When you do a lot of cooking you need a quality set of oven mitts. Â I have owned many different oven mitts of the years, and I recently had the chance to review this set of Silicone Heat Resistant Gloves from AYL. Â They are perfect for all my cooking, baking and grilling!
These gloves are made of silicone, which makes lots of sense. Â I have a number of different silicone baking items, like muffin pans, but until I saw these it never occurred to me that silicone was an excellent material for oven mitts. Â The material is flexible, so I feel like I have a lot more control over what I am doing when I wear them.
And unlike most oven mitts these have a five finger grip, which makes it much easier to get a good grip on the hot pans or cookie sheets. Â The silicone material has a texture, so you don’t have to worry about things slipping out of your grasp. Â And they provide better heat protection than fabric oven mitts. Â It seems like they would be especially good for grilling too! Â I always burn my hands rotating shish kebob skewers, because it is so hard to do with bulky fabric oven mitts. Â I will be using them for our BBQs as soon as the snow melts this spring.
The gloves are made of pure food grade silicone, which is BPA-free and FDA approved. Â They are heat resistant to temperatures up to 425 F, and you can even run them through the dishwasher to clean them. Â I love that I can use them to pick up something like raw meat and then put them in the dishwasher to make sure they really get clean. Â These are a very handy kitchen item, and now that I have a set I find them indispensableÂ for my cooking.
You can buy them at Amazon.com, and they are reasonably priced at $19.99.
