Eating is life. Cooking, for most, is a prerequisite of eating. So my assumption is you already have a kitchen and you want to have all the necessary safety equipment for your peace of mind.
Most of the time, people improvise because they don’t have the best oven mitts in their kitchen. I know you are guilty, sometime in your life, of using some thick cardboards to get stuff out of the oven! Along the way, I know you have hurt yourself! Now, you are looking for a way to avoid that! Right?
1. Comfort Ability
This is the ability to fit well into your arms and make it feel like a normal routine. This will help you not to have stress on your wrist. You will not experience any fatigue on the wrist, and you will be able to stay longer in the kitchen to make all your delicious meals.
A mitt that has this quality will not give you the worry of having bruises on the wrist and discomfort on your fingers. A hard Mitt will cause bruises to the wrist and may lead to deformation of your fingers. You should wear the mitt before purchasing it and confirm these qualities.
The materials that have been used to make the mitt will matter a lot when it concerns your health and general safety. The material you it is made of should be able withstand high temperatures while you are baking vegan cakes.
The material making the Mitt should not have any health hazard to your skin. You will need to protect yourself from carcinogenic materials or materials that could produce radiation once exposed to heat. This will give you an assurance of waking up every day and make your favorite meal as you wish.
3. Good Grip
The oven mitt should give you the ability to grip anything in the kitchen safely to avoid dropping hot materials on your body. It is a fact that when you are in the kitchen cooking 60% of the materials, you will be handling are hot, and you want to protect yourself from them.
To do this, you will need an oven mitt that can let you hold even the least items in the kitchen with ease. You will need to have a better grip of large items with a fool in them and be able to handle them safely. If you can dispense a cookie from a cookie press while wearing it, it’s an indication it has a good grip!
The oven mitt should be most flexible when handling items in the kitchen, otherwise you might end up dropping some items on your body like knives which may injure you in the kitchen.
The Mitt should be able to let your hand rotate freely to maneuver most of the kitchen activities with ease so you won’t drop those cookies you are baking. You will not want not to be able to make some critical angulations in the kitchen since if you can’t, it might be a safety risk and you end up getting a burn.
5. Easy To Clean
The materials making the Mitt should give the user an easy time to clean it. It should be able to clean with ease even when having oily stains which can cause fire incidences if not well removed from the mitt. This cause a fire hazard to the user and the house. Choose a mitt that will let you clean it well with ease and faster to save you time.
