Even on non-stick cookware and enamel?

If you have these, make sure you pull off the tips from the stainless steel and wash thoroughly.... it gets real nasty in there....

Bought a set similar to these from Costco a while back. Not impressed. The silicon tips reduces grip and the food can slip away. I just kept using the metal ones. For non-stick cookware, I use wood tongs.

If you can't pick up an item with a pair of tongs without touching the pan, you need to work on your manual dexterity.

That's just not true. Professional kitchens do not use them due to durability issues, but any pro cook will have at least 1 at home because it makes life easier for simple dishes.
