Kuisiware Super Glove Review - Grilling Gloves
Nothing is worse than burning your hand or fingers while grilling. We have all been there! I've been looking for a high quality grilling glove so when I was given the opportunity to review the Kuisiware Super Glove, I was real excited. The reason that I wanted a grilling glove is that I routinely get too close to hot grilling grates, scorching hot charcoal chimneys, hot Ugly Drum Smoker Lids, etc. I didn't like the idea of using an oven mitt as they don't provide enough flexibility. I'm pretty happy with this product and here's why.
First off, the glove comes in a nice large size. This will support even the chubbiest of grillers and BBQers. The glove is made from heat resistant Dupont fibers that seem to stretch a bit when you put your hand in. It's rather comfy. On the outside of the glove there is a silicone coating which is non slip. It almost sticks to things. Pretty nice.
Another cool feature is that there is a small loop at the base of each glove. This allows the gloves to be hung neatly from your grill or smoker.
When you light a charcoal chimney it is very easy to feel the intense heat of the charcoal. For example, when I light my Ugly Drum Smoker, I will light the charcoal on my Weber Performer grill and then dump the chimney out into my Ugly Drum Smoker. Fitting the chimney into my 50 gallon steel drum means I have to get close to the heat. These gloves give me much more protection as they are heat resistant up to 662 degrees F. When dumping out the chimney, my hands are protected from the heat with these Super Gloves.
Another thing that I routinely do is remove hot grates while they are still over charcoal. This might be to move a large batch of smoked wings from a smoker to a direct heat grill or for cleaning. I also use the extra grate that I added to my grill quite often and it gets hot! It is very handy to move this extra grate around with these gloves. Since these gloves have 5 fingers, you can get a good grip on the grate just as if you were using your hand. Very nice!
I summary, I really like this glove. It is large enough to accommodate a variety of hand sizes, is heat resistant up to 662 degrees F and has a nice non slip silicone coating on the exterior. The current price on Amazon is only $22 and if you are an Amazon Prime member you'll get 2 day shipping for free. That's pretty darn cheap for a great glove. Check out the Super Glove on Amazon.com.
