Get-It Potholders

Get-It Potholders

I have had silicone potholders in the past, but I far prefer to use my more traditional fabric potholders. The standard silicone potholder tends to be little more than a smallish square of heat-resistant material, and even though they promise to deliver more protection from heat and a better grip, I always go back to fabric. The fabric potholders I have are also squarish, but they have pockets in their thick fabric that I can slip my hand into. I’ve never had a problem with grip and definitely feel that my hand is more protected inside the pocket than out and trying to hold onto the silicone potholders.

The isi Get-It Potholder is a silicone potholder with a unique design that fixes most of the problems that I have with silicone. Also a square of heat-resistant material, the Get-It has a raised knob that can slip between your fingers and give you a very secure grip on both the potholder and whatever you’re trying to grab. The knob can also act as a suction cup, so you can stick the potholder to the oven door and keep it handy. It still takes some getting used to over a fabric potholder that protects the tips of your fingers during use, but this is a big improvement and makes this simple design much easier to use.

    We use silicone mitts that have worked great for us. But it would be nice to offer something with a wider finger spread yet still protecting the fingertips.

    Do you know of anything like that?

    I quite like the plain ones myself, I tend to use mine as a pot stand to protect my counter (2 under trays) and they make stiff jars easier to open due to the excellent grip.

    Some of the best pot-holders I have ever used are made of leather – suede like. I bought them on-line at chefs catalog but they have been discontinued!
