Ah, the good 'ol days of asbestos lined hot pan holders...
When I was a kid, my grandma had (prolly still does) these thin little hot pan holders (squares and mitts) that had advertisments on them, and the great thing about them was that THEY WORKED. She washed them in the sink now and again and they looked awful but now I understand why she held on to them (besides being a person who lived through the depression). Well, they don't make them like that any more, because they had asbestos linings.
I keep buying these nice, thick mitts at the restaurant supply, and they seem to get thin on the important parts in hardly any time at all. I imagine in a restaurant setting, they would be almost disposable!
Where can I get some mitts that can be washed, and will last? I am sick of getting burned.
The only holder I have that seemse to last is one pampered chef one that I got at a garage sale, but it is not a mitt, and I would like mitts, since I tend to bump the top of my hands on the racks.
