Although I like cooking and baking I very rarely do much these days, and it’s not because I am lazy. The reason I don’t is every time I come to use the oven I burn myself. I use oven gloves and have tea towels but the hot surface always finds a part of skin not protected. My skin may only come into contact with a hot tray for a fraction of a second but it hurts like hell. For this reason I’m writing about a cute but handy gadget I spotted today called the Pac-Man HotHead Oven Mitts.
Pac-Man is a legendary game made by Namco that these Pac-Man Hothead Oven Mitts are based on. You can use this clever kitchen gadget when you bake to remind yourself of your youth and all those Pac-Man dots that you munched whilst being chased by the four enemies. Remember those little Pac-Man critters named Blinky, Pinky, Inky and Clyde?
The retro-gaming Pac-Man Hothead Oven Mitts are made out of silicone rubber unlike other over gloves that are made out of fibrous material. The reason for this is that the silicone provides excellent heat protection to your hands (up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit) whilst being relatively easy to clean. So why not protect your hands and look cool at the same time, surely an ultimate kitchen accessory for all the Pac-Man loving folks out there.
