No more burns from hot lids

Materials: RATIONELL VARIERA Pot lid organizer (2x for $4.99), hacksaw, sandpaper

Description: Once bought this thing called RATIONELL VARIERA Pot lid organizer

It was hanging around the stove in the kitchen for some time. One moment I tried to use it as a temporary holder for hot lids during cooking. It was much more convenient to have this instead of placing lids directly on kitchen table.

As lid is placed horizontally on the holder there is no more dipping from the lid. And what is most important there is no bare hand contact with hot part of the lid as one keeps holding it by the handle all time.

For efficiency I cut one into two to use them on both sides of the stove.

    Great idea. Would be nicer if the thing could be disassembled without sawing.

    Good idea! I have one of those but I’m not using it for anything at the moment. Have to test this one.
