This is their claim as to why this is useful, it will work with any size of pan and it is small so therefore easy to store. Plus it has those fancy handles to grab onto. Here’s my problem with this. It’s $100 go use a potholder. Potholders will work with any size pan and are small enough to store easily. Not to mention they’re machine washable. Of course potholders don’t have handles, but frankly they’re so much cheaper that I think I’ll learn to live without the handles.
