Product of the week - Wooden tongs

Sometimes it is the small things in life that make the biggest difference. And this is a case in point. For the past 18 months we have been struggling with our toaster. It doesn't raise up the toast sufficiently to enable the bread to be removed without burning several fingers. I had resorted to just tipping the toaster upside down and hitting it, hoping the toast will land on the plate. That is until we discovered wooden tongs! Ahh yes, I said it was the simple things. $6 at Williams Sonoma and no more burnt thumbs. It even has a magnet on the back so that it can conveniently stick to the fridge. Thank you, thank you!

wouldnt you just be able to stick them to the toaster??

they don't sit nicely on the toaster as the handle is too heavy (so it drags on the countertop)

Also I can put them high enough on the fridge, which is next to the toaster, so that 2 year old hands can't reach them.
