What are the best oven mitts out there?

I got another painful burn on my hand last night, handling a hot cast iron dutch oven through a single oven mitt. I frequently have to double up (hotpad plus mitt) to avoid this. My current oven mitts are just some standard-issue heavy cloth models that came with my wife.
I still have a scar on a thumb from a burn I got through a silicon hotpad over a year ago, so I'm really not convinced those are a good choice. I have moderately large hands. I want to be able to handle cast iron in a 500F oven, work on the grill and not worry about steam from my pressure cooker.
Cheaper is better.
