Best Oven Gloves
Friday, 17 July 2015
Because oven gloves are such a vital aspect of kitchen safety and an integral part of everyday life, we know how important it is that you get the right one to fit your needs. While every manufacturer will claim that their gloves are the "best oven gloves", it can be difficult to know which ones are actually best for you. Don't worry because here are the best 5 oven gloves as chosen by our glove experts over here at Safety Gloves.
The Polyco Hot Glove Heat Resistant Glove is fantastic for those who need a little extra grip from their oven gloves. Alongside being able to withstand up to 250°C (perfect for most home ovens), it also has a nitrile grip pattern to increase your grip on trays and pans. If you find a normal oven glove isn’t giving you the hold you need, this is the glove for you.
It also features good cut and tear resistance, which increases the lifespan and safety of the glove. This means that you can use the glove again and again without having to worry about a reduction in the level of quality you are receiving.
If you need more dexterity and flexibility from your glove, the Coolskin Heat Resistant Oven Gloves are the ones for you. Because the outside of the glove is made from a strong and very heat resistant synthetic fibre, they are not only flexible but they can also withstand temperatures up to 350°C.
The gloves are ambidextrous so you can put them on either hand, which makes them fast to put on in case of a culinary emergency.
Similar to the Coolskin Heat Resistant Oven Gloves, these gloves have a long sleeve which is designed to protect against steam from pans and trays. This steam resistance comes from the inner lining of the glove, which is made from cotton and latex and also provides additional comfort to the gloves.
These gloves are heat resistant up top 350°C thanks to the Nomex outer layer, making them great for both regular ovens and hotter steaming ovens.
These gloves are made to ensure that food and oil don’t stick to them. This is because of the Teflon construction and makes them very easy to clean and maintain. In addition, the gloves are available with a different coloured band on the cuff, which makes it much easier to avoid the risk of food contamination between raw and cooked food.
The extra long sleeves also give additional protection to the wrists to reduce the chance of accidental contact with hot surfaces.
This glove not only provides protection against heat and steam, but also against liquids. This makes it great for handling pans of boiling water or hot sauces. The liquid protection comes from the integrated PVC barrier which keeps water off your hands.
These also have a terry cloth shell which helps protect against cuts and abrasions, meaning the oven glove can last longer.
We know how important it is that your hands stay as safe as possible while cooking, so we hope that this selection helps make your choice easier. However, if you’d like to see more oven gloves you can visit Safety Gloves and check out our range of Oven Gloves.
