Heat resistant vs. Retardant

So an interesting or potentially horrific thing happened to me last night as I was making my steak. Thankfully I wasn’t wearing the glove, but had it folded / doubled over as I lifted my cast iron pan. Has anyone ever seen an oven mitt melt like this???

You should get a lawyer to write to the New York Giants attornies and get yourselves a pay day. LOL.

What’s the outer layer made of?

Yes, I have scorched oven mitts, they get stiff, sort of crisp.

This wasn’t scorched so much as it didn’t come anywhere near direct flame. They just melted right off, not stiff nor crisp at all.

This is pretty bad.

The average oven mitt is rated for 350-450f max. Cast iron can
exceed that range. There are mitts designed for higher temps. Stop buying that cheap chit :wink:

The melted glove has been thrown out but this is the tag from its pair.


The Giants can’t stop anything!
