This oven mitt is excellent. The construction is of the highest quality as you would expect from Lakeland as they won’t sell products that fall below their exacting standards. I recently found some ‘duck’s bill’ oven mitts on the largest online retailer’s site but after a single use they started to show signs of wear and are now only fit for the recycling bin. Lakeland’s online store is backed up by a nationwide chain of bricks and mortar shops where you can check out the quality of goods should you wish to. I will continue to use Lakeland as my go-to kitchen and household store.
