There is a lot of hype out there about the Fusion Silicon Finger Tongs. Do you really need the Fusion Silicon Finger Tongs in your kitchen? Yes and no. If you do not cook at home, you obviously do not need them. If you already have metal tongs, you probably do not need them either. On the other hand, even if you already have metal tongs, the Fusion Silicon Finger Tongs seem to be more versatile and better designed.
As you can see, they have a wide surface area which means they can handle a wider variety of food items than regular tongs. They are also designed to fit your hand almost like a glove, but because they are made from a heat-resistant material, you can use them to handle a lot of hot foods and not get burned.
In short, the Fusion Silicon Finger Tongs seem to be perfect for handling steamed vegetables. As for flipping burgers, steaks or bacon on the grill or in a frying pan, I would still use metal tongs.
