More Info

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

  • 1005 dupont nomex
  • Made in the USA and Imported
  • Dupont Nomex is used in fire fighter, Aerospace, military such as body armor, yet can be light-weight, comfy and thermally safer. It helps boost the total toughness and strength. And dupont nomex fiber is naturally flame resistant, hard and pliable.
  • High exrreme heat would not cause gloves to melt
  • Unique Silicone coating due to the silicon texturing of the five fingers both side. Effortless to take off Baking gloves or to put on swiftly just as Oven Mitts.
  • Size large fits most hands
  • 4 inches W * 10.5 inches L. Gloves meant for bigger fiting for easy slip on and off.

 

I use a similar type of glove (Ove Glove) when I’m making yeast starters in an Erlenmeyer Flask.  It’s really handy (pun intended) to swirl around the flask or to quickly remove to keep the flask from boiling over.

These type of gloves are also handy on brew day for handling warm, (but not wet) ball valves and such.

These are not waterproof.  Safety Note: Always use caution when handling hot items or ingredients and always read and follow manufacturer directions.

This looks similar to my 24″ Stainless Whisk.  That whisk is an easy upgrade that I generally recommend for all but small batch only brewers.  Check out my Hands on Review of that great tool.

Use this on brew day in your mash tun and brew kettle.  In the mash tun… a whisk like this makes quick work of breaking up up doughballs.  In the brew kettle… Use to incorporate extract, stir the brew kettle or start a kettle whirlpool.
