Sweet, silicone oven mitts work extremely well up to 500­°C even though some say only 450. Price is solid to, I spent $20 on my set at Craft and Barrel. Oh and anyone out there who don't know silicone is inert so it can't hurt you (unless they are in pouches that are placed inside your skin that then errupt and cause scar tissue that is) .

@rafebomb 500C? That's 932 F? Only review these have said the silicon is thin and they returned them, as they got burnt. The description says they only withstand up to 446F. My kids eat fish sticks cooked at 450F. I prefer to keep the skin on my fingers... I'll pass.

The problem with silcone oven mitts is that silicone is not a good heat insulator. The silicone itself may withstand up to 450F without melting or burning, but the heat from the hot pan goes through the silicone to your hand. I've burned myself taking hot casseroles out of the oven using silicone oven mitts.

Yeah, I've never been burned through my silicone mitts, I found they worked a helluva lot better than the stuff my roommates have (albeit, it's mostly thrift store oven mitts, their effectiveness is dubious at best), maybe the issue is that these are only half mitts instead of covering the whole hand?

My fingers get sweaty in silicone mitts and they are hard to slip on and off. I would imagine that is why these are mini mitts.

I have these. Like others have said, they are adorable but not for high heat. Best use is for things like cookie sheets below 400°F, i.e., things that you're just going to slide out of the oven quickly. They wedge nicely into the handle of my oven door so that they can be accessed quickly for that kind of use. Not good for super-hot things, things you're going to be holding for a long time, etc.
