If you are looking for a practical and versatile casserole to easily cook all kind of recipes, surely cast aluminium pots and pans are the perfect choice. They have only one little problem: aluminium side handles burn. This small inconvenience can be easily solved by using mittens but, why aren’t they in the drawer we thought they were? Why can’t we find them when we need them the most? This won’t happen again if you start using casseroles with permanent attached silicone side handles. Castey has patented them and you won’t want to use any other one once you try them.
Castey permanent attached side silicone handles are perfectly designed to fit the aluminium cooking vessel which provide absolute secure grip to prevent accidental burns. To increase security, they also feature an exclusive double protection in the lower area, this with a protective rim that stops fingers to exceed the silicone handle edge. This is very useful and important, as most of accidental burns happen when fingers touch the lower edge of the cooking vessel.
Unless conventional side handles heat protectors, Castey patented permanent attached side silicone handles are not accessories, but completely integrated and part of the product itself. This makes them more practical and secure as they don’t need to be assembled every use, they never get lost and they are always ready to use. Moreover, you can also use them in the oven, as silicone is extremely resistant to high temperatures. And don’t worry, you don’t have to remove them to clean them, you can do it together with the casserole, both by hand or in the dishwasher.
How to use Castey permanent attached silicone side handles correctly
Our permanent attached silicone side handles are part of the product itself. Although you could remove them, we don’t recommend you do it because you could break them. If your main concern is keeping them clean, stop worrying about this: you can clean them together with the casserole, both by hand or in the dishwasher.
We have added a space to side handles to increase your protection, by preventing direct heat from reaching handles for a stay cool design. Anyway, you must control flame intensity when you cook in gas cooktops. It’s very important you don’t let the flame stand out from the base of the casserole. This would heat up silicone handles and even damage them.
You can use these casseroles in the oven. Silicone is extremely resistant to high temperatures and this product is oven safe up to 230°C / 450°F. If you do so, keep in mind silicone handles will heat up and burn, so you must protect your hands to take casseroles out of the oven.
