We get several requests from people wanting to know which oyster shucking glove to buy. Here are some popular options among different price ranges and quality:
|About $4.50 - Chef Revival 1000 Oyster Shucking Glove|
This is the first glove I started shucking with. It lasted over a year and over 400 oysters were shucked with it. Because of the low price, we recommend buying several pairs. Soon you'll be teaching your friends to shuck oysters and having a pair of gloves for them is a good idea.
|About $10.00 Cut Resistant Glove|
|About $8.00 - Cut Resistant Gloves - 100% Kevlar|
These are very popular but not my favorite. They get wet very fast and I find them hard to clean.
|About $30 - Youngstown Glove with Kevlar|
This glove will last you a long time and protect your hand very well.
A popular purchase with good ratings.
|About $94 - Stainless Steel Mesh Hand Glove|
If you want the best, why not purchase this oyster shucking glove or this one:
|About $210 - Kuchenprofi Stainless Steel Mesh Oyster Glove|
Gloves are important to wear when shucking and handling oysters. Not only because you will be using a sharp knife but also because some oysters can be very sharp.
Enjoy shucking and eating oysters, just be safe and purchase the right oyster shucking glove that fits your need and budget.
