In Praise of the Humble Potholder
Dear Favorite Potholders,
You’re so great! You’re always there when we need you. You so generously protect our fingers from harm. You wear your burns and stains without complaint. You willingly step in as trivets when needed. Is there anything you can’t do, really?
This is one essential kitchen tool that we tend to overlook. Whether you use a handy kitchen towel or a grinning pumpkin mitt like ours, we certainly all reach for something when it comes time to handle our hot pans and dishes!
What about you? Do you have a favorite potholder in your kitchen?
