NFT: Food prep gloves?

moze1021 : 11/17/2023 1:54 pm
Does anyone use gloves for food prep?

With Thanksgiving coming up I know my hands are going to be all up in that turkey...

Would be nice to not have to spend the day washing my hands over and over until they are dried out and bloody this year!

I've tried to find good options on Amazon but seems there are a lot of suspect brands and I worry about them being safe. If anyone has any specific recommendations, that would be awesome.

I would suggest nitrile gloves

Sysco brand i just saw on amazon should be fine.
I buy the nitrile gloves from Costco

Good for cooking, plumbing, grouting, whatever. Cheap and good quality.
I use condoms

Make sure they're food-safe.

Easy to find and inexpensive. Yes, I use them sometimes, mostly when handling raw meat.

OK thanks fellas..

Need to make a Costco run so I'll check for them there.
I’ve used this brand from Amazon and been happy

OKIAAS Black/Pink Vinyl Disposable Gloves Latex Free, Food Grade, 5 mil, Cooking
Here’s a tip, if you are also doing a lot of cutting and slicing for your food prep get the: NoCry Premium Cut Resistant Gloves Food Grade, also from Amazon. They’re the kind that deli workers use to protect their hands from the sharp knife blades. Buy the vinyl disposable gloves one size larger and wear them over the cut resistant gloves.
For a short food prep: any vinyl gloves (not latex) will do.

They are cheap and disposable. (Latex is fine for cleaning and other non-food prep.

For a lengthy food prep get a pair of Playtex gloves, or their equivalent.

You get a better grip than with vinyl. They are comfortable even under hot tap water. When they get messy, or when you want to use your bare hands, you wash them with hot soapy water just like washing your hands, dry them with a kitchen towel, and then you can take them off until you need them for the next bit of food prep.

Your wife already knows all this.
You can use gloves

but that doesn't stop you from transfering possible salmonella to other items you are prepping and cooking if you aren't changing them everytime you go to another dish.

Nappy Thanksgiving
