When you’re working in the kitchen preparing food for a party or event, we recommend using a pair of disposable vinyl gloves. These gloves are nice and light weight as well as loose-fitting. This makes them super easy to put on and are great for tasks like tossing salads or making sandwiches.
For more intricate food preparation tasks like dicing vegetables, where you need to maintain dexterity, we recommend a pair of disposable nitrile gloves. These gloves will be more fitted to your hand, allowing for tactile sensitivity. Additionally, nitrile doesn’t pose a threat of allergic reaction and it is a material that is really strong and can withstand risks of punctures or tears. Another perk of nitrile gloves is that since they are inherently chemical resistant, they are perfect to use when chopping up spicy peppers, because they will protect your skin from the burning sensations that are often a result of handling jalapenos or other similar peppers.
For post-party clean-up we recommend a good pair of vinyl or nitrile gloves. Nitrile gloves are resistant to most common household cleaning chemicals, so they are a natural choice.
Using gloves in preparation and clean-up will ensure that you and your guests are as safe as possible, by minimizing the spread of germs as well as cross-contamination.
