Are you fond of grilling and barbecues? Are you satisfied with your kitchen gloves? Fed up with gloves that still burn your hands even though they’re supposed to protect them? Don’t like using pot holders? Then here are three barbecue gloves that will make barbecuing, grilling and your overall kitchen experience safer.
Gloves are supposed to protect your hands from the heat when you cook but sometimes, the gloves that we have in our kitchen are no good. Cloth mitts are a thing of the past and so are cloth pot holders, how many times have you burned yourself when using them? How many times has a pot spilled or slipped through your fingers? We live in a modern time so we must also upgrade not only our gadgets but our kitchen accessories as well, get rid of your smelly and stained gloves. Silicon, non-slip gloves are the way to go now.

Twice a month we have this family barbecue in the back of our home, I would want to replace my mittens with flexible, five fingered silicon gloves that will help me turn and handle the meat. With these Ekogrip gloves I can handle meat right off the grill. I can easily handle hot objects and food, I like how I can hold a whole chicken and have no problems holding while cutting it, no hassle like when you are using tongs, and this has really made my kitchen life easier.
This glove is a one size fits “most” but it fits my hands perfectly but I doubt they are meant for people with small hands or too big hands.

My wife also uses these gloves in the kitchen and she has nothing but praise for it and it has permanently replaced all the mittens and pot holders in the house. Gloves have a very firm grip and I haven’t experienced anything slip from me when I am using these. I also like that you can only feel minimum heat even when handling products right off the stove or broiler, I have done so several times so I can attest to that.
