Put Your Hands in the Oven with a Silicone Oven Shield

Sometimes we come across items that make so much sense that they should really be a part of the original product and not some add-on gadget. Like the Silicone Oven Rack Guard. It’s simply a pair of silicone guards that line the outer edge of your oven racks and allow you to pull the oven racks out with your bare hands. No need for pot holders, oven mitts, or towels, the silicone stays cool up to 450 degrees. They cost so little for a set, so why isn’t this a standard feature on all ovens? It should be.

  1. Oh hey! No need for oven mitts or heat pads, I can pull the rack out and just reach in and grab the food item, cookie sheet, casserole dish or what have you with my bare hands, because I didn’t take two seconds to slip on a mitt…..oh wait. No. Lawsuit watiting to happen…..

  2. Interesting idea, but I wonder how well it actually works. I bake with silicone bakeware frequently and have burned my fingers moving silicone muffin pans several minutes after removing them from the oven. what about when you push the rack back into the oven?

  3. This sounds good until you think about the fact that you still need the oven mitt to take out the hot cookie sheet, pan, etc. so really these should be marketed more towards stoping you from burning yourself when you accidentally brush against the rack when removing your food. That makes more sense.

    1. There are still times when you pull out the oven rack without removing the food. To check stuff, to turn stuff, to baste, stuff, etc. Taking food out of the oven is only one instance. Still a great invention. I’d get use out of it.

  4. My daughter has a neurological disability that affects her coordination, so she is constantly getting burned when she tries to get things out of the oven. If this product keeps her from burning herself, I’d be thrilled!
