Get some of these pretty heat resistant gloves from AYL to wear while baking and grilling.
Then you won’t have to worry about burned hands.
These gloves are insulated and waterproof, and since they are gloves you can grip better with them than with mittens.
I used them right after they came in, and they are really nice.
They do insulate pretty good. The instructions say they are good for temperatures up to 425 degrees.
My oven was set on 450 degrees that time, and they still worked, but I did start feeling the heat a bit by the time I got the dish to the stove (I was using a toaster oven on the other side of the room).
These gloves also have that no slip design to help you keep a grip on whatever it is you are cooking. I really liked that because I have a tendency to drop things (and knock them off the counters too – these gloves don’t help with that :p)
My mom saw these the next day and wanted them. They match the red accents in her kitchen, and she thought they would look a lot better in her kitchen.
She likes them too, and they do look good in her kitchen.
We haven’t used them for grilling (yet), because it is too cold here right now, but summer will be here before long, and they WILL get used.
I received a free product to review.
My mother-in-law is getting ready for spring. One of the things she has done is get a new BBQ Grill.
Her old grill was on her back porch. It has gotten quite a bit of use. It doesn’t look like anyone cleaned it after using it either.
In order to make room for the new one she gave us the old one.
It needs to be cleaned before we do anything with it. My hubby sprayed it with all purpose cleaner but that is all so far.
I think we will have to use oven cleaner on the inside bits. I haven’t ever had to clean a bbq that had cooked on food on it before.
The old charcoal one we had only the one grill area to be cleaned and that got cleaned every time it was used. It doesn’t look like ANY part of this one has been cleaned since it was bought.
I’m thinking an hour or two with oven cleaner and then wipe it off good…and maybe paint the front of it.
What do you think?

I recieved a set of Grill Charms to review. I would have really liked to actually use them on the grill.
Since we haven’t managed to use the grill so far this year…that didn’t work out.
That’s ok though. They do work just as well in the oven. You may not need them as much for that normally…unless you live with someone who has allergies. Or a really finicky eater.
But they are useful if you need to fix one serving without all the ingredients that the others have. Or if you are putting different spices on.
My stepduaghter is allergic to onion…so I had to fix one baked chicken breast with no onion. The grill charms stuck in the chicken breast marked it so I would know which one it was.
Some of the company also liked more spicey food than others. Since I cannot handle heavy spices myself it is nice to be able to mark which itens don’t have lots of spices.
These grill charms have serrated edges so you can stick them into the meat…and each one has a little picture on it…so you just have to know which charm you used. The charms with flames on them are for hot items…and ones with peppers are for…spicey items. Then you have ones with pepper and flames…hot and spicey!
I like these things. They are cute and useful too. You can buy Grill Charms for $19.95 and if you use the coupon code “twitter” you can get 10% off!
