No, just no. Any serious chef / home cook will be extremely frustrated by this garbage tool because it is literally the worst of both possible worlds.
With this tool the tongs will get in the way when you need to flip something an will literally ruin your flip. Just imagine trying to turn an egg with this trash - you’ll end up running your eggs to the end of the spatula, hitting the tongs and destroying your eggs. If you need a spatula, just get a spatula.
The leverage you will have from the tongs on this piece of shit will only frustrate you because when you try to pick up a protein with them you won’t have equal leverage and it will fail. If you want tongs, just get tongs.
If all you want is something to flip and grab some chicken nuggets off the sheet pan, I guess this would work for you but you’d honestly be better off in that case just getting a proper set of tongs.
@RiotDemon I promise you that 12 inch tongs are more than long enough to keep your hand out of the flames of a backyard grill. Most grill cooks I know use 6-8 inch tongs for hundreds of orders and you won’t find a spatula anywhere near 18 inches at any grill station. The 12s mostly get used for prep when you’ve got the grill loaded with roasting peppers or similar. I’ve only busted out the 16s for fishing stuff like Lobster out of giant stock pots (because steam burns are no joke).
Picked this up last time, yeah they look like a hot mess but they work pretty well on the grill. Beats lugging around 4 different items to a tailgating party as well. I’m actually pretty happy with it.

Meh, not as good of a deal as it seems. Of course, the most expensive set on Amazon is chosen for the price comparison. Here, same Chinese crap, different name, half the price of the comparison item, and free 2-day shipping with Prime.
