"These mitts are just as described. They are quite flexible, which allows similar dexterity to old fashioned cotton mitts. We were pleasantly surprised how well they insulated heat (much better than cotton mitts). The longer length is worth having to protect the forearms."
A better oven mitt. NoCry Silicone Oven Mitts aren’t bulky, inflexible or hard to use. You’ll be pleasantly surprised how little heat you feel when lifting a scalding pot or hot tray out of the oven. The protective silicone outer shield reflects heat away from your hand, so you can easily carry hot dishes from oven to the table—up to 450°.
The secret is the thin, heat-reflecting silicone layer. It’s much thinner than traditional cloth oven mitts, so holding hot items feels more like holding the same items without thick, padded mitts (minus the burns of course). Compare them to your old oven mitts and you won’t believe the difference.
Raised Y-O grip pattern makes it easy to grasp and hold every thing from hot dishes to food items (like a roast as you carve it). And the gloves are ambidextrous—no need for separate gloves for left and right hands. As they come in a pair, if you don’t need both gloves you can use one and keep the other as a backup.
Water proof, easy to clean. The silicone outer layer is waterproof, so food juices, broths, and soups won’t soak in if you spill on the gloves. Simply rinse the gloves with soap and warm water, then shake dry—they’re as good as new.
