On the exterior, the Grill Beast heat resistant BBQ and grilling cooking gloves are constructed of a thick fabric layer of 1313 Aramid (a Kevlar fiber) covered with a design of silicone patches, and on the inside they are lined with polyester (45%) and cotton (55%).
The manufacturer claims that the gloves are heat safe to 662°F. The gloves are 12″ long, heavy in weight, and tend to get hot inside due to the thick insulation. They are machine washable and have a 100% money back guarantee and lifetime warranty. Pitmaster Club member Ovi-Dan comments, “I’ve had a pair of Grill Beast gloves for more than a year and I really like them. I’ve been able to move lit coals around. While that impresses friends I rarely need to do that. But I can move the rebar from my Pit Barrel Cooker without the glove heating up like my regular BBQ mitts did. Also, I like it being a glove vs. a mitt. They are great gloves for moving hot things. What they are not is waterproof.”
Heat resistance. 25 seconds
Dexterity. Took some effort to use tongs and a small paring knife
Comfort. Comfortable but slightly tight like a pair of thick winter wool gloves
