Growing up my mom always had a drawer filled with oven mitts. Some of them were holiday-themed, others had goofy animal faces on them, and then there were the plain ones that someone must have gifted her. I live in a small apartment in New York now and am the proud owner of just one set of oven mitts (because: space). They are wildly practical and nothing special to look at.
Well, I think I might have to buy another pair. I've had my eye on these ridiculous bear oven mitts for a couple years now, and they are currently on sale. You can get these bear-tastic oven mitts for $18 right now on Amazon, and they normally cost $20. It's not much of a sale, but hey! 11 percent off isn't nothing.
Kitchn has talked about these oven mitts for a couple years now (including in this roundup recently). You can find these mitts from other retailers, but they're usually a little more expensive and from sources I don't necessarily trust.
These bear oven mitts from Fred & Friends have been reviewed on Amazon close to 460 times, and have an almost five-star rating. Most of the reviews involve some kind of goofy dad joke. The only bad ratings on the mitts say that the fit can be a little strange and it was harder to grab the baking pan out of the oven than expected.
