Tongs with scissor action and tapered ends are ideal for handling rounded foods such as corn or shellfish, turning foods as they marinate or fry, and giving salads and other mixtures a good tossing. Look for stainless-steel spring-hinged restaurant tongs for turning meats and poultry on the grill, in a pan, or under the broiler. Wooden tongs are used to turn large ingredients as they cook in a wok or to toss noodles neatly.
