No one enjoys accidentally cutting themselves while using knives in the kitchen. Today I'll show you how I use a steel mesh glove to help keep me safe, especially when I'm time crunched and cutting up a lot of meat or poultry.

A steel mesh glove is also useful when operating a meat slicer or mandolin. 

Pairs range in price and quality from around $7 a pair to more than $50. Be sure to check if the one you plan to use labeled as Food Grade.

Keep in mind, steel mesh gloves provide cut-resistance not full cut protection. 

Till next time, stay safe and remember to savor the food you eat.
