Silicone and cooking..what could be better? I love both of those things and I wish I could use them together more often. If I was rich, my whole kitchen would be full of silicone baking items, I dream of it being called silicone heaven..lol. Seriously though, I love silicone baking items, they all clean up really easily and they look great! But they also hold heat really well too which make it great for oven mitts.
I was drawn to these oven mitts, because they look just like boxing gloves. Yes the normal ones work just as well, but I tend to use things more when the appearance really appeals to me and that is what they do. I am not sure if this was intentional or not, if not, it is a nice happy coincidence for the company and a great way to market to men.
They go on well and I like that they have the fabric on the top instead of the silicone. The silicone can rub the wrong way and end up being an annoyance that far up on your arm. My new problem though is just as bad. My arms are too fat to pull the mitts all the way up to where they are suppose to sit. Of course they fit my skinny mini hubby well.
All in all they are a great mitt, I am going to make a cut in the fabric to make it easier to get my arm in them that won't affect the gloves at all. Other then the fit, they do keep heat out pretty well. The only time I felt heat was when I was holding a hot pan for longer then I should have been, moving it the table. I still didn't get burned and the gloves came out like a champ!
