Why yes, I would use the Power Mitt, which is not the superhero alter-ego of a certain Massachusetts-based former presidential candidate, but rather an oven mitt designed to look like Mattel's famous Nintendo peripheral. I would use it to take my cookies out of the oven, and it would rule.

Creator Pete Hottelet of Omni Consumer Products is currently selling the gloves through a sort of pre-order thing at indiegogo. Hottelet's done a lot of projects like this in the past, including that Robocop statue for Detroit.

I gotta say, I really do think one of these would make for a great gift. And hey, if you give Hottelet $10,000, you can get a gold-plated one. Because everyone loves a gold-plated oven mitt!
