These tongs are a mixture of metal and red silicone.
The silicone on the handle makes them comfortable to hold – with no slip either..
The design shape and silicone on the tong end enables you to get a good grip on the food (have tried on cakes, chicken legs and salad) I sometimes find this is difficult with metal flat tongs.
There is a good width “mouth” on the open tongs.
I am happy with purchase.
