I have finally used this set that I ordered. The gloves actually fit alot better than I expected. They give protection up pass my wrist. That is full insulated water and heat protection while on the grill. The water proof factor of the gloves is just an added bonus for me. I can handle meat with tongs or anything to that nature and still be able to wash your hands or should I say glove off, hang the right back up. This coming as a set makes it even better. You have your mitts, your basting brush, your thermometer, and meat claws. Did I mention these are oven mitts as well? They are pretty much what you want them to be dealing with heat or water.
