It's a super potholder!

You guys know from my posts I'm usually into the techno-mechanical gadgets and accessories, but this item Shelly bought and tried out was kinda cool so I thought I'd post a picture of it here.

The Pond Piggie group was out camping this weekend and eating again as usuall. OK, no wise cracks about us piggies and our overeating habits Anyway, since we usually have a covered dish dinner when camping together, Shelly would always bring a hot pot or dish outside and put it on the tablecloth. Virtually everytime two things happend. First, the food always tended to get dripped onto the cloth potholder, and second, I was never helpful enough to put the potholder away after we were done eating soon enough and more than a few times, the thing got damp with dew as the evering wore on.

After the wives had commented a couple times about the above issues, Bill found these silicon hot pads. The material is semi sticky silicon rubber so they work like jar lid openers too. The Hot Pads come in three colors so you can pick your favorite.

The hotpad is used like any other pad in that you can use it to take something hot out of the oven, or put a hot pots on top of it. The pad has raised rounded bumps on it to hold the pot off the surface so the pot stays warm longer too and it definitely is non-slip so you won't drop a hot dish or have something slide on it. You know how many times at a covered dish dinner you find the dishes to hot to touch, but when you try to scoop your food, the casserole dish keeps sliding....Well no more.

The coolest feature though for something so obviously simple is that it's washable so no more funky dripped on potholders

Oh yeah! we also discovered they are great for underneath dishes or pots while traveling. The hotpad gets rid of sliding rattling dishes while driving.

OK, now back to my eating
