Coolskin Steam Oven Gloves
Coolskin Steam Oven Gloves are no exception. Perfect for use by the casual home cook and professional alike, these gloves provide exceptional heat-resistance up to 350°C, more than enough to deal with your common household oven or stove. Resistant from both steam and heat, Coolskin back these gloves against heat from ovens, AGA cookers, solid fuel stoves, microwaves and barbecues.
Protecting your hands and wrists with 27cm of length, these gloves use the power of Nomex (a strong synthetic heat-resistant fibre), to keep the heat where it belongs: outside your gloves. Comfortable and flexible, the Steam Oven Gloves features an additional cotton liner with a cotton-lined latex layer to protect you from heat, steam, and any other type of heat your kitchen can throw at you.
Polyco Hot Glove Heat-Resistant Gloves
Polyco Hot Glove Heat-Resistant Gloves. With the capacity to withstand temperatures as high as 250°C, these gloves are resistant enough to protect your hands from the heat of household ovens and other home-cooking appliances.
With enough comfort and flexibility to be worn for a long period of time, you can happily go about your work in the kitchen without having to take them off to give your hands a break. Since these gloves are ambidextrous, either glove can be worn on either hand, making putting these gloves on as simple as they are to take off. Specialising in protection from dry-contact heat, these gloves are a perfect option for those who like to be comfortable while they cook, and are ideal for wearing when using ovens, AGA cookers, solid fuel stoves, microwaves and barbecues.
For extra protection for your wrists and forearms, these gloves are also available in an Extra-Long Gauntlet Version.
Since so many Wirecutter staff members (myself included) prefer using folded kitchen towels instead of pot holders, oven gloves, or oven mitts, we decided to add a Now Designs Ripple Kitchen Towel (the staff-favorite dish towel in the Wirecutter test kitchen) to our lineup. In our tests, after folding the Now Designs towel in half three times, we were able to hold a 400 °F skillet for an impressive 2seconds. The folded kitchen towel was more heat resistant than any of the oven mitts, oven gloves, and pot holders we tested. That said, we decided not to include a kitchen towel as one of our picks because you can severely burn your hand if it’s folded incorrectly.
We decided to add the staff-favorite dish towel to our lineup to see how it would compare to the other oven mitts, pot holders, and oven gloves we tested (pictured above: the Now Designs Ripple Kitchen Towel).
For this guide, we tested pot holders and oven mitts made from the following materials: cotton (quilted and terry cloth), poly-cotton (a blend of polyester and cotton), neoprene (a type of synthetic rubber), silicone, and aramid fibers (synthetic heat-resistant fibers such as Kevlar and Nomex). In our tests, we were surprised to find that the type of material didn’t matter as much as we anticipated. A lot of factors contribute to heat protection, including the thickness of the material and its combination with other materials (such as silicone lined with quilted cotton).
We tested 1oven mitts, pot holders, and oven gloves made from a range of materials.
Oven mitts come in three main styles: the “puppet” oven mitt, the Star Trek-style three-fingered oven mitt, and the traditional oven mitt most people are familiar with.
However, we decided to only include traditional oven mitts for this guide. After scouring online customer reviews, and taking into account years of our own testing, we found the other styles more awkward to use and less maneuverable than a traditional oven mitt. We also looked at oven gloves, such as the ubiquitous Ove’ Glove, which resemble oversized knit winter gloves. Additionally, we tested a variety of pot holders.
Clark says she prefers oven mitts over pot holders or side towels because they offer more protection for her forearms when she reaches into an oven. And though oven mitts tend to be bulky, they offer the most skin coverage compared to an oven glove, pot holder, or side towel. That said, many of our testers preferred using pot holders because they’re smaller and easier to grab in a hurry. McDermott told us she’s partial to oven gloves because they offer the most dexterity. Deciding between styles is a matter of personal preference; choose what’s most comfortable for you.
We wanted to find oven mitts that could fit a range of hand sizes. For maximum arm coverage, we searched for oven mitts between 1and 1inches long. We also looked for pot holders that were wide enough to allow us to grasp a pot lid or handle without the risk of burning our hands.
We also looked for oven mitts and pot holders with a loop for hanging, which is a useful feature, especially if you have a small kitchen with limited drawer space. Hanging oven mitts and pot holders near your stove means they’ll always be at the ready. There’s nothing worse than scrambling to find a pair of pot holders buried in a drawer when you’re trying to remove something from the oven quickly.
We looked for oven mitts and pot holders with a loop for hanging (from left to right: the OXO Good Grips Silicone Pot Holder with Magnet, the Homwe Extra Long Professional Silicone Oven Mitt, the Grill Armor Extreme Heat-Resistant Oven Glove, and the DII Terry Cloth Pot Holder.
Our testers felt they were able to maneuver the Homwe oven mitts with ease.
The inner lining of the Homwe oven mitt is attached at the base of the mitt, so be sure to pull it inside-out before machine washing.
For light cleaning, the silicone exterior of the Homwe oven mitts can be hand washed using a sponge, a little dish soap, and hot water. The mitts are also machine-washable and dryer-safe (note: the tag on the inner lining of the mitt recommends air drying, but we successfully dried the mitt in a dryer several times). Also, since the inner lining is attached at the base of the mitt, be sure to pull it inside-out before machine washing.
In our experience, silicone oven mitts often retain heat for several seconds after holding a hot pan. However, we don’t think this is a dealbreaker. Just be mindful of how you handle the Homwe mitt after touching hot items. Also, the extra-long Homwe oven mitts don’t come in a slew of colors like our pick for pot holders, but they are available in red and turquoise.
Our top pick for pot holders are the inexpensive DII Terry Pot Holders (above), sold three to a pack.
A pricier silicone pot holder
The OXO Good Grips pot holder allowed us to hold a 400 °F cast iron skillet for an average of 20 seconds, nearly twice as long as our other picks. The unique silicone coating also provides a secure grip.
The silicone coating on the exterior of the OXO pot holder, combined with its cotton and polyester lining, allowed us to hold a 400 °F cast iron skillet for an average of 20 seconds.
The OXO pot holder has a silicone loop for hanging and a magnet sewn into the lining so it can be attached to a fridge or an oven door. While it’s a bit stiffer than our main pick, the DII Terry Pot Holders, our testers were still able to grasp pot lids with ease. The OXO pot holder is water-resistant and machine-washable, too.
The OXO pot holder has a magnet sewn into the lining so it can be attached to a fridge or an oven door.
Some of our testers with smaller hands felt the pocket on the OXO pot holder was slightly too large, but they didn’t think it was a dealbreaker. One of our testers with larger hands found the opening to be a bit too small, which restricted the full extension of his thumb. That said, we still think the OXO pot holder will provide a comfortable fit for most people.
We recommend the Grill Armor gloves if dexterity is more important to you than heat resistance.
Our former pick, the San Jamar 17″ BestGrip Oven Mitt enabled us to hold a 400 °F cast iron skillet for nearly 30 seconds. However, we’ve read reviews that indicate the stitching unravels. We’ve also noticed that the neoprene begins to smell and smoke well below its advertised maximum heat-safe temperature of 500 °F.
In a new round of testing, our former pick, the San Jamar 17″ BestGrip Oven Mitt, began to melt and smoke markedly lower than its advertised maximum heat-safe temperature of 500 °F.
In a new round of testing, our former pick, the San Jamar 17″ BestGrip Oven Mitt, began to melt and smoke markedly lower than its advertised maximum heat-safe temperature of 500 °F.
Though the San Jamar 15″ Cool Touch Oven Mitt (Cook’s Illustrated’s top pick) allowed us to hold a hot skillet for 1to 1seconds, our testers complained it was too bulky. Additionally, it has been low in stock over the past year.
The stiff stitching around the perimeter of the Williams-Sonoma Oven Mitt made it difficult to grasp the handles of a roasting pan. It also gave off an acrid smell when heated and began to melt slightly well below its advertised maximum heat-safe temperature of 500 °F.
The Mastrad OrkaPlus silicone mitt was awkward to use and provided limited maneuverability.
The Triumphant Chef Super Flex Silicone Oven Mitt is too short and doesn’t provide enough forearm coverage.
Since the Choice Terry Cloth Pot Holders are bigger than our main pick, they’re great for people with larger hands. However, we noticed some of the seams were unraveling.
Our previous pick for pot holders, the San Jamar 7″ × 7″ UltiGrips Hot Pad allowed us to hold the handle of a 400 °F cast iron skillet for roughly 1seconds. However, after long-term testing, we noticed that the neoprene-like material smells badly when holding hot items. It also melted slightly and began to smoke well below its advertised maximum heat-safe temperature of 500 °F.
Our testers unanimously disliked the San Jamar EZ-Kleen Hot Pad, which has a sticky, grippy outer coating that feels similar to flypaper. The wrist strap was also too wide for nearly all of our testers’ hands.
In our tests, we could hold a 400 °F skillet for about to seconds using the Ritz Basic Potholders (Cook’s Illustrated’s choice), which was a few seconds less than our main pick, the DII Terry Pot Holders.
Grill Heat Aid Resistant Gloves
The best oven mitts should be able to protect your hands from heat and burns. They should also be of maximum heat protection. It should protect you from the heat of up to 66degrees. They should be durable and be able to protect one from burns and injuries. Unlike other mitts in the market, these outstanding cooking gloves are easy on and easy off. Whether small or big hand No matter the type of hand you use, whether left or hand, these gloves flip and fit anyone.
Homwe silicon oven mitts
The silicon oven mitts have an extra layer which protects you from any burns during cooking. These mitts resist heat to up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit; thus they protect your hand from burns that can occur when the outdoor grills experience a flare-up. It is easy to clean them since you can wipe them or wash them in the washing machine. The Homwe silicon oven mitts are 100% made from silicon.
Mastrad A8230silicone oven mitt
The Mastrad silicone oven mitt is waterproof making it different from the other ones. It is flexible therefore one can grab anything out of a hot oven without burning him/herself. They are non-staining therefore you can use it without worrying that it will get stained. They are also easy to clean. It has cotton lining which you can easily remove it and clean.
D. OXO silicone oven mitt
This silicon mitt has an addition thermal insulation which prevents your hands from sweating. This unique feature is only available in this OXO silicone mitt. The mitt is long enough thus it protects both your wrist and forearm from burns. Cleaning is easy since you can only wipe it with a wet sponge or wash and dry it in the laundry machine.
Star Wars oven mitts
Do you want decorative and festive-like oven mitts that you can use for parties and celebrations? Then you need to get the Star Wars oven mitts. It is a double-sided mitt, therefore, it can be machine washed, or you can wash it in cold water fluff to dry. They are very colorful and attractive. The mitts can fit both hands: the right and the left hand.
Grill armor gloves
Many people burn themselves while cooking. Grill armor gloves are the perfect solution to this problem. It offers heat protection of up to 9320 F, which is pretty high as compared to other gloves. They are also heat and flame resistance thus perfect gloves that you need in your kitchen. The gloves are lightweight and comfortable and provide your fingers with great flexibility. They are easy t clean and machine washable and feature a convenient hook for hanging.
The oven glove is perfect for handling hot surfaces around the house or other places. Its outer part is made of heat and flame material which is used by firefighters. This makes it resistible to heat. Therefore when expose to open flame, it cannot catch fire. Its interior is made of cotton making it comfortable when worn.
Size And Shape
The size and length of the mitt are also another important factors to consider. Therefore you need to choose wisely the length and size of the mitt according to your needs. If your oven is big, you will need a large mitt and if it’s small you will need a small one. Also, a good mitt should enclose the entire hand and have a cuff that covers the wrist.
How we tested
Oven mitts must be washable. We stained each with a measured amount of ketchup, soy sauce, and vegetable oil and headed for the laundry room. (All mitts were machine-washable with the exception of the neoprene models.) The oil stain clung to some gloves, one faded, another emerged covered in lint, and a few shrank considerably. Only our winner and best buy emerged from the washer as good as new.
If your oven mitt accidentally comes in contact with a heating element, does it melt or scorch? With a fire extinguisher handy, we cranked the burner to high and stuck each glove in the flame for five seconds. Neoprene and terry cloth mitts caught fire (the neoprene smelled foul), leather gloves scorched, and Nomex models discolored. Again, silicone proved its mettle, emerging intact. Our winner, made of Nomex and Kevlar, was also unscathed.
Design Trifecta 360 Knife Block
Admittedly expensive, this handsome block certainly seemed to live up to its billing as “the last knife block you ever have to buy.” The heaviest model in our testing, this block was ultrastable, and its durable bamboo exterior was a breeze to clean. Well-placed medium-strength magnets made it easy to attach all our knives, and a rotating base gave us quick access to them. One tiny quibble: The blade of our 12-inch slicing knife stuck out a little.
Schmidt Brothers Downtown Block
This roomy block completely sheathed our entire winning knife set using just one of its two sides—and quite securely, thanks to long, medium-strength magnet bars. Heavy, with a grippy base, this block was very stable. An acrylic guard made this model extra-safe but also made it a little trickier to insert knives and to clean; the wood block itself showed some minor cosmetic scratching during use.

Kinds Of Oven Mitts
Unlike before, when you’d only have a choice of pattern, color and design of cloth oven mitts, now there are different kinds available, depending on the material the mitts are made of. Choosing the ideal pair of oven mitts to suit your needs is easy as long as you have all the helpful information needed.
Heat Resistance Limit
If you are likely to simmer at high temperatures, you may need to consider the heat-resistance limit. The higher the resistance limit, the safer your mitt will be. Limits will range mostly from 450oF to 900F. This feature, however, will majorly depend on the material used to make the mitt.
Those are some of the features and important information you might need to chew on before we look at our top five best oven mitts.
Matching up your oven mitts with your kitchen décor is of essence. That is why you might need to consider your kitchen décor before going for any mitt.
Since you are most likely going to hang your gloves, it means you will need to be keen on its design and aesthetics. Some of the mitts will come with a hanging hook. A mitt with such like feature will be one to bet on.
Now that you’re aware of the kinds of oven mitts as well as what to look for when you’re choosing oven mitts, let’s move on to some of the best oven mitts available in the market now to further help you make your choice.

Measuring 1inches long, it will fit almost your entire forearm.This will make sure that it shields you from heat and messy situations. It is cotton lined and coated with neoprene.

Most Recommended Oven Mitts For 2017
Double oven mitts are an oven mitt variation that features a wide strip of insulating material. They are capped at each end, like a connected pair of mitts, giving you ample protection in the middle too.
This is especially useful when trying to lift or transfer a big, heavy pot or pan. With the strip going from one hand to the other, your torso is party protected from the hot edges of the pot or pan.
Watch this video if you want to learn how to make your own double oven mitts.
While silicone may provide you with better protection while cooking, it’s not difficult to see how some people choose to stick with cotton oven mitts. A cotton oven mitt, for one, has long been part of a tradition. It’s the very first fabric used by manufacturers for mass consumption. It’s a kitchen staple and a bit sentimental.
If you want to keep using your cotton oven mitt but you wish to have better protection from burns, there’s a workaround to that. Just have your cotton oven mitt treated with silicone for superior heat protection. A layer of silicone on your existing mitts will help with boiling liquid that may slosh during pot transfers.
Considering quality, features, and price, the Triumphant Chef Silicone Oven Mitts takes the crown. The pair is very affordable and the material used is topnotch in terms of heat resistance. The way it’s constructed also shouts durability which is essential for a home where the kitchen can be an extremely busy place.
Wrapping it up
These gloves are lightweight, flexible and heat resistant up to 932° F. Made of protective Aramid fibre that has been coated with silicone strips, these gloves give you the best of both worlds.
At the same time you get extreme grip from rubber like silicone. Meaning you can handle burning logs, shift around charcoal or touch hot food without having to worry.
We suggest you sticking on the cautious side with these gloves. Even steam can lower their thermal resistance, causing you to burn your hands.
The fingers on these gloves also run a little large, so if you have small hands you might want to consider something else.
Heatproof up to 425° and made of water resistant silicone these gloves offer excellent grip at about the same price point as the previous gloves.
What you give up in temperature resistance, you gain in versatility with the ability to handle liquid and steam.
For true barbecue gloves we would like to see higher heat resistance. These gloves are not ideal if you need to handle a lot of charcoal or burning wood. Charcoal and embers can easily exceed the maximum heat range, meaning that handling them can be dangerous.
The area around the wrist is also on the loose side, so radiant heat can find its way in, potentially making things uncomfortable. If required they can either be wiped clean or placed in the dishwasher.
The waterproof benefits of these gloves are balanced by the fact that you lose some of the dexterity you have with fabric gloves. Fabric gloves provide much more dexterity and are far more comfortable than these gloves.
For the best of both worlds, consider buying a pair of Ekogrips bbq gloves for handling food around steam or water, and grab the Extreme Heat Resistant grill gloves for anything really hot.
Just like the Ekogrips above these gloves are made from heat resistant silicone. With a similar max temperature of up to 442° F, these gloves can be put through the dishwasher and perform OK under wet conditions, at the expense of dexterity though.
You can choose between S/M, L or XL, and these gloves seem to run a bit large. We suggest sizing down.
You also need to be careful not to turn the back of the glove towards the source of heat, as the textured part on the front helps protect your hands.
The lifetime replacement guarantee is also a nice bonus for a bit of added piece of mind.
Any bbq glove made from genuine American deerskin with a boarhide heat shield and cuff was always going to get out attention.
While the glove is marketed as a welding glove, we find that welding gloves make some of the best general purpose gloves for outdoor cooking and fire management.
The leather gives you good initial protection and the length of the gloves helps to ensure your wrists and arms stay protected.
And who knows, you might even get some welding done while your brisket is stalling.
Turns out that these gloves can get rather slippery (not ideal for handling greasy meat), and they can stain.
We would recommend going for a glove with a bit more grip / texture, but the gloves are otherwise well liked among the smoking community, and are a good buy if you can get them on special. Get the latest price.
If you want the peace of mind that comes with buying a known brand like Weber, then these gloves will still work great.
Aramid fibres are a class of heat resistant, synthetic fibre that are widely used in firefighting, the aerospace industry and for various military applications.
They are used in ballistic rated body armour, composite materials like kevlar and as an asbestos substitute. Aramid fibre can be broken down into two characteristics, Para & Meta, each with their own strengths and weaknesses.
For the purpose of heat resistance they are by far the best choice. At their highest degree of production quality they boast a low resistance to abrasion, continued fabric integrity at high temperatures and a non existent melting point.
All of the oven gloves mentioned in the Top Best Oven Gloves are outstanding when it comes to their functions, materials used, and not to mention, prices. As the intended user, you should know and evaluate first the activities you will most likely use the oven gloves with. Will you use them solely for cooking or baking? Do you also intend to use them for grilling and even setting up the fireplace? Do you want one pair of mitts and gloves for all of your activities? Or do you want to separate mitts and gloves for cooking and other activities? Answer these questions first and then decide again what gloves above do you think are best suitable for you.

Cutting the Fabric
Cut the main fabric into the following pieces: Main body: 100x20cm (40x8in) Lining: 100x20cm (40x8in) Mitt front: cut two, each 25x20cm (10x8in).
Cut the contrast fabric into the following pieces: Mitt linings: cut two, each 25x20cm (10x8in) Binding: cut five strips, each 4.5x70cm (2x28in).
Cutting the Pattern Pieces
Place the main body fabric wrong sides (WS) up. Place the traced mitt pattern centrally at the top of the fabric piece and draw around it.
Measure 46cm (18in) down from the bottom straight edge of the mitt pattern and place the bottom of the pattern (flipped over) at this point and draw around it. Draw two straight lines joining the bottom edges of the two patterns together.
Cut along your drawn lines to make the oven glove shape. Place this cut fabric wrong side (WS) together with the lining fabric piece and cut around it. Repeat with the wadding.
Place the two mitt front fabric pieces WS together. Put the mitt pattern centrally on top, pin then draw around it and cut out both pieces together. One will be the mirror image of the other.
Assembling the Mitts
Place one mitt lining right sides (RS) down with its wadding piece on top then one mitt front RS up on top.
Tack all the layers together around the edges as well as working vertical and horizontal lines across it spaced 5cm (2in) apart. Now work lines of machine quilting through all three layers. We have spaced ours 3cm (11/4in) apart.
Take one binding strip and place it RS together along the straight edge of the mitt. Stitch the binding strip in place through all the three layers using a 1cm (3/8in) seam allowance. Trim the binding to meet the mitt edge.
Turn the strip over to the back of the mitt then turn the long edge under by 1cm (3/8in) to match up with the line of stitching. Topstitch into place (image 02). Step five Repeat to make another mitt.
They are machine-washable and cover most of the lower arm to protect from burns. One important feature to note on these gloves is that they are not waterproof, so if you’re working with soups or steaming liquids, it may be best to opt for an all-silicone option.
However, with a 100% money-back guarantee and a lifetime warranty, Grill Beast’s cooking gloves are certainly a purchase that can be made with confidence.

Oven mitts are a very common but often much overlooked household item. Anywhere you have a kitchen, you will almost certainly find at least one oven mitt. But few people know just how many great new designs and materials are available that could make your cooking experiment not only less painful but more comfortable.
How To Choose The Right Material
You want to choose your material based on your own needs. What temperatures are you usually working with in your kitchen? How long do you have to hold the dish after you take it out of the oven and before you can set it down somewhere safe? For extended times, you need something with a higher heat tolerance.
Do you struggle with slippery or difficult to grip dishes? Then you definitely want to skip the cotton and go for a rubber oven mitt which usually have nonslip surfaces to make sure that dish of piping hot food does not slip out of your hands and wreak havoc on you and your kitchen.
How To Choose The Right Design
When choosing design, you need to consider what kind of functionality and maneuverability you need. A long oven mitt protects you from accidentally burning your wrists or arms on the dish. A fingered glove lets you get a more secure hold on the dish. Getting a double set ensures that you can use both hands to hold the steaming hot dish (which decreases your risk of dropping it).
Decide what your highest priorities are and choose a design based on those priorities.
