Houston, TX, July 28, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- If consumers used silicone oven gloves rather than pot holders and mitts made of cloth, then they'd have a greater chance of preventing cooking fire incidents at home. According to the National Fire Protection Association (http://www.nfpa.org/safety-information/fire-prevention-week/fast-facts-about-fire), two out of 5 home fires start from the kitchen area. Unattended cooking, most especially when combustible materials like oven mitts are left on top of the range and too close to the burner, can cause kitchen fires to break out uncontrollably.
A pair of silicone oven mitt set from Life Quintessentials could be what you have been looking for. The rubbery material protects your hands and arms from sizzling grease and blazing heat from a stove-top range, a hot oven, or an open grill. It also offers protection from scald burn injuries, which the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System as primarily caused by mishandling of microwave ovens.
Unlike pot holders, these oven mitts are made of high-grade silicone, which can resist rising temperatures of up to 482 degrees Fahrenheit or 250 degrees Celsius. The material has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration as safe to use in preparing and cooking food. Because of the ridged pattern on the palms and fingers, the gloves are also useful for opening tightly capped jars or bottles.
Apart from resisting heat and applying friction, the silicone rubber gloves also help in keeping your upper limbs warm whenever you need to place food containers or trays into the freezer. The inner lining that's made of quilted cotton and polyester and the black pure cotton wrist cover feel comfortable as they wrap snugly around your hands and lower arms.
These Life Quintessentials oven mitts are easily washed and dried. Grease and stains don't stay on its surface for long. The mitts can be washed by hand in hot soapy water or using a washing machine. You can hang and air dry them from the attached loops or you may use the dryer and not worry about tearing them apart. They're a sturdy pair of cooking gloves that may be used in indoor areas other than the kitchen as long as they're regularly sanitized and kept in good condition.
