This Star Trek Spock Oven Mitt is completely logical, because no one likes burnt hands. How can you give the Vulcan salute with a burnt hand? You can’t. So protect your hands in the geekiest way possible.
This oven mitt makes a lot of sense, because the needs of the chef outweigh the needs of the few. Or the one. Something like that. Plus, it just looks great to bake with a giant Vulcan hand.
