I also keep a pot holder next to or over part of a pan/pot that I've removed from the oven to keep me safe while dishing out. Too many times, I'd go to remove a serving and put my hand on the hot metal trying to hold it steady.

I've been screwing up a lot lately, forgetting to turn burners off. Scary. I try to remember to double check before I leave the room, but occasionally am in too much of a hurry.

I keep one of these on my CI skillet and always put it on any pan handle that goes into the oven. Why? Because I don't want to burn myself AGAIN and feel really stupid for doing so.

I leave something on the pot as a warning, too, laying an oven mitt on top of the lid or over the handle. It's too easy to grab that tempting handle or lid that's not long out of the braising oven.

Wow, you really got a good grip on that handle before the "Ouch!" kicked in.

Ouch, Frank! Get better soon.

I've done it, too. The worst was when I stupidly grabbed the handle of a CI skillet that had been in the oven. Won't do that again.

Now I have a silicone sleeve that fits on my skillet handles.

As Addie said, "Once burned. Twice shy."

I have never even come close with grabbing a cast iron handle... those are always hot.

My nonstick hardly ever goes in the oven.. so the handle is always cool.

Excuse me while I kick myself for being an idiot... again.

I grabbed the handle of the pan... &@)*@#(&@_)*&&%@^#^&@(#& that hurt.

I can pronounce those words. Have used them myself on many occasion. And you spelled every one correctly.
