Now for the tests. First, I tried the 'Ove Glove's ability to withstand heat from a 450 degree oven. I placed a pan of tater tots in the oven for 25 minutes. Once they were done I used the glove to grab the pan out of the oven. It worked just as well as a normal oven mitt, until it came to holding the hot pan for a little bit. I had to put the pan down after no more than fifteen seconds! This would not be good if you were trying to hold a hot dish to pass out servings to family and friends.
The 'Ove Glove' is made from Kevlar and Nomex. It's suppose to protect your hands from temperatures as high as 540 degrees. It also has silicone strips embedded in the glove to add extra grip for handling slippery dishes and other types of glass bake ware. Unlike the standard 'pot holder', the 'Ove Glove' has five fingers just like a regular glove. I found this to be one of the plus' of the product as it adds the extra handling ability you sometimes need when handling hot dishes. You can also wear the product on either your left or right hands!
Wash the Ove Glove in the washing machine with regular laundry detergent in hot water. Before washing, pretreat any stains with a dab of liquid laundry detergent or your favorite stain remover. Let the stain remover do its work on the stain as per the manufacturer's recommendations for the product used. Do not use fabric softeners during the rinse cycle when washing the glove, as these can interfere with the heat-resistant materials in the glove. After washing, set it on a flat towel to air-dry.
