We're unwavering devotees of the double-handed oven mitt. Not only does it conveniently hang on your oven door, but it protects both your hands and arms -- whether you're pulling out a crisp-skinned holiday turkey or a sheet of your favorite cookies.
I couldn't live without these. I tend to move quickly in the kitchen, and wearing these when moving things into and out of the oven decreases my chance of getting burned. And I love that I can hang them over the bar of the oven, instead of having to find room in a drawer for a set of bulky mitts!
