I'm an Aussie and we call the metal grippers you take a pot/billy off heat with "Paddy's Fingers."
I had always thought this was a tongue-in-cheek dig at the Irish as only an Irishman/woman would be silly enough to pick the pot straight up off the fire (apologies to my Irish friends!), but my mother recently told me it was in reference to a local gear maker Paddy Pallin. Are they called this outside SE Australia?
What do YOU call them and where did you learn it?!?

... Ummm... People who don't inhale?

"the little thingee to get the pot off the stove?"

You're dangerous.
I was under the impression that the "tripping" we are talking about around here involves physical activity...? 😉

It is semantics, but not pot "holders," pot "grippers."

aka "Boonerelli"
