i know that i review a fair number of products but my wife gets all these toys for me and i can’t help share my excitement for a good buy. these gloves are one of those products. I have been struggling with crappy oven mitts and bare flesh to get those hot items around the kitchen and bbq but no more. these 100% silicone gloves are heat resistant and very grippy. I have taken pans out of a super hot oven when making bread and they didn’t even start to transfer heat until after a couple of minutes of looking for a spot to put the pan down on. but it was my pulled pork that really made these gloves shine. I was able to grip and tear a oven hot pork shoulder and pull it to pieces while my hands stayed nice and burn free. a few minutes later I had a happy pile of yummy pork and safely cared for hands. I forget the temperature limit but it was higher than my oven or bbq can get to and i know that i’m safe. I wouldn’t use these in a direct fire but they work everywhere else and that is good for me. grab a pair off Amazon, your hands will thank you.
