Oven Gloves That Actually Work: A Guide to Safe and Efficient Baking

 As passionate home chefs and bakers, we understand the importance of having the right tools in the kitchen. Among these, a good pair of oven gloves is crucial. Not all oven gloves are created equal, and in this blog, we’ll explore what makes an oven glove effective, safe, and a must-have in your kitchen.

1. Material Matters:

The first thing to consider when looking for oven gloves that work is the material. The most common materials are:

  • Silicone: Heat resistant, waterproof, and provides a good grip.
  • Cotton: Often quilted with heat-resistant lining, offering comfort and flexibility.
  • Aramid Fibers: Used in aerospace and military applications, these gloves offer superior heat resistance.
  • Maison Elhoria's oven gloves are made with thick cotton on the top and have a heatproof toweling inside and in contact with the hot dishes; they also have an essential steam proof barrier, avoiding the heat to travel to the hand when in contact with hot liquid. 

2. Heat Resistance:

A good oven glove needs to withstand high temperatures. Look for gloves that can handle at least 350°F (177°C). Some high-end models can resist heat up to 500°F (260°C) or more. Our oven gloves meet all legal UK and European regulation specifications.

3. Coverage and Comfort:

The best oven gloves cover not just your hands but also part of your forearms, protecting you from accidental burns. They should be flexible enough to allow easy movement of fingers for gripping baking trays and pots. Maison Elhoria gauntlet gloves efficiently protect your whole arm, up below the elbow, allowing you to reach out deep in the oven, especially when it comes to Aga, Rayburn and Everhot range cookers.

4. Grip and Control:

An effective oven glove should have a good flexibility so you can grip your dishes easily and safely

5. Easy to Clean:

Kitchen tools need to be hygienic. Look for gloves that are machine washable or easily wiped clean. Some silicone gloves can be washed in the dishwasher.

6. Style and Design:

At Maison Elhoria, we believe functionality can meet style. Oven gloves come in various colors and patterns. Choose a pair that matches your kitchen décor or personal style. 

7. Safety Tips:

  • Always inspect gloves for tears or holes before use.
  • Replace gloves that have lost their heat-resistance.
  • Be cautious with wet oven gloves, as they can transmit heat faster.
