Description

The full silicone design can be a bit bulky, though. One tester noted that the shape of these can feel a bit awkward at first, but eventually you'll get used to it. The tip of the mitt can be challenging to control, and there's some risk of dipping into the food. However, since the outer shell is entirely silicone, it can easily be wiped clean or even washed in the dishwasher. We also loved that the inner cotton lining was removable and machine washable. Our testers started with a set of 23 oven mitts. To test heat resistance, testers evaluated each mitt's performance on things like grabbing hot pans, baking dishes, and cast irons out of the oven. They assessed each mitt on how long they could hold each hot item, how comfortable it was to use the mitt, and the flexibility of the material. At the end of the assessment, testers were asked to rate each mitt on its overall performance, design, ease of cleaning, and value. Of course, that extra protection and grip typically comes with a little extra on the price tag. If you’re a traditionalist, there’s nothing wrong with the old-school “quilted” style oven mitts, which are typically made with cotton or a polyester blend. Newer mitts in this style are usually treated with some kind of flame-retardant coating for extra protection. They’re also more flexible than fully silicone mitts, which can make all the difference if you’re used to the feel.

Most professional chefs will say yes, but it's just not the safest option. Towels can be too thin and require a few folds to insulate appropriately, making it difficult to get a good grip leading to a higher chance of dropping. They can also dangle and burn or catch fire on a wayward corner. But the number one reason why you should avoid using a towel as an oven mitt is steam. The Mastrad Silicone and Cotton Mitt is the perfect marriage of silicone and cotton — it's a silicone outer shell with a removable cotton interior. The outer silicone shell is flexible and allows for a good grip, especially the small grooves on the inner portion of the tip of the glove. Well-designed silicone mitts can also be a lot better at gripping heavy pots and pans. That’s why you might find oven mitts with a “tread” pattern on the palm, which makes it easier to hold onto that pot roast.

Overall Take

The oven mitt is such a simple piece of fabric, but it’s likely one of the most essential items you own. In most kitchens, it can seem like this pair of heat-resistant gloves just sprouts out of the drawer when you move in, ready to protect your hands from blisters — though they’re more likely passed down from a relative or roommate. But just try and cook without them and you’ll never take them for granted again. If you’re looking for a new oven mitt after decades of using Grandma’s old ones, you’ll be happy to find there have been some tweaks to the design over the years. Most notably, you’ll find that many modern mitts are made from silicone, at least on the exterior. This is an upgrade from the traditional cotton or polyester oven mitt in a few different ways.

However, our testers raved about the glove style. One tester said, "These gloves are great for tasks that require a sure grip — like flipping hot dogs, grabbing shallow dishes, and handling hot potatoes." Regular oven mitts can be cumbersome, but since these have individual fingers and silicone grips on both sides, it's like having heat-proof hands with extra grip, giving you superior control. Some oven mitts are meant for indoor oven use, but many specialized mitts and gloves are on the market made specifically for grilling and barbecuing. Some oven mitts designed for indoor use just can't hold up to the conditions of outdoor cooking and aren't a safe choice. Since most outdoor cooking methods deal with open flames and extremely high heat, buying mitts made with this in mind will give you the performance and safety you're looking for. Every item in the kitchen can be unsafe when not used properly, and silicone oven mitts are no exception. Silicone can get extremely slippery if it gets wet or greasy, so like all kitchen items, responsible use and attention to surroundings are of the utmost importance. So long as they're used safely and for their intended purpose, silicone can be safe. It's an excellent insulator and a terrible conductor of heat, so it's one of the best materials for oven mitts. We loved the Big Red House Heat-Resistant Oven Mitts best because of their high thermal capacity and exceptional grip. If grilling is more your speed, you'll love the Grill Heat Aid Extreme Heat Resistant Grill Gloves for the freedom you have with the glove style combined with their high heat resistance.

Our Top Picks

Although this test paints a very clear picture of the insulation quality and the burn resistance of the materials used in the mitts, top-performing products protected the hand for unrealistically long periods. In the case of Big Red House, it was 41 seconds! If you're holding a 500º F pan for that long, it's fair to say that something has gone wrong. That said, we think that any mitt protecting you for 20 seconds or so at this temperature is more than adequate for home kitchen applications. So, for you bakers out there, you can put the All-Clad and HOMWE on your shortlist. Dexterity The LoveU. Silicone gloves are unique oven gloves that offer decent heat protection, superb grip, and delightful dexterity. Their exterior is comprised completely of silicone, making them easy to clean since silicone is naturally resistant to liquids or stain-causing oils. We found these gloves' grippy nature to be quite useful when handling the small ears of pie dishes, removing pyrex and cast iron lids, or cranking open tight jar lids. Finally, these gloves are available in two size options — one size fits most and L/XL — to accommodate a range of users.

Our review analysis consists of 5 metrics that, when met, make for a high-quality mitt. Specifically, these are dexterity, insulation, donning/doffing, sizing, and construction/durability. Discussed below are the details of these evaluations, as well as the products that performed well in each metric. Insulation Grilling and barbecuing can require temperatures twice as high as your regular oven, so grilling gloves with extra-high heat resistance are necessary. This pair from Grill Heat Aid is safe up to 1,472 degrees Fahrenheit, but with high grilling temperatures, that's ambient heat. While we didn't feel like these worked as well when holding hot pan handles and grabbing trays out of the oven, that's not what they're made for.

Analysis and Test Results

The grip on these mitts was also impressive; our testers said the glove was never too hot to handle — even after a full minute of holding a hot tray. However, the thumb felt inflexible to our testers, who noted that due to the stiff thumb of the mitt, it took a little finagling to get a grip on a shallow baking pan.
