One simple trick. Welding Gloves
« on: September 19, 2022, 06:27:39 PM »
An absolute must for hot heavy cast iron, and darn handy for pulling a casserole out of the oven.  Next time you're at harbor freight, or passing the welding supply shop, grab a pair of leather welding gloves.

You'll never go back to the gimp mittens and the doilies can be on the table where they belong, under hot dishes.

I've pulled pans from a 500 degree oven without any felt transfer of heat at all.

I have several pair that don't get used for welding. Absolutely essential for camping, and next to the fireplace, and for handling semi-feral barn cats.

We used to have a glove factory here that later became a warehouse and shipping hub for all sorts of industrial type gloves. Once every year they had a huge lot sale of seconds, samples, over runs, etc and they sold them real cheap or by the bundle or bag. I bought a tote full several years. They were mergered out of local existance but I might never have to buy gloves again.
What we have here is failure to communicate.

If you have a wood stove or wood fireplace, you definitely need a set of good heavy welding gloves.
 
Log rolls out? Don't panic. Just put the gloves on, pick it up, and put it back. Easy.

I was baking something a few days ago. I have no idea where my two Ikea oven mitts are. Probably in a laundry bag.

I've had a pair of Wells Lamont 5130XL next to the stove for years.

I have some winter leather gloves with Thinsulate insulation; they are loose-fitting like a work glove.  I've started using them in the kitchen, as long as they are not wet from shoveling snow or clearing ice off the car.  (basically, I'm using them for very-unstylish winter gloves but they live in the kitchen now)

Do you think the silicone gloves or leather welding gloves would be better for hot pans?

Depends on the thickness and overall construction, I'd say.

I have two of the gloves that I linked below and I can easily take a cast iron pan from a 400 degree oven and hold on to it for maybe 20-30 seconds before I even notice the heat starting to seep through the mitt.

Silicone also has some other benefits, such as better natural grip due to its rubber-like consistency and it tends to be more flexible that leather.
