16 little-known uses of wine bottle stoppers
15. A handful
When we put a pot, pan or sauté pan with a lid on the fire and the lid is made of metal, it is very difficult to lift or remove it without getting burned.
No need for gloves to do the job. Just slip a cork stopper just under the handle of the lid, as in the photo, then you could do all the possible manipulations without risking to burn yourself because the stopper will not heat up unlike the metal of the lid. It’s perfect when you’ve forgotten or put down your oven mitts.
