My wife and daughter laugh and make fun of me because I use oven mitts to pull things out of the oven.  They say that's what old people use.  They use those square pads that I associate with picking up pots.  They also always complain about either burning themselves or almost burning themselves.  

Is it true that oven mitts are only for old people?  I thought this was the norm until I put them on and was laughed at.

I use an oven mitt to pull out hot pans from the oven.  Square pads are where you set hot pots on the counter or table.

Do you see Mike Trout wearing one of those square pot holder pads? No, he wears an oven mitt. 

You’re fine Sheik. Be like Mike.

Millennials aren’t using oven mitts (some dumb online article, probably)

Millennials use Door Dash and Grub Hub.

No, they are used by intelligent people that don't want to get burned.

When I still lived at home, my mom had one that looked like a cat with  the area between the thumb and index finger was a mouth.

I used to go up to her, open the cat's "mouth" and meow at her.

I'm not sure what that has to do with the topic at hand, though.

I have a gray one and I always say it looks like a whale.  And I do a whale voice.  Awesome dad humor.

Bet that impression blows.  Are we talking low-pitch or high-pitch?

I was literally going to post this exact sentence, including "FTW".

Ove Gloves rock.

Why would anyone care what you use to take something out of the oven? How many wives would kill to have their husband ever go near a stove to assist.

Assist?  I'm making myself some pizza rolls.

Ahhh, see this is where it is going wrong.  It's not the actual oven mitt your family has a problem with; it is the way you are using it.

One of the best Christmas presents for my mom years ago.  She still uses it.  Great product.

Weird. I associate the pot holder pads with old people more than I do the mitts. 

But Ove gloves are obviously the way to go.

So, if you are looking for confirmation that your wife isn't very bright and has passed that gene on to your daughter... confirmed.

I've got 7 oven mitts. Might be overkill but i like to mix it up. I also have silicone gripper things but they are useless so i use my mitts. Laugh all you want ;)

I tried an Ove Glove once but even the XL seems like it's made for little old ladies. Takes me 5 minutes to put on and take off. Much easier just to use a kitchen towel.

I remember thinking that, too, the first time I tried one.  But they loosen up pretty quickly.

I personally only use them for sexual foreplay.  Usually in conjunction with a spatula.

I highly recommend working a melon baller into your routine, if, you know, you are talking about heterosexual sex.

This goes well with my guacamole and bacon - from another thread. 

I think DW was the ultimate source of it, but I am not sure if he recalls.
