Neither set of gloves were among our favorites among the high heat gloves tested.
The Mr. Bar-B-Q gloves and Steven Raichlen gloves are the least expensive gloves we tested and both appear to be from the same manufacturer.
Mr. Bar-B-Q’s gloves are shiny black (above) while Raichlen’s are shiny grey. Both are intended “For Food Handling Only and Not Intended for Hot Grills.” Both are 9.5″ in length, have a thin layer of insulation inside, and are said to be heat safe to 248°F. Although not intended for hot grill grates and pans, we put these gloves through the heat test anyway.
Heat resistance. 12 seconds and the gloves began to melt
Dexterity. No problem with tongs but a bit slippery with a knife
Comfort. Somewhat stiff, rubbery feel and slippery during use
Food handling. No problem and the gloves merely got warm
