About This Product
Making a high-quality product is not just the result of premium ingredients or a flawless technique, but also the correct supplies and protective gear such as gloves. Heavy Duty Food Grade Gloves come in adult sizes; medium for smaller adult hand sizes, large for average-to-large hands, and x-large for larger adult hand sizes, and can be layered over cotton gloves for extra protection. Getting the correct size will help give cheesemakers a secure fit. These food grade heat resistant gloves are made of extra durable, flexible, neoprene-coated latex material, making it suitable for handling high temperatures of cheese and enable cheesemakers to fully immerse their hands for short periods of time. Thanks to an embossed grip, cheesemakers can look forward to handling their product more securely. Using cheese making gloves make tasks such as loading warm curds into a cheese press, separating hot curds from brine or stretching hot mozzarella, safer, easier and more efficient. Not only will they keep hands clean and comfortable, but they will also keep them safe and protected from heat damage. They are best suited for handling temperatures closer to 160 degrees Fahrenheit but can still be helpful for handling cheese or other foods up to 200 degrees Fahrenheit, with comfort level based on the temperature of the product, an individual’s heat tolerance and time spent handling or fully immersing one’s hands. Since cheesemakers must often handle curds at certain temperatures within a specific window of time to yield a high-quality result, having gloves that can protect against a range of temperatures is essential. Heavy duty food grade gloves are not just a luxury, but a necessary for many recipes and make a practical addition to homemade cheese kits. Purchase more than one pair and save.

Stretching hot Mozzarella curd without gloves was always unpleasant for me.
After testing various gloves, I found these to be adequate for handling hot curd, but not suitable for long term total immersion.
I have tested these gloves to the following temperature range.
Your own comfort level may be lower or higher.
- 160f(71c); very comfortable
- 170f(76.6c); slightly uncomfortable/10 second immersion limit
- 180f(82c);slightly uncomfortable, 5-10 second immersion limit
- 190f(87.7c): uncomfortable, 3-4 second immersion limit
- 200f(93.3c): very uncomfortable, 2-3 second immersion limit.
Features an embossed grip for ease of use and constructed of Neoprene over a yellow Latex for full protection.
