As Seen On TV: The Ove Glove Review

I love my Ove Glove.  I really do.  See:

Hi.Hi.


Yep.  That's me, that's the Ove Glove, and that's a blob of leftover red beans & rice that I used as stunt food for the picture.

And though it is truly a cold pan of stunt food, I can attest with glee that the Ove Glove works.  Gone are the days of wrapping pads around insanely hot pots and pans, hoping to God that you don't lose your grip and fry your feet.  The Ove Glove allows you a much better grip.  And if you have two (as I do), even better-particularly if you're dealing with a heavy, two-handled pan.


These little suckers can take up to 480 degrees of heat-two times the temperature of boiling water.  This is primarily due to the makeup of the outer layer of the glove.  Made of Kevlar and Nomex (the same materials used to protect firefighters.  The inside of the glove is composed of cotton fibers, making them quite comfortable-more like winter gloves than gardening mitts.

They are machine washable-though I must confess that they don't come out as clean as I thought they would:

Yep--it's been washed recently...Yep--it's been washed recently...


Yeah, you can tell I use it quite a bit.  Just look at those burn stains on the fingers!  And I've noticed that they deteriorate a bit after repeated use and washing.  The heat resistance seems to diminish slightly over time.  But I don't think this is any different than your typical oven mitt that gets used frequently.

Indeed, the glove can be used for tasks other than cooking.  Changing a light bulb, for instance.

But it is in the culinary field where it truly shines.  One of my favorite uses for the Ove Glove is when I'm grilling.  The glove makes it very easy to simply lift the inferno hot grate from the grill to add more coals.  Or, as happens frequently to me, it comes in handy when I have to reach into the grill to retrieve that annoying piece of chicken that slips into the flames.

This thing isn't fireproof, however.  I wouldn't recommend getting drunk and showing your buddies the amazing flaming hand trick.  Lots of salve would be needed to fix that little stunt.

In these troubled times, it's truly nice to find a product that does what it's supposed to do.  And the Ove Glove lives up to the hype in this commercial:


You can get your own Ove Glove (or a set of two!) at Amazon.

 

If you own the Ove Glove, what do you think of it?
