Channel your inner grizzly bear with this shredding tool that acts like an extension of your arms. Lets you shred meats without getting burned or melting your tools. Better than using a traditional knife and fork to shred. Great for shredding all kinds of meat from turkey to beef. Dishwasher safe. Strong nylon construction. Ability to tear into a roast with simple efficiency, and lift roasts off whatever cooking device you're using. Can use to help transfer meat from the smoker or oven to a resting surface.

Best of all they’re 100% dishwasher safe and non-toxic. They also won’t melt on the grill.

The Original Bear Paws Shredder Claws comes with a lightweight design as the overall weight of these claws is just under 4.5ounces. It makes them comfortable to wear for an extended duration which is of the great essence for both amateurs as well as professional BBQ masters.
- The Best Meat Slicers
The most impressive design aspect of these meat claws has to be that amazing handle. There is plenty of room for the palm to rest on, and it actually feels like a claw handle instead of a textured plastic rod.
- Star Product Review
I never thought that I would say this, but I do not know what I would do without my Meat Shredders. They are very flexible for a variety of things in the kitchen other than shredding meat.
- Creative Keto Cook
You can use them to pull pork, shred chicken, lift turkey or toss a salad. Overall, this is a handy tool to have around your kitchen, especially if you are a barbecue fan.

What experts didn't like
Nylon may not last long. Blades could get dull fast depending how often they are used. Better for larger pieces of meat.

Not easy to use for the newbies

The tip tends to melt and bend

From The Manufacturer

Bear Paws are the original, must-have BBQ accessory. A longtime favorite of BBQ experts across the nation, Bear Paws are specially designed for lifting and shredding meat. Channel your inner grizzly with the only meat shredding tool that fits your hands perfectly, acting like an extension of your arms and allowing you to shred meat without getting burned or melting your tools. The super-sharp, meat-shredding “claws” are strategically spaced so meat won’t get stuck. Bear Paws offer a much better way to shred meat than the traditional knife and fork. Thanks to super-strong nylon construction, which is much harder and stronger than plastic, Bear Paws are heat-resistant up to 475 degrees, so you never have to worry about them melting from the heat of your meat. Bear Paws are BPA-free and FDA approved for safe food handling. Each Paw is made of a single piece of hard nylon, so there aren’t tiny pieces to disassemble and wash by hand. In fact, Bear Paws are dishwasher safe on the top rack, making for the easiest cleanup ever. You’ll never run out of uses for your Bear Paws. Originally designed as the perfect tool for pulling pork, Bear Paws are also ideal for lifting and shredding chicken, brisket, beef, pork, turkey, or whatever else suits your fancy on the grill. They’re great for tossing salads, too. Bear Paws are the best accessory for your grill, smoker, or kitchen, and they make great gifts for BBQ fanatics. Experience the best with Bear Paws. We’ve been named The Best BBQ Tool by the National BBQ Association, and have been featured on TV on BBQ Pitmasters, America’s Test Kitchen, and Guy Fieri’s Diner’s, Drive-Ins, and Dives.

An Overview On Stocking Stuffers For Men

Have you gotten the guys in your life to tell you what they actually want for the holidays? Congratulations! You’ve won more than half the battle. The expectation of self-sufficiency that society places on guys can make them a little tight-lipped when it comes to filling out the wish list, but don’t worry: If you have to guess, we’ve got some ways you can hedge your bets.

When we’re talking about stocking stuffers, your shopping mission actually gets a little easier. By definition, you’ve got to keep things small, which eliminates a lot of options. With the exception of the dreaded Dad Tie, your usual clothing gifts are going to be too big. That leaves three main categories that should appeal to most gents: Tech, tools and toys.

Tech

Don’t be afraid to go for gadgets, even if you’re determined to keep things cheap. Tech gear doesn’t need to mean a new smartphone or fitness watch (though those will certainly be appreciated). There are relatively inexpensive accessories out there like phone chargers and earphones that most guys always need, frequently wear out and rarely buy for themselves. Know a music lover? There are tons of sales on Bluetooth speakers during the holidays. Or, if your man loves his facial hair, a good beard trimmer might be just the thing if he doesn’t already have one.

Tools

If the gent you’re buying for has even a trace of handyman ability, your list just got a lot easier to fill. If you know your way around a tool chest as well, maybe you can sneak a peek at his and look for items that might be missing or worn. So many tools fit just right into a stocking that it would be impossible to list them all. Some of the essentials include drills, emergency flashlights or socket sets, but probably the biggest hit over the past few seasons has been the multi-tool, a high-tech update on the Swiss army knife. Some of the best can combine multiple screwdrivers, a flashlight, a wrench and several other tools into a package the size of a small remote control.

Tools don’t necessarily have to be the fix-it type, either. Food-loving fellas will appreciate some grill utensils, a good set of knives, a knife sharpener or one of the high-tech food temperature gauges that have come on the market of late.

There’s also a ton of great items for the car, ranging from the life-saving (jumper cables, tire pressure gauges) to the convenient (smartphone mounts or GPS devices).

Toys

When it comes to game time, even the most mature men can revert to boyhood pretty fast (and some spouses might argue they never really revert back). Golf balls or baseball gloves are a no-brainer for fans of either sport, and a good deck of cards will always be appreciated, especially if it’s personalized in some way. If you want to go a little pricier, there’s always video games. Just make sure you’re buying the game for a console that your man already owns. And these days, you can even get recreational drones that are as small as a smartphone.

And while it’s not one of the above categories, there is one fallback gift that works for almost any guy: Vice. Unless they’re a tee-totaller, most any dude will find a use for a good bottle of whiskey, gin or craft beer. And even those who don’t smoke regularly sometimes like a good cigar. As with anyone on your list, a little research will go a long way.

 

DYWM Fun Fact

So you think stockings are just a receptacle for tiny trinkets and candy canes? Not the one that was made for a charity event in 2011 by the Italian volunteer services group Pubblica Assistenza Carrara e Sezioni. At more than 168 by 70 feet, it measures in as the largest Christmas stocking ever created. Per Guinness World Record rules, it was indeed stuffed with presents — in this case, candy.

The Stocking Stuffer For Men Buying Guide

  • Want to add a little pizzazz to an otherwise common gift? Personalize it. Monograms or nameplates work especially well for lighters or keychain items, but they can be put on almost anything. Depending on the item, it might not even cost that much extra, and you can bet it will be their new favorite item. Tools, towels, wallets and pocket flasks are all good candidates. Just make doubly sure that it’s something the man in question can actually use. Otherwise, all you’re doing is making sure he can’t return it.
  • Giving your dad or another significant male a tie is such a TV trope that we shouldn’t have to issue a warning, but just in case you need one: Don’t — especially if the recipient doesn’t have a professional office job to begin with. The less you know someone, the more awkward a tie will be. It’s a pretty big red flag that you had no idea what to get them and should have just gone with a gift card. If guys need ties, they will directly tell a loved one or buy it themselves.
  • Speaking of gift cards: If they’re for a place where your guy shops, they will be appreciated. But they still scream “I ran out of ideas,” unless you take a little extra time with the packaging. Consider hiding a gift card inside an otherwise innocuous gift like a pair of socks, a deck of cards or even (if they have the right sense of humor) a tie.
