Best Oven Mitt
Oven mitts protect the hands when removing hot items from the oven or stove top. The problem with old school hand mitts is that when they get wet, they are essentially useless. Yes, I remember the steam burn from a wet hand mitt. However, hand mitts have come a long way. In order for these five picks to really be worthy of this list, I wanted them to be one size fits all, able to withstand high heat and made with different materials. Take a look at these picks and throw out your old mitts.

What makes this stand apart from the classic is the Flameguard retardant material. It is able to withstand temperatures up to 425 degrees F. unlike the other picks, it will not protect against heat if it gets wet. It does however still provide great protection and is easy to clean by wiping with a damp cloth.
