Don't Get Burned

When I worked in a professional bakery, my arms were striped with burn marks from brushing against hot oven racks as I retrieved cookie sheets. So I was jazzed to see this Cool Touch oven rack guard from JAZ Innovations. Made of the same heat- and flame-resistant fiber used in the protective clothing for firefighters, the padded fabric strips are 18 inches long and wrap around the front of the oven rack, snapping into place. They resist heat up to 500ºF (you need to remove them when you run the broiler), and yes, they do work. I intentionally touched them during testing, and while they got warm, they weren’t nearly hot enough to burn my arm. They’re $20 for two, and you can buy them at JazInnovations.com.
