Steam-Stop Oven Gloves 5 "Not good for everone" Mrs BROOKES 26 February 2018 They are well made and hold back even extreme heat , but what I hadnt considered was just how hard it would be to manipulate the super thick material . Maybe with age, the power in my fingers has diminished, but when my hands go inside the pockets, Im just not able to bend the bulky material enough to grasp what I want to pick up . Washing them (they wash well) hasnt made them more flexible. Ive persevered thinking I'd find a better knack, but I havent , and have now reverted to my thinner ones .Sad. The product is high quality and heat proof , but hand strength is something to bear in mind. A note from the team Thank you for placing your review. I'm sorry to hear they don't suit you and I'll be in touch to help with an alternative.
