I need something for that extra hot dutch oven , I've been using 3 layers of pot holders each to lift out the dutch oven out of the oven, after it's been in there at 450-500 degrees . What you you suggest?

Any recommendations on oven mitts? I am looking into extra length mitts that can withstand heat up to 550 degrees. I googled and it seems silicone is best. What do you say?

I have to agree with YT. You want those silver gloves that foundry workers use

Which temperature scale are you on? I assume Fahrenheit.

I don't use silicone - a good quality fabric one with a good thermal layer will do/

They aren't very long, but I use Ove' Gloves. They work really well. You can't walk all over the house with a hot dish (not that you'd want to!), but to take something to the oven and walk to the table with it they protect you from the heat. I also have a silicone "pot holder" (can't think of the name of it, but it is circular), which will keep the heat from your hands very well, but it is slightly less flexible than the gloves.

yes Fahrenheit. I need good mitts for taking out a dutch oven out of the oven. Pizza and some breads bake at 500 degrees and up.

I need the extra length , since I am short and my arms tend to hit the oven rack even with the rack pulled out. I need the mitts for the dutch oven , that is a heavy pot .

Hey, 1000 posts in a month isn't impossible. I did it at another board but it's too embarassing to say what we were talking about.

For people in the US 550 isn't too bad since it's Fahrenheit. The "ov-glove" at WalMart actually really works well. Expensive but it works. I have the good fortune of living in NASCAR country and we have a few shops that sell "pit crew" cloves that resist heat like crazy.

hmm wonder if the Nascar shop near me has them? I live near the racetrack in Pa. , well about 1/2 hr. , is that near? When I bought my dutch oven, I didn't think to look for oven mitts, duh. I had to use 3 layers of pot holders to lift out the dutchoven from the oven.

I'm hoping I can still find my "hooky thing" when I make that bread tomorrow.
