The Great British Baking Gear

Great British Baking Show Oven Mitts (Oven Gloves)

June 20, 2021

TLDR: The Great British Baking Show Oven Mitts have been Denby (Discontinued) (Amazon Link), Lakeland Heavy Duty Double Oven Glove, ideal TEXTILES Windsor Stripe Single Oven Glove Mitt, and are now the Immaculate Textiles Premium Heat Resistant Oven Gloves/Mitt.

Oven Mitts, Oven Gloves, and Double Oven Gloves Oh My!

Cuisinart Quilted Double Oven Mitt - The best double oven mitt I can find in the USA. Not from the show :sorrow: (Amazon Link)

If your a fan of horrible burns on your hands and arms go ahead and skip this blog post. But if you're not a fan of burning yourself, and you're curious about the oven mitts (aka - oven gloves) from The Great British Baking Show - you're in the right spot!

So throughout the seasons the oven mitts on The Great British Baking Show have changed quite a few times. They have had long stretches of using the same oven glove, but it seems like they are frequently discontinued.

Apparently the oven mitts do not travel well, and most of the gloves from particualr brands are not readily available in the USA. As always I've linked to the manufacturer's website, and presented a nice option that you can find in the USA if you're looking for the double oven glove.

What the Bakers Use - Immaculate Textiles (Seasons 10 & 11)

For the last couple seasons (10 and 11) the bakers on The Great British Baking Show have used the Immaculate Textiles Premium Heat Resistant Oven Gloves/Mitt.

If I were going to try to track down any of the oven mitts from The Great British Baking Show that are not available in the US - these would be them. Just for the sake of not getting burned, and general safety I'm glad the bakers have these. Also they look really nice!

They're extra long, 12.5 inches in fact, to cover your arms. They have a non-slip silicone pattern on them, and are good up to 480F (250C). That is pretty impressive, unless you're grabbing things out of your industrial oven this should be just fine!

Additionally, they seem to be made of high quality washing machine safe materials. Now if they'd only sell them in the US.

What The Bakers Use - Lakeland

Lakeland Heavy Duty Double Oven Glove (Not available on US Amazon)

For a good long while the bakers have had access to the Lakeland Heavy Duty Double Oven Glove

I'm not sure if Lakeland manufactured the gloves from the first few series. They were completely uniform in color, these Lakeland ones have a different color border.

Personally, I'm a fan of these! They look pretty awesome, and at the same time are quite functional. These are one of the pieces of equipment on The Great British Baking Show that made me say "what?!" Before the show, I'd never seen double oven gloves and I can completely see the benefit of having the extra arm protection.

If you can get your mitts on these go for it! (haha oh me, pun intended!) However, I'm having quite the time finding Lakeland Double Oven Gloves in the US. Amazon (link) has some nice double oven mitts - in particular take a look at the Cuisinart double oven mitts!

What The Bakers Used (mostly discontinued)

Originally the bakers on The Great British Baking Show used Denby oven mitts. Denby is a UK based company in Derbyshire. Basically they discovered that the clay there was really good for making pottery and they've been doing so since 1809!

Seldomly, with the release of a new line of flatware / bake-ware they will release oven mitts with the set. The bakers in Season 3 can be seen using these oven mitts with the tags still on them. I was trying to identify them and then was like "oh."

As they're limited releases and currently discontinued it'd be hard for me to say "go get these they are awesome!"

While we're talking about discontinued options The Great British Baking Show also touted the Ideal Textiles Single Oven Mitt for quite some time. These clock in sub 3 pounds (about $4). At this price I'm farily skeptical of them.

However, if you're a fan of the look of the Ideal Textiles Single Oven Mitts - Williams and Sonoma makes some VERY similar ones, that are quite heavy duty. I have these and love them. (I really should get an affiliate link for Williams Sonoma - they have some awesome products).
