I am super excited for summer cookouts after seeing all of these Geeky Oven Mitts. Etsy merchant Dee Ryan of Dee~ZingZ specializes in making unique and nerdy oven mitts. Her mitts cover nearly all corners of geekdom and are inspired by comic books, cartoons and video games.
Dee~ZingZ's mitts don't just have a single image of a Pokemon or superhero slapped on them. They are covered in said image, letting everyone effectively know that the cook is also a big nerd. That may not be such a bad thing as comic books and video games are both pretty mainstream and are seemingly at the height of their popularity. It also never hurts to cram your kitchen with functional pop culture references. These Geeky Oven Mitts sell for $13 apiece and are available now.
