Militec Silicone BBQ Gloves 13th August 2015

The #1 Rated Brightest LED Lantern Militec Ultra Bright LED Camping Lantern for Hiking, Emergencies, Survival Use, Very Bright, Compact, Military Grade Plastic, Water Resistant, Robust Construction 10 Year Warranty

Militec is not a household name but are starting to roll out products with the philosophy that technologies formerly reserved for the military should be available to the consumer.  In practice that means a high degree of reliability, durability and functionality.  It may seem like a strange business ethos but there are numerous precedents in history for the military driving commercial change - the most obvious one being the DARPA net which went on to become the Internet few of us can live without today.

The second product to be released are a pair of Silicone BBQ Gloves:

 

Readers can click on the above images for a closer look.

Following up from their first product (a 30-LED Lantern) these BBQ Gloves are also sold exclusively through Amazon and have a number of unique features in comparison to similar products listed on Amazon.

Firstly, they are 25% thicker than the vast majority of other Silicone BBQ gloves around.  Militec want their products to offer a higher degree of utlitity than their competitors and in this case that is measure by how well these gloves protect the hands of the wearer.

Their tests show that these gloves can handle a temperature of 100 degrees greater than their competitors products for the same amount of time or provide and extra 10-15 seconds protection at the same temperature.  We asked how these tests were conducted and it appears that the gloves were doused in lighter fluid and set alight. We do not advise anyone to try this at home.

They have also been designed to give a strong "vice-like" grip and in tests this reviewer found he was able to open jars that would have been impossible without a specialist tool.  Dipping hands into boiling water is strange to behold with these gloves and they only became uncomfortably hot after almost a minute so they really work.

There are numerous other uses for these gloves from changing hot light bulbs to BBQs to Oven use. One great feature is that they are easy to clean with soapy water and dishwasher friendly and should last a very long time.  The only disadvantage (common for all gloves of this type) is that they restrict delicate manipulation with the fingers.  Obviously they are not designed for surgical use and should be taken off when tying laces or measuring out ingredients!

We asked Militec about other similar looking products on the market and they told us that there are identical products available but they actually inspect the manufacturer in China who make the product to a much higher specification including destructive testing of random samples and subject samples to ensure strict quality control.  This is an ongoing process by inspection agents they have hired in China to make spot inspections.  This sort of quality control is essential in building a reputable brand.

 

Conclusion

Whether you need Gloves for BBQ or Oven use or just a reliable way to protect your hands during DIY tasks then the Militec Heavy Duty Silicone BBQ Gloves seem to fit the bill.  Couple that with the 10-year guarantee Militec are throwing in and we think they have a real winner on their hands.  Currently this product is only available from Amazon in the USA but Militec say they will be launching eventually in the UK and Europe as well.  They also have a host of other products to launch in the next few months and we will bring you reviews of those in due course.

The #1 Rated Brightest LED Lantern Militec Ultra Bright LED Camping Lantern for Hiking, Emergencies, Survival Use, Very Bright, Compact, Military Grade Plastic, Water Resistant, Robust Construction 10 Year Warranty

o read by without straining your eyes? The solution is here. The Militec 30 LED Collapsible Lantern has been carefully manufactured to give a lifetime of reliable and hassle free use. We have tested the output at over 60 Lumens (actual Lumens and not the exagerated figost manufacturers claim) from 3 AAA batteries - we recommend hybrid rechargeables such as "Good To Go" or "Eneloop" to be certain that you'll never be out of juice when you need it most (and high capacity rechargeables can double the runtime from 10-15 hours to over 25 hours of continous use). Operation is very simple, you just extend the lantern and it switches on, collapse it and it switches off. We have stress tested the design over thousands of on/off operations and it works smoothly each time. This is the product we would want if the lights went out or we went on a long camping trip or indeed to see us through a collapse of civilisation because we know it will work reliably and satisfactorily year after year. We are confident you can place your faith in us and consequently offer a 10 year warranty on ts LED Lantern since we are certain it will give you a lifetime of reliable use.
