I was cooking dinner lat night (Dijon and Herb Chicken), and I put the pan in the oven, to cook. Took the pan out of the oven, and put it down. Not too much later, I went to take the chicken out of the pan, and grabbed the HOT handle with my bare hand. Thankfully, I didn't toss the chicken all over the kitchen, but I did a nice job on my hand. It's much better now, and dinner was really good, but I spent most of the night with my hand around a glass filled with ice.
