Silicone Oven Mitt
We picked up one of these over the weekend. It's simply elegant and amazing. After putting in a cookie sheet full of olive oil and asparugus - the mitt got coated with oil. Well - BIG DEAL! Unlike a cloth mitt - we simply put this in the sink and washed it off. Awesome!!!
"Appropriately named, the ORKA oven mitt looks like a whale swimming in to pull lobsters from boiling water or lift a basket of French fries from the deep fryer. Made of non-porous, food-grade silicone, the mitt is designed to withstand temperatures up to 500 degrees F without melting, staining, or getting your hands wet. This makes the ORKA ideal for cooking with boiling water or oil or using over grills or open flames. Slip-resistant "teeth" on the mittâ€™s grasping surface provide a sure grip when lifting greasy or wet pots. At 11 inches long, the mitt is long enough to protect the forearm and fit either right or left hands of all sizes. For easy cleaning, the ORKA goes right into the dishwasher with the rest of your pots and pans. This product was the top gadget at the 2002 Excellence in Housewares Awards and has also been featured on Oprah, Good Morning America, and CNN. --Cristina Vaamonde
