Best Oven Gloves with Fingers

Tuesday, 10 July 2018  |  Eugene

Burns: we're all familiar with them, and we all understand why we need to avoid them. Despite this, they remain one of the most common kitchen injuries, and one that we seem to be unable to cut out of our lives. Oven mitts are clumsy, while heat-resistant pads or towels can often can slip around and leave parts of your hand uncovered. Luckily, there's a better way, and it's simpler than you think. Home cooks and chefs alike are increasingly turning to Oven Gloves with Fingers for their hand-protection needs in the kitchen, with consistently great results. This type of glove provides the same (and often better) protection as your standard oven mitts do, while leaving your fingers free to provide you with the best grip, and most dexterity possible.
