Purchased a pair of the Le Chef Ultra-flex Silicone Padded Kitchen Oven Mitts as a gift but extremely disappointed when I opened the package to discover a tag attached to the mitts stating that they are only effective to 425 degrees. My recollection at the time of ordering was a higher temperature, so I logged back onto Overstock.com to check. Sure enough, the description stated the the mitts are safe to 485 degrees. To me, that 60 degrees is the difference between a high quality, high temperature silicone oven mitt and one that is not as high a quality nor a high temperature oven mitt. To say the least, I am disappointed with Overstock.com to have listed important inaccurate information for this item, and though the price was low, I'm not certain I would have ordered this item had I known then what I know now.
These mitts live up to the description and fit well. However, I am just too skittish when using these because I am now supper conscious about avoiding the heat elements, which I should be (LOL); just more than I am with cloth oven mitts. My last review of this item was 12-20-2015. Since that time, I have regularly used these mitts and have had no burns or mishaps. I am amazed at how secure these feel when handling even heavy and awkward hot dishes. I also love how I can simply run theses under the faucet while still wearing them if I need to rinse off any debris. The really cool thing for me is not having to discard oven mitts like I used to do the old fashioned cloth oven mitts due to scorched spots that become thin and hot, and due to shrinkage after washing. This is another one of those great purchases. Thank you very much!
These oven mitts are a beautiful bright red color. I was surprised that they were not thicker on the hand portion. I was taking something out of the oven that had been baking at 400 degrees. I did not get burnt but I could feel the heat alot more than my cloth oven mitts. Probably would not buy them again.
I love these silicone oven mitts! They are comfortable on my hands. The pans feel secure as I remove them from the oven because the mitts have a design imprinted into the silicone to help the grip be strong and secure. They are easy to wipe clean. I recommend them without reservation.
This is my first time trying silicone mitts. Wow! I'll never go back to cloth mitts. These work beautifully, no heat radiating through the mitt. I've taken dishes out of a 400 degree oven and the mitts protected my hands perfectly. Very good purchase.
I have had these for a few years and I have no complaints. they work well to protect your hands and arms when retrieving hot items from the oven. these oven mitts are also flexible enough to be able to grab things as well. they've held up nicely with no apparent wear & tear (to be expected of an oven mitt). you can also easily clean these with soap& water if food gets on them, unlike cloth mitts
Easy to grip pans and heat resistant.
These silicone gloves are lined with breathable fabric so you don't get sweaty hands!! You feel no heat inside these mitts as you pick up just-out-of-the-oven pans. They are not so flexible! They come in colors to go with your kitchen decor. I ordered mine in black; to go with my black and white kitchen. You'll really love 'em!!
These are the best oven mitts I have purchased in a long time. They fit very well and keep you from burning your hands. The price was right and they are lined for better fit. I am very pleased with these oven mitts.
I feel protected when taking things out of the oven when I use my mitt
I am very pleased with these mitts. The red color was just as depicted. I knew the mitts were lined, which was important to me because I didn't want to feel as if my hands were encased in plastic, I didn't expect them to be so comfy. They feel almost pillowy once you put them on. They have worked well so far and done their job. There was one instance where I felt heat in handling a baking sheet and should not have (the temp was 350 degrees), I think the pan was resting on a side of my finger. Once I adjusted the pan to rest on the ball of my finger instead of against the side, I didn't feel the heat anymore. Was a little disappointed in that. Maybe the lining is not as thick on the sides? Any way, I am happy with the purchase and would recommend it to others.
I bought these mitts for both our house and our boat. They're great, and they are lined, so if my hands are damp, the heat doesn't transfer and burn me. Definitely recommend.
These mitts work great. I was hesitant to buy silicone mitts but my son highly recommended them. Very satisfied
These aren't "just" oven mitts, they are also great for removing steaming items (i.e., lobster) from pots.
Exactly what I was looking for. Great Mitt Set.
I have to admit that I was very skeptical about purchasing silicone oven Mitts. I was pleasantly surprised to find the quality to be great. I bought these as a gift for my husband for Christmas so I have not used them yet, but I am sure they will work great
I love these Silicone oven mitts, I used them for my daily cooking and outside on the bar-be-que grill
I use these mitts multiple times every day. That are thick and comfortable and grip very well. They easily wipe clean and look as new as the day I bought them. My kitchen has brightly colored accents and the bright blue and red fit right in.
These are top of the line oven mitts.
Very thick and heavy oven mitts. Love the color red.
