What Can I Use a Pot Holder For?
Pot holders are practical items that you can use in the kitchen:
* Set a scolding pot/pan/baking sheet/casserole dish on a pot holder to protect your counters and furniture.

  • Use them like oven mitts when taking something out of the oven or microwave.

  • Use them as a portable placemat. Place a pot holder underneath a hot bowl or plate, so you can carry your food to the table or the couch.

  • Use them as a coaster for hot drinks!
