They're the best option for me. As trouble-free and simple to clean as can be. It took a little practice to get over the difference in flexibility but that's not an issue anymore.

I keep some cloth pot holders on hand for SO. She hasn't gotten used to the silicone ones.

I love oven mitts. Whenever I try to go with something fancier (towel, etc.) I end up messing things up!

What is your purpose? What is your passion? What is your pursuit?

I prefer to use my pair of oven mitts all the times that I use my oven.

Most oven mitts are too small for me. I prefer to use pot holders. Much more convinient anyways.

The pot holders are a fantastic idea, but I would be afraid of slipping! How do you prevent the slips with potholders? Especially because they are so small and don't have any grips?

Currently, I use "Ov-Gloves", special oven mitts with heat resistant non-slip areas on the fingertips and palm. But yes, sometimes they are definitely prone to burns :[

You guys really are set in your ways. I use whatever I grab first...the important thing is to get that good food out of the oven and on to the table!
No matter where I serve my guests, it seems they like my kitchen best!

As you get older you tend to start minding if you get burned. You get set in your ways as you age and find things that work better.

If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side.
