Disposable tongs, used at home, by businesses, or by eating establishments, help individuals serve meals to families or cater events. The utensils, available in a selection of styles, colors, and lengths accommodate the diverse preferences of users. Staples® offers an inventory of disposable plastic tongs along with other throwaway cutlery such as forks, knives, and spoons.

Consider Uses of Disposable Tongs
Families use the items for serving food at picnics, weddings, and other events. Businesses such as restaurants have several available at buffet counters, condiment bars, and inside ice buckets. Mix together ingredients in salad bowls and stir fry pans or use the utensils to flip hamburgers and chicken breasts cooking on a grill. Protect your fingers from heat by using tongs to grab toast or pull out lobster, corn cobs, and potatoes from boiling water. In place of a step stool, use a longer pair of tongs to reach boxes and cans stored on tall kitchen shelves. Kids can use smaller ones in place of chopsticks when eating Chinese food. Some people use them to retrieve anything that falls behind a cabinet or the refrigerator.

Review Advantages of Disposable Tongs
The out-of-the box utensils are hygienic and ready to use immediately. After using once, toss them into the trash. This saves cleanup time after events and eliminates the need to wash the implements, decreasing water usage. Food stays germ-free when people use tongs to pick up items such as cherry tomatoes, croutons, and cheese cubes. Eco-friendly and sustainable examples, such as ones made from bamboo, are biodegradable and compostable. These convenient accessories are lightweight and require a minimal amount of storage space.

What Weights and Materials Are Available in Disposable Tongs?
People can purchase standard, heavy, and extra-heavy serving implements and disposable plates that do not easily bend, break or snap. Lighter tongs are useful for picking up appetizers and sides such as fruit pieces and pastries. Use heavier-weighted utensils to grasp chicken legs, bagels, and larger portions of servings from platters.

Manufacturers design the disposable utensils with textured surfaces that help when gripping small and large pieces of food. They use polypropylene, polystyrene, and other materials so the devices resist heat, water, and acids. Plasticizers make the product flexible to hold up regardless of the types of food served or grasped. Event hosts are at ease when their guests use the dependable serving tools.

What Buying Choices Are Available in Disposable Tongs?
Style selections include flat-grip designs for picking up rolls and serving salads. Diners can use scallop grip utensils to grab hors d'oeuvres and baked items from buffet lines or dining tables. Tongs are available in sizes measuring 4 to 12 inches to give people choices for matching tong lengths with food sizes. The product is available in black, green, clear, and other colors to match various decorating schemes and personal tastes.

How Do Manufacturers Package Disposable Tongs?
Consumers can choose smaller packs containing 20 or more items or buy the product in case sizes. These bulk packages may include 100, 200, or more items per box. Utensils may ship in self-storing, reclosable plastic bags or cardboard boxes.
