Grilling season is here, and it generally makes sense to pull out a little protective gear before you fire up the grill. The Pit Grilling Mitt offers a layer of protection for your hands so that, even if you were to grab a hot steak right off the heat, you'd be fine, although it's made with lifting hot lids and handling hot utensils in mind rather than food handling. The mitt is made from heat-resistant aramid fibers, which can withstand temperatures up to 425 degrees Fahrenheit--plenty of protection for your typical cookout. The mitt is lined with cotton fabric, so it's comfortable to wear, and if gets a little dirty, you can just wash the entire glove.

The Pit Grilling Mitt makes grabbing hot utensils a lot easier. It's reversible so that whether you're right or left-handed, you're able to use it. It's also stretchy for cooks with big hands. The extra-long stretchable cuff fits to your arm and protects your forearm. The glove measures 13 inches long by 6.25 inches wide. The mitt is available from Williams-Sonoma. The Pit Grilling Mitt is available for $19.95, although a dedicated cook may find that two come in handy.
