The Stando project is a result of my interest in updating the ubiquitous kitchen tongs — which often tears or breaks food and feels like cooking with two clumsy thumbs. We calibrated Stando to feel like a delicate extension of one’s fingers.
We ditched the bland and clinical look of tongs, and replaced it with a soft streamlined shape.
The namesake feature, a curved stand in the middle of the tool provides a wide surface area for finger placement and grip. The stand also keeps the tips elevated off the ground while not in use.
The curve has been strategically placed to lean on vessels like 1/9 pans, pint containers, bowls, pan handles - anything with a lip or corner, really.
If you think of tweezers as solely reserved for micro greens and delicate plating, I encourage you to give Stando a try as an every day tool.
Each piece is stamped, etched, and finished by hand at Mr. Ando’s workshop.
Stando combines the long tapered profile of Japanese cooking chopsticks with the tension and precision of plating tweezers. It is comfortable everywhere from turning small veg in a small pan, to handling noodles and grilling.
