Fine Cooking calls this revolutionary grilling tool, "A cooking tool with a silly name and a seriously functional form." The sharp, spiral snare at the tip is cleverly designed to lightly pierce the edge of virtually any solid food for turning. A quick flip of the wrist and your food is turned to the other side. Use it for a rack of ribs, hot dogs, steaks or shrimp. It's also perfect for the kitchen as you turn bacon, baked potatoes or French toast. Never again will you have to wobble food on a spatula with this on hand! The set of two arrives in a solid wood box with brass fittings, a handsome case for storing.
My mom bought my dad, my husband and our son each one of these for Christmas. We bought this one for a good friend for his birthday. They all think this is a great grilling tool. They are all grilling enthusiasts which makes it great for the women in the family who aren't kitchen enthusiasts! We would highly recommend this product.
I didn't want both of these and saw no need for the wooden box (which isn't very nice), so thought it was a little overpriced, but I solved that problem by giving the long one to my son-in-law who BBQ's a lot. It actually works very well turning things over in the skillet. Suggestion: There is a little clear curved tube that protects the point. It is difficult to get back on and it's clear so I'd lose it in a day anyway. I use a wine cork and that works well
The pigtails are a great BBQ tool. I gave them as Christmas gifts and the presentation in the wood box was a nice touch.
This hook reminds me of a suture needle... a very large and sharp one. This product works well, but you just want to be very cautious using it as you could hurt someone easily.
I bought 2 of these as gifts & have heard nothing but good things about them. The smaller sized one has been great for indoor cooking too. And the gift box is worth the additional money to help in accident prevention since these are very sharp. The only improvement would have been if this site would have sold the left-handed version. I certainly would have bought one for myself too.
Pick it up with a twist, lay it down with a twist.
About the only thing you can not use it on are soft items like Hamburgers or fish.
Veggies - great.
Steaks - perfect.
Hot dogs, Sausages, etc - you bet.
Because it is so easy and quick to turn the food, I loose less heat. Meaning I cook faster.
I purchased one for my sisters B'day and she loves it.
Very neat tools! Great for a unique gift.
I purchased the Pig Tail flipper for my husband who does most of the grilling at our home. I tried it while cooking some steaks, and I was very surprised at how easy it was to use. I watched the video and tried the moves myself. The flipper grabbed the steaks and held on until I turned the steaks and twisted it off. Because there were 2 Pig Tail Flippers (large and small) I thought that I could use the smaller one for inside cooking. I liked the product very much.
I have had this kind of barbeque tool for years, and decided to get a set for my brother. He loves them! These are so easy to use, and clean up and storage are a snap. It is nice to have the two different sizes.
My brother was more excited about this than anything else he opened from me under the tree. A barbeque fanatic, this is a handy tool for the one who seems to have all the tricks and tools for the trade. Most people think of the basic grilling sets, but he was really excited about having this tool on hand.
The Pig tails are great. I tried it out while grilling Steaks and it worked very well. My only complaint would be the gift box. It was pretty shotty, i.e. the dividers were loose and so was the latch on the front. In addition to that the latch was mounted a bit crooked. These things didn't effect the performance of the product, I only make mention of it because someone might br hesitant to give this as a gift if they knew.
bought this as gift for my son. at first is was looked as "wow, thanks dad?", you know another one of those quirky gifts?
about a week later, received a phone call from him that this was the best thing ever, he uses it all the time,and it really is fun and easy to use. it is now requested as a gift for my other sons birthday.
I purchased two, one for my husband and on for my son. The gifts were perfect for them. They used them the same day and use everytime they BBQ.
Would recommend to anyone who BBQs. Flipper and case were excellent quality.
I bought the first set for my husband to use on the grill. I confiscated the smaller of the two right away for use in the kitchen. I cannot tell you how many kitchen forks I have bought all of which did not release the food easily. The pig tail food flipper even turns big roasts with no problem and the release is perfect. I have now bought three more sets to give as Christmas presents this year.
I always had problems flipping food with a standard spatula/flipper. All I seemed to do was push the food around the grill, griddle, or pan, before awkwardly getting the food to flip over. With the Original Pig Tail Food Flipper, turning food is a lot easier. At first, I was a little concerned that the business end of the pig tail would pierce my steaks and allow all the juices to run out, but that was not the case. The pig tail makes cooking a lot easier.
I LOVE the Pig Tail Food Flipper!! Bought several and gave them for Christmas presents and everyone LOVES them also. :)
The order arrived in excellent shape. The storage box is very nice and made of varnished wood. The construction and operation of the pig tail was as expected. The package came with a large and a small pigtail inside. I used the larger one to grill a porterhouse steak on my gas grill. It worked just like the commercial video with no hiccups. The only observation I will make is that this tool really only will work on solid pieces of meat - Steaks, chops, and perhaps chicken parts. It would certainly shred burgers or fish. Also, because it does not have a flat surface for scraping I fear it would make a mess of anything that stuck to the grill at all unless you had another flat tool to loosen it. I think I had realistic expectations of the Pig Tail and it performed as expected.
You could definately injure someone with these - the box is a nice touch, but they probably won't live in it for long.
Bought one for my husband who said he like it and one for my son-in-law.
I have to admit I was a bit skeptical-- but wow--- what a fantastic product. We were even able to turn venison burgers with them. And everyone was truely impressed by the ease with which they worked.
Bought a set for my son for Hannukah this year-- can't wait to give them to him.
