I bought these thinking they would be as good as previous heavy duty oven gloves I have had from Lakeland. I immediately noticed that they were not quite as long but still a good size. Unfortunately I didn't notice that they should only be washed at 40C (I have always washed previous oven gloves at a higher temperature with great results). Consequently they have now shrunk and are completely useless. Disappointing.

Best oven gloves”
Having purchased so many supermarket oven gloves over the years, and having to throw them out when they wore thin in places and burnt me, I've been impressed with the protection these give, and they enable me to take very large dishes/roasting tins out of the oven safely. They are definately worth the extra money.

The gloves are all I had hoped for but cannot be washed at more than 40 degrees. This was only apparent on the tiny label. As they get really grubby I always have washed oven gloves at 60 but these ones shrank and are now half the size.

Heavy Duty Double Oven Gloves”
by Mrs HamiltonGoya
On washing them for the first time I found that they were not well made as the cloth which forms the mitt had not been stitched down correctly; thus they have frayed. Also they are too clumsy in form to safely remove hot dishes or tins from the oven. Very disappointed.

the longest standing oven glove i own!”
These oven gloves are great they have lasted far longer than any others I have owned

I'm now on my 3rd pair. Nothing is to hot too handle and because of their length, nothing is too wide to handle either

I have just placed an order for a pair of these oven gloves.......only my 3rd pair in about 20 years....you simply can't beat the value these provide.

Excellent Oven Gloves”
These are great oven gloves. The length of material between each glove is long enough for picking up large dishes or baking trays, which means no danger of burning yourself. I recommend them.

I hate giving bad feedback....”
But... I'm sure this is a really good product, however, I seem to have a duff one! One of the layers inside the glove is not stitched at the end, therefore there is a risk of my fingers getting burnt. This is the first time I have used them too, so it's not a case of overwashing them or anything. UPDATE..... Lakeland customer service is brilliant, within a half hour of putting this review a nice gentleman rang me, when I explained about the fault he immediately said that a replacement would be sent out, and hey ho there it was in the post a couple of days later. This product is excellent!

Poor quality gloves for giants!”
I bought these gloves as my trusty old ones are falling apart. I'm so disappointed with the new pair, the quality is very poor and they are not as thick as my old pair (which I think had 3 layers where your hands go). I didn't particularly need the extra length but can cope with it, but what I can't cope with is the enormous hand area. I've only got small hands and there's far too much fabric which just gets in the way, and I can't get a good grip on my pots, pans and trays etc. Sorry, Lakeland, one 'improvement' I could do without! Please can I have the old design back?!

No more burnt hands”
This is a lovely oven glove. It really does stop any heat coming through to your hands. Only problem i had was the binding all came away when I washed it so a bit annoying. Will be ordering another one to replace as its the best oven glove i have had in 40 years

I've have tried many oven gloves over the years, but these are the best by far, and last well.

The previous two pairs of these oven gloves I had were fantastic, I was able to hold really hot dishes for as long as I needed and time after time of washing they came out like new. So when the time came to replace one of them I automatically went to Lakeland but the pair I have purchased are of less quality than my previous ones. The material is thinner and cannot take as much heat. Very disappointed. I hope Lakeland can rectify this problem as their products are usually top rate.

not what you would expect from Lakeland”
by Mrs Heaney
I purchased another pair of gloves as I had a previous pair and they were great. However I have been disappointed with my second pair. I find the gloves too big for a medium sized hand, too much material when lifting hot pots. I still find fluff from the interior still comes out on my hands after using them and it either sticks to your skin or simply flies in the air! Now around food I don't think it is right. Just not Lakeland quality!

I can recommend these completely, had no problems with heat penetration, length is great for large dishes, even my husband's large hands fit in them! Wash well in the machine, beat all other gloves I have tried.

Had a pair of these before and they were excellent. These are nothing like as good, they are not easy to grip things with, I have dropped several things due to not getting a secure grip on items. They are nothing like as good as the Original which was excellent.

A note from the team: Thanks for all your feedback on the heavy duty double oven gloves. We've passed it on to the buying team.
...they are far too big for my hands! I bought them to replace ones that had worn out and while they are brilliant protection from the heat, I find it very difficult to pick anything up with them and have nearly had a couple of nasty accidents when I wasn't as in control as I thought I was. I hope Lakeland will source some that have a narrower opening for the hands (I can't be the only one that has this problem!)

Best oven gloves!”
These are great. We were given this oven glove as part of a wedding gift, they've washed very well, keep the heat away and have only just worn out - 8 years later!!! I am so glad these are still available!

The best oven gloves”
I have recently ordered my 3rd pair of these oven gloves and have to say that they are the best that I have had. The gloves keep out the steam, the heat and they are a good length. I cannot recommend these oven gloves enough!

so far so good...”
by Ms Paul
Bought these after getting tired of cheapish supermarket ones which look pretty but heat goes through too quick! Had some (very) old ones made of similar material which kept the heat off of your hands but after several years had started to unravel! These are fairly stiff at the moment as still pretty new, but are comfortable to use and definately stop the heat! Can't speak to washing as have not done so yet. Would certainly recommend. Lakeland guarantee is very reassuring- I figure if it does as it says, that's great, I have a useful product, and if it doesn't, I can return with no hassle!
