They’re super enticing, see for yourself. I’m breaking a sweat just thinking about the situation - which is either give in and buy something I’m mildly interested in having, or continue ignoring and prove a point to Amazon that shoving something, anything, in my face isn’t enough to make me break.

Back in my hippie college days, I used to run as a medic in various protests. One of the things a lot protestors would wear is the asbestos lined gloves you get for working with hot stuff, or welding gloves.

I'm pretty sure it's something like this:

u/MargotLane · 36 pointsr/AskWomen

Ha!! I have a friend who's the same and it makes shopping for her birthday fun AND easy. Did you know that you need these oven mitts? Because I'm pretty sure you do.


u/barlister · 32 pointsr/Cooking

the best oven mitts these days are silicon

if you get them dirty you can wash the outside off in the sink, you can literally pick up burning coals in a barbecue, they are badass

these are awesome

u/coffeewithmyoxygen · 28 pointsr/curlyhair

Try plopping right side up. Get your towel under your hair along your neck and pull it around towards your forehead and tie it up there. Make sure your curls are inside your towel, but not squished against your head or on top of your head. I was getting really tangled, kinky curls when I plopped. Now I just kind of tie my hair into the towel and let it sit in the towel instead.

Edit: For anybody curious... I use these towels . I fold them in half diagonally so they’re a triangle. It makes it really easy to tie up and adds an extra layer of towel to catch the moisture so your towel doesn’t get suuuuper soaked immediately.

u/Sendbeer · 25 pointsr/castiron

I like the Cloth ones better. They don't heat up nearly as much as the silicon ones when left on the pan, at least on an electric stove.

u/gibsongal · 20 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

Might I suggest an anti-fatigue mat? I used to absolutely hate cooking dinner after I got home from work because my feet would be so tired that standing for another 30 minutes was excruciating. I got an anti-fatigue mat for Christmas (the exact one in the link) and it’s been magical. I can stand and cook for much longer without pain. I could never go back to life without one.

u/corvid_sense_o_humor · 16 pointsr/quilting

Patch together some tea-dyed floursack-towels? That way you get the relic-feeling/looking fabric without the mustiness/fragility of genuine vintage or the roughness of burlap?

I think it's just the Ove' Glove. I wouldn't trust those with liquids.

u/Ltownbanger · 9 pointsr/Canning

Get some flour sack towels. You can line a colander and pour the stock through once and it does a great job of filtering out the insoluble bits.

They are cheap, multipurpose and reusable. I rarely have a need to buy cheesecloth any more.

I use a pair of Ove Gloves. I've never used gloves or mitts before I purchased the Ove Glove, just used a couple dry bar towels. But I've been using the Ove Glove for the same purpose you are using your gloves: moving a hot dutch oven (475 F) in and out of a oven and removing the lid.

Although I have only been using the Ove Glove for a year, I bake almost every weekend, usually bread in a dutch oven. From my personal experience, I can say that the Ove Glove is more than up to the task. No signs of wear yet and protects my hands from the heat well.

One downside is the lack of forearm protection, which can be an issue whenever you are reaching into your oven.

Edit: Adding a link:

u/wunderbier · 6 pointsr/AskCulinary

Agreed! Though I'd say "as good as old", in the case of cast iron.

I don't get it when people say cast iron is too much work. I haven't even used water or salt in a long time. I just wipe it out (after it's cooled a bit) with a linen cloth I launder weekly. Maybe if there's something crusty on the bottom (pretty rare now) I'll use the spatula or a green scrubby to get it off. I coat the surface with a few drops of oil if it's dry looking. Hot handle? Darp darp. I've done gravies and all kinds of pan sauces in it too without problem.

Back when my pan's seasoning was new, I used to have a non-stick skillet in reserve for fried eggs. No more. Eggs from any pan other than my cast iron skillet are flavorless and boring.

Between me and my wife the pan probably gets used daily. Sure, it takes a while to get to this point, but it's worth it. I've heard of people doing tomato sauces in particularly well seasoned cast iron, but I haven't dared yet. One day.

tl;dr, The less I fuss with my cast iron skillet, the better food it makes.

u/Simpsator · 6 pointsr/AskCulinary

The easiest option would be to just get a colored silicone handle cover like these:

u/struggle_cuddle_club · 6 pointsr/baby

Cloth diapers - flour sack towelsfrom amazon as the stuffers - cheap and clean easily. Bamboo liners for the poop. Rubber gloves for swishing it in the toilet for the parts that don't come off with the liners. Lot's of covers that can be used from newborn to 35 lbs. You can use any bum cream if you use the flour sack towels as well FYI because it doesn't ruin them. Also pick up a couple of these laundry bags. Wipes.

Cleaning is easy - "quick wash" with a bit of soap, then a hot long wash for extra soiled diapers.

Baby nest was nice to have but not a necessity. Blankets/towels can help. Also a wrap is nice for the first 6 months but not necessary.

A pump, even hand pump will be handy. Especially in the first few weeks she's regulating her supply.

Zip up sleepers (snaps suck)

Baby Bag (backpack style)

Don't worry about a baby changing table, you can change anywhere. Don't worry about a diaper genie since you're cloth diapering.

Breastfeeding scarf/carseat cover

- snack containers

- Food holder thing(frozen bananas are awesome for teething)

u/DenverBob · 6 pointsr/smoking

I use a thermopop, almost as fast as the thermapen, and under $30.

Also, I couldn't get by without my Grill Armor gloves. I can reach right in to the fire box, move burning logs and chunks of lump charcoal, move hot grates, move hot charcoal pans and water bowls, etc.

I also use a set of grill armor silicone gloves for moving hot food.

  • nonstick pan is nonstickiest on it's first use, and begins to degrade
  • you can scrape your wife's burnt food out pretty easily.
  • they come in a million different configurations to suit your needs.
  • you can use it in a campfire
  • your wife can't scratch your pan
  • you can keep it your whole life, plus your kid's whole life.
  • it's restorable
  • it's cheap
  • it predates all the other popular pan types, and will out-live them
  • you can use thin metal spatulas, without fear of scratching
  • you can get them super hot
  • many folks display their collection, with pride
  • they don't discolor (well, beyond being black)
  • they work well in the oven, lacking stupid plastic handles (though you will likely need a lodge condom).
u/FPFan · 5 pointsr/fountainpens

Lint free cotton dish towels. I don't like the towels that have nap to them, as I like to avoid things that can get hung up in the tines, and nap can get into the breather hole and be caught between the tines.

For a quick and easy, or would work well. When new, wash them once or twice to remove all of the sizing, and then you have a nice, lint free, soft cotton towel use on your pens. These are big, but after a while they will look great with all of the ink colors on them.

u/DownvoteEveryCat · 5 pointsr/bingingwithbabish

Correct. I bought a pair a few weeks ago, they're pretty awesome as long as you don't get them wet.

u/v0rt3xtraz · 4 pointsr/castiron

I sometimes cook my steaks the same way, and also have a glass top. I just let the burner get hot (set to high), and when I take it out of the oven, I gently place it on the hot burner. I use these gloves, and have no issue holding the cast iron long enough to move it

u/BananaNutJob · 4 pointsr/SquaredCircle

Get you a pair of bear hands so you don't burn your bare hands. The amount of puns you get to make when owning these easily pays you back for them, plus they're great oven mitts.

u/Sasselhoff · 3 pointsr/FoodPorn

You need to try a pair of these then. It'll change your mind on fingers on oven "mitts" (yes, I know "mitts" don't have's a catch-all for "things we use to grab hot stuff out of the oven").

u/PhunkeyPharaoh · 3 pointsr/Breadit

This is just a brainstorm of ideas:

-Big nice cast iron Dutch Oven (preferably buy the mitts below with the Dutch oven if he plans to preheat it, just to avoid burns)

-Good oven mitts (Specifically these ones which I have and rate higher than other mitts I've tried)


-Bread Lame (avoid the plastic ones)

-Baking steel/stone (good for both bread and pizza I hear)

-If you get a steel/stone, a nice big pizza peel is an important addition

-Stainless steel Dough scraper

-Glass bowls/rectangular casseroles with lids for bulk fermentation

-Silicone Lids (these ones not the stretch lids) for the bowls he owns. (Excellent addition and saves on plastic wrap)

-A big wooden surface for dough shaping and kneading. (I use this one)

-A nice linen bread couche

-a ceramic cloche (alternative to a dutch oven)

u/kyriya · 3 pointsr/Wishlist

We seriously do not have any more room in our kitchen for any new gadgets or anything. The latest thing I got was a Hamilton grill/griddle as a gift from work for my 10 year anniversary. We had to rearrange everything and find a place for it. My hubby is worse than I am though. If it's a gadget and looks cool, he wants it lol!

I will say this though, two of the greatest things we've ever bought - besides our kitchen knives (which are awesome) are these and this.

u/Syntaximus · 3 pointsr/Cooking

I exploded some Pyrex. Not broke...not shattered....EXPLODED. I accidentally turned on the wrong burner and happened to have it sitting on top. When I realized what I had done I grabbed the thing with my Ove Glove and ran it to the sink. There happened to be a little bit of water where I set it and BOOM. Magma-hot glass shrapnel EVERYWHERE. Took 4 hours to clean up.

It's a miracle I didn't get shrapnel in my face because I could have easily lost my eyesight.

u/AdventureMomming · 3 pointsr/clothdiaps

I'd suggest flour sack towels (Link is to the ones I have from Amazon, but my understanding is that you can get them for about a dollar a piece at Walmart) with covers (I like flip covers but I think the brand is less important).

Flats, like flour sack towels, are multi-purpose, cheap, and super fast to dry. My dryer died on me a few months ago and I realized how much easier the single layer flats were to wash and dry. I agree with the last response that probably 20 or so flats and a few covers would be reasonable, but because they are cheap and multipurpose having 40 of them around wouldn't be the worst thing either!

u/theoldthatisstrong · 3 pointsr/xxfitness

Silicone pan handle cover. Slip it on and never take it off. Never burn hands again.

Yes I think my downstairs neighbors appreciated the difference...

The first night I did it just on a yoga mat and they came up to knock on my door before the warmup was done.

Nights after the padding I did long sufferfest rides and they didn't return.

It wasn't really soft, it was dense thick foam, and the trainer i have is very stable.

Get one of this, you wont regret it. One of the best purchases I've ever done. They're pretty handy if you want to get a pan out quick too.

u/AvramBelinsky · 2 pointsr/Embroidery

I really love embroidering on white flour sack towels like these. As far as transferring patterns, there are lots of options. You can buy iron-on transfer patterns from companies like Sublime Stitching, Stitcher's Revolution, Aunt Martha's, and Dover. There are pens you can buy with disappearing ink or special fabric pencils if you want to draw right on the fabric. You can draw or trace a design on paper and then use transfer paper to transfer the pattern you've drawn to the paper. Some people use non-wrinkle polyester fabric for hand embroidery because it means you don't have to iron it when you're done, but I prefer stitching on cotton. I don't use a hoop though, I use a Q-snap frame which doesn't crease the fabric as much as a traditional hoop does.

u/Grave_Girl · 2 pointsr/clothdiaps

Has anyone used bar mop towels as diapers? I know flour sack towels are a thing, but I have a few Snappi brand diapers that are terrycloth with some sort of center panel inside, and that got me to considering the aforementioned towels. I have a friend who said she used wash rags as diapers when her sons were little, but I'm thinking either her kids were tiny or her washcloths were huge. This is the sort of thing I'm talking about, though I think they're cheaper somewhere like Sam's Club.

Also, does anyone have interest in a Tunisian crochet prefold diaper pattern, or regular crochet contour diaper pattern? I'm asking before I work on writing them. I do not sell my patterns, ever, so this isn't a business thing, and I already have a Tunisian fitted (though it's really more contour) diaper pattern on Ravelry that in my experience works really well, but I'm tossing around the idea of coming up with one based off the Snappi diapers

If you only used it to mark the end of the handle and baked it in the oven after it dried (without food). It should be fine. It will stink at first.

Basic No-Knead Bread

Slightly adapted from Jim Lahey’s My Bread


6 cups bread flour (recommended) or all-purpose flour, plus more for work surface
1/2 t. instant or active-dry yeast
2 1/2 t. salt
2 2/3 c. cool water

  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, yeast, and salt. Add the water and stir until all the ingredients are well incorporated; the dough should be wet and sticky. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap. Let the dough rest 12-18 hours on the counter at room temperature. When surface of the risen dough has darkened slightly, smells yeasty, and is dotted with bubbles, it is ready.
  2. Lightly flour your hands and a work surface. Place dough on work surface and sprinkle with more flour. Fold the dough over on itself once or twice and, using floured fingers, tuck the dough underneath to form a rough ball.
  3. Place a full sheet/large rectangle of parchment paper on a cotton towel and dust it with enough flour, cornmeal, or wheat bran to prevent the dough from sticking to the parchment paper as it rises; place dough seam side down on the parchment paper and dust with more flour, cornmeal, or wheat bran. Pull the corners of parchment paper around the loaf, wrapping it completely. Do the same with the towel. Let rise for about 2 hours, until it has doubled in size.
  4. After about 1 1/2 hours, preheat oven to 425 degrees. Place a 6-8 quart heavy covered pot, such as a cast-iron Dutch oven, in the oven as it heats. When the dough has fully risen, carefully remove pot from oven. Unwrap the towel and parchment paper from around the dough and slide your hand under the bottom of the dough ball; flip the dough over into pot, seam side up. Pull the parchment paper off, scraping any stuck dough into the pan. Shake pan once or twice if dough looks unevenly distributed; it will straighten out as it bakes.
  5. Cover and bake for 40 minutes. Uncover and continue baking for 10-15 more minutes, until the crust is a deep chestnut brown. The internal temperature of the bread should be around 200 degrees. You can check this with a meat thermometer, if desired.
  6. Remove the bread from the pot and let it cool completely on a wire rack before slicing.
u/thatothersheepgirl · 2 pointsr/clothdiaps

These were the flour sack towels I bought and still use. I could honestly get by with just these still. They're my main diaper during the day still. And at just over a dollar a towel, the price can't be beat. I'm with your husband, I LOVE learning new diaper folds!

Lodge Striped Hot Handle Holders/Mitts, Set of 2

u/elizzybeth · 2 pointsr/castiron

500F is just about right.

I have the same red Lodge silicon handle for my skillet—and I have forgotten to take it off the handle a couple times. Most of the time, it's been no big deal; I've used a hot pad to take the pan out.

But once, I had the broiler on (making broiled chicken with peppers, if I remember correctly). I opened the oven door a couple minutes later to discover that the handle had bubbled, cracked, and turned an ugly shade of mottled brown.

The good news is that you can buy a new handle for $4.

Of course it depends on what setting your hotplate is on, but if it's hot enough to cook, then yes, the handle will get very hot. I use hot pads, or silicone or leather handle covers all the time. There are a couple new skillet makers like Stargazer that make handles designed to dissipate heat, so that might be worth looking into.

I recently got a 2 pack of the Ove Glove and I've really been enjoying them over the standard oven mitt! I like being able to keep some dexterity. I've had pots or pans in the past hit my underarm, but the gloves give me a lot more control over the hot things I'm working with. Also nice if you need to brace your cast iron pans, or move them around a bit while heated. I've been buying a lot of new stuff lately, but I was probably the most surprised by these guys!

u/ElizabethLTCD · 2 pointsr/clothdiaps

It sounds like it was more of a compression leak than anything. A compression leak is basically when the baby pees and then lays on it/squeezes the wet diaper for so long that the pee just leaks out of that absorbent layer. I'd add a layer or two, but specifically fold or layer it in a way that there's extra absorbency around the sides of the diaper. You'll probably have to experiment with it a few times to get something that works well. You could try using OsoCozy flats or even some flour sack towels because they're large and you'd be able to fold them in a way to add absorbency to the sides without them sliding around.

Yeah, I only put my wool in the dryer on air dry because it was winter and I couldn't hang dry it. :) Then I figured out that it seemed to affect the waterproofing so I ended up just hang drying it by the fireplace, lol! At least it smelled good after that!

I got a Stargazer for my birthday. AMA.

I received a Stargazer for my birthday in October this year. I've used it nearly every day since. I have 7 lodges that I use extremely less frequently now. Here's what I know:

  • It's polished at the factory and doesn't have the rough grainy feel of nearly every other new, modern pan. They still cast it, but it goes through another step.
  • It has a bronze color. I don't know if it's expected to turn black. Their website pics imply that it won't.
  • I made two pizzas, one in the stargazer and one in the lodge. The stargazer produced a crispier crust, which I attribute to a slightly thinner material, and therefore less "heat up" time. Maybe it got hotter quicker, and therefore, longer
  • During French Toast days, the handle of the lodge requires a lodge condom, and the Stargazer did not. It has a funny forked handle, which likely conducts less heat.
  • It did not pass the egg test out of the box but outperformed my well-used main lodge. I cooked two eggs at the same time, with the same amount of oil. (the lodge may not have been properly cleaned from the night before, at the time, so your mileage may vary)
  • It's very pretty.

    Should you (or Santa) spend $80 on one? Yes, if you're into Cast Iron, and I know all you suckers are, this might be your prized pan. And like any iron, it's generational. Maybe your great grandkids will be using your pan on Mars.

I believe you mean the 'Ove' Glove which is good, briefly, for a few hundred degrees, but it's basically just an oven mitt. I wouldn't expect it to handle ash & cinders.

On that note, this little guy is wonderful.

u/oh_msh · 1 pointr/trees

Hm. Bet sugru or some other silicone sleeving would help with the heat, but it would ruin the nice lines of it's design.

In fact, this would almost be perfect [no affiliation], as it claims it's 2" wide at the opening. If I come across heat probz it'll probs be worth the $6 to find out.

Hi, I'm also a beginner who's still pretty nervous around hot surfaces and heat, so I'll give you some tips especially for that.

I have a pair of Ove Gloves that I like because I can stick my hand in the oven without worry, but also because I can grip hot trays better and am less worried about dropping things. Just make sure you take care of them because food sticks to the material a lot, and if they get holey then that's bad.

Use a lot of aluminum foil - it doesn't get hot as easily if you put it in an oven. Better yet, if you're baking/roasting something, you can get this to put (aluminum side down) over baking pans so you don't get food on them and they are easier to clean.

When I first started cooking, I had no idea what things needed high heat or low heat on a stove or oven, and totally messed that up a few times, because people think these things are obvious. I'll just give you a few:

  • Grilled cheese should be cooked on a medium to medium-low heat for a fairly long time so the cheese melts and the bread doesn't burn. Try to flip only once.

  • Eggs should be cooked on medium or medium-high heat (probably medium but I like my eggs overcooked), but the pan should already be hot so that you can feel it if you put your hand over it.

  • As per the package directions, cook pasta in boiling water. Start with rice that gives you instructions on how to cook it.

  • If you want to cook vegetables, try slicing and roasting them in the oven in a baking tray on high heat (around 400 degrees F) instead of boiling or steaming them. Some good ones are carrots, potatoes and other root vegetables, and Brussels sprouts.

  • Potatoes can be cooked in the microwave for 4-6 minutes, in boiling water for 20 minutes, or in the oven at around 425 F for an hour, depending on what you want to do with them.

  • Pancakes should be cooked on a medium flame and flipped very carefully. Try making smaller pancakes to start with, they're easier to flip. And the first pancake is nearly always a dud.

  • If you want to cook meats, I'd recommend starting with ground beef or turkey and sautéing it in a pan until it goes from pale pink to brown. Then you can move onto thinly-sliced beef (steak sandwiches), and flattened pieces of chicken (chicken piccata) or pork (schnitzel). That way you get a feel for how long they take to cook before you accidentally undercook a bigger piece of meat.

    Slow cookers are good to buy if you want to cook things without worrying about open flames or setting your house on fire. You can leave it on all day when you're not in the home and it'll work fine, most surfaces are cool to the touch, and it's good for beginners because if you're a half hour over or under it'll still work.

    Make sure your stove has a vent or a range hood over it or built into the stove. If not, you're going to have to open the windows a lot more to prevent setting off the fire alarm - which you should absolutely have at least one of if your apartment isn't already installed with one.

    Does your new place have gas or electric stoves? If it has gas, that's cool, because you can see the flame and you're able to see exactly how hot something is. If not, you may need more adjusting.

According to Amazon, I bought the ones /u/Sendbeer linked here:

u/golfzerodelta · 1 pointr/castiron

They are most likely the Lodge branded ones (don’t own these but just guessing because these are pretty popular from what I can tell)

u/mrmoustafa · 1 pointr/Cooking

That's one gimmick I can never get behind. When you have solid kitchen towels, oven mitts just take up precious space

Edit: here's a link to the kind I'm referring to!

u/othersideofthestreet · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

You need new oven mitts! Mine are all old at least lol. Extra Long Professional Silicone Oven Mitt - 1 Pair - Oven Mitts with Quilted Liner - Red - Homwe

u/Wishful-Thought · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Lightsaber Lamp or chopsticks are pretty cool. This apron, this thermos, these playing cards, this bottle opener, and this ice cube tray are also pretty sweet!

There's a variety of cat tote bags but I personally love this one or this one. I also love these coasters, this plush, this game, this cup, and these magnets.

This camping first aid kit looks super useful, as does this multitool, and you can never have too many torches. An inflatable pillow, or a funky backpack cover might be cool too.

I'm not great at looking for stuff for kids yet, so I can't really cover that aspect, but I hope you like some of these suggestions!

I bought some grill armor gloves from Amazon. Fantastic heat resistance and great friction coefficient, so you don't slip when grabbing things. I use them ALL THE TIMES.

I think the best gift I've received on here were my Bear Oven Mitts. I use them every day, and I get to make the obvious dad joke, "I made this with my...bear...hands..."

As far as the best gifts gifted, there are a lot out there. People here really are awesome. I love seeing the bomb giveaways, and when someone helps out others in need, or just because. Some people are all, "'s Tuesday...let's give someone a fuckin computer." Wish I had money to be that generous.

Can you let me know the next time you are going out to hunt wabbits and dead pwesidents?

u/EgoFlyer · 1 pointr/minimalism

Jumping in to recommend flour sack towels for your kitchen cloths. They are great.

u/SheeBang_UniCron · 1 pointr/Gunpla

I beg to differ..I think this is the closest you can get to "Going Big" while still being able to display it in your house - RX-78-2

A funny batman or any other superhero apron may be ?

u/tuftedtarsier89 · 1 pointr/castiron

I have that exact one. They’re $5 on amazon and they hold up very well. Buy one here

I got this as a housewarming gift: BigMouth Inc The Grill Sergeant BBQ Apron, Cotton Camouflage Gag Gift for Cookouts, Adjustable Strap, Pockets and Bottle Opener Included

u/ChefM53 · 1 pointr/Cooking

I really like the Ove gloves my sister got me. I don't use anything else now. they have silicone strips on them so they are not only heat resistant but also gripe!


u/mothman607 · 1 pointr/castiron

I used those for a bit, except I ended up burning the crap out of them. I recently upgraded to the silicone Lodge holder

u/freedoomed · 1 pointr/NFA
u/holycrapple · 1 pointr/ContagiousLaughter

Buy these. I've had mine for years and no sign of them wearing down. I use them handling EXTREMELY hot things on my grill (charcoal chimney) and everything in my kitchen as well as pulling things off my smoker. They're phenomenal. $5 per glove and they cover half-way up my forearm and I'm a tall dude.

Leather Cast Iron Skillet Pan Handle Cover - Made In USA

for anyone that likes the brown one...good deal imo. the white one i bought with my field skillet on their website. the brown one fits my lodge pretty snug. the cover is about 4 and 5/8 of an inch. its made of nice leather and made in the usa. the white one fits the field perfectly as its tailor made for it.

u/glanmiregirl · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

You need this so you don't burn your hands when cooking. I need it so that I can pretend to be Dr Zoidberg.

u/ItsACharlieDay · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon
u/99Sienna · 1 pointr/vandwellers

This looks really useful, thank you.

Have you considered one of those little things that slides over the handle (after done heating)? I've seen them in leather and silicone. Like this:

u/sifRAWR · 1 pointr/askTO

Look for silicone oven mits, they look similar to this:

I've seen them sold at Home-Outfitters (In yorkdale mall was where I saw them)

u/201dberg · 1 pointr/castiron

Something very similar to these.

u/KillAllTheThings · 1 pointr/Cooking

Not OP, but the people who make new cast iron skillets in the USA also make accessories.

u/FactOfMatter · 1 pointr/funny

I have oven mitts that are silicone, like these:

If you made an entire mailbox out of that, I'm pretty sure hitting it with a bat wouldn't do anything. Also, flamethrower proof and won't go through windshield if struck by car.

u/fated_ink · 1 pointr/Old_Recipes

Not sure where you live but Target has them in the US or you can get them really cheap on Amazon (

u/laughingrrrl · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Don't burn yourself! Hot handle covers, essential for cast iron cooks.

u/ThrowinStacks · 1 pointr/AdviceAnimals
u/heyheythrowitaway · 1 pointr/castiron

Yep! You can get silicone covers for them!

u/Retmas · 1 pointr/Cooking

silicon handle covers, people. \o/

(i know, i know, "details")

u/Blazemonkey · 1 pointr/Cooking

Don't feel bad, I've done it twice last month.. Looks like you might need something like this.

u/bunnylebowski1 · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon










Thanks for the contest!

u/anthonyspc · 1 pointr/3Dprinting

They are silicon oven mitts. Last year I purchased a toaster oven to melt down our scrap PLA but forgot to order something to remove the trays with - we now have these really cool mitts...

Goal is to reuse the scrap instead of throwing it out. I also fixed a trashed paper shredder to quickly chop up rafts, failed prints, etc.

Here is a link to the gloves:

u/MoonbeamThunderbutt · 1 pointr/castiron

This is the kind I have. Multiple layers of thick leather means you don't even feel heat through it unless you literally just took it out of a 500 degree oven. I also like how eventually the leather molds to the handle making it snug as a glove.

u/IonaLee · 1 pointr/AskCulinary

The only time you really need to worry about cross contamination is if your towels are coming into contact with raw meat. If you're using proper soap and water or a light bleach solution to clean up, then there is no danger of cross-contamination from towels.

I use these sponges to wash dishes/knives/cutting boards/tools - they last forever and when one does get worn and ratty, it gets demoted to outside/grill related jobs and a new one gets opened for sink and counters:

I use these towels to dry things and for general wiping and cleanup - they can be bleached if they get dirty or are happen to get used to wipe up chicken juice. As with the sponges, when they start to get ratty and stained, they're demoted to outside/grill use and I get new ones for kitchen use:

I have a handful of these that I got at a WS outlet store that are "for pretty" and hang on the oven rail. They're used almost exclusively for drying hands after washing them:

Outside of that, I use paper towels for just general daily use. I'm fond of the "select-a-size" types so I can tear of a smaller piece for just what I need or to use as a napkin (yeah, we're classy like that around here!). I do use paper towels also for the final clean of the counter each night - I spray the counters down with a cleaner (usually it's diluted Lysol cleaner, sometimes it's diluted Mr Clean - whatever happens to be on sale) and wipe them off with paper towels.

u/kosmic777 · 1 pointr/EchoArena

I ordered this:

It's pricey, yes, but in addition to keeping one centered, it should also be pretty comfortable on the feet.

UPDATE: Love this mat! Not only does it always let you know where your "home" position is, but it's super comfortable as well. No more sore feet! It also doesn't move around very much on carpet... so no need for two-sided tape.

u/scottbrio · 1 pointr/AdviceAnimals

Better yet use the Ove'Glove!

u/liberpubdent · 1 pointr/funny

A flour sack towel would be best. Nothing but the booze would make it through.

I just bought these and they work great. Way cheaper than any other covers I own.

We use these as inserts and they work great. I don’t even shove them in the pocket. I just fold them up and lay them inside the cover and snap them on.

u/6thGenTexan · -2 pointsr/AirBnB

Fuck using paper towels. It's stupidly expensive, not to mention the fact that they are bad for the environment. Just buy cotton "flour sack" towels and wash/reuse them. They will last years. They are more lint free than paper towels anyway.

Also, the entire unit doesn't need to be mopped? That's fucking disgusting. The entire unit needs to be mopped, every single time.

If you don't have trash cans in the bedroom, next to the bed, they are going to throw used condoms on your floor, I guarantee it.
