A handle of a frying pan is not just a stick. It's an elongation of our hand which makes us possible to take and control an extremely hot object. We can consider it as a plier that is an integral part of our hands during cooking and only connects to the pan when we are making a movement with it. You can cook more comfortable and safe as there are no protruding sticks while the pans are sizzling on the stove. A person with limited use of their hands could use two of these handles on one pan, thereby shifting the weight of the cooking pan to their forearms so they can rely on arm strength, rather than hand strength – e.g. people with arthritis.
