Heat resistant oven gloves with fingers

In a Rush? Here’s our number 1 choice!

Red Bomb BBQ Gloves

Available in men’s and women’s sizes, offering excellent heat protection to the highest levels, and made to a decent quality, these sensibly-priced oven gloves with fingers from Red Bomb are our number one choice from this list of 10.

 

We’ve all made the mistake of taking something out of a hot oven without wearing oven gloves, and it’s not a pleasant experience! Even that much-used substitute – the tea towel – is not sufficient and can still leave you with rather nasty burns.

Oven gloves are not a new idea. It is widely touted, as I’m sure you’re fascinated to learn, that they were invented as long ago as 1870 by a gentleman in Austin, Texas, with the appropriate name of Earl Mitt. By all accounts, this story is untrue, which is a great pity! What we do know is that the ‘oven mitt’ was patented in the USA 1939. Notably, this design had fingers, so it is likely the influence for those we are going to review for you today. If you prefer the type without fingers, this is not the review for you!

While not an exciting product, heat-resistant oven gloves are a must for any kitchen – both domestic and commercial – so let’s not hang around, here are the top 10 heat-resistant oven gloves with fingers that you can buy today.

Heat resistant oven gloves with fingers (Our Top 10 Choices)

Dualeco Silicone Oven Gloves

We begin our list with this rather neat pair of oven gloves from Dualeco. There’s not a lot to say about a pair of gloves, so we will make sure that we cover the important bits in our reviews. This pair of gloves is made from cotton within, and covered with strong, durable and extremely heat-resistant silicone. Indeed, these gloves offer claimed resistance up to 500°C, which is impressive.

They are designed to be completely waterproof for added protection and safety, and the fingers are silicone coated for extra grip when handling hot pots and pans. They also feature a cuff a little over 3inches in length, which is there to protect your wrists and forearms. Available in black, orange and blue, this is a decent pair of gloves from a brand with plenty of experience in this area, and at a sensible price.

Pros:

  • Five-finger design
  • Silicone coating
  • Comfortable nylon lining
  • Up to 500°C protection (manufacturer claim)
  • Wrist protection

Cons:

  • Only in one size
  • Some customers report fingers too short

Dualeco BBQ Gloves

We should add here that Dualeco is a market-leading brand in oven gloves and other related products, so it’s no surprise we feature more than one in our list. This pair is a top quality five-fingered oven gloves, made from cotton lining with an outer heavy-duty aramid silicone coating. This provides more than adequate heat resistance, as well as excellent grip and waterproofing.

The cotton lining makes them easy to take off and put on, and there is a hook built-in for hanging them. They are also extremely grippy, so you are unlikely to drop anything. This pair features a cuff that is 4” long, providing excellent protection for the wrist and forearm. This pair of oven gloves also offers protection up to 500°C, and come in black in one size only, with some customer reviews stating they are a bit too big – but that will depend on the size of your hands!

Pros:

  • Known brand
  • Up to 500°C protection (manufacturer claim)
  • 4” cuff for protection
  • Silicone for excellent grip

Cons:

  • Only one size
  • Might be too big for some

ZhongSheng BHQ Oven Gloves

This brand is one that has a range of kitchen products and, while not exactly a household name, offers decent quality at sensible prices. Indeed, this pair of cotton-lined, aramid silicone coated oven gloves can be had with change from a tenner, so they are very good  value. They are designed for added grip from the silicone outer, are certified to standard EN407 – which is required in the UK – and are finished in red and white.

What else is there to know? Well, the sales blurb is big on them being able to withstand a ‘revolutionary’ 932 degrees, which initially seems a lot higher than the pair above, for example. However, that’s Fahrenheit, so you need to convert the figure and it comes out as – 500°C! Still, this is a good pair of gloves with the right attributes and at a great price, although again there are comments about short fingers.

Pros:

  • Cheap price
  • Silicone protection
  • Up to 500°C
  • Red or blue
  • Cotton lining

Cons:

  • Some customers have said the fingers are too short

Karrong Grilling Gloves

There’s a certain familiarity to these reviews in that they all feature a product that is very similar. This is no surprise as the job of a pair of oven gloves is very specific, so there will only be certain materials that can be used, and design features that can be necessarily incorporated. Thus, we come to another very similar product, this time from Karrong, but with one notable difference in detail to those reviewed so far.

This pair of gloves features a cotton lining, silicone outer, are very grippy and have a long cuff for wrist protection. They are priced at less than a tenner, which is great. So, what’s the difference? Well, the makers claim that these gloves can provide resistance up to a massive 800°C. However, they are sensible enough to state that this should be endured for more than 15seconds. We’re not going to recommend you try them out at that temperature, but otherwise they are a decent pair of oven gloves at a great price.

Pros:

  • Cheap price
  • Up to 800°C for limited period (manufacturer claim)
  • Silicone outer
  • Cotton liner

 

Cons:

  • Some comments about large size
  • Single size only

 

Medipaq Long Wrist Protection

This is a pair of oven gloves that look a little different to the rest. In fact, as they are available in cream and orange you could mistake them for a simple pair of outdoor gloves. They have a soft and comfortable cotton lining, and an aramid outer – that means a combination of materials such as Nomex and others that come together to provide the silicone protective layer – and are fitted with a very long cuff to protect the forearms.

What else can we say about this pair? There is one factor that needs mentioning, and it’s the claimed heat resistance protection. These gloves will – according to the maker – protect you at up to 350°C. That’s a bit lower than all of the above but when we think about it, are you likely to be cooking at a higher temperature? There have been reports that these are on the large size, but they are one-size-fits-all long oven gloves with fingers that do the job.

Pros:

  • Nice colour choice
  • Cotton liner
  • Aramid outer
  • Very long cuff

Cons:

  • Only 350°C protection
  • Size might be a problem for some

iToncs BBQ Grill Gloves

There is something very familiar about this pair of gloves branded iToncs, as they look remarkably similar to another pair we reviewed above. This pair is a top quality oven gloves pair with fingers, made from cotton lining with an outer heavy-duty aramid silicone coating. This provides more than adequate heat resistance, as well as excellent grip and waterproofing.

The cotton lining makes them easy to take off and put on, and there is a hook built-in for hanging them. They are also extremely grippy, so you are unlikely to drop anything. This pair features a cuff that is 4” long, providing excellent protection for the wrist and forearm. This pair of oven gloves also offers protection up to 500°C, and come in black in one size only, with some customer reviews stating they are a bit too big – but that will depend on the size of your hands!

Pros:

  • Cotton lining
  • Up to 500°C protection (manufacturer claim)
  • 4” cuff for protection
  • Silicone for excellent grip

Cons:

  • Only one size
  • Might be too big for some

 

Red Bomb BBQ Gloves

The finish of these Red Bomb oven gloves with fingers is a rather interesting black and white – if you happen to be a man! If you’re a woman, you need to buy the black and yellow pair, as they are sized differently. So far, this is the only pair on our list that has differentiated between the two, so that’s a positive. Otherwise, this is a typical pair of oven gloves with the usual cotton lining and aramid silicone coating for added heat resistance and protection.

This pair is interesting as it claims to offer protection – as with one we reviewed earlier – up to 800°C. In this case, the recommended time is 7-10seconds, but once again, we are not recommending you try this and it is specifically the manufacturers claim. Customer reviews are full of praise for this pair of gloves and they rate at -5-stars and while well-priced, we’re curious as to why the men’s pair should cost more than the women’s!

Pros:

  • Men’s and women’s sizes
  • Silicone outer
  • Cotton lining
  • Up to 800°C for a few seconds (manufacturer claim)
  • Good price

Cons:

  • Difficult to fault at the price, so none!

Bettlemory BBQ Gloves

This very typical pair of heat-resistant oven gloves with fingers for small hands and large – it’s another one-size-fits-all design – comes with all the usual attributes you would expect to find on a pair of such gloves. The silicone outer lining is there, and protects you up to a claimed 500°C, plus the cotton lining offers protection and ease of getting them on and off, and they are finished in utilitarian black.

They come as usual with a reasonably long cuff to protect your wrists and forearms, and are sensibly priced, too. In all fairness, these are pretty much exactly the same as around 70% of the gloves on this list in what they do, how they are made and what they look like – as well as how much they protect you – so it will come down to price, and these are pretty cheap.

Pros:

  • Cheap
  • Silicone protection
  • 500°C heat resistance
  • Cotton lining

Cons:

  • One size only
  • Might be too large for some

I-Live Extreme Heat Resistant

A standard pair of long oven gloves with fingers, this pair is a design pair of oven gloves with fingers, made from cotton lining with an outer heavy-duty aramid silicone coating. This provides more than adequate heat resistance, as well as excellent grip and waterproofing. Everything, in fact, that you would expect to find in a pair of gloves for this purpose.

The cotton lining makes them easy to take off and put on, and there is a hook built-in for hanging them. They are also extremely grippy, so you are unlikely to drop anything. This pair features a long cuff, providing excellent protection for the wrist and forearm. This pair of oven gloves also offers protection up to 500°C, and come in black in one size only, with a few comments among customers as to the size, which may be too large for some.

Pros:

  • Cheap
  • 500°C protection
  • Long cuff
  • Silicone outer
  • Cotton inside

Cons:

  • Described as ‘one size fits most’ which is surprisingly honest
  • May not fit some people!

SmartStore High Heat Protection Oven Gloves

Our final set of oven gloves is this pair, from SmartStore, and while they are certainly very cheap, and look OK, we do have some concerns. They are nicely made, and feature all the right materials including the cotton lining and silicon heat-resistant outer coating, and they do provide protection but – and in comparison to others on this list it’s a big but – only up to 250°C. That doesn’t make them very competitive except on price.

Also, they are a very simple design – that’s no bad thing – but are very short when we look at some of the gauntlet designs above, so are lacking protection anywhere beyond the wrists. For these reasons alone, while they are very cheap and do offer some protection, they don’t come with our recommendations, but the choice is ultimately yours!

Pros:

  • Very cheap
  • Cotton lined
  • Heat resistant
  • Comfortable

Cons:

  • Only up to 250° heat resistance
  • Short design
  • One size fits all

So, there you have our selection of 10 best oven gloves with fingers UK buyers can purchase right now. Before we go on to give you our conclusion, let’s have a look at a brief buyer’s guide, and the features you need to look out for.

Best Oven Gloves with Fingers Buyer’s Guide

Buying a pair of oven gloves may seem to be a perfectly simple transaction, but if you’re reading this review, you clearly want to know more – and we’re here to help you! There are several factors you need to consider when you are choosing the right silicone oven gloves with fingers, so let’s have a look at them.

Features to Look For

Heat Resistance

We need to be very careful here as this is a matter of safety, and as burns can be very dangerous, we need to stress a few things. First, any temperatures given in these reviews – usually the uppermost temperature that the manufacture claims the gloves will protect you to – are precisely that, the claims of the manufacturer. We trust they have tested their claims, but as we have not seen results of these tests, we cannot in any way state that the gloves will protect you to that level of heat.

Furthermore, what the manufacturers do not say – with one notable exception – is how long you can hold an item, at any temperature, without being burned. The list below comes from Red Bomb, the brand behind the Red Bomb BBQ Gloves reviewed among the above, and we believe it is important to show it here.

It shows the maximum recommended safe time you should hold an item while wearing their gloves at the temperatures listed, and it may be wise to use this as a guide for all the above gloves.

Temperatures are all in °C:

Temperature                Time in seconds

800°C                           7 to 10s

500°C                           12 to 15s

350°C                           16 to 18s

250°C                           21 to 23s

212°C                           up to 68 seconds

We recommend you try your best to keep the time your gloves are in contact with a hot item as short as possible, in order to minimise the risk of burns.

Size

Most of the above are one-size-fits-all gloves, and it is interesting that size is a common complaint – whether they are too large overall or the fingers are too short – among customers, so make sure you check for a pair that you are comfortable with.

Wrist Protection

This is a very important factor, as not all of the above have an extended cuff, a vital design feature that protects your wrists from the heat and, in some cases, the rest of your forearm too. We have mentioned in our reviews where cuffs are present and otherwise.

We could also mention the material used, but as all are aramid and silicon outers with cotton lining, there is no distinction, and as they are all within a few pounds of each other cost-wise, it’s also not a factor when buying a pair of these.

So, which would we recommend?

Conclusion

We are very surprised to find that most of the above – nine of them in fact – come as one-size-fits-all designs. While this is all very well, and keeps the cost down too, it does mean that these oven gloves may be uncomfortable for some people.

If that’s OK with you, then you have a choice of many, but we have to say the best oven gloves with fingers among this list are the Red Bomb BBQ Gloves. They come in men’s and women’s sizes – albeit at slightly different prices – offer excellent heat resistance, and the makers have even gone to the trouble of providing the time/heat table that we reproduced above. There’s a clear quality to them, and they are very sensibly priced with excellent customer reviews.

If you like to cook, minimise the cost of burns by buying yourself a good pair of oven gloves with fingers, you won’t regret it!
