These high heat gloves are great for handling larger cuts of meat on the grill but picking up smaller items is difficult.
Arres XL BBQ Grilling Gloves come in two sizes: extra-large (13″ long and 6.5″ wide) and regular (9.5″ long x 7″ wide), are available in black only.
They are constructed of a thick silicone material, and thus are not that dexterous. Plus, there is no inside cloth layer so they are very difficult to put on or “sticky” if your hands are wet or moist, much like the thin plastic gloves widely used for sanitation. Once the gloves are on, if you sweat at all, or your hands are moist or greasy, they are uncomfortable and your hand and fingers can stick to the inside.
There is a different pattern on the palm than on the back of the gloves, which purportedly makes them non-slip but in reality makes using tongs and picking up and using a small paring knife difficult. f the knife is slippery, it is almost impossible to pick it up and use it. Despite the dexterity drawbacks, these thick gloves are good for handling large items such as pork roasts and whole chickens, can tolerate hot grease from a deep fryer and boiling water, and they are okay to pick up hot pans, grills or pots. But if the item you are picking up is small, you’d be better off using tongs. These gloves can be hand washed or tossed in a dishwasher and dry quickly. The gloves carry a “Risk-Free Lifetime 100% Money Back Guarantee.”

Dexterity. They fail in this category, as the gloves are too awkward to use on anything but large objects and roasts
Comfort. With your bare skin against silicone, the gloves tend to get sticky and uncomfortable. If they were lined, they would have scored higher.
