I got these for my son, and have also used them myself. They do a good job of protecting from the heat, but he has fairly large hands and complains that the thumbs are too small for him, (fine for me though). I have not tested them to see how LONG I could hold onto a hot item, but pulling out cookie sheets and roasting pans, I have had no problems. These gloves are knitted, but have a lining with doesnalt stretch as much as the knitted part would.

Very nice capacity and heats water VERY fast. Minimum amount you can heat is 0.5 liters, which is perfect for 2 cups of tea. If I am only using the minimum, it took 3 minutes to go from the refrigerator, (filtered water), to a full rolling boil. The lid opening is big enough that I CAN get my hand inside to wash it thoroughly, which many other ones I looked at, (and even purchased), did not allow. Many other pots are cheaper, but I wanted one that did not have any plastic in contact with the heating water, and this fills the bill perfectly.
