Honestly, I've always been the "whatever, buy it from the dollar store" kind of girl. I'm ever so slowly upgrading the everyday household shit that gets overlooked. Like oven mitts.
I won't lie to you, these are not attractive but they are awesome.
We have a Foreman standing electric grill that we use inside for things like burgers and we were able to pick up the grill surface while it was still hot using these gloves. I didn't feel any heat while wearing them and my grip was strong.
And by we and I mean me and Roomie B, a 6 foot tall dude. We could both wear and use these gloves without a problem, as could my mother with smaller hands than me and arthritis. The extra room didn't affect us at all.
- Fit me, mother, and Roomie B
- Comfortable with inside lining
- Really does protect your hand from heat
- Great grip with the texture, but will crush small,delicate pieces of food
- Easy to hang up with the loops, though you might want two hooks due to how thick the gloves are
And the bonus silicon brush:
$17 bucks is enough for me to weeble-wobble on buying something, but these are absolutely worth it.
I didn't realize how much I used oven mitts and how careful I had to be with mine. It's not a giant time sink, but I always had to adjust and fiddle and be extra sure where the mitts where at all times.
And those fabric gloves? Ugh, I HATE those. They can't drip anything for shit and feel so awful on my hands.
It's a small thing, but it's definitely an upgrade and makes me happy. Sounds terribly pathetic, but every spoon counts.
Getting better oven mitts should be on a list of "Make Yourself Look and Feel More Like An Adult, Even When You Really Aren't".
