I'm a Yank, and I often see on British TV a pot holder or oven mitt like this: two square mitts (terry cloth?) connected by a dish towel or tea towel, so it's all one piece. What are they called?
The ones I've seen, on Great British Baking Show for instance, are not gloves. They are two square pot holders that you slip your hands inside, connected with by an additional piece of cloth. Maybe the cloth helps prevent burning your forearms on the pan?
I cannot find out what this is called, and we just don't seem to have them in the USA. I'd really like to know where to get some.
