If you are a fan of funky kitchen accessories that are also practical then look no further than the fantastic range of oven gloves on offer from Red Candy.
This functional single mitt oven glove is made from 100% cotton with a thick, insulated quilting that will protect your hand from the high temperatures of the oven (far better than a tea towel – which I admit was my alternative before!) when removing baking or cooking out of a hot oven..
As well as having a funny slogan – Dear Wine, Yes (giving you permission for that school night tipple!) I love the bright pink and red pattern which is very cheery and brightens up the kitchen. The blue and white flowers cannot fail to put a smile on your face when doing the chores or cooking the dinner. There is also a handy hanging hook so you can hang the glove up where it is easily accessible for the oven.
It is also very straightforward to look after these products, which can be machine washed cold with similar colours, No bleach. They can be tumble dried on low or dried on the line. It is important that your oven glove is dry when used or it can lead to burns or scalds.
This cool oven glove is produced by BlueQ.com, who describe themselves as proud designers and manufacturers of life-improving, joy-bringing products since 1988. Originally based in Boston, the Nash brothers, Seth and Mitch, moved their operation to their hometown of Pittsfield, Massachusetts after just six years.
The products are fantastic quality with dimensions 32cm x 16cm x 2.5cm – just the perfect size to fit on your hand before removing that baking tray or tin,
