Very Cool Cool Gloves

I hate pot holders. I hate them for several reasons. First, they get food or moisture on them and the heat comes through, they tend to be too small, and finally they don't really have a grip. I have fabric pot holders, woven pot holders, and crochet pot holders. They fill a basket on the shelf next to my stove and take up too much space, but since I hadn't found anything to replace them, I was stuck using them. Until now.

I was sent a pair of Cool Gloves to review and I discovered I really like them. A few years ago a similar product was sold, but was sold as only one glove. Not helpful when I need to carry something heavy and hot. Cool Gloves are sold as a pair and work on both hands. Ambidextrous gloves are helpful when I am in a hurry to get something out of the oven or off the barbecue. 

The silicon on the Cool Gloves allows me to hold onto items confidently. Because the glove fits up the wrist a bit, the hand is completely protected from heat and splatter. I have used the gloves on the barbecue to pick up hot ears of corn. They also saved my hands when stirring a boiling pot of water by blocking the steam. It is too bad you cant get them wet, since reaching into a pot of boiling water for a potato would be a wicked trick.

The Cool Gloves are a little large for my hands, but that doesn't affect their function due to the large amount of silicon surface area. I love the loop that is included on each glove, making them easy to hang and ready to go. 

Want a pair of your own? You can find them on Amazon here

I can now throw away all those other potholders. Yay for Cool Gloves!
