Cooking mitts...

As we speak, I am washing my cooking mitts, hopefully for the last time. How are the silicone (or other) mitts? Are they flexible enough?

It's just my opinion, for what it's worth, Otter, but I don't like the silicone mitts at all. While they're incredibly heat resistent, they're not easy to manuver. That may be in part because I have pretty small hands, so I usually feel like I'm swimming in them. Other than picking up baked potatoes or hot grill racks, they just don't do it for me. I decided to stick to my good old fashioned fabric hot pads and oven mitts!

I tried on a pair, and they just didn't seem flexible enough to me. However, I'm tired of spraying my mitts with Shout and running them trough three wash cycles to get them looking presentable. Acutally, thinking about it, I would probably be better off just buying a new pair.

Thanks for saving me the expense of finding this out on my own, guys. I've been tempted to buy a pair, but worried about whether I'd like them or not. I'll just stick to my fabric ones.... Otter, I just saw some snappy ones at Tar-Jay today...!!! Even if you had to buy a new pair each year...well...
