Compared to other types of oven mitts, silicone mitts offer a whole lot of benefits for users. Apart from being FDA-recommended, they are mostly made of high-quality construction. Silicone is a super durable material that provides flexibility and heat resistance twice as rubber.
Cloth mitts are soft and comfortable, but also carry disease-causing bacteria when left moist and unwashed. This is not the case with silicone oven mitts. Since they are non-porous waterproof, they do not hoard any microorganisms that might cause illnesses to your family.
Because of their non-slippery nature, silicone gloves provide a better grip than other types of oven mitts. And as mentioned above, they can take extremely high temperatures, so you won’t have problems handling pans and other hot objects, even if they get as hot as 500 degrees Fahrenheit. Likewise, you could drop objects on boiling water, without having to worry about hot water splashes.
