Amira has a complaint. She's heard that micro-mitts are just the right size to protect fingers when extracting items from the microwave. "Well," she's told us, "they don't fit my hands."
To Amira we say, "While we aim to please all of our customers, we must admit some items may not be right for everyone. We are quite sure, however, that your Mom and Dad will love them. We know that sometimes they decide to sit down and eat at the exact moment you had other plans for them. Now when they warm their cold meal in the microwave they don't have to worry about burning their fingers."
Visit our Etsy shop if, unlike Amira, you think micro-mitts help you in the kitchen of the break room.
They're here! We've been promising these mitts and they are now tested and ready to order. Full size mitts, dish towels that drape into your soup, bare fingers, all off these approaches add up to frustration. These mitts allow the dexterity needed to remove hot steamy items from the microwave while protecting your finger tips. They are small and have a loop for hanging so they will be easy to store. Sold in pairs we think you will want a pair for yourself and for shower or host gifts. Our first model is in brown and beige, but additional colors will follow.
Each pair of mitts purchased provides a twelve dollar donation to the St Vincent de Paul Society.
PS: Happy Mother's Day!
A few more photos and our micro-mitts will be posted in our Etsy shop. We think Mother's Day is an appropriate day for these mitts to make their debut. Each purchase will provide twelve dollars for the St Vincent de Paul Society (SVdP) of Frederick, a group that has helped many mothers (and fathers) when they have encountered hard times. SVdP offers help to any resident of Frederick county and works in concert with other local social service agencies.
Possessing a good pincer grasp didn't keep this lobster out of hot water, but using your pincer grasp and our micro-mitts will keep your fingertips cool when pulling hot plates from the microwave. We've been tweaking the design, testing them in the kitchen, and in a matter of days our micro-mitts should be ready to make their debut.
Our micro-mitts will be sold for the benefit of the St. Vincent de Paul Society as they work with other social service agencies, giving a helping hand to neighbors in need.
You'e just heated up your tea in the microwave. You know the mug will be hot so you wisely grab an oven mitt. Then it happens. You spill your tea. Now instead of sitting back with a cup of tea you are cleaning up the mess in the microwave. The problem: Conventional oven mitts were meant for conventional ovens not microwave ovens. At a Cause for Crafting we are working on a solution to this problem. Stay posted, our micro-mitts should be ready soon.
