If you’re keen to teach the kids how to cook, but afraid of burns or messy oven disasters, you’ll be glad to hear that we’ve unearthed some ingenious cookware accessories designed to prevent just this kind of kitchen calamity!
Avoid Nasty Burns with Protecta Shelfguard
One of the most common accidents in the kitchen is a hand or arm being burned on the shelf of a hot oven, and when a child is eager to see the results of their hard work they may not be mindful of this when reaching in to retrieve their cuisine.
To guard against such mishaps, the Protecta Shelfguard has been designed specifically to fit over the front edge of your oven’s shelves, protecting you and the kids from accidental burns. The Shelfguard’s unique ribbed design enables it to lose heat more quickly than the metal oven shelf would, meaning that it becomes less hot to the touch and is less likely to cause burns.
Because the Shelfguard fits only onto the oven’s shelves, it can be used in any type of oven and is easy to remove when it’s time to clean. Undoubtedly a cheap and easy way to stay safe in the kitchen.
The base of your oven can quickly become littered with food crumbs and drips, which become crustier and harder to remove every time you switch on the heat. Letting your child loose with the baking could be a recipe for disaster in terms of oven spillages, but using a Heavy Duty Oven Liner guarantees it will be much easier to clean up afterwards!
These reusable sheets are simply placed on the bottom of your oven to catch any drips, crumbs or spills. They’re made from PTFE coated non-stick fabric so can be easily removed, cleaned and replaced – you can even put them in the dishwasher! So no matter how much mess your little monsters make, you don’t need to worry about the clean-up.
Heavy Duty Oven Liners are suitable for use in gas ovens, electric ovens and even fan ovens, and can withstand temperatures of up to 260°C. Considering that cleaning the oven is among the most hated of household chores, anything that makes it that bit easier is sure to be a huge hit!
*PLEASE NOTE: Children should be supervised at all times when using an oven.
