These handles on these pans look intriguing. Possibly ergonomic?
This is a photo from the podcast 10 minutes to table with Xanthe Clay (Telegraph TV) - which I have been quite enjoying. I am interested in the handles of the pans. I have never seen them before but they intrigue me. Has anybody seen them around? They look to me like they could be ergonomic, but since I have never seen them before, maybe not? Otherwise - why would they not have taken off, given that they should be easier to use. What are your thoughts?
I am guessing that they are like Dexter DuoGlide knives -- in the sense that these handles will require less force to hold (thus more comfortable for weaker waists), but less maneuverable and therefore slow.
The handle is in 45 degree-ish to the pan and is placed closer to the pan. This design makes the user use less force to hold -- think of it more like holding a cup.
There is less torque on your handle.
However, the design probably will make it more difficult if you want to toss and flip the foods in your pans.
