My Grill Armor Gloves review will tell you how and why I use these heat-resistant gloves for cooking and grilling and recommend them as a good bang for your buck.
There are 3 types of gloves you need for handling a hot grill, and the Grill Armor Gloves offers all of these in excellent quality.
- Heat-resistant grill gloves
- Welding gloves
- Waterproof gloves
You can believe me when I say that before spending money on a pair of good heat-resistant gloves I burnt myself several times.
If you are only able to buy one pair of gloves I can advise you from my own experience that it should be welding gloves.
I have tried several welding gloves and as I mentioned several times before, I believe that in many cases you get what you pay for.
I ended up ordering some Grill Armor Gloves welding gloves and have used them for a long time now with no problems.
I used them to remove my grill grates and handle my Weber charcoal starter when it was time to pour the charcoal into the grill.
Although you can do a lot with welding gloves, grill gloves will give you a lot more “feeling” in your fingers compared to welding gloves.
For working on the grill where I need that little more feeling I use my Grill Armor Gloves grill gloves.
What I like about them is that although they are heat resistant you still can feel anything you do touch with them. That is the big advantage over using welding gloves.
I also use them to place logs on my wood stove in the wintertime.
Waterproof And Heat Resistant Gloves
Waterproof does not automatically mean heat resistant. If that was the case I could use a pair of dishwasher gloves that my wife uses.
The reason I have a pair of Grill Armor Gloves waterproof and heat-resistant gloves is that I can use them to move the meat around on the grill or smoker.
You might say, well you can use some tools you mentioned in your grill utensils post.
That is true, however, when I have a large cut of meat such as pork pork but, or smaller pieces that are hard to get a grip on.
An example of such is when you are grilling vegetables it is my experience that a heat-resistant waterproof glove works easier.

Grill Armor Gloves Review– My Experience
I did grill and BBQ glove reviews and I wrote about Grill Armor Gloves there also. However, since I have such good experience with them I decided to review them here on a separate page.
I am not saying that other brands are not good. However, since I also have large hands, (my little niece calls them banana hands) I like this brand.
My wife also used the Grill Armor Gloves in the kitchen as oven mittens and told me to keep them inside and only get them when I needed them to make it easier for her to use them.
Recently I installed a wood stove in our house and these gloves helped my hands not to get burned while I reloaded wood in the stove.
