It’s not fun when your oven glove catches fire. They tend to be bulky and bigger than your hand, so whenever you try to pick up a pan from the stove, they come dangerously close to the fire. I’ve never had one actually burn, but all the gloves I’ve ever used had black blotches from repeatedly smouldering.
The grabit oven glove caught my eyes because it seems to get rid of this problem. It’s made from silicone, not cloth, it’s the size of a normal hand (people with smaller hands can use it horizontally) and it can take temperatures up to 250C (480F). It seems very easy to use, and, because of its size, it’s unlikely it will ever get too close to a flame.
It also proposes a new way of storage: it comes with a suction cup and can be attached to any flat surface (over door, kitchen counter etc.). I’m not so sure this is the perfect way to go, since in my experience suction cups are unreliable and they tend to fall off after a while. Anyway, the suction cup doesn’t seem to get in the way, so you can just store it in a drawer or something.
