Although the glove looks like some sort of metal mesh in the photo, it is actually a synthetic knitted fibre which stretches to fit most people's hands. I was impressed with it on first use -- it really does protect your fingers from kitchen tools, especially mandolines, which are notorious for their sharpness. Regular use has borne out how useful this is, compared to much heavier, professional rubber gauntlets which cost a lot more and are much less practical for the home cook

This has become a real standby in my kitchen, but there are a couple of important details to bear in mind if you decide to use one of these.

1. It is designed to protect from small, smooth blades like mandolines -- cut resistant, not cut proof -- and will not offer the same protection from serrated blades. Serrated blades will quickly fray the fabric.

2. Don't expect the glove to protect you from a direct cut with really big, heavy knife. Electric slicing machines, electric carving knives and other motorized blades will also quickly slice through the material. Don't be any less careful when wearing this glove than you would be with bare hands! Don't hurry where chopping and slicing are concerned!

3. If you have really big hands, and the fabric is stretched very thin, the glove is much more vulnerable to being cut.

4. Don't put the glove in a tumble dryer after washing -- it will shrink and weaken the fibres. Drip dry only.

5. If the glove gets hard use, it will eventually fray and unravel -- get a new one at this point, as your precious fingers will no longer be adequately protected.

With these common-sense precautions, a highly-recommended kitchen accessory!

Although the packaging says that it is only "cut resistant" and not "cut proof," the glove certainly provides protection against those accidental (and often nasty) cuts and bruises by mandolines and graters. I would give five stars were it not for the rather high price (in view of hygiene, it is ideal to have multiple gloves).

This item makes using a mandolin a much more pleasant experience, I'm never gonna be happy about whizzing my fingers back and forth near a blade as sharp as a mandolin but at least with this I wont lop off a finger. Recommended.

This glove has turned using my mandoline into a pleasure, rather than an exercise in terror and rendering most dishes not suitable for vegetarians. Havent tried washing it yet

Not much use. Whilst it says it's for zesters and graters it also says "We recommend that you use this glove for all your food preparation requiring sharp tools. ... The benefit comes in the case of accidental contact with a sharp edge. It may still damage the glove, just not your hand." Well, of course the fingertips in gloves never fit tight, so when the fingertip flops about and then gets caught on a sharp edge that the finger was comfortably missing, it immediately cuts a big hole, thus rendering the glove useless for the future, since the fingertip is what needs protection in general. Therefore this seems to be slightly worse than useless - conferring a sense of protection which is largely false; it's likely to get ruined even when the sharp-edged tools are being used safely and correctly and then can never be used again. Pity, as it was a present I gave. Absolutely not a substitute for a chainmail glove, even though Amazon puts it first in the results if that's the search term you use!

I've been put on blood thinners so am especially worried about any cuts I might sustain while in the kitchen. I managed to grate my thumb and that was the last straw!

This product works nicely. It's a bit expensive, if I'm honest, but it does the job.

I recently bought a mandolin and literally shredded the tips of the fingers on my right hand. The mandolin is really useful and fun to use, but oh, so sharp! There is a finger guard but it's not useful if you try to slice the little bits. This is when I found the microplane glove on Amazon and I haven't looked back. It's absolutely perfect for mandolin cutting and solves the problem of trying to slice the little bits that won't fit under the guard. The glove is surprisingly thin and soft and easy to work with and seems all but immune to the sharp blades. No more cuts!

when you cut and chop a lot in kitchen - occasionally you can cut yourself. with this glove - your hands are safe. it also protects your fingertips when using grater. no cuts at all. finally!
have tried this glove while openind oysters - good work. no slipping, and no occasional cuts from oyster knife.

as item described - the glove will not protect from the direct cutting with sharp knife. never tried - can not tell.
also had no chanse to try the glove with fish and fillet knife. may be fillet knife is more dangerous to the glove. and no idea about washing after filleting the fish. but after opening oysters - the smell was totally gone with one usual wash in the washing mashine.

good item. would recommend.
