Did you know

The mysterious Mr Mitt

There is a pervasive rumour that oven gloves are sometimes called oven mitts because, it is said, that they were first invented by a Texan American baker named Earl Mitt in the early 1870s. It’s said that he suffered a terrible burn while baking, leaving his left hand permanently damaged. He reportedly used a combination shoe leather and wool (source). None of this story can be verified as there aren’t any patents for ‘oven mitts’ in made by this mysterious Mr Mitt (source).

Absestos gloves

Also did you know that throughout the 20th century, many heat resistant gloves (and even a fireman’s suit) were made of the now banned substance asbestos (video, video). Asbestos, although very good at insulating heat, can also be very damaging to the lungs and was fully banned in the UK in 1999 (source).
