Cover Hot Handle With Oven Mitt

Some recipes we use call for browning meat in a pan and then putting the pan in the oven to let the meat finish cooking. Whenever I use a pan with a long handle, the same problem occurs: When the meat is finished cooking, I almost always forget the handle is extremely hot and I end up touching it as I finish the meal preparations. As a solution, whenever I take the pan out, I put an oven mitt over the handle. No more burns on hands, fingers or arms, or on anyone else who happens to be helping out.

I had a similar problem with my cast-iron skillet. I finally sewed a potholder (square one) into a rectangle, and slipped it over the handle of the skillet. I just leave it on the skillet handle so I don't have to hunt for it!
