The marvels of modern mould-making have allowed us to turn food-safe silicone into an endless run of novel kitchen accessories. This includes oven mitts in every shape, size and colour, but few have to be as satisfying to use as chomping down on a hot baking sheet with a silicone T. Rex on your hand.

This original ThinkGeek creation is available now for just $US15 ($21), and promises to protect your hands from burns while poking around the hottest depths of your oven. The outside of the silicone T. Rex is finished with a scaly skin-like texture, and the ridges inside its mouth, while not exactly anatomically-accurate, provide extra grip for taking down prey like a pan of chocolate chip cookies.
