Oven Rack Guards Safeguard Your Elderly Loved One From Burns
If you have an elderly loved one who still enjoys being in the kitchen, you should take some measures to ‘granny proof’ that room. One thing I did was buy and snap on those oven rack guards in my own oven. I love the things!
Oven rack guards stay cool even when the rack is hot and protect one’s forearms when reaching into a hot oven. I know for a fact that they’ve saved me from at least two burns that would have happened had they not been installed in the oven.
Most of the oven rack guards shown below stay cool up to 500 degrees and fit all ovens. I do suggest though that you wash them before installing as, with mine at least, there was a slight odor the first few times I used them (before I washed them).
Note: I threw in a link for the non-stick oven liner below just because I think they’re great for an elderly cook who doesn’t want to mess with cleaning the oven.

Oven Rack Pullers
My Uncle Al was into woodworking when he retired. He made all of the family these great oven rack pullers. They’re a great way to add additional insurance against forearm burns.
