Victorinox (Ansi 9) Saf.T.Gard Stainless Steel Mesh Glove Review

This cut resistant glove looks and feels like armor.

Victorinox (Ansi 9) Saf.T.Gard Stainless Steel Mesh Glove will conduct electricity and will not withstand the force of power driven blades, saws and tools. It can, however, make direct contact with food products and can be cleaned with chemicals commonly used for food processing equipment.

An ambidextrous glove, it can also be repaired and reconditioned by authorized service centers. For claims made within 5 days of purchase, Victorinox will replace the glove free of charge or refund the purchase price. This glove earned ANSI’s highest level of cut and puncture protection (9). Available in XS, S, M, L and XL. Sold individually, not in pairs. Expensive.

Protection and Performance

  • Back-of-hand protection – No penetration
  • Cut protection in palm area – No penetration
  • Finger protection – No penetration
  • Puncture protection – No penetration
  • Durability – Extremely durable, and should last for years

Grip

  • Wet – Very good
  • Greasy – Slightly slippery, like wearing tire chains on your hand
  • Consistency – Can be a tiny bit slippery

Comfort/Fit

  • Overall comfort – Comfortable, if a bit like medieval armor (some people wear a cotton glove inside, while others suggest nitrile gloves over the outside)
  • Overall fit – Large, so order one size smaller than you normally would for a more snug fit
  • Dexterity – No loss of dexterity, but a tiny bit awkward until you get used to them (an inner cotton glove improves the feel

GrillGrates Take Gas Grills To The Infrared Zone


GrillGrates(TM) amplify heat, prevent flareups, make flipping foods easier, kill hotspots, flip over to make a fine griddle, and can be easily moved from one grill to another. You can even throw wood chips, pellets, or sawdust between the rails and deliver a quick burst of smoke.

Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?


The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker


This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.
