Proud & Co Kitchenware | Silhouette Oven Glove

I thought my current oven glove was looking worm, tatty and quite honestly, a bit on the burnt side, so when I received the new New silhouette oven glove by Proud & Co*, I decided to put it to good use straight away. I got the butter biscuit dough and royal icing out of the fridge and Lily and I proceeded to make Halloween cookies.

Proud & Co
Unlike my now retired double oven glove, this is just a singular mitt which can fit either hand. It is heat resistant up to 260degC so it is ideal for baking and cooking using standard home kitchen ovens.

Out of the oven; freshly baked spelt butter cookies

The non slip grip allowed me to handle the hot baking sheets with confidence and ease. Thankfully it is also waterproof and machine washable, which is just as well; my oven mitt is now sporting some bright orange royal icing decorations! Since the palm side has a textured finish, I can lift and carry my more slippery glass dishes without my hands getting remotely hot.

Out with the old
and in with the new!
It sports a pretty design, a simple monochromatic silhouette of birds on tree branches. If there was a turquoise, teal or duck egg blue oven mitt in this design I would make a beeline for it, but the choice of colours means it looks stylish and would suit any kitchen interior.
It also features a handle which means it is easier to pull onto your hand, and when you are finished with using it, it can be used to hang it up. I used to hang my old oven glove over the oven door handle, but I found this silicone and neoprene mitt can actually grab hold of the handle and remain upright, so I can just pop my hand inside.

I am very impressed by the quality of the Silhouette Oven Glove, but if it didn't make a great addition to your kitchen there is a 30 day money back guarantee; 100% satisfaction guaranteed.
If I could make one adjustment it would be to increase the length of the thumb section to accomodate longer thumbs and aid dexterity in holding dishes. I just find it a tad too short , but it doesn't impact on the overall quality of the Silhouette oven glove. I would also make use of another glove, particularly when lifting or holding a heavy hot dish with both hands. The Silhouette oven glove available from Amazon definitely shows up my old fabric one and I'm sure it will last a great deal longer.

I am continuing my adventures with royal icing, so once I get it right I will post a recipe on it.
Thanks for reading.
