Here’s an interesting expansion on the cooking mitt idea: water and heat resistance with a non-slip grip. Ulta-Mitt includes these and a few other nice extras for a new and improved oven mitt that looks like it would work well not only at home and at the grill, but even when cooking over a campfire. The added index finger section seems like it would add some dexterity, but why not go all the way and just make this into a glove so that the ultimate in dexterity can be offered? Even so, still some great ideas here, and $14 gets backers a mitt and hot pad with an expected delivery of November 2014.
Cooking can be a great creative outlet, but on those occasions when you get burned, it takes the fun out of it. Cuffitts blends pot holder, oven mitt and hot pad into one. This cooking tool was designed with safety in mind, protecting hands from burns that come from heat, steam, and oil pops whether in the kitchen or standing at the grill. For $10, a backer gets one Cuffitt, which seems a bit pricy given the fact that there are stores that sell pot holders and oven mitts for less. Expected delivery date isn’t noted.
