While not our top selection, these high heat gloves still performed well.
The 100 percent silicone Ekogrips BBQ Oven Gloves come in One-Size-Fits-Most (for hands 7" to 9.5" long), L/XL (for hands 9" to 11" long), and XXL (for hands 13+" long).
They are all approximately 6" wide and have a unique pattern of silicone bumps or buttons on the outside shaped like flames. On the inside, there are round bumps on the bottom 1/3 of the sleeve, which is probably what they are referring to in ads that say the gloves are "insulated," while the inside of the palm and fingers is smooth.
Unlike other similar gloves, the webbing between the fingers is reinforced to prevent tearing. The silicone material is FDA-approved and BPA-free and the gloves are reputed to be stain resistant. I found them very uncomfortable, and my hands got very sweaty very quickly while handling some pots, a cast-iron skillet, several roasts, a chicken, and a hot bbq grill. I did pick up some charcoal briquets too, but wouldn't make this a regular practice. I did use the gloves with tongs, awkwardly, but never was successful at picking up or using a small paring knife. They are rated safe to 425ºF and can be washed by hand or tossed in the dishwasher then hung to dry. They come with a lifetime replacement, "no questions asked" warranty.
Hot cast iron test. 59 seconds.
Dexterity. They are okay for heat protection but are awkward to use unless with large objects or bbq meats.
Comfort. With your bare skin against silicone, they tend to get sticky and sweaty easily. If these were lined, they would have received a silver medal.
