They come in three sizes, are said to be heat-resistant up to 572°F, and are 13″ in length. The gloves are lined with 100% rayon/cotton for a comfortable feel, and the exterior is constructed of food rated silicone. While the sleeves of the gloves are smooth and easily cleaned, the fingers and palms have thick ridges to help hold items, and the ridges easily trap food and grease. They can be hand washed with soap and water and laid out to dry.
