My wife is always in the kitchen so, when I search for a gift for her, I look for kitchen-related products. I know you’re probably thinking that this is comparable to giving your wife a vacuum cleaner or a washer/dryer as a gift but my wife is truly interested in anything to do with the kitchen and cooking.
She would prefer new cast iron cookware such as a Le Creuset pot over a shiny new gold necklace. So, when her birthday is on the horizon or Christmas is around the corner, I head over to the kitchen store in the mall.
A few years ago as one of her Christmas presents, I bought her two Casabella silicone pot holders that were very different-looking to me unlike any pot holder I had ever seen. Silicone was just then becoming much more popular in the kitchen world and the feel and design of these pot holders were extremely unique.
They did not look like those large gloves that are worn to take a hot pan out of the oven and that was appealing to me. Another feature that I really liked was that the pot holder could do double-duty as a trivet upon which you can place a hot pot right out of the oven. Due to its unique air-pocket design and feel, you can also use it as a jar opener. One other feature that I really liked was the small hole near the top of each pot holder which allows you to hang it from a hook in your kitchen.
My brother is also an avid home chef in his recently-remodeled kitchen (OK, we’re jealous) and I noticed that he owns a pair of silicone pot holders which are the bulky gloves that you typically find. After using them for a while, he admitted to me that they were much too bulky for him and, after seeing our Casabella pot holders, he made it a point to pick up a few of them for himself. Another great feature of these pot holders/trivets is that they clean very easily with warm water. We opted for the black pot holders as all of our appliances are black in our kitchen but there are other colors from which you can choose. The black matches another silicone product we have in our kitchen, the World Cuisine silicone baking mat. Silicone in the kitchen is widely utilized in many products today due to its non-stick surface, comfortable feel, resistance to heat, and low cost.
