Keep your hands safe from burns with the Sunsella Cast Iron Potholder. Easily slips onto cookware handles to move hot pans with ease without the need for clumsy fabric mitts or oven gloves.
Perfect for gripping hot pans when rotating or stirring and for moving to the oven, stovetop or kitchen sink for cleaning.
The silicone cover will keep your panhandle at optimum handling temperatures. Just place on the handle as you need to move the pan and it will be cool to touch. (Do not keep on while cooking)
Can be used with various brands of cast iron skillet pans including; Lodge, Le Creuset and more (size 9”+ recommended for Lodge pans)
Can I leave it on while cooking on the stovetop or oven?
The silicone is rated to 450F, but we do not recommend stovetop or continued oven use, as the silicone handle will then be hot to touch. If used on the stovetop or oven, some other heat protection must be used before touching pan.
The picture shows a handle split in two to reveal inner ribbing. Can it actually be disassembled like this for cleaning?
No, this is just an illustration to show the internal ribs, the handle is one piece.
Can the handle be used on multiple pan handles?
Yes, it is designed as a temporary cover, which can be used on numerous pans providing the handle dimensions fit.
Does it need to fit over the entire pan handle?
No, just enough of the handle to be able to grip the pan safely, it is still advised to keep some distance from the edge of the pan to avoid burns.
Can this be used on a gas cook top?
Yes, but please keep away from direct flames, as this will burn the silicone.
