These are a must-have item if you use a smoker and need to pick up, or move food without burning your hands. I've also found them to be very helpful when shredding pork (for pulled pork). Makes the process much easier and comfortable.

Also works well when not using the BBQ for things such pulling meat off of bones when making soup, or shredding boiled chicken. You do need to exercise some care -- the gloves can be slippery when dealing with hot food, especially if it is greasy.

The gloves are made of a thick, heat resistant material that works very well for handling food. They are NOT, however, meant for high temperature uses, such as taking a metal pan out of a hot oven. Think of them as potholders for food items - something to keep your hands from burning when handling hot food.

The fingers are a bit stiff, but allow for decent mobility. I had no problems holding a knife or using a fork to pull pork while wearing them. They extend well up your forearms to keep grease splatters at bay (they are about 13.5 inches from fingertip to bottom edge). Easy to wash. I've only used them a few times so far, so I can't attest to how long they will last, but they seem pretty sturdy, and should last for some time provided they are cared for.

I take a mens size XL glove, and these fit fine (a bit snug, but very workable).

Very good price - much less expensive than other hot food handling gloves I've seen. Highly recommend.

Update: June 2011 -- been using these for a few months and continue to be very impressed. I've been able to hand carry items from the smoker into the house (a few minute journey) without any problem. Hands get a bit warm but not at all uncomfortable. Washing them is a breeze -- just keep them on your hands, squirt on some dish soap, and wash your "hands." No problems with durability as of yet.

I bought these gloves to handle fried turkey, and noticed while putting the turkey in brine, I felt moisture in one. When actually carving the turkey I found out why when hot oil seeped through. Flexing and examining them more closely, I found both gloves had cracks in the silicone? shell that covers a layer of fabric. Luckily, I wasn't burnt, but I can't give them a favorable review based on my experience with them.

First off, I bought these gloves for an application which they technically weren't specified for. I bought them to use on a bbq - specifically to turn metal skewers; but I got these vs. leather grilling gloves as I thought they would be easier to clean when sauce got on them.
They are very easy to clean but they shouldn't touch hot metal, they will start to melt and your fingers will feel it.
Fine for just grabbing meat off the grill (again, avoid the metal... obviously)
I'd give them 4.5 stars, they are a great product for the price.

I purchased these carving gloves because I smoke a lot of pork butt (it's more common than you might think, except in California where they've outlawed everything but marijuana). These gloves work great for pulling the pork apart. They are water proof so they don't get saturated with grease or water and they are insulated.

Two issues I have that prevent me from giving this item a 5 star review: 1) I have large hands and "one size fits all" doesn't normally fit me. While these do stretch a bit, thus allowing my fat hands to fit inside, I would like for them to be a bit larger. 2) While they are heat resistant, holding something really hot for more than a few moments becomes uncomfortable.

All in all, though, they fit the bill well. I've used them to handle deep fried turkey fresh out of the frying oil, smoked pork butt, and even used them to remove a plumb pudding mold from a pot of boiling water (suprise bonus use for them).

Well made and a quality product. Just a little on the bulky side for what I was looking for. These would be great for handling very hot foods such as whole chickens or turkeys direct from the BBQ or other source of heat. I used them for the turkey when we did a deep fry bird a few months ago and they worked just fine for that. Well insulated and should last for a good long time. They might be just a little large for most women so be sure to pay attention to the size when ordering...

I purchased these Butterball Carving Gloves for my husband when I bought his electric indoor turkey fryer. These gloves work great! They are pliabe enough that you can grip small items (such as the temp control knob) yet they do a great job protecting your hands from heat and splattering grease. My husband has large hands and beefy arms, yet these gloves fit him and came halfway up his forearm, so even when he reaches to the back of the grill or inside his turkey fryer, his arms are still protected. Great product that I would highly recommend!

I wear a size large in gloves and these gloves fit perfect. Glad I bought them with the Butterball Turkey Fryer. Need them to flip basket over to pull bird out. I may try and wrap the bird with it's string it comes with to see if that would aid in lifting the bird out of fryer basket.
No heat transfer that I felt when holding the bird, granted it sat in the basket for 15 minutes before I started the carving.
I Recommend them.

A little expensive. Wish they came in a smaller size.
But overall a great product worked as well or better than expected.
Couldn't cut up the roast pig as efficient without out them.

Purchased two pair to use daily handling smoked meats. After 2-3 weeks, gloves became so rigid they couldn't be used - had to toss. Now looking for higher quality product.
