Hi all. Well, I am really having a hard time finding a good oven mitt that is not too thin.. When I use the ones I have now, my fingers always get really warm when pulling a cookie sheet or anything else out of the oven. Just wondering, does anyone have any suggestions on good oven mitts where you arent likely to get burnt through it?? I appreciate any suggestions!

Jen

I have a couple of heat-proof silicone mitts. They work great, and offer wonderful protection from heat and burning.

I have also seen a couple versions of NoMex gloves, one called the "Ove Glove." I don't have one, as I haven't seen any longer arm versions, but they should work well. NoMex is used in industrial applications to prevent harm from fires. For instance, firemen and oil refinery workers wear it.

I bought my silicone mitts at Target (some time ago). I have seen these in most places that sell kitchen utensils. Wal-mart carries the Ove Glove.

I hope you find something that works well for you.

I recently bought a bright pink kitchen aid silicone type ones in Target I really like. I also have some good thick ones from Williams Sonoma that held up very well for a number of years. Are there any kitchen stores near you where you can go check out what they have?

I love my Pampered Chef mitts. I have purchased them on three separate occassions, as they do not come in a pair.

The pampered chef leather BBQ mitt with split finger is great for the oven. They're even washable.

I have an all silicone mitt and a silicone pad with fabric attached to make it a faux mitt, or you can just use it as a pad. I greatly prefer the latter becausee the all silicone mitt is very bulky and awkward.

But Nomex - !!!!!!!!! That sounds fabulous! I'm sure it's too much money, but whee, like racecar drivers have! I love it and I might have to get one for my dh.

The Nomex gloves I have seen cost around $11-$14. They are pricier than cheapie cotton ones, but not outrageously high (in my opinion.)

I got a pair of old fashioned fabric gloves about 10 years ago in a specialty kitchen store. They were $25 each! I got a bit of a shock when I went to pay because I expected them to be $25 for the pair, not sold by the individual glove. I think I'll have them until the day I die.

Although, I prefer the square pads over the mitts.
