Silicone has got to be THE coolest material! It’s heat resistant, easy to clean, and extremely flexible. After receiving my silicone bowls in the mail, I started to wonder what kind of other cool products you could buy made out of silicone. It turns out there are a lot of clever inventions out there! Most of them are pretty useful kitchen gadgets, but I found a few other things that caught my eye. Here is the list of my favorite silicone products!
1. Food Huggers
These little kitchen gadgets may be simple, but just imagine how many little plastic baggies this would save you! They create an effortless air tight seal around your fruits and veggies (there is even one made specifically for avocados!). They are also great for covering opened cans, snack cups, or jars. Check them out here.
2. Heat Resistant BBQ Gloves
These gloves are perfect for the grill or the kitchen! Because they resist temperatures up to 425 degrees, you can just use your hands to flip meat on the grill, pull apart a rotisserie chicken, or remove boiled eggs right out of the pot. Pick up a pair here on Amazon.
3. Handy Holsters
Because these silicone holders are heat resistant, they are perfect for hot styling and crafting tools. The silicone clings to any smooth surface, so you can let it hang off the end of your desk, bathroom vanity, or even on a mirror! I love this idea for small spaces where counter and storage space is limited. If you’re not crazy about the fun, bright colors, they also sell them in more neutral colors such as white, grey and black. The nice folks from Holster Brands sent me the Hobby Holster in green, and I’m now using it in my craft room for my hot glue gun. Works great!
