A handle of a frying pan is not just a stick. It’s an elongation of our hand which makes us possible to grab and control an extremely hot object. Actually I consider it as a plier that is an integral part of our hands during cooking and only should connect to the pan when we want to move it or shake it. You can cook more comfortable and safe as there are no protruding sticks while the pans are sizzling on the stove.
The deep finger grooves and lengthy side plate should keep fingers cool and happy.
The handles are made of a special kind of refractory silicone material that can handle 300-400 Celsius, so you could even put it in the oven by accident without incident.
People with limited use of their hands – e.g. people with arthritis – could use two of these handles on one pan, thereby shifting the weight of the cooking pan to their forearms so they can rely on arm strength, rather than hand strength.
