If, like me, you always burn your fingers trying to get those tricky cupcakes, waffles or little bits of hot toast out of the toaster, you might be interested in a pair of handmade toaster tongs designed and built by designer Dean Verhoeven. The tongs were made for three years.
Launched on Kickstarter this month, Dean is offering a chance to own one of the first 100 toaster tongs he has created, to be delivered later this year, well before Christmas 2022. Upfront contributions are now available for this rewarding project at a special price starting at around $200 or £200. 147 (depending on the current exchange rate).
“The design is simple: two pieces of bamboo, an elastic cord (responsible for the hinges and a spring) and a decorative glass enamel dot. They are processed with natural, food-safe oil rubbed by hand. These forceps are unlike others because their shaft is rotated 90° from the normal position. This improves their function in several ways, most notably their grip strength is independent of where along the length you hold them. With a regular pair of tongs, the grip decreases as the toasting mission gets deeper (as your grip gets closer to the back hinge of the tongs). This hinge reorientation is a noticeably welcome improvement. “

If Dean Verhoeven’s crowdfunding campaign successfully raises the required contribution target and the project progresses smoothly, worldwide delivery is expected to take place sometime in November 2022. To learn more about Dean Verhoeven’s toaster tongs project, watch the promotional video below.
“The tongs will sit comfortably on the countertop, but I will provide stainless steel hooks, either magnetic or screw-in, for patrons who would like to hang them next to the toaster. Enamel dots are also made and fired at home. No CNC machines (computer controlled). The one-minute video below shows some of the work done (most of the camerawork was done by my son Nick).”
