To prevent myself from getting another burn while cooking I recently purchased a cast iron skillet handle cover. The handle cover is made of silicone and all I have to do is slide it on. The cover can withstand 450 degrees of heat, which is perfect because when I use the oven, I usually set it between 350 and 425 degrees. The cover can really come in handy for baking jobs when I have to move from cooking on the stove top to cooking in the oven.
These handle covers make it easy to grip hot cookware. They are dishwasher safe which makes cleanup a snap. When I don’t need them I store them away in a drawer by my stove for easy retrieval when I next need them. They are very convenient.
Anyone who has every suffered a burn know that they can be very painful. Such a simple inexpensive invention to keep you and others safe in the kitchen is a no brainer.
