How to choose an oven mitten:

  • List down your criteria of using one such as whether you will be frequently using it in the kitchen or an outside grill. 
  • Compare materials with your needs because some are more heat-resistant or waterproof compared to other materials so it needs to be aligned with what you will be using them for. 
  • Make sure that the chosen oven mitt is comfortable and fits with your hands. 

At the end of the day, you should remember that the oven mitt is for yourself or whoever you are planning to give it to. This is to ensure that the chosen oven mitt is suitable for the purpose that it is given. For example, a person might want a long oven mitt if they often find themselves carelessly getting burns on their arms, otherwise, they might not get enough protection.
