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.

    These are pretty heavy duty. I am not sure how much I really needed them as I never get around to doing pulled pork that often as I plan. However, these things do the job and you can use them to pick up items. They are sharp as heck. As a matter of fact, it’s my only negative about them. They are almost too sharp. If they sit in a drawer like mine, be careful and don’t forget they are in there. I’ve had some “gotchas” with these. They are strong and wicked sharp. Should last a while if you are not ridiculous with them.

    I am not much of a cook, so I am always trying to find different things to cook. I get tired of the same things over and over. Yes, chicken is chicken, but this is a different way of eating it at least. Well, when I went to use this it was a little difficulty for me. Didn’t really like it all that much, but again….I am not much of a cook.

    I had rather high hopes, but fair expectations for these shredders. I must say they do not disappoint. I ripped through a half pound of roasted chicken breast in about three minutes. This is the first time I’ve ever used them and as I worked, I discovered that if you come to a piece of tough meat or gristle, do not force the cutting. But take your time and just be steady and patient. Otherwise you will dull the teeth. Don’t just throw them in the sink either after you’re done. Rinse them and put them aside until you’re ready to wash them. And then, be careful. You can get hurt. Treat them like fine cutlery. Remember, don’t force your way through the shredding and store them so they can’t get damaged. You’ll be very happy with these. I know I am.

    These claws are awesome. I use to shred my pork roasts with two large serving forks, but after a few minutes, I had to stop and let my hands recover. These claws make the shredding so easy. They tear through and shred the meat very quickly with minimal effort. I have used them to shred pork butts and chickens. I was a bit concerned because they are all plastic, but that concern vanished quickly when I saw how well-made they are. I’m sure these will outlast me!

    I bought these as a gift for my boyfriend for Christmas. He loved them! They’re super sharp, comfortable to hold (even for larger hands), and very well made. I ended up buying a knockoff pair for my uncle later on and regretted it. It’s totally worth spending a few extra dollars to get the original version. They double as home defense too!

    Highly recommended! I’ll buy a pair for someone else someday.

    I was a little concerned about ordering this item because some of the bad reviews, however I saw that there were many more good than bad reviews, so I placed my order. I received the Bear Paws Shredder Claws the next day and I had a Boston Butt that I need to shred (pull). I was amazed at how well the claws worked. they were much faster than using forks and much easier on my hands. I was able to shred the butt in a short time and didn’t have any problems with burning my hands as I do with forks. The claws were easy to hand wash and I had no problems with the tips of the claws bending, as some reviewers have posted. If you shred any type of meat I highly recommend that you invest in a set of these claws.

    Excellent item. It was more than I expected. The claw part was sharper and cut easier with the meat. It made shredding the meat much easier than before which made it worth the item. Also the handles are great for my smaller hands but also great for my husband’s bigger hands. Cleaning is super easy. I rinse under the water right after I use it. And then was with a sponge. I have put it on the top rack of dishwasher and it’s a-okay! I also put the setting of “drying” and “sterilize” on my dishwasher which means heat. And the claw did great with the heat from the dishwasher and also the heat of the meat.

    I would recommend this product to my family and friends!!

    One suggestion: I do think the claw part is super sharp. I have a young child at home. I would consider this as sharp to be put in our knife drawer. I would no let a young child use this item. Please be safe while using this item and keep it out of reach of small kiddos.
