Don’t Get Burnt! Shelf Guards & Silicone Gloves Suppliers

It’s easy to get burns when cooking, however careful you are it’s happened to all of us. Only the other day I reached into a hot oven (talking to a friend and not paying enough attention if truth be told), my punishment was extremely painful as the underside of my arm touched the edge of the oven shelf. Ouch! Naturally I went straight to the sink and ran my burn under the cold tap for about 10 minutes… apparently doing this not only cools off the burn but stop the burn process and so reducing inflammation. Then I applied a thin layer of aloe vera gel which I know from previous experiences is just about the best remedy you can use on burnt skin – better still that it is natural. Despite all this not enough time has passed and I write this review still with a tell-tale scar and wishing I had purchased the ShelfGuard Strips earlier!shelf guard hand protector

Needless to say they would have protected my hands & arms from burning when reaching into the hot oven! These easy to fit – simply slip the Ptrotecta on to the front of your oven shelf. Importantly, they’re also quick & easy to remove for cleaning, just by washing in warm soapy water. They can withstand temperatures up to 260°C and each strip 36cm long. They come in packs of 2.

Now one other item everybody knows about using in the kitchen are Oven Gloves. Unfortunately in this instance mine weren’t that great, but some that are miles above the usual quality of Oven Glove are those made from Silicone, such as the: Deluxe Orka Plus Silicone Mitt with Cotton Lining. Available in blue and pink they really are top of the range and can withstand temperatures up to 250 C ( 480 F ) which is three times more than the original Orka Oven Mitt. With a removable thick Cotton Lining (which by the way is machine washable), they are super strong, yet more flexible for ease of use. With safety in mind they have a non-slip grip, are waterproof and very cleverly they will fit the right or left hand – so any lefties out there don’t need to feel left out!! But what I really love about them is that they are non–staining and don’t blacken. You may be asking yourself how you would clean a silicone oven glove, well they really are easy to clean because they are dishwasher safe. See the below movie to see them for yourself!
