Let's play another round of:
GOOD IDEA - OR - WASTE OF MONEY?
Today's Item up for Vote:
Silicone Oven Rack Guard
-- Protect your arms and fingers when reaching into your hot oven. Fabric snaps easily on the front rail of most oven racks, each guard is 18 inches long. Made from fabric first developed for firefighters, the guards protects by slowing the heat transfer from metal oven racks to your skin. Safe for temperatures up to 500 degrees F and can remain attached to oven rack between uses. Guards are not intended to use to pull out hot oven rack.

Deedee Warner: Great idea if you cook a lot. I can't count the number of times I've burned myself that way.
Raeanne Kauffman Knull: Wholey crap, that's a great idea. All
you gotta do is take a picture of my arms and see the scars from doing this alllll the time! I gotta have these!
Stephanie Miko: Brilliant! I am forever burning the backs of my hands!
Stephanie Miko: We could avoid those burns for free, though, if we'd just pull out the shelf first . . .
Michaela Meyer Martin: Interesting, but I don't generally burn my arm on the oven itself, but I won't say it's a waste.
Delissa Ferguson: good idea, but I'm more concerned about what the heck is laying in the pie crust in this picture lol
Julie Furry: Great idea would have saved me a painful arm burn if I had that.
Noel Eloise Svendson: They are cooking beads to weigh the crust down so it doesn't puff up
Ann Freeman Coder: Good idea. I need them. I always burn myself.
Frugal Freebies: They are pie beads - Perfect Crust Beaded Pie Weight Chains from Jaz Innovations produce beautiful results with minimum effort and no mess. Bake perfect, flat pie crusts every time. Perfect Crust beaded pie weight chains are easy to use. Coil in the bottom of an unbaked pie.
Mary Talley: Pie weights are an old idea. I have some ceramicones. The rack guard is a great idea since we have all burned ourselves at one time or another on those things.
Heather Renee Brauer: Yeah, the pie beads are a waste of money, but the rack guard is awesome. When teaching my kids to bake, every one of them has burnt their arm on the rack.
Vicky Purvis Waters: The rack guard is a fabulous idea!
Stacey Chaffin Would be good especially when teaching kids to cook.
Vicki Johnson Peete: My elderly mother frequently burns herself in the oven rack. I might try these for her
Kimberly Foote Ware: Great idea! I burned my arm twice in the last month. I have a toddler and a baby and forget that you can't turn your head when getting things out of the oven. Duh
