Y’all know that I ♥ Denmark and those crazy (but lovable) Danes. But I can’t help feeling that they got the wrong end of the stick (or should that be hot poker?) when it comes to designing items for removing hot dishes from hot ovens.
I mean, really, why do the Danish public continue to put up with (totally impractical) grydelapper (‘pot holders’)? And, by the way, our neighbours – those silly (but lovable) Swedes – are just as bad. Yes, grydelapper come in all forms and materials…cotton, rubber, silicone. All equally useless and dang fiddly to use! 😛
And let’s not forget the ‘crocheted-classic-do-it-yourself-Christmas-gift’ version of the grydelappe. Hiding at the back of the kitchen drawer or the bottom of the Christmas ornaments box…
The only other choice in Denmark is the single, (lonely) unattached grillhandske (oven glove/mitt). A step up from the grydelappe, but just as awkward to handle.
So where, oh, where is my true love? There can be only one! The double oven glove! Please let me know if you find any in Denmark. My Mum and Dad in Scotland have been bringing double oven gloves over in their suitcase for me, for the past 16 years… ♥
Have a wonderful Wednesday!
