Sometimes problems pop up in the most unexpected places. What happens when the steamer has been working away for a while? The chrome knob becomes too hot to handle. It isn't exactly a major issue - more on the level of a small irritation as you then have to go hunting for a tea towel or an oven glove.The solution is right at hand! "A handy wee doofer". Yes, that's the official name of this small padded "thing". It hooks conveniently onto a cupboard door just hanging around waiting for such an event as this! It was a Christmas present a while ago and has become one of the most useful objects in the kitchen.
Lifting hot lids is no longer a problem! So I'm off to make some champ for tonight's tea (dinner/supper). Wouldn't it be great if there were a simple solution to all of life's little problems?
