Product Information

After years of cast iron cooking with a cumbersome oven mitt, we decided to create something better. We wanted a handle cover that we could easily slide on and off with one hand and easily fit around handles of numerous shapes and sizes. Most importantly though, we wanted a handle cover that could be used with both pot and pan handles.

So, we created our Cast Iron Handle Guards. The unique yet simple design has a folded open-end construction that allows the guards to easily slip on and off. It also allows the guards to fit around handles of most shapes and sizes, and best of all, they can be used with both pot and pan handles.

First time purchase of a cast iron skillet called for handle guards. Straight to the point: these guards are simple in design yet elegant in appearance -- a great complement to the meals that are made. Most important, and I can't stress this enough, they're quality AMERICAN sourced and made products.

I love so much about these handle guards! They fit our cast iron handles perfectly, stay in place, simple design, and made in America! They arrived very quickly and I am happy every time I use them.

2 cast iron skillet leather handle covers with embossed personalization

I bought 2 cast iron skillet leather handle covers that came personalized with 3 letters. These were a gift for my fiancé and I had his initials embossed on the leather. He really loves them and the look of them. They also fit a small and large skillet handle perfectly and they don't slide off with ease. They have a great fit for the handle. Beautiful leather and clean embossing. I couldn't be happier with the product.

Leather Handle Holder

I got this product almost a year ago and have really enjoyed these holders! They do exactly what they are supposed to do and almost no heat can be felt through them. They have held up extremely well and are not showing any signs of wear and tear. I would highly recommend these

Cast Iron Handle Guards (Set of 2)

Overall pleased with the quality of these handle guards. Probably a little high on the price side, but they come with the customization option included. They start out snug so depending on the cast iron you use, the handle may not slide smoothly into the grip, but heat has made them a little more pliable and fit great after a few uses. Grabbing the short handle with the fold can be a bit scary as there isn't anything to protect your fingers from touching the cast iron but is definitely something you can get used to. We'll see what the longivevity is like, but based on the feel I have no qualms about it.
