I admit, the old one is rather ratty. Rob has wanted me to replace it for months. It still works fine, although some of the fabric had burned through expose the terry cloth batting underneath. (Who touched the bare heating element? Not me!)
I'm a messy cook, so normally I choose dark colors for my mitts. This time, though, I went for durability and heat resistance. I picked what was left of my cotton upholstery fabric, stitching the heaviest onto the fingers and thumb. I use old bath towels for the batting. That's enough insulation for me but this time I went whole hog and added Insul-Bright to the palm of the mitt.
Isn't it so pretty and clean compared to the old one? I'm guessing it will stay clean about three baking days. If I'm careful. Ha. I got a chance to try it out the other night. Wow! the extra layer of Insul-Bright makes a difference. I couldn't feel any heat off the cookie sheets. It will get lots of use.
