But these tweezers have proven handy for plenty more kitchen tasks. They're excellent at snagging broken bits of egg shell and recovering measuring spoons that fall down the garbage disposal. When ingredients jump from the pan while cooking, I use the tweezers to grab them from under the burner before they have time to incinerate. I also use them when taking food photographs to move small pieces of food without disturbing the rest of the plate.
These tweezers get washed right along with the rest of my dishes and have their own spot in my kitchen drawer. A surprising addition, to be sure, but definitely a keeper.
