Anyone who has ever burned a forearm on a hot oven rack will appreciate these rack edge covers.
Made from NOMEX, the same fire-retardant fabric used by firefighters, they are safe for temperatures up to 500°F/260°C.
Measuring 18" × 2 1/2" when open, they snap over the leading edge of an oven rack to insulate you from accidental contact.
There was considerable debate in our new-product committee over whether to leave them installed where they may discolor or get dirty (just as oven mitts do), or to remove them when not baking. There was no debate whatsoever about their utility.
Machine washable (the nickel-plated brass snap fasteners will not rust). Sold in pairs.
