Oven Mitts---Rite Mitts

I can't tell you how many times I have burnt myself on the inside of an oven. Most of the time, it is because I am being careless and not paying attention. Sometimes, though, it is because I don't have a good oven mitt. Growing up I assumed that all oven mitts would do their job and protect my hands from being burnt. I learned quickly though, that all oven mitts are not created equally. Some burnt my hands through the mitts and others just burnt right through the mitt and my hands were safe. I think it is safe to say that everyone has at least one pot holder or oven mitt that has a burnt spot on it!


Rite Mitts, are oven mitts. They are cotton, flame resistant, and heat resistant. Which means they shouldn't come out looking worse for wear after using them. When I opened up the package, I saw just how big these things are. I am not use to using an oven mitt, potholders are usually my first choice and so much easier. Just grab and go. Oven mitts though, have to be put on, but you tend to feel a whole lot safer.


When I first put these on, I again noticed how big these things are. Brand new, they were hard to maneuver. Opening and closing my hands were hard enough, so I wasn't sure how well they work trying to hold hot objects. I wanted to really "break" them in before I tried them out on something hot. I swear every time I went into the kitchen whether I was cooking or not, I was throwing them on trying to get them where they would move correctly.


I did finally get them broken in and used them to take out a cookie sheet. Starting small at first and then working my way up to the heavy stuff. The first use went well, the gloves were still awkward but were getting better. The whole thing went off pretty well. When they were used, I looked them over and they were still pretty clean. I don't usually use white in the kitchen so this was a first for me.


All in all, these are really well made. I don't really care for the white on the outside of the mitts, but the silver on the inside is pretty cool looking. Of course that is the part that keeps you safe as well! I will keep using these. I may even give one to my bestie who is getting married soon. Would be a nice wedding gift and something she is going to need, but won't receive from other guests most likely.
