Getting Started With Your Meat Claws

One of the most useful tools in your kitchen, especially if you’re a barbecue lover like we are, is Meat Claws! The Meat Claws can be used primarily for Shredding, Handling, and Carving delicious foods. The claws are very sharp, so handle with care – don’t store them in a drawer with the prongs pointed out.

When shredding meat, we recommend using one claw to stabilize the meat while scratching or pulling with the other claw. If you would like to shred into smaller chunks after your first pass, just rotate the meat and shred across the long strips.

The Meat Claws are a game changer when it comes to picking up and moving hot foods in the kitchen. You can easily pick any food out of the crock pot and you’ll never drop a large turkey or roast again because you were trying to handle it with oven mitts.  Meat claws have bigger surface area, so it’s not as dangerous to use them compared to forks. The 6 prongs and wide surface area make it carving easy and safe. We also recommend cleaning your meat claws after each use to prevent any bacteria buildup. They are safe for the top rack of the dishwasher.

To start you on the Meat Claws, let’s answer some frequently asked questions!

Can I use The Meat Claws On Larger Cuts Of Meat?

No job is too big for Cave Tools! We’ve used a single set of meat slaws to shred an entire rotisserie pig before. We’ve also had customers tell us they used the claws to pick up and move a 20lb brisket with no slippage.

Besides Making Pulled Pork, What Other Ways Can I Use My Meat Claws?

Meat Claws are incredibly useful in the kitchen. Once you start using them, you’ll be amazed at how practical they are and wonder how you ever got around the kitchen without them.

Is there Anything I Shouldn’t Do With My meat Claws?

Your meat claws are for food only, so please don’t place them in the fire or attempt to pick up hot charcoals with them. Also, if you’re a guy then there is a 90% chance that you will immediately pick up the claws and pretend you are Wolverine from the X-Men. It’s really fun, but remember that these are not toys and they should be handled with care just like any other sharp kitchen utensil.
