1. Holes In Pot Handles
You’ve likely noticed that cooking pots’ handles feature a slim, oval-shaped hole at one end. Many assume that manufacturers include the holes so owners can hand the pots, storing them easily when not in use. However, many people find it difficult to hang them as the irregular shape of the hole in the handle doesn’t fit in most hooks.
There’s a good reason for that: the holes are not for hanging. They are actually designed to hold the handle of stirring spoons! That way, the spoon end hangs over the pot and minimizes the mess. Now, when you’re cooking pasta, you won’t make a mess, saving you time afterward and money on cleaning supplies!
