A burn-prone baker asks: What are your favorite oven mitts?

I'm in the market for some new kitchen mitts. I have thick cloth mitten-like mitts and silicone hot spot squares. I prefer the cloth ones because they protect my whole hand and wrist... but they seem to shrink a bit more every time I wash them. I like that the silicone squares can go in the dishwasher but I find them too slippery and I've burned myself too many times. I really need something that covers my whole hand (and based on the scars, I'd say to mid forearm!).

When I tried on silicone "orkas" at the store I thought they might not give enough control. The "ove" gloves look interesting, but do they work?

I'd love to know what works (or doesn't work for you). Thanks!
