I refuse to wear gloves unless I'm prepping raw fish or chicken where it's slimy and can get under my nails or if I have any cuts on my hand. Other wise, I use different pairs of utensils for different things. Have a bleach bucket on every station, and wash my hands at least once every 20 minutes. It is far to easy to cross contaminate with gloves on. Plus, I hate when they melt to your hands when you're reaching in an oven or too close to the grill or saute. Looking back at the fast food places I've worked (when I had no knowledge of cooking) where they made us wear gloves, I realize I cross contaminated so many things because I wasn't changing gloves every 2 seconds. At least when there's wetness or a texture on my hands, it reminds me to disinfect them.
