Cast iron gets hot and stays hot, so hand protection is a must in active kitchens. Our Leather Handle Cover is great for stovetop use, but we wanted to design a comfortable heat protection solution for heavy-duty cast iron cooking with the Field Dutch Oven and larger Field Skillet sizes.
We worked with the team at Queen City Dry Goods to design easy-on, easy-off leather mitts that can handle cookware heated in max temperature ovens while retaining excellent dexterity for the kinds of quick grabs where most kitchen and campfire burns occur.
Every hand is different, and we’ve endeavored to create a shape that’s comfortable for everyone, regardless of size.
To determine your ideal size, measure from the base of your palm to the tip of your middle finger. Our sizes, measured in inches, correspond to this measurement. If you’re closer to 6 ¾” or prefer a snug fit, go for the small-medium. If you’re closer to 8”, like a roomier fit, or aren’t quite sure, you’ll be safe with the medium-large.
Made from durable full-grain leather, insulated with cotton batting and backed with black suede. Hand-stitched and assembled in Vermont.
Field Leather Oven mitts are made to withstand heat from cast iron cookware coming out of 550°F ovens, and designed to be donned and doffed with a single hand. We like working with leather goods because, like cast iron, they evolve and develop unique and well-earned wear patterns through time and use.
We were introduced to the folks at Queen City Dry Goods in 2020, and discovered a workshop in line with how we design and make things at Field. After months of testing and refinements, we’re extremely proud of our first collaboration.
For over 20 years, Matt Renna and the Queen City Dry Goods team have been making leather goods by hand in Burlington and Vermont’s Champlain Valley. Our Leather Oven Mitts are made in the USA, stitched and assembled by hand from start to finish.
These mitts are made to handle hot cast iron cookware, and will crease, scuff, and develop a fine patina over time, following the unique pattern of time and use in your kitchen. Like all great leather goods, they’ll settle into an exact fit dictated by the way you use them.
Mitts are designed to handle cookware heated at temperatures up to 550°F. Use to handle hot cookware, but don’t leave mitts in the oven or exposed to open flame. Exercise caution while handling hot foods and cookware.
