HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) - The Silicone Ovenmitt cost $9.99 and is a "Deal."
I tell you that early so that I can tell you all that I did to give myself a third-degree burn.
A warning....PLEASE DON'T DO THIS AT HOME. I HAVE NO MARKETABLE SKILLS AND THEY PAY ME TO DO THIS DEAL OR DUD TEST THING! DON'T DO THIS AT HOME.
1.)Grabbed a cookie pan while wearing the Silicone Ovenmitt after it had been in the oven for 20 minutes after being preheated to 350. Didn't feel the heat at all. Could make cookies all day.
(Making cookies really wasn't crucial to the filming of this Deal or Dud, but it was, after all, an excuse to make cookies. Chocolate chip and oatmeal raisin are two newsroom favorites.
2.) Held a lighter up to my hand, while wearing the Silicon Ovenmitt for about 45 seconds before I felt the heat.
3.)Put hand in boiling water while wearing the Silicon Ovenmitt. Could feel the heat after a minute or so, but didn't get burned. (Checking workman's comp policy now.)
4.)Put my hand over the blazing orange eye on the stove for several seconds. (Didn't do this long because I really didn't want to push my luck and The Talk was about to come on.
The Silicon Ovenmitt ($9.99) is a Deal.
