Both products look to be of good quality but the gloves are a bit small. My husband has larger hands and these gloves are definitely too small for him. We are looking forward to using the bear claws once it warms up a bit to allow us to pull the smoker out.
I knew I was going to love these items and I do! I have some other silicone products around the house that also work great. First thing I did was throw them in the dishwasher on the hottest setting. That's what matters to me. They came out fine. The gloves actually fit and move better than I expected. Maybe slightly stiffer than a cloth oven mitt but the independent fingers actually make it a lot more agile. The little knobbies give a nice grip. Now the bear paws, I haven't actually shredded with them yet but they're sharp and obviously durable. Plus they'd make a great self defense weapon if needed... anyways I couldn't be happier. Silicone is the future of household heat protection. They shoulda done this decades ago. I received these products at a discount in exchange for my honest review. That said, I don't spiff up my reviews for anybody. These things deserve every star, they're awesome.
Well I've been needing a set of each of these for a long time. It's especially great that they came in a combination package together. The bear claws are made of non heat conductive plastic, well made, and seem to be fairly sharp. The gloves are pretty thick material, I used them to get some stuff out of the oven tonight and it barely warmed my hand. I would normally wear a 1x or 2x sized glove so they are a little snug on me but altogether I would say a quality product. Im not used to gloves, hats, shoes, etc. fitting in a one sized fits all scenario anyhow. But it would be nice if they came in sizes all the same.

Family and I really like these gloves and the meat pullers are a great extra! Make sure you watch your temps with these gloves as they only go up to 425 deg and after that you can smell them "melting". Overall a good item. God bless.
This product looks great. I bought my husband a pellet smoker for Christmas and this seemed like a good accompaniment. I was a little surprised that the claws are plastic (a very thick, hard plastic mind you) rather than metal, but it says they can handle up to 425 degrees so we'll see. I'm convinced that this will work much better than my old method for shredding Kalua pork, which was two forks. Same idea, just much more time consuming. My only other complaint is that this is promoted as a set and the gloves come in a separate box than the claws. I wish it were packaged more attractively because this would make a terrific gift for any barbecue fan! Overall, definitely worth the regular price and I can see this as a gift for many men in our lives!
