I have used YKS oven gloves when I tried cooking barbecue and when I use the electric kettle for pouring water in the mug. The gloves are indeed heat resistant, and since I have large hands, the gloves also fit nicely on my palm. Compared to my old oven gloves, the YKS gloves have silicon strips that aid in handling of the hot items or kitchen ware, so it does not slip, so this is not your average pair of oven gloves. The material is thick and the stitching perfect. They might be a bit more expensive that the other oven gloves in the market, but I can assure you that it is a quality item. I will share to you guys a coupon code that I got so you can use this when you want to purchase a pair of gloves so that you can get a discount, so here, is the code is FORGLOVE.
