How many times have you tried to pull the probe out of your meat either forgetting how hot it is and burning yourself, or knowing it’s hot and trying to do some voodoo magic with a pair of tongs and a fork? Clearly I have done that too many times, which is why I decided to finally invest in a pair of high heat gloves. Full disclosure, I’m an Amazon junky, I make sure I get my money’s worth from my Prime membership, so the first and only place I looked for gloves was Amazon. I am sure there are a ton of great options on the market, but today I am going to talk specifically about the Man Law BBQ Protective/Wearable/Outdoor Gear Series High Heat Food Grade Silicone Gloves, phew that was a mouthful!
According to the company these gloves can withstand head up to 572 degrees Fahrenheit. They are made of food safe silicone and can be used indoors and out. So far I have used them to pull probes out of meat right after they finished cooking, pick up meat (like a pork butt) straight off the grill, and remove hot grill grates. The only time I felt even a hint of heat was when I removed the grill grates, and when I did that I had just turned the grill off which had been set at 450 so it was HOT. I wanted to test out how well they worked, so I that that would be a good idea. For testing purposes it was, but for common sense purposes, not so much.
Overall, I really like the gloves. They are lined on the inside so they are pretty comfortable. The silicone is nice and grippy, so I don’t feel like anything is going to slip out of my hands. Cleaning was a breeze, just run under some warm water with soap and they were good as new. You won’t get a real tactile feel when using them because they are thick, so if that is what you are looking for, then these might not be for you. However, if you are looking for a solid pair of gloves to protect you from the heat when you need to do things like remove a probe, pick up hot meat, or even hot grill grates, than I would say give these a try. At $29.99, the price isn’t outrageous and after several weeks of pretty heavy use, they seem to be holding up really well. If Amazon is not your thing, you can find these on their website www.manlawbbq.com.
