California Man Launches Kickstarter to Promote Kitchen Safety

California Man Launches Kickstarter to Promote Kitchen Safety Invents Oven Mitt That Allows Dexterity and Promotes Safety

Santa Clarita, CA, September 17, 2014, Nearly 350,000 people annually are victims of scalding or burns from accidents that occur while cooking, either on the grill or in the kitchen. Most involve saucepans or tea kettles. Many could be eliminated by using a proper padding device on the hands when touching pans that have been heated. Many hot pads just aren’t made for high temperatures or kitchen dexterity when cooking. This can create more safety issues and actually create harm where they were supposed to bring assurance. One California man, Marcelo Garcia, has created a different kind of oven mitt built for safety and dexterity and has launched a Kickstarter campaign to bring this kitchen must have to the cooking masses that work well for anyone working in the kitchen, from beginner to Iron Chef.

Ulta-Mitt, as it is called, is a 3-Finger mitt constructed from neoprene that is waterproof and heat resistant making it great for indoor or outdoor use. The 3-Finger design allows for more dexterity than an ordinary oven mitt, offering both style and function with users able to have the ability to grab a lid from a hot pan, pick up a hot coffee cup from the microwave or work with small gadgets required while cooking in the kitchen. The neoprene material is also non-slip for a better grip.

This must have kitchen item also comes with a matching neoprene hot pad, which can double as a jar opener for those hard to open lids.

Perks for sponsors include sets of the gloves at manufacturer’s discounts and ahead of their proposed scheduled appearance in stores appearance and for some lucky investors, a complete Healthy eating wooden handle wok cooking set. For those that can’t give, the inventor hopes they will share this story to make the campaign viral through social media.

Would you sponsor a Guinness World Record Attempt for the longest ever barbecue?

Would you sponsor a Guinness World Record Attempt for the longest ever barbecue? That’s exactly what BBQBarbecues are doing to help raise funds for WellChild, an amazing charity that helps and support’s sick children and their families across the UK. When asked if they would be interested in helping WellChild supporter Braham Snyman and his friends attempt to break the Guinness World Record it was an easy answer.

Scott Morris, E-Commerce Manager of BBQBarbecues said: “After a fantastic and very busy 2010 we wanted to give something back and there is no better way to do it than to help a children’s charity. WellChild have a dedicated team of skilled individuals and is well known throughout the country by members of the public and even have a supportive patron in Prince Harry” Scott continued and said “What Braham is trying to do is not only break a record but raise awareness for a very worthwhile cause and we wish them all the luck in his attempt”

To complete the task Braham will have to continuously cook burgers and sausages on thebbq for an incredible 30 hours and aim to beat the current record of 28.5 hours achieved by Jan Braai last year in Cape Town, South Africa. The event is scheduled to take place at Play On Sports, Canary Wharf, London on Sauturday 16th April at 11am and will be finishing on Sunday 17th April at 7pm. The event is also very close to the London Marathon course which will be held on the Sunday.

Anthony Langston, Website Administrator of BBQBarbecues commented: “WellChild is a wonderful organization and as soon as Braham contacted us we worked very hard to make the sponsorship happen. Banners have been prepared, charcoal and gas bbqs have been sent out and Braham and his friends have been tirelessly working to create flyers and a Facebook page in order to promote this great event – We wish them all the best and pray the weather holds”
