I've had many substandard oven gloves over the years that were not fit for purpose. You would think that being somewhat heat proof would be a useful property for oven gloves to have but it is amazing how many are not! That certainly isn't a problem with these Master Class double oven gloves. You can stand there holding a cast iron casserole fresh from the oven and not begin to feel any noticeable heat for a considerable time. I found the silicone to be a little stiff at first, which wasn't a problem, then gradually becoming more flexible. There is a 100% cotton lining inside each glove, which gives a nice feel.
If you extend the gloves out, they stretch 95cm from tip to tip, with each silicone part of the glove being approximately 22cm from tip to heel. The gloves are easily large enough to prevent any burns to your hands from steam. The black inner material (90% polyester, 10% cotton) stretches 51cm. I believe that it is much more sensible to buy this pair of gloves than the very similar individual Kitchen Craft Master Class Seamless Silicone Oven Glove With having tried both as this pair of gloves is much better when it comes to handling things easily.
