Normally, the replacement handles for pots and pans are designed in stainless steel casting. The main reason pots and pans have stainless steel handles is that stainless steel handles offer better corrosion resistance and higher heat resistance. This means you can easily put your pots and pans in the oven for baking if they have stainless steel handles.
You don’t have to worry about melting the handles or damaging them as stainless steel is strong enough to handle the heat.
Another advantage of having stainless steel replacement handles on pots and pans is their longevity. Since these replacement handles are made of stainless steel, they are strong and sturdy and have a longer working life compared to plastic or wooden handles. Furthermore, stainless steel handles also look more aesthetically pleasing on pots and pans as they are shiny.
