Review of Scorpio Neoprene Coated Gloves
My wife and I, now both in our 70s, with our children out of the house and well-established in their respective professions, are extreme cooks. We rarely purchase food prepared outside the home. When it came time to move to our present home, we spent around $200,000 (you read that correctly) to construct the ultimate kitchen for our personal serious cooking purposes. We installed a commercial stove, a commercial rubber floor (beautiful, as well as very safe around food prep, and a dream to clean!!. but very expensive), two dishwashers (one of them a commercial Hobart 3 minute cycle machine) and, because I am a baker of European artisan breads, a 20 quart Hobart mixer/dough kneeder, as well as several additional Hobart mixing machines (8 in all). Hobart has informed me that to its knowledge, I am the only person in the U.S. with a commercial Hobart dishwasher in his home.
My wife, now retired, had previously been a registered dietitian in both institutional practice and private practice in New York and New Jersey. My father's family owned and operated several famous New York City restaurants. My mother's mother was an accomplished cook in a famous resort hotel and thereafter ran a luncheonette in Newark, New Jersey with my grandfather. So one could say our family of skinny people did its share to feed others over many decades. My grandparents would have had an easier time for certain if Ansell Scorpio gloves had been invented by that time!
You will be as pleased as I have been for many years if you treat yourselves to Scorpio gloves.
I learned cooking from my mother, and later, in my 20s and 30s, after living in Europe, taught myself to become an artisan bread baker of European bread specialties, much of that being native French breads. All that cooking and baking leads to a lot of washing of utensils and implements, as well as keeping electrical food preparation equipment absolutely sanitary by NSF (National Sanitary Foundation) standards. Ansell Scorpio neoprene gloves with interlock interior knit lining have always been our preference when it comes to cleaning food preparation equipment. Scorpio gloves truly stand up both to severe wear and to the various cleaning solutions and products which serious cooks encounter in the process of maintaining a spotless food preparation and cooking area.
I have been using Scorpio gloves for many years. They allow the wearer to use the hottest possible water, the most abrasive of cleaning pads and the harshest liquid or powdered cleaning products, as well as isolating the wearer effectively from the hottest water and strongest grease cutters. They are launderable with excellent results: following the spin cycle, just turn them lining side out when drying on a line (never use an electric dryer!!!) and allow them to dry completely in the open air. A chop stick or the handle of a wooden spoon are excellent for turning the glove completely inside out (and when dry, outside in) after washing. They are then as good as new following repetitive washing -- just turn them lining side in once again to start wearing them.
Ansell Scorpio gloves outlast by many weeks -- or even months -- what you will be able to purchase in a supermarket or similar store. In addition, Scorpio gloves are offered in a sufficient number of sizes that each man or woman can find a perfect, and supremely comfortable, fit, an important consideration when one is doing heavy duty cleaning. For safety sake, your gloves should never been too large or too small, so always find a way to test glove size to your own unique hands before you buy a number of pairs!!!
You won't go wrong or be disappointed with Scorpio gloves to speed your cleanup time, whether you are an extreme cook or whether you cook only a day or two a week. They also excel in cleaning floors and tile bathrooms. Having tested them for as many years as I have, I rate them a 10 out of 10. Whether you are a man or a woman, protect your hands from the abuse of cleaning products with Scorpio neoprene gloves! Nothing sold in a supermarket can come anywhere near the comfort, protection, and longevity of Scorpios!!!
