Very nice looking, but not that heatproof
on 8 October 2013
I had a very old pair of cream coloured with blue edging gloves that were looking a bit manky (brown stains from various casseroles wouldn't wash out), and with a kitchen refurb giving a lot of black and stainless steel, opted for these black Cooksmart gloves.
They look nice, but they are nothing like as heatproof as my old ones. They are padded, but not that thick, at the hand part, and when I was taking a pyrex dish out of the oven last night, for the first time using them since purchase, I could really feel the heat coming through in comparison to the old ones.
I don't know whether my old ones had some extra heatproof stuff hidden between the fabric layers, but these new ones let in way too much heat for my liking and I wouldn't feel happy with them.
The search continues.
