What an invention...

For years and years I have burned my fingers getting things in or out of the oven.  I've written about that before.
Well, why didn't anyone ever tell me about this handy little kitchen thingy:
It pulls out the oven rack or pushes it back into the hot oven.  Genius!! I pulled out some baking ravioli to sprinkle on some cheese, pushed it back in to brown, pulled it out again...AND never once burned a finger.

It's the height of strawberry season here in Florida--although, in truth, we have been eating Florida strawberries since January.  We get nice, sweet strawberries in Vermont.  The season lasts about three weeks.  And usually they do not get to monster size.

  1. Nice little gadget. We have a strawberry in Oregon that is very sweet, consequently it has a short shelf life, and never makes it out of this area. People go crazy trying to get their hands on these strawberries. They're also on the small size.

  4. I like that gadget. Think I will look for one. I never can find a pot holder when I need one.
    Those look like Plant City strawberries.

  5. I had one of those things and couldn't ever use it without creating a mess. My oven racks never slid smoothly enough to use it.

  6. I remember one year my husband and I were driving to Florida and just before we crossed the state line we passed a farm with a stand where a black woman was selling fresh strawberries. We stopped and bought the and ate the without washing them. They were the best I ever had and almost as big as that baseball you have in your hand!
