No thanks, I don't want to prevent hand injuries.
But remember that just because you’re taking a holiday doesn’t mean that safety will be.
In honor of Thanksgiving, we chose three of our favorite gloves and figured out how they could be incorporated into preparing Thanksgiving dinner.
While everyone claims that their grandma makes the best stuffing, every recipe is pretty much the same thing:
But all of that stuff needs to be chopped up — probably while your sister-in-law, Kathy, makes passive-aggressive comments about the decor in your living room.
Take the risk out of accidentally cutting something — like your hand — with our Sure Knit® Cut-Resistant Food Industry Glove. With ANSI level A8 cut protection, these FDA-compliant gloves don’t mess around. They are also treated with Ultra-Fresh for a 99.9% antimicrobial status and are easily laundered.
Even Kathy won’t be able to judge your choice in hand protection!
Have you ever dropped freshly baked apple pie filling on your bare hand? It feels like molten lava.
You could use a standard oven mitt to take the pies out of the oven. But here are two problems with that:
Our Chemstop™ Terry-lined Neoprene Gloves are the perfect solution to this proverbial pickle. With heat protection up to 390° F and a diamond-grip finish to the palm increase grip, the neoprene dip makes cleaning them a breeze.
As an added bonus, they are flame resistant and can handle (brief) exposure to flame… in case your baking skills are rusty.
It’s 2017… Thanksgiving is going to be a bit unconventional. What’s more unconventional than this suggestion for carving the turkey?
Let’s set the scene:
After a couple of glasses of wine, Uncle Ted offers to divvy up the turkey. With electric turkey carver in hand, Ted lines up the first cut and presses the trigger. The blade starts spinning and next thing you know, Ted has nicked the back of his hand. Effectively ruining Thanksgiving.
This could have been prevented with our Endura® Hi-Viz Cut-Resistant Chainsaw Gloves. Lined with eight layers of woven Kevlar® on the back of the hand, these gloves are designed to stop a chainsaw running at 3,140 feet per minute.
So they’ll be able to stop Uncle Ted with his trigger-happy finger and Black & Decker electric knife!
So there you have it, three gloves to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. For our friends not celebrating Thanksgiving today, replace the word Thanksgiving with Christmas and read this post in a month!
