Stainless Steel/Titanium Pot-Handle Insulation on 08/06/2009 08:27:01 MDT Print View

Hi.

I was wondering if anyone has any tips about how to best insulate those collapseable handles you find on the side of titanium or stainless steel mugs.

I'm ditching my cookset and will just be using my 16oz mug to boil water. But the handles get too hot, and I don't want to bring a pot-holder (as it defeats the purpose).

Any ideas?

Thanks.

Tim.

remove the handles and slide silicone tubing (like used with aquariums) over the handles. Works great.
