Oven mitts. I hate ‘em. I don’t hate that I have to use them, because frankly I like having the use of my hands and not having them burned to a crisp. But I hate everything else about them. Half the time they don’t work to begin with and you end up burning your hand. Then if you spill something on them you have to be careful how you wash them. I used to have a set of four oven mitts. They worked pretty well until one got dirty. I threw it in the wash and washed and dried it without thinking. It came out about three-quarters the size of the others, thus forever ruining it for me because it no longer matched the other three.
Yes, I’m that person.
And have you ever tried to use an oven mitt with a grill? That’s downright dangerous. One decent flare-up and next thing you know your hands are on fire.
So there has to be a decent alternative and I think I have found it, KitchCo Premium Silicone BBQ Gloves.
To start with, they are silicone, not cloth. So you can use them with the barbeque and not worry about catching your hands on fire. Second, they’re silicone, not cloth, so you can actually mix or mold hot things by hand. Have you ever made chocolate candy at Christmas or Rice Krispy Treats and needed to smoosh the Rice Krispies down into the dish to get them flat? Boom. They also work as oven mitts up to 446 degrees, so they work for most general cooking and baking needs. Best of all, when they get dirty, you can just throw them in the top of your dishwasher. No more odd man out oven mitt for me.
