When The Grill Glove was put on sale, we new it had a chance to become one of the best as seen on TV cooking products that come out in years. I tried very hard before I bought one to look for a weakness in its design or manufacture, but try as I might I just could not seem to find anything out there that refuted the claims in the ad. So when I ordered it, I fully expected it to work.
As seen on TV items do a good job of solving complex everyday problems with simple solutions. The Grill Glove is a shining example of this. The problem I find with grilling is to gain control over the food while it is on the grill. Traditional Grilling Accessories are not easy to use.
Perhaps I’m worse than most people when I’m on the grill, but I can’t be the only one who finds tongs useless. I think for a lot of people the Grill Glove is an idea whose time has come. It looks like a big gardening glove, but it is made of 100% food grade silicone and is heat resistant which allows you to grab the food and have control over it.
It is now very easy to turn your hot dogs without dropping them. You can place the chops, chicken and beef, but you can now easily spread them around as you add more. The hook is that you will never get burned and you can get rid of virtually all other bbq accessories. It’s also dishwasher safe and seems to clean much easier than other products when you wash by hand.
In my first real attempt using the Grill Glove our grill was too crowded to make corn cobs, so we decided to boil it. It turns out you can just reach your hands in the pot and grab the corn without worries. You will not get burned or scalded. It is actually in the kitchen where I use the Grill Glove the most. It makes boiling and peeling eggs hastle free and shrimp boils are a snap. It is amazing how much time it saves me in the kitchen and this seemed like an after thought in the commercial.
You can’t find the Grill Glove in stores yet, but I think it is only a matter of time. Products this good do not stay hidden for long and just as in the As Seen On TV market, this looks like a retailers dream.
