Kevlar blend gloves with heat and abrasion resistance

I am recommending the High Heat Thermobest Gloves — not for their intended use, which is for industrial work on very hot items, but rather as everyday oven mitts. I have been using these gloves ever since I caught a glimpse of them on an Alton Brown show. Unlike standard oven mitts, these gloves have some degree of flexibility in the fingers so that one actually grasp hot items. While the manufacturer states that one can use them up to 800º I have used them on 700º cast iron skillets with ease.
