I love grilling in the summer. But the one thing I hate is the intense heat! When I try to season or bast more sauce on my meat the heat can be too much. And often painful. When I was asked if I would try out Nomex oven gloves in exchange for my honest and unbiased review I agreed. With grilling season on the horizon I would love to find a solution to my problem.
When the Nomex oven gloves arrived they looked like gloves with bumpy silicone all over them. I tried them on and they fit fairly well. I was able to pick up a glass full of water with no spills. I was even able to hold a brush and have complete control. The next test was to try and grill something.
Now it is not very warm by any means right now but the snow and ice have melted so I am able to access my grill. So I started my grill up and got the steaks ready. Once the grill was warm I
placed the steaks on. Easily with compete control I was able to season the steaks while they were on the grill. I did feel the intensity of the heat at all. And I was able to hold the seasoning just fine. No slipping. When it was time to flip them, I put the gloves back on, again I did not feel the heat. The whole time I was grilling I never felt the heat. And I had control over anything I tried to use while wearing the gloves.
The Noxem oven gloves worked great. I was able to grill and not feel the intensity of the heat. And I had control the whole time. I like them much better than a hot pad because my whole hand is protected and I didn’t need to worry about a hot pad slipping and exposing my skin.
