grill and bbq gloves reviews

I did the grill and BBQ gloves reviews because we all need a pair of heat resistance barbecue grill gloves to handle the hot grill, hot meat and pots, and pans.

Read all my grilling and BBQ gloves reviews:

There are for example silicone grill gloves, but also other materials. I only review the best grill and BBQ gloves with the highest customer ratings.

One tip is to look at the sizes to find the right one for your hands.

#1 Grill Gloves By Grill Heat Aid

Better Grills Rating: 4.8

Customer Reviews

“This is my second pair. I have one pair that I bought else wear and keep out by the grill and I bought this pair for the kitchen. I do a ton of bread baking and have been using a lot of Dutch ovens to bake in. Thise damn things are hot when they are heated up before baking bread. I like the fact that these gloves cover partway up on my arms when I place the bread in the Dutch ovens I am protected. I highly recommend these gloves….

“I like that each glove can be used on either hand. In other words, the front on the right hand becomes the back on the left hand and they are temperature safe on the front and back. Many of my mitts have had holes over time but these seem like they’ll be pretty durable. I’ve also never had fingers on oven mitts and I like the flexibility….(read more here:)”

My Opinion About #1 grill gloves by grill heat aid

grill gloves by heat aid

With over 540 buyers and a 4.8 rating, there is not much wrong with these grill gloves, but we found a few points that might help you decide if this is the best pair for you.
The heat resistance is claimed to be able to handle temperatures up to 932 degrees Fahrenheit.
And all users claim that they work really well in any situation.
They are however quite big, so if you have small hands this might not be the best pair for you.

With the colors black, mint, orange, red, blue silicon, and hot pink you can find the color you like.

One person mentioned that these #1 grill gloves are not waterproof and he had hot water penetrating the gloves.
Also, a user mentioned that he would like the sleeves to be a little longer to make it easier to clean the grill.

A pro that I found is that they do not have a right or left. They fit both hands left and right. That makes it easier to use in our opinion.
I strongly believe that since these #1 grill gloves are the number one seller, you can not really go wrong with this.

Number One Silicone BBQ gloves

Better Grills Rating: 4.6

Customer Reviews of the number one silicone bbq gloves

“First of all they are fantastic. they wash up easy, protect your hands well and are a must have for the grille and smoker. In addition to that, the customer service from Jolly Green Products is very satisfying. They stand by their products and reach out to make sure you are 100% satisfied. It is all true, they practice what they preach! I recommend this company and their product to all….

“I used these for the first time the other day and they really work well. I was able to turn food on my gas grill without sacrificing my hands. Even with tongs, turning food without these was uncomfortable. I wish they can in sizes since I am a gal and they are one size fits all but I’ll live with the fact that they are a bit too large. Great grill gloves! ….(read more here:)”

My Opinion About the number one silicone bbq glove

best silicone grill glove

Made by jolly green products and received over 500 ratings from real users.
Very usable to use because they are very flexible and really good slip-resistant. This makes it easy to grab little items like food on the grill or pick up the hot grill grates. It can also be used to tear the meat off the bone.
Looks like these grill gloves are imitated a lot, which is why the seller advises checking that the name Jolly green products is on there.
Their heat resistance is up to 425 degrees and in our opinion, that is good enough.
They are waterproof, dishwasher safe, and oil washed right off.
No 1 seller of oven mitts on Amazon and what we like is that they are available in 3 sizes.

Premium Quality gloves for BBQ or kitchen

Better Grills Rating: 4.8

Customer Reviews of the premium quality bbq gloves

“I have 4 sets of BBQ gloves and these are the best! Less bulky than some, good tactile feel (for gloves), and excellent heat reduction. I bought them specifically for my salt block, but haven’t had an opportunity to use the gloves for that yet–but I have confidence they will work for the salt block as well. I was able to adjust oven racks without problem and remove hot foods (400) from the oven.”

“i mainly smoke brisket in my smoker or cook pizza in my outdoor pizza oven and this pair of gloves has worked well for both activities. my smoker hits about 350 degrees and my pizza oven hits around 600 plus and so far the gloves have been great….(read more here:)”

My Opinion about the Premium Quality gloves

premium grill glove

Since we are only reviewing the best-rated and most-sold grill gloves we mainly find great reviews and this pair is not much different.
Heat resistance up to 662 degrees and great grip. They are washable, but you can not put them in the dryer.
This means that you have to air dry them, but it does not take too long.
The claim is that you can even hold them in an open flame and they will not catch fire or melt.

They are not waterproof so be careful with hot water and grease. They only come in one size, but that does not seem to bother anyone. Looks like it is a kind of one size fits all grill glove.
We recommend these grill gloves as a good buy for the money.

Lightweight flexible grill gloves

Better Grills Rating: 4.8

Customer Reviews of the Lightweight flexible grill gloves

“With most oven gloves and mitts, when you pick up something hot, you can still feel that heat through the material, and after a while, you need to put the item down somewhere.
But with these grill gloves, every hint of heat was absorbed by the Nomex / Kevlar mix. I might as well have been holding something out of the fridge.
I did find they were slightly on the tight side, but as they’re made from elasticated material, I know they will loosen up enough after a few more uses.
I really don’t think you’ll find a better pair of oven gloves than these.)”

My opinion about the Lightweight flexible grill gloves

light weight grill glove

Cotton lining for comfort and comes in two sizes. One size fits all and a Lady’s small size.
We did not read all the over 540 customer reviews we found, but what we found was pretty impressive.
Just like a few other ones we found, these grill gloves are what they call “uni-wear” meaning there is no left or right and the grip stripes are on both sides.
They are not waterproof and will let you feel the heat when you use them wet, but if they are not wet they work great and because of the cotton lining they are very comfortable.

Grill Armor gloves

With over 1100 people who took the time to write a review and an average rating of 4.6 out of 5 stars, there is not much wrong with these Grill Armor gloves.

Customer reviews for the Grill Armor

“hese are better than the original ov-glove sold on TV. I am able to hold hot trays off the grill for longer periods of time than with the originals. I wouldn’t suggest testing out the 932 degrees. I have done 500 degrees for about 30 seconds though moving hot trays from the BBQ grill to the counter. We also take these camping to move cast iron pots off and onto the fire. Never had an issue with burning our hands and the silicon grip strips work well too….

“These gloves are awesome. I’ve had them for a week and have been using them in place of my oven mitts. They fit my hands well (and my husband’s hands even better—the size would probably work for any hand because they’re stretchy), and I like them so much better than regular oven mitts, mainly because they are not all big and clumsy…(read more here)”

My opinion about the Grill Armor extreme heat resistance gloves

932 Fahrenheit heat resistance oven glove

94% of the people give these oven gloves a 4 or 5-star rating. They come in 5 colors and two sizes. Men and women. I read someone who mentioned that the woman’s size was still too large for her.

Better Grills Rating: 4.7

The statement of the 932 degrees we cannot prove because none of the users have tried and, to be honest, I would not do it either.

Overall I can not find too much wrong with them and I think it is safe to recommend them as a good buy.

I like them soo much that I made a whole page with my Grill Armor Gloves review.

There are a lot of reviews that still recommend not to get them wet because then the heat gets still transmitted to your skin faster. But not as fast as the cheaper brands.

Grill And BBQ Gloves – My Experience

I have used many gloves in my restaurant, that promised to be heat resistant and protect your hands from the heat of the grill or hot meat you try to shred.

My experience with them is from great to not that great.

I strongly believe that you get what you pay for. However, for just handling your grill or grill grates the cheapest solution is a pair of welding gloves.
