How often have you reached for a pan on the stove and burned your hand? It seems that we all do it at one time or another, often because we don’t have a potholder in easy reach. Or we try to grab the handle using a towel that happens to be close by. This rarely works, and we end up with another burned area. Grabbing a small potholder often has the same effect, simply because they are too thin to completely protect your hand.
Custom oven mitts are the perfect answer to that problem. The small loop on these mitts makes them easy to hang right near the stove where they are always handy. No more having to wonder where you left one, and trying to hunt for it when you need it right away. The promotional oven mitts are also usually thicker and do more to protect your hands from the heat.
The Silicone oven mitt is the perfect example of a best selling promotional item. It is long lasting, useful, and has a large imprint of your logo to constantly remind the user of your business. The silicone used in this mitt can withstand temperatures of up to 670 degrees of sustained heat or 930 degrees of short term heat. The sleeve of this mitt is made of cotton canvas for added protection. Your company logo will be placed on the outside of the arm for right handed cooks and on the inside for left handed ones to make sure that always have maximum visibility.
Personalized oven mitts make great advertising sense for any business, as well as often being used as souvenirs from events a customer has attended. They are not an expensive item, and therefore are suited to large scale giveaways at an event or tradeshow. They last a long time, and receive daily use, thus serving as a constant reminder of your generosity in providing them. Each mitt is a quality product, designed with the user’s safety in mind.
Your customers will want to keep several on hand for preparing festive meals for the holidays, so you might even consider having a few extras available for sale.
