    We use those at work. The guys routinely handle 500 deg + metal and I will tell you that they buy some time but you're gonna feel the heat after more than a few seconds.

    Go to your local welding supply company and get leather welding gloves

    I have a pair of welding gloves that the cuffs reach almost to the elbow. With them I can carry the hot ash pan out to the garden and just start to feel the heat.

    I've used these for years. Get a dark colored glove, she might not like the white one's looking dirty after the first use, and I'd imagine the kevlar type gloves end up getting splinters stuck in the fiber

    Stay away from TIG welding gloves they aren't much more than fancy long drivers glove

    I have found that the wood stove gloves they sell near the stoves are clumsy. I know they may just need to be broke in but that could take a long time.

    I use the gloves that came with my arc welder. Very supple for heavy duty gloves. Maybe check the welding equipment part of a good hardware store.

    I have become religious about using the gloves now. I get better wood placement and I'm not banging around on the firebricks and secondary tubes.

    It's just one of many things that I learned from this forum.
