What is an Oven Mitt or Glove?
An oven glove, or oven mitt, is an insulated glove or mitten usually worn in the kitchen to easily protect the wearer's hand from hot objects such as ovens, stoves, cookware, etc. Fabric gloves consist of heat insulation surrounded by cotton fabric, usually consisting of decorative patterns. Newer oven gloves are often treated with silicone, which makes them resistant to water and stains, or made of stronger synthetic materials such as Kevlar or Nomex. Oven mitts are often sold singly rather than in a pair, designed to be worn on either hand. For safety purposes, oven gloves should only be used when dry and only for short periods at a time. The gloves should not come into contact with heating elements, gas flames or similar sources of high temperature. Fabric gloves will not protect against hot liquids.
With the nice Spring weather, we are spending more time outdoors and that includes using our wonderful BBQ grill. Our grill is metal and gets extremely hot when used so we thought the EKSEL COOL Oven Gloves
would be a good investment for us rather than burning our hands. These offer heat resistance because of the woven aramid fibers and silicone strips that the gloves are made out of. I found the gloves had a great fit and fit comfortably. While wearing the gloves my hands and fingers could still move easily as well as pick up items. When picking up items though I found it was easier to pick up larger items than tiny items as the gloves get in the way for that. No big deal for me, but to give an idea of how they work. Also, because of the silicone strips, I found the grip on a bit better to pans when taking them from the oven and opening the grill top. Of course most importantly while wearing the gloves I didn`t get burned. I found they actually are heat resistant and do the job as they`re described to do. The gloves are well made, easy to clean and work - nothing more I could ask for unless they could cook for me!
