Safety in the kitchen is so important. It’s so tempting to use a kitchen towel to get hot food out of the oven, but have you ever burned yourself doing that? Did the towel ever catch fire? Unfortunately, the towel-as-potholder method is not very safe! Instead, you may want to consider oven mitts such as these. I have been surprised over the years by just how many standard oven mitts have melted, caught fire, or were not heat-resistant enough. Silicone oven mitts, however, seem to be particularly well-suited to the job of holding hot things and I have never had a problem with them. I love using them when I cook because I trust that my hands will not get burned!
