Pit Mitt Pro Heat Resistant Gloves Reviewed

Share on:
Pit Mitt grilling gloves

These gloves offer protection from the heat but aren’t made for handling food.

Like other fabric gloves, the Pit Mitt Pro Heat Resistant Gloves can only be used on dry items and therefore cannot be used to handle food.

Once they are wet, you can get burned or scalded. However, with dry items, they are said to be heat safe up to 450°F. These gloves have a soft cotton lining and use Aramid Fibers (used in aerospace and military applications) in the outer fabric layer.

Like others in this genre, the exterior sports a design of silicone lines. The gloves are 12.9″ long, which is long enough to protect the wrist and lower arms. Our moderator Spinaker says “I have put The Pit Mitt through the BBQ wringer. I have grabbed burning logs, hot grates, cast iron pans, griddles, grill pans, Dutch oven, etc. you name it. You can still burn yourself but I can hold a cast iron pan in my gloved hand for about 20 seconds when I take it out of a 450°F oven.”

Heat resistance. 25 seconds

Dexterity. Took some effort to use tongs and a small paring knife

Comfort. Comfortable but felt a bit like a pot holder with fingers

2) Try to post your question to the appropriate page.

3) Tell us everything we need to know to help such as the type of cooker and thermometer. Dial thermometers are often off by as much as 50°F so if you are not using a good digital thermometer we probably can’t help you with time and temp questions. Please read this article about thermometers.
