I recently stumbled across these neat little “Mini Mitts” at Sur La Table. They fit perfectly around your fingers and protect you from hot pans and dishes. Even better (and what likely pushed me over the edge)? They also come in a lot of fun colors.

And for the holidays, I’m thinking of grabbing a pair of these snowman or Santa mini mitts. So what if they are only fashionable in the kitchen in December? It’s the joy of the holiday season that matters, right?

Goodbye, traditional oven mitts. For less than $10, these mini mitts definitely fulfill their purpose.
