Crucible tongs function is widely found in a science laboratory equipment or industrial equipment to handle a hot crucible, evaporating dishes, flasks, small beakers or other items which have a high temperature or contain potentially dangerous materials which cannot be touched with bare hands. In short, they are safety devices that give protection against chemical burns.


Crucible tongs typically look like a scissor. However, the two sharp blades that regular scissors have to get replaced with two princers or metal pieces with the tips forked out or serrated. The tips are available in several lengths as per the requirement of use. They are usually made from durable metal such as brass, steel, stainless steel, nickel-plated steel, cadmium-plated steel and even platinum. They have insulated grips for a firm and safe handling.
