My fiance keeps burning his hands on his iron pans because the handles get so hot.  I made him a set of these pot handles too protect his hands.  I bought an old sweater, fulled it and then sewed these up.  I wouldn't use them in the oven or with a gas stove for fear of them catching on fire.







I plan on making a whole bunch more.  Tell me what you think!

I think you've come up with an ingenious idea.  What about using an old mattress pad as extra cushioning/heat-proofing, too?  And they are cute, ta boot!  Smiley

I think they are great and can be made any size for any pot.  You are so clever.

What a great idea!  I need to make some for myself to bring camping - it sure beats using a sock  Cheesy

It looks really sweet, a pan with a sock. I dont have only iron pans, but otherwise I really would really make those.
