Busy kitchens mean busy ovens. But in order to provide delicious food for guests and residents to feast over, it makes sense to always take extra-special care with hot plates and dishes.
That’s where the reliable kitchen essential the oven glove comes in. This extra ‘handy’ piece of culinary equipment is the go-to when something needs to taken out of the oven quickly and safely. Certainly here at Dotmaison we find it to be an item always in regular use.
As with anything that’s a favourite in the home, it’s often more satisfying to use a product that manages to combine reassuring production values alongside a pleasing design. Bright and colourful prints and patterns on the oven gloves can make an attractive addition to the one of the home’s most active of rooms.
The above Scribble Square Flower Oven Glove, Yellow by Orla Kiely uses the company’s famous scribble pattern to bring a cheerful abstract to the culinary assistant.
Offering a retro-look slice of pop-art expressionism to the kitchen, the fashionable double-ended oven glove will completely protect right and left hands from oven hot pots and pans. The artistic cool of the gloves also look fantastic when not in use and positioned nearby. Made from fine quality cotton and detailed with the eye-catching design, the glove is certainly a welcome companion to hard work in the kitchen.
If you find yourself without the reliability and security of having an oven glove close to hand, there’s quite a few options available. A lovely avian design is part of the appeal of the Double Oven Gloves, Toucan from Sara Miller.
Offered as part of the designer’s collection taking inspiration from the animal world, the design is also available on a tea towel and apron. The gloves are made from a heavy-weight heat-resistant 250gsm. Superbly comfortable to wear and use, they can make cooking fun and safe.
The Denim Oven Mitt, Blue from Ferm Living is another striking example of a combination of style and reliability. Created in durable denim with a recycled polyester padding, the two tone blue is a great looking way to keep hands protected while cooking and serving up.
It’s easy to hang the glove up when not in use with the included loop. Produced with high-quality fabrics and an excellent sense of the importance of the job at hand, the mitt will be a kitchen stand-by for a long time to come.
