Each item performs its job well. If you wear large men's gloves or smaller, these gloves will fit you perfectly. I wear welding gloves to handle the grill and then slip into these silicone ones to transfer piping hot pork shoulders to a tray because they are easy to clean. Are the claws made of solid adamantium? No. Do they need to be any stronger than the thin plastic they are? No; I clawed apart 9 pounds of pork shoulder with no flex in the claws at all. I see some folks complaining that the basting brush silicone separates from the handle. I believe they would also complain if they couldn't take it apart to clean. All silicone basting brushes I've ever bought, including fancy ones from Williams-Sonoma, have friction-fit heads so you can easily disassemble for cleaning.
