If You Use a Mandoline, You Need These Protective Gloves

Love your fingertips.

Love your fingertips.

You like your fingers, right?

OXO's mandoline —but she took issue with the food holder that prevents your fingers from coming in contact with the blade. Hand guards for this tool can be cumbersome, clunky, and difficult to attach to the food, thereby tempting cooks to go without them and risk safety. That's why, if you're using a mandoline, you should wear a cutting glove. Often used in food service, cut-resistant gloves are usually made from Spectra-fiber—a material used in bullet proof vests—so you know they're legit. (In fact, while reviewing a few of the options available, stuffed the glove fingers with hot dogs and ran a knife over them—the hot dogs emerged unscathed. You need these things.) When buying a good cut-resistant glove, look for one with a tight weave, suggests the folks at Cook's Illustrated . You want something woven tightly enough that the fibers won't loosen and fall apart, but with enough stretch that you can easily move your fingers enough to switch out your mandoline blades and grip the protective guard or the food you're slicing. The DEX FIT Level 5 Cut Resistant Gloves are a good option that fits all of this criteria—and they're on sale for Amazon Prime Day 2019 for just 10 bucks. And if there's one thing I know, that's a whole lot cheaper than a trip to the emergency room to fix mandoline-mangled fingers (sorry to employ scare tactics here, but it's true!). Chop carrots without fear with these crazy-looking gloves. And if you're worried you'll only get a single use out of these, there's no reason you couldn't also wear cut-resistant gloves when you're using knives—particularly for more intricate knife work or when cutting something awkward like a knobby Read more: epicurious

2 pair in my kitchen 😉 Orrrrrr you could just use the kitchen towel you already own Donating a chunk of finger to one of these during a dinner party is always entertaining. Probably why my sister bought me a pair of these gloves last Christmas Is that canned cranberry sauce? This x 100! So true! Needed stitches last year from cutting fennel on one of these bastards.
