These things?

If so, are they any good? Totally heat proof?
Still able to move your hand when wearing it? Need one or two?

great but in a small kitchen like ours, unless you have a hook to put them on, they get in the way and they don't fold up. TK maxx have them. I like them. Sometimes hard to grip things though as they're quite rigid. I have two.

totally heat prof too, you'll be nervous when you 1st use them but they're absolutely fine smile

my mum was given one for christmas - I find it a bit tricky to get a good grip sometimes but that maybe because she only has one!

I love mine - though tend not to use it when LO is watching in cse he thinks he can pick up hot trays !

That's my concern bodiddly. I've tried them on in shops before now and not felt happy with them, but my coolskin ones are starting to not work so well, so I thought maybe they'd complement.

Totally heat proof is very reassuring Fruity.

Morrisons do them for a fiver. I keep looking at them thinking we really need an oven glove, but am too scared to get one, lol.

We have a couple. Dh loves them, I don't. My hands are a bit small for them and I feel like I'm going to drop whatever I'm holding.

Also very annoying to store.

Definitely heat proof though.

try these ones here they are flexible and easy to use. I have these and I find them brilliant, except when ds wanders off with them when I am cooking. He puts them on his feet and calls them 'duck duck feet'

what muffin said.

we had one and freecycled it.

unless you have ginormous man hands then avoid like the plague. absolute bollocks imo that they are so big, when they know their customers are men. angry

Yes! I did a thread worshipping them just the other day. I heart them VERY much: they are more heatproof than you can imagine. I do have man hands though.

And they do look like weird sex toys (or is that just me grin?)

And you do need a hook

And your children will steal them to play, er, Orcas.

But apart from that they are brilliant...
