What I love: I cook almost all meals at home so I am always in the kitchen. I also have RA and Fibro so my hands are always hurting while using them so cooking gets difficult. I used to use the square kind of pot holders but since the trouble with my hands I feel less secure using those because they dont give me a good grip on the hot dishes. I then switched to the mitt kind but they are often bulky and big for my small hands and I end up with just as many grip issues. I also find that the cloth pot holders get dirty and burn and have to be washed often so I was looking for an alternative.
The AYL Silicone Cooking Gloves are amazing. They are super soft on the inside with a really nice cotton against your skin surrounded by a heat resistant layer. This was a huge selling point to me because the silicone gloves I looked at in the store were just straight silicone even inside and it felt sticky and sweaty. I didn't feel like my hands got warm or sweaty at all when wearing these, they stayed completely cool and comfortable. The outside is full food safe grade silicone that's head resistant and textured. I have very small hands so they are big on me, but not too much that it's hard to use. I can move my fingers and grip the hot objects perfectly fine. They cushion my fingers too so it's less pain and I'm less likely to drop something. They give a really secure grip and can even be used to open jars. The texture is really helpful for that too. It's not too much that it gets in the way. These are also great for keeping the heat off your hands when you're tending a stove, oven, fireplace, .grills, wood stove or fire pit. Even keep you safe when you are getting things out of the microwave or potentially putting your hands near hot steam. They also work well if you are a parent who needs to boil bottle parts to sterilize them! They keep your hands super cool and safe.
What I really like about these is that when I am done with them every night I can wash them off right in the sink, or even throw them in the dishwasher if need be. I found so far they clean super easy and and look like new.
Bottom Line: I really love it and give it 5 out of 5 stars.
