About Us

Established in 1993, Bear Paws were invented as a result of frustrations from pulling pork with forks.

After more than 20 years on the market with multiple revisions and modifications, we are happy to offer one of the most versatile tools for the kitchen and BBQ. Although the product was initially designed for pulling pork, our customers use Bear Paws for everything from lifting meats (pork butt/shoulder, turkey, ham, roast, etc.) to stabilizing food while cutting and carving, keeping fingers away from the knife blade.

Customers and critics all agree that Bear Paws are just as fun as they are useful. We are very happy to be a #1 Best Seller on Amazon and are particularly pleased that our customers rated Bear Paws 5 out of 5 stars for overall product satisfaction. The toughest of critics are the BBQ enthusiasts from the National BBQ Association who awarded Bear Paws the “Best BBQ Tool” in 2013.

After all the improvements we made over the years to perfect Bear Paws, we are confident we have the best product on the market while maintaining a competitive price. We are proud to have all manufacturing done in the USA, using only the highest quality FDA approved and BPA free materials.
