Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple, light, easy to use I've used my PanHandler on almost every trip I've been on in the backcountry (and frontcountry!). It is super light weight, very easy to grab and use with only one free hand and doesn't transfer heat from the boiling hot pan to my hand. I will always recommend the MSR brand quality and specifically the purchase of this tool. Simple, easy to clean and use, and long lasting. What more do you need?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more burns!! I always thought, "forget the extra weight, I can just grab the pot..." but I often ended up with a burn. THEN I went backpacking with a friend who had a pot-gripper. My mind was changed. I grabbed the PanHandler right after that trip last summer, I haven't burnt myself cooking in the wilderness since!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good product but needs improvement This product is good, however after 3-4 uses the ends that attach to the inside of the pot were morphed on one side. This lead to an insufficient grasp of the pot, leading to instability and troubles when trying to maneuver the pot. Therefore, the durability of the handle needs to be improved upon. For the record, I stored my panhandler in a safe environment throughout my travels along with my alpine 2 pot set.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inexpensive and Indispensable I received the Panhandler as a stocking stuffer gift for Christmas. One of the best gifts ever. My family camps frequently. Pots and pans handles can be a pain when trying to store. Quick fix- The Panhandler. I can now get rid of the handles. It is a wonderful tool. Lightweight, portable, inexpensive and indispensable. I am picking up a few for gifts and one to keep in my kitchen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little device This works perfectly for moving the cooking pots from a hot camp stove. I can pour water into my French press without burning myself or spilling .
