This Orka Pro HTS (High Tensile Strength) oven mitt has been designed to protect your hands during short periods of contact with hot surfaces up to temperatures of 250 degrees Celsius, including kitchen and barbecue applications. Orka oven mitts are the only waterproof cooking mitt that also protects your hands from boiling liquids (with the exception of fatty food stuffs). Even if the glove gets wet, it will still provide the same high level protection. This Orka mitt is hygienic and easy to clean - it can be washed under the tap, in the dishwasher or in your washing machine. Okra is the only non-absorbent and non-porous mitt and therefore is the most hygienic mitt available.
