Silicone Oven Mitts and Pot Holders

Available in three stylish colors, this set of oven mitts and pot holders is just what all newlyweds need to elevate their kitchen. They were actually inspired by recommendations from 25,000 home cooks, some of which suggested a silicone design. The platinum-grade silicone makes them much more durable and heat-resistant than regular cloth options without sacrificing flexibility and grip. Both items feature magnets hidden inside the fabric so they can easily be hung on the refrigerator, oven, or dishwasher for easy access.
