    A few months back, my grandma (the best grandma to ever live in the whole world) was choppin' up a storm in the kitchen when a serious of unfortunate events occurred. Fast-forward to a couple dozen stitches later and here we are — talking about NoCry's cut-resistant gloves.

    She's fine, BTW! But right after my grandma cut her hand I ordered these bad boys for her. And honestly, I'm kicking myself for not ordering them earlier! I'd written about them, been so impressed by them, and yet I never thought to swoop up a pair for my bomb-ass grandma.

    They're pretty f#@%ing awesome! These gloves have a totally sleek, lightweight design so they don't add a ton of bulk, they're machine-washable, and they're basically made out of the Superman of materials.

    They're available in four sizes (small through extra large), for just under $11 a pair.

    And you're gonna need these gloves to give you that superhuman protection — because accidents in the kitchen are real (as proven by my awesome AF grandma and a slew of slightly injured Amazon reviewers)!

    "I lopped off the end of my thumb last week while cutting sweet potatoes. After regaining consciousness I purchased a pair of these NoCry cut-resistant gloves and couldn't be happier." —Philip C Crawford

    "Ordered these after losing a battle with my mandolin slicer and partially cutting off the end of my ring finger. I won't use the mandolin again without these gloves! Santa put these in my stocking for Christmas and I used them later that day to thinly slice potatoes with the mandolin for a gratin. I experimented to see if I could cut the glove first before actually using the mandolin again. And I couldn't cut it!! Yeah! Quick shipping from Amazon and a nice follow-up email from the manufacturer." —Wilhelmina

    "I bought the gloves because I got two nasty cuts in quick succession from a cheese grater. Anyone who has had injuries to their fingers knows how difficult it is to continue to do everyday activities and meal preparation while still protecting your wound. I received the gloves quickly after my order and put them into use immediately that evening. I am so impressed. My fingers/hands were protected from my very sharp grater and knife while I prepared dinner. I bought two pairs, one to keep and one to give as a gift. I am now going to buy a third pair in a larger size for a friend who also likes to cook but suffers from occasional run-ins with mandolins, graters, and knives. Great product!" —O'Hare

    People love these gloves (as proven by their 4.6-star rating and 10K+ reviews) but do they work? Yes! The answer is yes and I can say that confidently because reviewers have, in the name of science, straight up tried chopping off their hands while wearing these bad boys!

    "For the past week, I have applied moderate pressure against the gloves with a shucking knife to test their resistance. So far, I have experienced no penetration to my hands. And the fiber from the glove is still intact." —Sam Huang

    "I tested these gloves by using fish scaler because my husband goes fishing a lot and we need to clean a lot of fish every month. It works very well. No cut on my hands and the gloves look good too." —Felicia Bao

    "Exactly as they look in the pictures! They fit great and will easily become part of my standard workflow. I have not, thankfully, tested their cut resistance other than poking them lightly with my knife. However, given my dexterity and recent history of bad decisions, a real test will come soon and likely without warning — much like the slice I gave my finger about three weeks ago." —Chris Weaver

    One guy even took a machete to them! A MACHETE!!!!! That's Quentin Tarantino level shit right there!

    Bonus: The gloves work with your phone's touchscreen, so if you're wearing them while you cook but referencing a recipe from your tablet you don't have to worry about taking them off over and over again to scroll through!

    These gloves are literal finger savers, and you shouldn't wait until you've lost one to think about buying them!

    "I volunteer at a local animal shelter and sometimes walk the dogs and also train them w/ sausages. The doggies get super excited about these treats so I bought these to ensure my fingers don't get injured from them thinking my extremities are hot dogs. So far, so good! When I wear the gloves, I've noticed that dogs are more careful (weird!) and gentle when grabbing the treats out of my hand. The material is not too thick, not too thin — which is what I love about these gloves. They are just right that I can move my fingers around freely and not worry about them interfering w/ my activities. And yes — I have tried to slice my hand with my Shun chef's knife while cutting fish for sashimi and I am happy to report that the gloves kept my hands safe." —Hannah Y.

    "I wasn't sure how these gloves would keep me safe, but no easier way to learn than just take a knife to them. But I did not. I was wearing them while working on my car with sharp sheet metal and very sharp razors. I'm one to admit I'm clumsy and always getting hurt, especially my hands. I cannot tell you how many times the razor hit my hand in the slicing motion. Every time I immediately looked at my hand, took off the gloves, and waited for blood — but NO CUTS AND NO BLOOD! These are my new favorite gloves. Also, they fit perfect when ur wearing them. I didn't have to take them off once to grab items. I've already told my family about these gloves and I think everyone should have a pair. Think of these gloves as a cup of coffee or tea — you can't leave home without them. I love these gloves, they work and fit perfectly. 10 thumbs UP!👍👍" —mike d.

    Get them from Amazon for $10.99 (available in small, medium, large, and extra large).
