I’ll be starting my annual Christmas baking in a few weeks. Every year, I bake a variety of sweets to have on hand for the holidays. A few of my all-time favourites include peanut brittle, chocolate haystacks, peanut butter fudge and shortbread cookies. I’ll probably include a few new ones this year. I’ve found a bunch on Pinterest that look so scrumptious! What’s different this year is that I’ll be baking in style! I’ll be wearing my gorgeous new Carolyn’s Kitchen apron while I bop around the kitchen to Christmas music. For the huge clean up task, I have a fun (and functional) pair of dish gloves to wear too!
Cilantro Cooks sent me two items from their Carolyn’s Kitchen product line: Carolyn’s Kitchen Heart Cupcake Apron and matching Carolyn’s Kitchen Heart Cupcake Dish Gloves. I feel like a domestic diva when I wear them!
Their vintage-inspired dish gloves are made one size fits most. I have small hands (John calls them little kid hands) and I found that they were very comfortable and roomy. The glove portion is made of vinyl hypoallergenic with a soft flock lining. I appreciate that they are latex-free since I am latex sensitive.
The gloves measure 14″ long and that includes the 100% patterned cotton cuff. Who knew that dish gloves could be so nice?
They say you can wear them for hours without sweating too! I haven’t had to wear them for hours at a time just yet. That time will be coming up over the holidays. I think that’s an important attribute though. Hot and sweaty hands are the worst.
Notice that one side of the glove is textured? That helps a lot with grip and so you can firmly hold the wet, slippery dishes.
I absolutely adore the Heart Cupcake apron. The colours are so me! Pink and red are two of my favourite colours and the design is both fun and feminine. I definitely feel more glamourous when I put it on. It beats cooking in sweats and a t-shirt!
The cut is also very flattering. It ties so it’s fitted at the waist and I like that it hides my problem areas! It measures 28 inches long and on me it goes to about my knees (I’m 5’6).
There’s also a front pocket in the shape of a heart you could stash your cell phone in. I always multi-task in the kitchen. I’ll be cooking (or baking), chatting on Facebook and sharing pictures of food on Instagram.
The material is 100% cotton and can be washed in cold water and tumbled dry on low. It’s fashionable and low maintenance and easily folds up to put into my apron/placemat drawer in my kitchen.
The Carolyn’s Kitchen Heart Cupcake Apron and Dish Gloves are $42 and $22, respectively, on Cilantro Cooks. They also have other styles and patterns you can check out too. If you need a gift for a friend or loved one who enjoys entertaining or spending time in the kitchen, an apron with dish gloves would be a wonderful gift to give them.
Cilantro Cooks has free ground shipping on orders over $50 in both USA & Canada and they accept both Paypal and credit card for payment. Happy shopping!
