I suppose it's not fair to rate them a 1 since they fit and they're kinda cool to wear because they're purple. But for my primary use, preparing food, they rate poorly because they smell. And not in a good way. They smell all chemically and I don't want to transfer that to my food. Creeps me out just using them around food. I suppose if you use them to change diapers and clean toilets, having that smell is useful, even preferable. But for preparing food, not so much.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
I can't find the Nitrile gloves in stores in sizes and the One Size Fits All are too large for my hands and move around, come off, etc. When dealing with soiled diapers etc. it is important to me that the gloves stay on and not have to fight them to do so. This is a good price on them too. They are more expensive at the company I just started using to order diapers and chucks.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
