Hands are the most efficient tools for picking things up, turning them over and setting them down but they have one great disadvantage- they are not heat resistant.  This is what makes tongs like these, designed to deal with food as it cooks, so useful.  

These hinged tools with blunt ends are useful for picking up pieces of food without piercing them, tossing salads and many other jobs.  

Some have a spring in the hinge and may include a locking device that keeps them closed for storage.  When buying tongs, look for durable stainless-steel tongs with tips that meet precisely.
