22 Jan Pot Holder? Pot Smoulder.
“Don’t tell me,” Andrew says, handing me the charred remains of our brand new pot handle. “This is going on the blog.”
One $8 pot handle and a cast iron skillet’s worth of crispy bacon later, Andrew’s cursing and I have fresh blog post fodder.
Even the Le Creuset name couldn’t save this one. Apparently the exterior is coated with Teflon so grease won’t stick. Too bad they didn’t make it heat resistant. The material never touched the flame. This damage came from the butting up against the hot pan.
Why don’t they make shorter pot handles? In five years of looking, I’ve yet to find one that isn’t too long for our cast iron frying pan.
What kitchen gadget eludes you?
