OXO Good Grip 9" Stainless Steel Tongs

When using the UPAN, turning the sausages to just the right position is essential. With the U-shaped channels being the width of the sausage you need to have the right tongs for the job.

We highly recommend the OXO Good Grip 9” Stainless Steel Tongs. These are made from 19 gauge brushed stainless steel, have stainless springs and rivets and are of a sturdy construction. The pull tab locking means easy opening and closing when you need it. 

Their design will give you complete control when turning the sausages and the stainless heads will withstand hot elements and burners as well as being dishwasher safe.

The 19 gauge stainless steel is thick enough not to cut the sausage skins meaning no split skins, keeping all the juices and flavour inside the sausage.

The OXO Good Grip 9" tongs will provide a lifetime of use and we consider them the best tongs on the market, using these tongs along with the UPAN will ensure you get the best results, we highly recommend them for use with the UPAN 

  • 19 Gauge (0.96mm) all stainless construction including springs and rivets
  • Non slip handle grips (GoodGrip)
  • Pull tab locking
  • Dishwasher safe

    How long does it take to cook the sausages?

    The UPAN takes between 9-10 minutes to cook the sausages fully once preheated. Watch our video comparing the different results between the UPAN and a traditional cast iron skillet here  Pan vs UPAN

    What is a seasoned cast iron coating and what happens if it gets damaged?

    The seasoned finish on the UPAN is 100% flaxseed oil that is been heated to 800c. This bonds it to the cast iron to form a natural non-stick coating free off PFAS (poly-fluoroalkyl substances).

    Can you use cast iron on an induction hob ?

    • Solid electric hobs
    • Radiant ring elements
    • Gas burners
    • Ceramic cooktops
    Its single piece cast iron construction means it can also be used
    • In an oven
    • On a bbq
    • Over an open fire

    Check out the UPAN being used on a gas element then straight into the oven when making Toad in the Hole

      Are the UPAN packaging and shipping cartons recyclable?

      All our packaging is brown paper based and the shipping cartons are made specifically for the UPAN to minimise waste
      Apart from cooking sausages what else can you use the UPAN for ?
      The design of the UPAN concentrates the heat to a central point, which makes it ideal for cooking bacon and the curved surface will allow you to sear meatballs evenly all the way around. Watch our two videos on cooking Crispy Bacon and Meatballs
