A simple, yet elegant looking pair of tongs such as the Gourmet Settings Windermere Flat Tongs, is a great addition to your flatware collection. This pair of tongs is great for use in an ice bucket for your next cocktail party or in a serving dish on the table. Store the tongs with your formal flatware and use them only when you have a special occasion. You can also use them on a daily basis to let kids grab french fries and other food items to serve themselves. Customize the tongs with initials by engraving or etching them into the metal and turn a simple kitchen item into an heirloom to pass down through the generations. Make an impression with your flatware at the next family gathering.
