We’re back with some silicone oven gloves again, but this time you get two gloves without the piece of fabric in the middle.

Well, these get around the restrictions of silicone by having a weave pattern of silicone on the surface of the gloves. So, you still have the flexibility of cotton oven gloves, but also the grip of silicone too.

How to Choose the Right Oven Gloves for You

Choosing a pair of oven gloves may sound really simple, right? You could simply go and buy whichever oven gloves you first see, and they will do just fine for you.

However, if you put a bit of thought into how you cook and what you’ll be using the gloves for mainly, you could actually buy some oven gloves that are going to protect you really well and look good hanging in your kitchen.

So, here’s a quick guide on buying oven gloves that are perfect for you.

Oven glove materials


Some people love having lots of grip on oven gloves and will always choose silicone oven gloves as a result.

My dad has silicone oven gloves and gets on with them really well. These oven gloves last a lot longer than cotton ones, and the grip never really fades from them either, unless you are using them for hours at a time.

Silicone also has excellent heat resistant properties, so your hands will be protected from the heat for a long time.

I’m sure we’ve all picked something up in old, worn-out oven gloves in the past and have needed to put it down very quickly; otherwise, dinner will be all over the floor.

Well, with silicone oven gloves, you may never experience that. These oven mitts last for a very long time, offer plenty of grip (usually for the life of the gloves), and can look very stylish too.

The only downside to silicone oven gloves is that they are not as flexible as cotton gloves, so picking up small items with these gloves can be tricky.

Cotton oven gloves are great if you want flexibility. Lots of people feel that silicone oven gloves don’t provide enough feeling when handling things, and we understand that knowing you have a firm grip on something (especially something hot) is a big concern. So, cotton oven gloves may be the best route for you.

These oven gloves are nice and thick, so you’ll still have some good heat resistance, but they do wear out quicker than silicone gloves.

However, cotton oven gloves usually come in a lot of different styles, so you can choose the perfect gloves for your kitchen and the paint scheme.

Plus, as they don’t last as long, cotton oven gloves are usually cheaper than silicone ones.



Neoprene gloves offer a few advantages over other types. These gloves are known for their heat resistance, and provide a reliable protective barrier against high temperatures. Their water resistance also makes them versatile, as you can use them for tasks that involve liquids or steam.

One great thing about neoprene gloves is their flexibility and grip. They give you a secure grip on hot cookware, and the material is also flexible so you can move your fingers around easily.

One downside to neoprene gloves is that they can lack breathability compared to certain other materials, potentially resulting in a warmer feel during extended use.

Also, the thickness of neoprene gloves can mean they aren’t ideal for handling small items.

Neoprene gloves tend to be more flexible and form-fitting than silicone gloves. Compared to cotton gloves, neoprene has superior heat resistance but can be less breathable and a bit heavier.


Attached or separate?

Having used both separate oven gloves and attached oven gloves recently, I can certainly say that I prefer using single ones. I feel I have more control with single oven gloves, and I often only use one oven glove anyway.

If you’re a maverick like me and only use one oven glove, you’ll know that using attached oven mitts can be really unsafe as the other glove dangles down and gets in the way.

Of course, attached oven gloves still have their place in the kitchen and are great for certain tasks. Attached or detached oven gloves is really a personal thing. So, you could give both a try and see which you prefer.


Size and fit

Consider the size of your hands when choosing oven gloves. If your gloves are too small, they’ll feel constrictive and uncomfortable. On the other hand, if they’re too big, they’ll be challenging to control. Go for a snug yet not too tight fit if you can.

Most gloves on the market are available in a choice of sizes, so you should carefully choose which size is likely to be best for you. If you’re buying them in person rather than online, you can try them on and choose the gloves that fit snugly without being overly tight.

If you’re buying online, check any sizing charts or guidelines provided by the manufacturer. Measure your hands and see if they will fit. If you’re not sure, try to buy a product that you will be able to return if necessary.
