MINERVA, Ohio, May 16, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Summit Glove Inc. has introduced the latest innovation to the food service industry with the first of its kind liquid proof and contact heat food grade Silicone Mitt. Unlike existing cookie cutter injection molded silicone mitts that are not flexible and uncomfortable to wear, the unique seam sealed technology and ergonomic construction of the Solo Mitt allows the mitt to be completely flexible for longer wear time and comfort. The Solo Mitt protects at 650 degrees F of contact heat exposure for workers who prepare food on grills, stove tops, ovens and fryers.
"The Solo Mitt is a game changer in the commercial kitchen," said James Hull, owner of Summit Glove. "It will help reduce accidental burns that occur from gloves or mitts that cannot handle higher heat contact in the kitchen." "Workers being injured is one of the major concerns and costs in the food service industry, as worker safety is the highest priority for all kitchen personnel." According to the Burn Foundation of Philadelphia - The Food Service Industry experiences the highest number of burns of any employment sector in the United States, about 12,000 each year. Cooks, food handlers, kitchen workers, and wait staff are all listed among the top 50 occupations at risk for on-the-job burn injury.
The Solo Mitt offers sealed seam technology making it completely liquid proof unlike other competitors with open seam products exposing the interior to liquids and grease, causing high bacteria counts which can lead to contamination of food. The Solo Mitt has 100% food grade silicone beads that channel liquids for added grip and heat dispersion. The Solo Mitt meets the rigorous demands of the European CE EN388 & EN407 performance criteria for high abrasion, cut and tear resistance offering a mitt for long lasting duties in a commercial kitchen.
The thumb area is Kevlar reinforced for abrasion and cut resistance. The thumb area is ergonomically designed for increased comfort and ease of donning and doffing.
The Solo Mitt is available now in 3 sizes, small, medium and large and 15", 18" and 21" lengths.
We will be showing the Solo Mitt at the 2018 NRA Show at the McCormick Center, Chicago Ill. May 19th-22nd. Stop by our booth #10549 for a demonstration.
