Oven door safety gloves

Manipulate scalding hot items in safety!
  [vote for,

I cook lots of food that needs to be 'turned once' during cooking - waffles, burgers, sausages etc, and usually try to do it using my fingers.

Needless to say I get burned a lot.

Surely a pair of safety gloves could be mounted in the glass door of the oven (similar to the gloves used in nuclear power plants to manipulate radioactive matter in a case)?

One would simply slide his hands into the gloves, and could happily turn his food over and over in the scorching heat of the oven without personal injury.

       1) This would make the glass door less than fully useful.
2) You cook waffles and 'burgers in the oven?

       I suspect the heat loss through the glove-box style oven door would make the oven too inefficient.   

       The simple solution would be to get a pair of tongs. Turning burgers with fingers is never likely to have a happy ending.   

       Alternatively, try the "shark" heatproof oven glove [link]- turn your burgers without losing your fingerprints.

       Also useful for the washer, dryer and glass-windowed freezer and dish washer.

       [hazel] use TONGS to turn burgers? that's the dumbest thing i ever heard ;-)

       How about waldo arms? Though I guess we've technically done that with an outdoor grill set up...

       "Tongues ya bass?" Sounds wrong to me.
my face your, Jul 29 2003

       Using tongues to turn sausages would definitely result in nasty burns.

       Would it be possible to put some sort of heat sensitive spike through the middle of the burgers so as the upper side gets hot (from a grill)the lower part of the spike expands, extends and flips the burger. Then the process begins again. Mind you, I suppose they'd gradually 'walk' their way into all sorts of unexpected places. Hold on, I've just invented burger racing.
