I've had a bunch of oven mitts and hot pads over the years and I thought all were basically the same. And, I admit that shopping for grilling gloves and adding some to my to my Amazon shopping cart was something I regarded as a chore. I was wrong - it was not a chore, it was easy with the folks at Big Time BBQ and their shop on Amazon. The end result. I've come across a new favorite product!
There are several reasons why I really like my new Big Time BBQ brand Grilling Gloves. The first reason is kind of simple - but probably the biggest reason of all. The Big Time BBQ grilling gloves are... GLOVES! They are not mitts!
Gloves Not Mitts!
This may sound kind of simple. but the Grill Gloves from Big Time BBQ are actually gloves! They are not oven mitts. An oven mitt restricts movement to your thumb and the other four fingers working as one. The Big Time BBQ Grilling Gloves are designed with five fingers in mind.
You have complete independent finger control which means you can grasp, pull, lift, and flip hot stuff much better than you can with a bulky mitt. In addition you have better hand, and wrist control and movement. That's something that "mitt" style designs lack. Sounds simple - but when you're moving hot items around that drip hot grease and juice it's a wonderful thing to have more control.
Grilling, Kitchen, Baking, Canning, and Home Brewing
In my opinion the Big Time BBQ Grill Gloves are a must have for any grilling guru or barbecue pit-master. At the very least they would make a great gift to any weekend outdoor chef. The Grilling Gloves have five fingers which make for amazing versatility when compared to mitts. But here are several other reasons to grab a pair of these gloves. You can use with home canning and brewing beer where hot liquids are involved.
- Heat proof protections up to 425 degrees.
- Protection for fingers, hand, and upper wrist.
- Water tight, steam proof.
- Dishwasher safe - Made from Odorless Latex Free Food Grade Recyclable Silicone.
- Great for oven, outdoor cooking, kitchen, frying, grilling, barbecue.
- Confidently grab lobsters from boiling water
- Working with large items such as Boston butts, whole pigs, and more.
- Shucking hot corn off the grill.
- No more germs - Juices, sauces and marinades won't soak and stain like your old cotton mitts and become germ holders!
- Perfect for handling hot Pyrex dishes, bread pans, pizza stones, dutch ovens, cast iron skillets, and more.
- Gripping surface for tough lids.
The Bottom Line! Affordable and Useful!
The Big Time BBQ Silicone Grill Gloves are made with 100% FDA approved Food grade silicone. They are safer than any cotton mitt as they do not harbor any bacteria or germs as they can easily be and washed, cleaned, and sanitized. I think that they are the perfect addition to any kitchen or Grill Master's tool kit.
Plus - they are more than affordable, under $10 bucks, and shipping from the Big Time BBQ Amazon store is reduced greatly for Amazon Prime members. The bottom line for me is this - they work, they are affordable, and I don't get burned - with the price - or with hot food!
One side note: Be sure to check the other listings on Amazon that Big Time BBQ offers as they have a bundled gift pack that feature the Grill Gloves as well as a few other cool grilling and barbecue products. With Christmas and Father's Day rolling around every year you can bet that the Big Time BBQ products would make for great gifts.
