What could possibly be better than owning Rue’s oven mitts? You do realize that she baked several times a week, right? That means that Blanches hands were in and out of these mitts hundreds of times over the years. Perhaps that energy will transfer to your own baking- if you’re lucky, because, no kidding, that woman was an EXCELLENT baker!. Rue’s mitts are still in good shape, too. There is plenty of use left in these things. Rue’s oven mitts come with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
