When the sample for this came into the warehouse, it seemed so light and small, I wondered how it could protect hands from high heat. But let me tell you, IT WORKS. We tested it ourselves in the WorldStart Test Kitchens, which are located in the kitchen of my house. Let me tell you, I put this thing through the paces.
First of all, I fired up the oven to a blazing 500 DEGREES and put a cast-iron Dutch oven in there. Nothing holds heat like cast iron and in no time that pot was smokin' hot. I even tested it with an instant-read thermometer to make sure it was 500 degrees. I slipped on the mitt, touched the handles, lifted the lid and I didn't feel a thing. AMAZING!
I usually don't like oven gloves, because they're big and bulky and, for me, make it harder to get a firm hold on pot handles and lids. I usually go with towel for the control, but they aren't that effective against heat and I've got the scars on my hands to prove it. And I may or may not have set one or two of them on fire.
The slim design of this glove slides over your fingers for complete protection, but still gives you total flexibility. I was skeptical that something this lightweight could really protect my fingers, but IT WORKED PERFECTLY. I didn't feel a thing.
It's also great for stirring. Nobody likes grabbing a hot spoon, but have you ever tried to stir with a bulky oven glove? I even tested it out by flipping a steak using only my hands. The surface that touches the pot is specially ridged for a firm grip. Great control and my fingers didn't feel a thing!
Best of all, this is completely washable. I was making kind of sticky pan sauce last night and got a little on the glove. It rinsed right off under the tap. A towel or a cloth oven mitt would have required a round in the washer. You can even put these right in the dishwasher. It's so CONVENIENT!
It also worked perfectly for picking up a cookie sheet from the oven. I will warn you, that if you have any heavy pots or cookie sheets, it's best to buy two of them.
But for only $7.97 , why not? You'll probably want to get four in case you have a helper in the kitchen.
Everybody who works here wants at least two for their kitchen, but they'll have to wait to see if there are any left over, because I'm giving you first crack at this special deal for a limited time only.
