Anyone who has ever cooked on a stove top has likely been burned in some way shape or form. Whether it’s touching a burner you thought had already cooled down, or oil popping out of the pan and onto your hand, it usually happens at least once. Long kitchen utensils help deter injury, but they’re not exactly a shield for your hand.
If you want to make sure your fingers aren’t going to get scorched off when flipping food, then you might want to get the Fingertongs. It’s a wearable set of tongs made out of silicone, and it will provide a barrier for some of your hand. It can withstand temperatures up to 675 degrees Fahrenheit, and can be tossed in the dishwasher when you’re done with it. This is a $12 purchase that looks like it might be worth its weight if it will save you a couple of burn scars.
