I bought one of these mitts for myself. I knew it was cute to look at, but I wasn't sure it would be very functional.

I was right.

The mitt itself is pretty small (think sock puppet). But more importantly, the mitt is really thin. So it doesn't do a very good job insulating your hand. I certainly wouldn't use it to hold only cast-iron skillets while cooking, and even removing cookie sheets from the oven was nearly painful.

If I had to lift a heavy casserole dish out of the oven, I'm sure I would burn myself.

Bottom line: Much cuter than functional. I'd pass next time.

I bought this because it's so cute... and I kinda suspect it won't be thick enough and it's true. It is really thin, around 2-3mm and has some thicker bumps on it which is useless because the bumps are far apart from one another. It is very comfortable to hold stove top pot cover and handle but you cannot leave it on the pot handle (the C shape type handle). I did that and ouch! The mitten itself is hot. I wouldn't recommend to touch anything in the oven.

I still like to look at it on my counter. It puts a smile on my face every time I look at it.

This is my second set (have one of each, dog and frog). I loved the first one so much, I got a second set for a second home. They are so cute, I leave them out for display. They rinse off well, and are fun! My husband hates to use them...macho man thing, but if you can get the men in your life past the idea of wearing a dog or a frog on their hands, these are very cute, functional, and fun.

The hot pad mitt thing works great, but do not attempt to hold a hot plate in your hand for very long... For it will burn through. I work at an El Chico which uses mostly scolding hot plates... So I hope that helps someone. Also, the silicone is a bit slippery.

I got this because I needed an oven mitt and I thought it was funny.
It doesn't cover your whole hand and works mostly like a sock puppet but I like that because I usually have a hard time getting my hand in oven mitts anyway. This is great for something to put on quick and get a pan out of the oven.
As far as being kind of thin, it is guilty as charged. But I really only use it to move a pan from the oven to the top of the stove. I don't use it to hold onto pans the entire time I'm cooking or in the blacksmith shop.
It also works great for messing with your pet cat/dog/monkey/goldfish if you are so inclined.

I bought this originally because i was enamored with the idea of an oven mitt that could also double as a puppet. As it was noted in other reviews the silicone is not very thick so I tested it on something that was not very hot before trying to take something out of the oven with it. I found that it was not very effective with foods that needed to be heated for a while and almost dropped one thing i was holding with it due to the heat. I did find however due to it's size, i have been able to use it very successfully for microwaved dishes at work and clean up if anything is spilled on it is a snap making it easy and fun to store at my desk. It is definitely better than paper towels for grabbing reheated items from the microwave (which I had been using) and always gets a smile when i bring it out. Though it is not the most versatile mitt and by no means should be your only mitt it has been a fun addition to my collection.

I got Doggie to go with Froggie.

I don't use them in the kitchen because when I bake I need something that cover my whole arm.

I have very small hands and this covers my whole hand. I forgot to add that to my review of Froggie.

Instead of using this in the kitchen, I use this in my crafts--jewelry making and enameling. I don't use it instead of a mitt for the kiln. That would be too crazy. But I do use it for nudging things, helping to transport items that may or may not be hot.

I also use tongs, because you can't be too careful. I won't use for something that is obviously red-hot, unless I'm just nudging it somewhere. I also use it to remind myself that even after I take off that clumsy asbestos mitt, the object may be too hot to touch with bare skin.

They clean easily and cool down fast.

I got mine off ebay but they are the exact same. Like other reviewers I found they are too thin to safely use for hot items from the oven. BUT, I bought two and found they nest together perfectly, making them double thickness and very useable. I also just now inserted a small rectangle piece of foil nested between the mouths of the two mitts when nested together and it works even better. So if you want to use them as an oven mitt for really hot out of the oven items then buy two and slide one inside the other. The other thing I really like about these is that I can use it to slide the oven rack out and then slip out of the mitt very easily to grab a spatula or spoon, take care of the food and slip back into the mitt all one handed. The mitt stays open when faced down on a counter to easily slide my hand into and out of. And I have an XXLarge man's hand; so it should fit anyone. So if you want a cute oven mitt and don't mind buying two for each hand then go for it. Their only other short coming is that they do not protect the wrist so just be careful. PS: Make sure to instruct kids that they might get burned through the oven mitt if they grab a very hot item. Though if doubled I don't think you'd have to worry.
