Tri-Grab / Potholder


We will always enjoy cooking delicious meals for our beloved ones, so we are always eager to bring the food to the dining table right away after finishing cooking. But sometimes we brought the pot to the table just to find out that we forgot to place the potholder in position beforehand. So we would have to take the heavy pot back to the kitchen, place the potholder in position, and take the pot out again, which tasted both our time and strength. Therefore, we started looking for a kind of “magic” that could make the potholder follow the pot itself!
