Cool Fingers Protect Your Digits When You’re Too Lazy to Use Oven Mitts

 |  |  |  |

After a long day at the office, I just want to switch on the television and watch away while I have my dinner. Sometimes, I get home to cold food and I could not be more grateful for whoever invented the microwave.

However, given my lazy disposition, I sometimes forego using an oven mitt while fishing my hot bowl or plate out of the oven because first, the mitts weren’t hanging by their hook on the cupboard, and second, I’m just too lazy to go looking for them. This careless behavior has resulted in the occasional burnt finger (but fortunately, no uncontrolled releases of the plate or bowl as of yet!)

However, with Cool Fingers, I won’t have to worry or ever have to go through either again. It gives you exactly what its name says: cool fingers. Just slip your thumb in one of the little sleeves and another finger in the other and take your hot plates out of the microwave.

These Smurf-colored microwave grips are made of silicone and, as the retailer’s site says, it can stand the heat when you can’t. I’m certainly going to get some to hang near my microwave oven. They’re available from Perpetual Kid for $9.99 (USD) each.
