Bottom Line
Pros
Cons

Potholders are the humble servants of the kitchen, and you don’t realize just how important they are until you can’t find them. If you cook or bake at all, you will find yourself in need of some relief from the heat of hot pans. You can choose from various styles, including the standard flat square that you hold folded around the pan or a mitt that you insert your hand into. While styles have stayed pretty consistent over the years, the material has been updated. You can still choose cotton fabric or woven materials, but now a popular option is silicone. This flexible plastic is highly heat resistant and easily cleanable with a simple rinse and wipe.
