I'm so disappointed to discover that the fit of the handle holder is so loose. My pans are very heavy, and the silicone handle spins in my hand when I go to pick it up. Accident waiting to happen. Hi Elizabeth I am sorry to hear that your silicone handle holder is too large for your skillet. Did you know there are 2 sizes available in the silicone handle holders and you have purchased the large one from us, but you have not purchased your skillet form us so I do not know what size skillet you are using the silicone holder with? It may be the case that the size skillet you are using it with should have had the smaller silicone handle holder. I use mine at home all the time and never have this issue. Lodge Cookware Australia

Bought this handle holder for the 10.5" square grill pan. It does fit but a tighter fit would be better so there's no chance of the handle holder slipping off. When the pan heats up, it can still be a bit hot on the hands even with the handle holder on. Having said that, it still beats using big clumsy mitts to grip a heavy pan with a short handle. Also tried the handle holder on a smaller pan with a shorter, smaller handle. Fits well enough but obviously will need to grip pan handle carefully to avoid accidents. So all up, quite happy to have this handle holder as it's been useful
