Does anyone have some amazingly good oven mitts.

I bought these https://www.kitchenw...-Oven-Mitts-Red thinking they would last and be easy to wash but they have started delaminating and I can feel the heat from certain bits.

For easy to clean, silicon ones are probably the best.

I don’t use oven mitts, I just double up a tea towel or two.

These are the best oven mitts ever.  silicone outside, cotton lining, super comfy, super grippy, and no heat gets through at all. And cheap.

I use these silicon ones from Kmart.  Just give them a rinse under the tap if they get dirty and are great heat protectors.  I have some outside for the BBQ too.

Ohh, thanks for this link. I used similar at a holiday rental and I loved them - the combination of easy clean grippy silicon on the outside with thick padded lining was brilliant!

Okay, I think I’ll have to try silicone. I don’t know why, but it makes me feel wary.

I've had mine for years.  So long I've no idea where I got them.  They actually look quite pleasant and are as good as new.

Two pairs as in not separate mitt but joined together with hand thing at either end.

They've got the brand Essentials written on them. They are not silicone and were inexpensive.

I'm still using home made pot-holders my mum made for me.

That’s fancy. My mum doesn’t do that. What she does do is go on holidays overseas and buy badly made, thin shoddy oven mitts from each destination. I have asked her to stop.

Now I remember that was one of the things they taught girls to make at school in the olden days.

ETA the appeal for me was the sewing in the pattern of a spider web.

Oh yeah I had to make open holders in sewing!

My hands are quite tiny so i have trouble finding oven mits that i can control.

I like these ones you get from Spotlight and other places made of neoprene as they're a nice small size.  I think they're Avanti.

I have this one. Hasn't fallen apart and does the job. I paid 12 dollars for it on sale. As it is thick it does need to dry in the sun when washed.

It is nice and long for bigger pans. Looks like there are also singular glove style is this series.

Edit - hasn't ****

My Neoprene one was disappointing too, hot spots right from the start. And terrible if you get them wet - the heat goes straight through.

We use the KMart ones too. Very happy with them.
