Wood oven rack pullers

Hot Oven Rack Pullers

A woman came to my booth at a craft show this summer and asked if I had an oven rack puller. I had to admit that I did not know what it was. She went home and came back with her broken one and asked if I could make one for her. I traced the business end of the tool on a scrap of paper and produced the ones above.

The hook part is used to pull a hot oven rack out so things can be removed from it without having to reach in the hot oven. The fork on the end is to push the hot rack back in the oven. It all made perfect sense to me. As a physician I had seen linear burn marks on the top of the arm in professional cooks from oven burns. This simple tool will prevent that. Add some interesting wood and you have an inexpensive that tool anyone would love. Wood species may vary.
