Not Cookware- but Cookware relate - SUPER small mitts- calling all Petites

I've ordered ~online~ over the years various mitts/pot handlers. All seen way too big for size *small*, pot handlers that are too thick to even use easily when handling hot lids. I swear - my goto pot handler is a microfiber cloth --- the mitt I'm using is a very old one with a slight hole in it but the size is good and the DEXTERITY is great. It's a regular ole cotton mitt. The Silicones I tried have not dexterity but do keep the heat away.

What ~small~ mitts / pot handlers have you found that works..

  1. I have this problem too. Thanks for starting this thread! The worst offenders are those rubbery mitts... I dropped pies before trying to use those because I cannot grip/hold anything due to how gigantic they are.

    1. I have tiny hands and these calphalon ones work for me:

      They're best used with pots on the stove, and are a little awkward pulling things from the oven, especially if there's not a lot of maneuvering space around the hot pot or pan.

      They clean up well in the washer and look nice.

      1. I don't use mitts at all, just small square pot holders.
