My magical canning gloves! a great addition to my canning line up!!
I had the honor of being contacted early this month by Dan from "High Five Naturals" to test out and give my input on his companies new product. I thought a blog review was in order on this one!! The easiest 'oven mitt' I've ever owned that also withstands extreme heat yet has so many versatile uses. These felt more nimble to use and I felt more secure in picking up items like hot canning jars out of my boiling water bath and pressure canner. I love that they are odor resistant (and mildew resistant too!) I rinse mine off in soapy water and off I can go again onto another project! These gloves are made by High Five Naturals and let me tell you - I will no longer burn my hands preparing corn (from the cob) for canning too! I can grab the cobs right out of the boiling water and place them into the ice bath for processing. I found that I can hold large items more securely with these on, I always set my just cleaned canning jars in the oven to keep HOT while preparing items that will be canned - reaching in and grabbing a HOT jar no longer requires an odd reach into the oven with a jar lifter or outdated oven mitts, or a kitchen towel - I just grab them with my 'High Fives' on and even better - I also place my hot jars directly into my canner with them on... If you click on "Read More" I've added some great information directly from High Five Naturals - a great product that should be added to your Canning line up!! Remember these are also multi-functional so many MORE great uses around the house but - for handling HOT foods and HOT jars with BOILING water around as you are CANNING - these are GREAT! - Enjoy!
