Helpful Hints from joeeze: Wine corks to pick up a hot pot lid


Persian food master Najmieh Batmanglij "stuffs wine corks under the handles of pot lids that convey heat. She picks up the lid by holding the edges of the cork."

When saw this hack in the Washington Post I immediately submitted it to Cook's Illustrated: I was sure they'd feature it in their section featuring tips from readers, each of which when published won the submitter a year's subscription.

I was wrong.

Joe, Remember those triangle Japanese pot holders you posted some years ago? They work well for picking up hot metal pot lids.
