Handling delicate gold with tweezers and tongs for gold leaf
For years, busy chefs handled delicate gold leaf and silver leaf with tools adapted from their kitchen arsenal. Now we offer a selection of elegant and efficient tongs, brushes and shakers to make creative and precision placement easier. You can feel confident with the right tool in hand, whether you’re applying gold leaf solo in your kitchen, or tableside where guests will applaud your gold leaf artistry!
Which tongs should I get?
Straight tongs and offset tongs are designed for different tasks, choose one (or both!) so you’ll always have the right tool.
Straight Tongs for Gold Leaf
Straight Tongs quickly and smoothly pluck larger-sized flakes and filament directly from a jar or container. They are ideal for edible gold filament or the extra large edible gold leaf flakes.
Offset Tongs for Gold Leaf
Offset Tongs are perfect for tearing off smaller pieces from edible gold leaf or silver leaf and place them precisely where you wish. They are the perfect tool for edible gold leaf loose or silver leaf loose.
How to clean our tongs for gold leaf?
Both tongs can be easily cleaned with water and a drop of dish soap. Once they are completely dry, they are ready for use again.
