Oven Mitts & Pot Holders
Don’t forget to protect your hands from burns and splatters when you’re cooking with oven mitts and pot holders from Belk. While you may be more accustomed to seeing oven mitts in traditional cotton, we’re moving more and more toward silicone. Silicone pot holders and oven mitts have a number of benefits over the more familiar cotton. Silicone will protect your hands from temperatures up to 500 degrees, where cotton leaves off at 200. Bacteria won’t breed on wet silicone oven mitts as they do with cotton. Silicone pot holders are waterproof and clean up in a snap with just soap and water. And you have superior grip with silicone, so you don’t risk spilling hot food fresh from the oven.
Your oven mitts and pot holders add color and personality to your kitchen. When choosing, be sure to consider the heat protection they provide. How well you can maneuver heavy baking dishes straight from your oven with them are also important. You’ll notice that we feature long oven mitts that protect your forearm and well as your hand.
Of course you can use silicone pot holders or oven mitts to protect your table top and counters from hot bakeware, but why not use a proper trivet, instead? For oven mitts, silicone pot holders and all your kitchen needs, shop Belk.
