Light-up Oven Mitt:
This concept builds on the rigid form implementation of the oven mitt. Made of silicone or a similar material, the oven mitt is kept in the grasping hand formation. The space between the thumb pocket and the finger pocket is always kept open. A thermocouple is located in the palm portion of the mitt. A color-coded light up thermometer is located on the thumb. The orientation of the mitt leads the user to use the mitt in the orientation where the thermometer is facing up. The readout can then be easily seen by the user, who can then gauge the temperature of the pan being held.
