Here I go again...silicone. My kitchen is starting to look like a silicone store because I just can't get over how nice the products are that are made from this material. Here are two thumb/finger mitts for handling hot pans and a strainer that goes right into the pot where you're cooking veggies or something that you want to strain without pouring everything out into the sink. The silicone really does protect your hands from getting burned. When you are steaming veggies, though, be careful of the hot steam when you remove the lid of the pan. The parts of your hand and arm not in the silicone, could get a steam burn.
I received this product at a discount in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.
