I have seen that too, from experienced chefs no less. Wearing one set of gloves for hours, across multiple tasks. I wear them when reaching in to liquids, like moving product in a brine, or when I am prepping chicken. I might go through 5 or more pair on a single task. Like any tool, they have their place, but can easily be abused. Used properly and in conjunction with hand washing and sanitizer buckets (which I've also seen abused by never being changed out), they are...
