We've had these oven mitts for about a year now, and we're both more-or-less pretty happy with them. I mostly just use them for when I bake cookies and pizzas, which I feel is pretty representative of your typical baking usage. When it comes to oven mitts, I have a low bar for satisfaction: do they fit and do they keep my hands cool? In this case, they do.
My spouse uses them quite a bit more extensively than I do; she bakes nearly every single day and uses them for handling a lot of cast-iron cookware. Her biggest complaint is that the shape and silicon coating makes it difficult to use them with a natural thumb motion. To clarify, it's easy to move your thumb into your hand (i.e. thumb touching the side of your index finger), but difficult to move your thumb across your palm (ie, thumb touching pinky). As such, it's not the best for stove-top usage (gripping handles) or for things like 9"x13"x2" pans where you need to get your thumb around the top for a good grip.
Still, they're perfectly serviceable and after a year of hard usage, they don't show any sign of fraying or having the silicone coating wearing off - which is more than you can say for your average inexpensive oven mitt.
I just bought a third one to replace the old one with the most wear and tear. They've changed the styling just a bit. The new one is a bit longer than the old ones and the interior padding seems to be more substantial. So, what was an excellent product before seems to be even better now.
We finally decided to replace them when we had family over cooking Christmas cookies and someone almost burnt their hand. They weren't in the loop about our holes & properly briefed on how to adjust for them. Luckily they saw their hand through the thing and realized there was a slight problem. I needed to spend a few more bucks to get free super saver shipping one night, so after 30-minutes of trying to think of something we needed I thought of oven mitts.
Fourty-five minutes later (who knew there was so much to learn about oven mitts?) I settled on this item because of the great reviews. I only purchased one in case we we didn't feel it was a good value. I'm back on tonight, almost 2-months later, to purchase the matching glove. My husband is happy (he does the cooking - I burn myself with or without a hole-less glove), which means we're all happy.
Happy oven mitt shopping everyone!
