Suede baking mitten
As I bought a la cloche and I really do not like burning myself, what do you think of these?

Suede Baking Mitten, 17," 1 Pair, Gloves, Mittens

Are they sufficient and can you get a good enough grip with them?

Keep in mind that I am left-handed.

What else would you recommend thanks!!!!

Welding gloves. Get 'em slightly large for easy on, easy off.

They look nice but having never used them couldn't comment on how good they are. They are similar to a set I have here that I do like real well. And I have another set of gloves that only covers to the wrist that are all cloth and have a superior grip, but they don't cover as far down the arm and they don't cover as high a heat. IE I take something out of the oven, I got a minute tops before the heat comes thru to my hand.
So I guess in my experience I expect to give up some grip in exchange for better heating protection.

I guess I would have to go somewhere to try them on. I have long fingers.

Many things I am willing to buy thru the Internet, but things that have to 'fit' on me I prefer to be able to try on first.

What about these:
Kevlar Oven Mitt

Well, they don't look the part but it does say they protect up to 540 degrees although that protection does end at the wrists.
Still, if they do what they say, they would provide much more dexterity.

Those look nice. They would look a little bit nicer with higher cuffs, though.

Maverick2272 01-08-2009 10:40 PM

Same thing I was thinking, higher cuffs and they would be perfect.

I'd go with the Kevlar first, but that's just me. Kevlar is good stuff.

I prefer gloves over mitts because I have more "grip" control.
