Pot and frypan handles come in stay-cool bakelite (a kind of plastic), oven-safe stainless steel or a combination of stainless steel with silicone materials. Most importantly, they are ergonomically designed and assure a safe and comfortable grip.
Bakelite is a kind of plastic. This handle will never become hot during cooking, but can only be put in the oven up to certain temperatures (most bakelite is oven safe up to 180°C/356°F).
Our stainless steel handles are constructed to minimize heat transfer. Nevertheless, lids and handles may become hot during prolonged cooking. Use caution when removing lids or lifting with the handles. Touch lightly to be sure the handles have not become hot.
