Stark Safe Cut Gloves are designed to protect your hands from cuts during food preparation. They are also great for protecting you from bacteria on your food and your food from bacteria on your hands, creating a layer between your hands and the food. They are lightweight and tight fitting for ease of movement. They are 4 times stronger than leather and have Level 5 cut resistant protection.
So that’s what they are. Now let me tell you what I think. Before I can talk about the product I should give you a little background. As I’ve said before, I am very passionate about cooking. Unfortunately my love for cooking has not transferred to dexterity with kitchen tools. I have basically been banned from trying any recipe involving a lot of chopping unless my husband is home to do it. He’s tired of calling our neighbor (a sports trainer) to bandage me up, or even worse, another trip to the emergency room with our three kids in tow.
At this point I was willing to try anything that my keep me from cutting myself. It’s not fun having to plan the recipes you want to try around whether or not your husband will be home to chop, or possibly drive you to the ER. I was excited when the gloves arrived, but definitely skeptical. I tried them on and they fit very well. I was happy about this but expected that a glove could be produced that fits well (it’s done all the time with leather gloves).
My real skepticism came when I actually had to put a glove on and try to cut something with a knife. I decided to go the safe route first. I pulled out a knife and attempted to just cut the glove. We have very expensive knives and keep them very sharp so this was a real test. I have to say I was honestly shocked that I couldn’t make any kind of rip or whole in the glove. I tried slicing it, poking it, pushing the point through it and no matter what I did the glove was not harmed in any way.
Now it was time to trust the glove and put my hand in it! I tried holding fruit and slicing it. I used it for meats and several different vegetables. Not only did the gloves protect my hands but it gave me more confidence in my cutting skills because I didn’t hesitate for fear that I might hurt myself.
These gloves would be great if you worked in a commercial kitchen or butchery, but even better for the home cook who is not proficient with knives, like me! Now I can choose any recipe with any type of prep work and not have to see my husband roll his eyes and gassing up the car for the next trip to the ER.
