~ Thank you to Dreamfarm for providing product for my review. Opinions are 100% my own.~
Have you ever been cooking and thought of a cool gadget, or even just a tweak to an existing product, that would make your cooking experience so much more efficient and effective? No matter how wild you think that idea is, there’s a good chance you’re not the only one thinking about it.
In fact, Dreamfarm turns some of those ideas into a reality. I own a few different Dreamfarm products and they definitely get the most use out of everything I have to choose from in my kitchen. One such product from Dreamfarm are the Clongs.
Clongs are a unique kitchen utensil in that they (1) have a few different uses, (2) have a design that allows them to sit off the counter or stove top, and (3) implement a click-lock system.
Clongs have a V-shape just like tongs and can be used for grasping literally anything, just as tongs are. In my experience, most people use tongs for salads, but I use them for all kinds of stuff, and my Clongs for so much more.
Just a few days ago I was cooking stuffed peppers and Clongs were the perfect tool for grasping the peppers. The tips are made of silicone, so unlike metal tongs, they provide a much more gentle approach to grasping. In the case of my stuffed peppers, after boiling them for a bit they become fairly soft and brittle, so the gentle touch of Clongs helps prevent tears.
The silicone tip is also good because they’re scratch resistant. I can’t tell you how many non-stick pots and pans I’ve ruined from using metal kitchen utensils.
Aside from the silicone material of the tip, the tip design itself is something to note. The wavy waffle design makes Clongs great for serving all kinds of foods, and the flat tip makes picking up smaller foods a cinch. When I was making my stuffed peppers, I even used them to stir the rice and actually stuff the peppers.
So as far as use goes, Clongs are a great tool and are the only kitchen utensil I need to use to get my stuffed peppers from the stove to the table.
Unique Bend Design
One of my favorite features of Clongs is the bend design of the handles. When sitting Clongs on the counter or stove top, the curve in the handle keeps the tip off the actual surface. This prevents counter and stove tops from getting dirty and also keeps any germs off the tip.
The bend design also comes in handy to prop Clongs on the side of a pan. This means no more worrying about propped utensils sliding down the pan and splattering food all over the stove top.
Of course, I saved the best feature for last. Clongs have a click-lock system that makes it super easy to open and close, lock and unlock them with just one hand. Just like a clicky pen, the push of a click button on the end unlocks the Clongs. To close them, it’s the same thing. Just hold the handles together and push the click button. Easy peasy!
This is definitely time saving and much easier compared to tongs that require slipping a metal piece into position to lock and unlock. It’s such a pesky piece and quite frankly, I had removed the one that was on my metal tongs. I just left them in the open position all the time.
And I’m not going to lie. When I took my Clongs out of the box, I sat there and continuously pushed the click button to open and close them. It’s just as addicting as sitting at a desk and clicking a pen. I absolutely love this feature when cooking because I can open/close the Clongs with one hand, freeing up my other hand to hold the pan or do something else.
As soon as I experienced how much of a difference Clongs made in the kitchen and how easy they were to use, I immediately tossed my metal tongs!
