When I cook a turkey, it's usually a large bird, 24 lb. or better. I like leftovers! Consequently, I don't think the wooden spoon method would work.

When I roast a turkey in the oven, I start it breast down, and then turn it over for the breast to brown. As I don't want to poke holes in it for juices to run out, what I do is to cover my gloves with plastic bags, grab it, and turn it over. Even with the plastic bags, I find the gloves work better than mitts.

Right now I am using those silicone squares. They do the job, but I am not crazy about them. They actually do not protect against heat as much as I expected.

They are fine for just quick jobs, but it you were to pull a saute pan out of a hot oven and hold the handle with it for a short while then it would start to get hot right through the silicone.

That's what I'm talkin' about! I've wondered about those things! My leather gloves are pretty much the same, but at least they're leather gloves, know whut I mean?

What I do like about them though Kelly is that they double as trivits. As Alton would say, no single taskers

LOL! I love it! No single-taskers indeed, and I totally agree! I have used my gloves as trivets, but they make particularly lumpy and uneven ones.
