use this gripper, flipper, and scooper at each meal, you may find that aside from your eating utensils, you only end up washing one kitchen tool at the end of the day.
This cooking tool doesn't have any sharp parts and isn't operated by batteries or electricity, so it's safe for kids to use with supervision. Keep in mind, though, that it may take at least a few minutes for a child, especially a young one, to get the hang of squeezing both sides of the handle together.
If a cooking session in your kitchen often ends with bits of food and small puddles of water on the floor, one of these tools may help reduce your mess. It'll prevent you from dropping food when moving it from place to place, so little (if any) food will end up on the floor. Plus, it'll allow you to grip and move food in hot or cold water without causing a splash, so you may end up with absolutely no water to clean up, either.
Due to the fact that its perforated holes will drain fat and grease from any food you grip with it, this kitchen tool will cause your meals to be healthier than they would be otherwise. You and/or members of your household might even start losing weight, or at least body fat after you start using it.
While some kitchen tools contain padding, the red grip pads on each Tongeeze don't appear to be padded, so you may find it uncomfortable to use this tool for more than a few consecutive minutes.
Along the same lines, this kitchen tool may not be good for people with arthritis or any other physical issue that makes their hands stiff and/or sore. Using the tool for an extended period of time may end up making their issues with pain and stiffness worse. Therefore, although not all seniors suffer from arthritis, it shouldn't be deemed an ideal tool for that age group in general.
Since your Tongeeze will do the job of so many different kitchen tools, you may be able to get rid of some old ones without replacing them. Instead of obtaining a bunch of different flippers and sets of tongs for different foods, this one tool might be all you need.
If you're using this tool to work with a variety of foods, and you don't want flavor transferred from one food to another, just give the tool's cradle a rinse-off each time you switch foods.
While using your Tongeeze, make sure that you don't put your fingers near the joint at the bottom of the device, and remind any children who are using the tool not to do so. Otherwise, someone's fingers may get pinched, and the pinch won't be a super-gentle one.
