Silicone Oven Mitts

I’m starting with this baby first because it is my new favourite kitchen tool: the silicone oven mitt. My daughter grabbed one of these at the craft store and asked, “Mum, what’s this?” We brought it home and the rest is history.

Silicone oven mitts are amazing. They make hot pots and pans easy to grab and absolutely no heat transfers through.

Citrus Sprayer

A kitchen tool beyond cool, the citrus sprayer is a smart idea...if it actually works. Basically, you twist the stem of this tool into any citrus fruit---oranges, lemons, limes---and the cork seals the fruit, enabling you to spray the juice and then put the fruit back in the fridge to be used again.

Have any of you actually used this? I’m dying to know if it really works
