Stiff and not super well insulated
on January 6, 2015
These gloves were a bit of a disappointment to me. They're extremely stiff which limits your dexterity, and they don't really protect against heat for very long. I bought them to take larger cuts of meat off my smoker where a spatula or grill tool just wouldn't cut it - such as briskets, pork shoulders, etc. I also had hopes of using these to pull/shred pork from the shoulders, however the fingers are just way too stiff and the shiny material gets too slippery to use these. They have enough heat protection to grab a cut of meat and move it to a foil pan, but other than that, they start getting hot quickly. Perhaps this is a case of there may not be anything better out there, I don't know - this was the first pair I've bought, but I would not buy them again.
