Frank, did you drop the pan or lift it to the top of the stove before you let go?
My pan was only at 350, but I wasn't going to lose those baked apples I made to go with the breaded pork chops. At least as a newlywed I found out that Himself was a good nurse.
I have a nice Cuisinart food processor that came out of the box for cleaning. One look at those blades and she got packed up again. I really need to be brave and try using it.
I don't burn myself much anymore because my fingers are now asbestos after all these decades of cooking. My new issue is dropping things. Did you know that sharp knives fall point-down? I now wear shoes when working with sharp implements. Heavy ones, too, like CI pots and pans. But I'm thinking my next pair of footwear should be steel-toed boots...
