Ice Tongs Maintenance and Cleaning
Ice tongs have been around for hundreds of years and can be traced back in the olden days to the Chinese, the Japanese and the Chinese Americans. Ice tongs are basically long metal handles that fit over a long wooden handle. These tongs have a flat top and are used to serve either hot or cold food items. There are different size versions of these handles and some can hold gallons of liquid and are used for cooking, freezing, stir-frying, for carving and other uses. They come in a variety of styles and sizes and are made from various materials such as stainless steel, cast iron, crystal and even bamboo.
They are versatile and are primarily used for food preparation, but are also sometimes used for other purposes. Some people use the flat top tongs for climbing on trees, carrying food and even for fishing. In some cultures, the ice tongs are called talons and they are used for climbing. The Chinese would use them for climbing and they were also used by the Indians to climb and to protect themselves from injury.
The Chinese used the ice tongs as part of their set of weapons and they could be used as sticks or as shields. In fact, the American Indians used the same tongs and used them as weapons as well. Some tribes believed that using these tongs would allow them to climb into the air and go far into the forest. Some tribes today still believe in that idea.
A modern day ice tongs is much different than the original version. Today, you will find them in a variety of colors and designs. They have become quite popular with people all over the world. Most of them are made of stainless steel. Many of the newer models are designed to resemble or at least mimic an ice bucket. They come in a variety of styles and there is sure to be one that is right for you.
There are some precautions that need to be taken when using the modern ice tongs. First, you must make sure that you never hold them around your mouth and try to avoid getting them stuck in your teeth. The tongs will be used to pull the ice out of your container. If you get your hands on the tongs and try to pull the ice out, it will cause the knife to break or the handle to become damaged. The last thing you want to do is damage the ice tongs. If the design of the handle breaks, there is no other way to open it safely.
Next, you should always clean your ice bucket before you store it. Never leave it sitting on a damp piece of cloth. It should be cleaned thoroughly by using a solution of warm water and mild soap. Never use any harsh cleaner as this could cause damage to the plastic components. Periodically, you should wipe the ice container dry after each use. You can wipe it with a paper towel, a folded towel, or a damp cloth.
Cleaning the ice tongs once a week should be sufficient as long as the material used is of good quality. It is best to wash the plastic components thoroughly if it is used frequently. It should also be washed with warm soapy water if it has been used for a long period of time.
