If you cook, bake, grill or barbecue then you know that protecting yourself from heat is an absolute must. Using your hands to turn and tear meat you are grilling or barbecuing is the best because you have better control. Though it’s tough to do without the proper protection. Anything porous would allow boiling hot liquid in and burn your fingers.
Accessorize Your Life sent me a pair of Silicone Heat Resistant gloves for the purposes of review. In my house they’ve been used as oven mitts moving hot pans on and off the stove and out of the oven. They are great for pulling apart or slicing hot meats and vegetables. Though they do have individual fingers like a traditional glove and not a mitt they do have a tendency to slip on your hand a bit as you use them. My husband discovered that they do not fit large hands well. He can get his hand into them but not without some extra effort; removal was also an issue.
The other night we made apple pies as a family and I used the gloves to help me remove the cookie sheet with the pie out of the oven. I learned quickly that they are definitely not heat proof. At 425 degrees Fahrenheit the sheet was way too hot to keep my hands on for more than a few seconds. They were great for handling baked potatoes I was using for making twice baked stuffed potatoes. They allowed me to hold the hot potatoes while I sliced, scooped out and refilled them.
