When to Use Pot Holders vs. Oven Mitts

Both oven mitts and pot holders have a place in every kitchen. But it’s important to be sure you’re using the right tool for the job. If you’re reaching into the oven, it’s always smart to wear oven mitts. Because they cover the hands, wrists and even the forearm, they offer better protection. Pot holders, on the other hand, are great for grabbing a hot handle of a pan or lid on the stovetop. In addition, their flat shape allows them to double as a protective layer when setting hot dishes down on your countertops or tables.

Heat-Resistant Kitchen Accessories

As a home chef, you may want some additional tools to help you handle the heat in the kitchen. Besides pot holders and oven mitts, consider getting a pair of grill gloves you can wear when barbecuing. Handle holders, like those pan specifically for pot lids or cast iron skillets handles, can also be a handy accessory. Browse this collection to find options that work for your culinary adventures.
