Silicone Cooking Set #Review #SiliconeSavings

     I'm getting a little obsessed.  With silicone, that it.  Not that I've jumped the silicone wedding ring wagon or anything (no, thanks!).  But in the kitchen, it's replacing everything.  It's replacing my utensils, it's replacing my muffin pans, it's replacing my pot holders, and now even my trivets!  What's so great?  Well, if you haven't tried it, let me open your eyes to the wonder of silicone.
     Okay, so at first I was scared to use anything silicone.  It was thin and soft, it worried me.  I just knew that it would melt or allow me to get burned.  But I also knew Kitchen silicone is all the rage and that many people can't be wrong, so I got a pair of silicone gloves for family for Christmas and tested them out before hand.  I loved them so much that I kept them, here's why:
     First and foremost, you will not burn.  Silicone gloves barely let any warmth through to your hands.  You mostly feel nothing.  You can reach in and grab the oven rack directly and pull it out and feel mild warmth on your hands.  It's incredible!
     Secondly, it doesn't melt.  It feels so unnatural to put soft rubber onto a frying pan or into the oven, but it really doesn't melt!  I've let my silicone spatula just sit in the pan and nothing happens.  No smell, no burning, no deformation... nothing!
     And also, it's really terribly difficult to damage.  I suppose you could take scissors to them, but in normal use it would be very hard.  Since they don't melt with normal cooking temperatures and they don't tear, you would have to cut it to damage it.
     So I'm a little obsessed, I've always been terrified of taking hot things out of the oven and these erase that fear... mostly, it's a bit of an irrational fear.  Anyways, I'm collecting.  And I just came across this silicone cooking set that not only gave me two more gloves, but also two double-duty pot holder/trivets.  Here's what I thought of them:
     The gloves are a lot like other gloves I have seen and tried.  They are red though, which is different.  They have a really sweet heart design all over them on the outside.  They are smooth on the inside and fit me well, but will also work well for my husband who has much larger hands.
     The trivets are great.  The design isn't the same, but it's the same color, so it matches just fine.  It has a big hole to hang from, which I like.  A big hole is pretty high on my list of kitchen-worthy criteria because I hang a lot of my things.
     It's made from the same awesome silicone that the gloves are.  This stuff will protect your counter tops, protect your hands, and anything else.  They are a nice size, big enough for even the big pans.  You can double them up to protect your table form cookie sheets or roasters.  They're just awesome.
     If you haven't taken the plunge and tried silicone yet, I highly recommend it.  It's easy to clean and looks great too.  I think the only downfall at all is that it tends to stick to hair/fur, and the like.  So even rubbing against your shirt could cause it to need rinsing.  But it's the only downfall.  I will never go back.
