Wooden Toast Tongs
Perfect size for moms and kids!
A friend lamented the fact that her 5 year old grandson might burn his fingers getting his toast out of the toaster. She said there are tongs you can buy, but where? I was so pleased to tell her that Vermont Country Store sold wooden toast tongs, and that I was putting together an order. I was pleased I could help my friend, and she was pleased with the tongs. A perfect Win-Win situation!!

Not using my fingers anymore
I had been wanting something to help get the toast out of the hot toaster for a long time, resorting to using an old wooden handled ice pick, I still didn't feel safe using a tool with a metal pick, in the toaster.
Then I saw the wooden tongs advertised in one of your catalogs, and ordered a pair.
I really like having a safe way to retrieve hot toast in the morning, and a bonus is the magnet located in the top, which can keep the tongs connected right to the toaster!

Can't live without these.
Our new puppy got ahold of our beloved Toaster Tongs and chewed them up. My family was lost without these as we waited for the new ones to arrive. It was amazing to see how creative we had to get to get our toast out of the toaster. The whole family was jumping for joy when the new ones arrived. We can't live without these.

These are half the size of the ones we bought a few years ago. Not big enough to grab much of anything. Everything gets smaller and less quality.

It's my hands that burn!
I got these more for removing toasted items from the toaster while they are still hot. I guess I am very sensitive to heat. These work beautifully; one just has to grip them low enough to make them bend in enough to grasp even thin toast. Of course it was the magnet that really sold me on the item and I love always having them exactly where needed.

Not just for Toast
I don't eat to much toast so I use these Tongs for picking up things that are in a secluded spot like under a desk or other tight spots.

Got new tongs...miss the old ones a little
The toast tongs are an essential tool in our house and the new ones replaced tongs we bought years and years ago while visiting the Weston store. I'm a bit sorry I tossed the old, cruddy ones out as the new ones are thicker and not as agile in the toaster slots. I had to trim the tip a bit on one side as it had rough wood, splinters really, still attached. The nice, new feature is the magnet. It helps give the tongs a place where they stay accessible and clean.

This product leaves something to be desired!
I have neuropathy in my hands and this product is too stiff & too pricey!
