Suggested For You


  • Now, if only someone can find me some elbow-length oven mitts. I’m the first to admit that my husband is right about me being a bit of a klutz (even if he does exaggerate a little). But of course, I can’t hide the turkey pan scars halfway between my elbows and my wrists. But hey, at least I’m a pretty good cook :)

  • wow, you did a great job :)
    some really nice mitts here :)
    thanks for th info i was actually looking for some few days ago but couldn’t find any nice ones.

  • i like the silicone oven mitts too – they are great at dealing with heat. they just need to make them actually fit people’s (small) hands and they will be perfect!

  • I am dying. It’s like a light shown down from the sky, I am obsessed with oven mits and just had like, twelve orgasms and opened sixteen new windows to buy them…um, all.

  • I love this! I agree with Jody, I’d love to see more…maybe even rolling pins or flour bins, tool :) Thanks!

  • I do have a question for oven mitt manufacturers: why don’t they make oven mitts to fit women’s hands? Most are so large that I am more likely to get burned from losing my grip than anything else. I notice one person commented that silicon mitts are smaller, any other tips?

  • We do English Language Camps in Eastern Europe. Teachers in each of the four countries where we do the camps will be helping us with translation in the classroom. Our gift to them will be a kitchen angel (made with kitchen towel, wash cloth and oven mitt or hot pad). I am searching for oven mitts and hot pads. Is there any possiblity of our mission organizagtion getting oven mitts or hot pads from you as a donation, reduced rate, or maybe buying overstock at a reduced rate. I am in need of 50 oven mitts or hot pads. Thank you for considering this request. I have been doing Language Camps in Russia since 1996.

  • Ok, so which ones are good for people who have small hands? I have kicked down every door in cyberspace to find the answer to this question and I’m still coming up short. I bought some for kids but they were WAY too little.

  • I am looking for an oven double ended mitten. It is about 3 feet long and has slip in ( hands) pockets at either end.
    Do you have one like this?
