Curtis Stone and his cast aluminum wonders
I have been reading the reviews for Curtis Stone’s latest pans and was really surprised that so many people didn’t notice that he never touched the handles without protection. If you are familiar with cast iron, you know the pan’s handles always get hot…they are a part of the pan and the heat radiates through the whole thing. I’ve used cast iron in the past and hated the ‘prepping’ of the pans, it was a complicated process and if you did it wrong you’re stuck with a mess (been there, done that) that’s why I stopped using them…that and the weight. Curtis gives you the best of both worlds and it’s a joy to cook in them. Go to Youtube and check the presentation videos from the day and you’ll see he never touched the handles while things cooked unless he used a cloth or his silicone trivets. Don’t give up on the pans because of the handles…just grab a pot holder and enjoy the experience of these awesome pans!
I agree with you padfoot14. I always use a hot pad when I’m handling a hot pan or pot handles. Curtis Stone cookware is no exception. I watched his presentation as well and he used his small trivets. I think they should either have been included with the multi pan or charge a small additional fee for them.
I did order the small trivets to use with them, but they were a bit stiff for me to use…maybe it’s just the ole arthritic hands-lol. I did find some soft square silicone hot pads at the Dollar Tree and they work very well and are easy to fold over the handles. He’ll be back on March 10th, I wonder if he’ll say anything about the handles then.
