Instyle Silicone Grip Thermal Glove

I have always found oven mitts clumsy. I saw this glove at Home Hardware and decided to give it a try. It cost me about $15 and I have used it for 3 months now.

It is definitely better than an oven mitt for manipulating tools and working with trays in my smoker and barbecue. It does give some protection from hot liquids but I wouldn’t want to spill boiling water over it while I was wearing it but I wouldn’t want to do that with an oven mitt either.

The silicon strips give it a good grip and I haven’t had any problem holding even heavy trays.

I like this glove.
