Medium Pan Handle (details)
Material: Bakelite, stainless steel, aluminum
Includes: One handle + hardware set
Measurements: 5.1 in (130 mm) long overall, 4.3 in (110 mm) long Bakelite
Fits: Newer style 1 1/2 quart and 2 quart sauce pans and handled steamer baskets, 7-inch and 7 1/4 inch skillets, and possibly others. These fit Revere Ware cookware with handles that have one screw through the metal part of the handle.
Note that all sizes of this type of handle (small, medium, large, and x-large) have the same size metal spline at the end, so they will fit any pot that accepts this type of handle, although a large handle on a very small pot might be visually unappealing and unsafe due to weight imbalance. Please use the measurements above to insure you choose a proper size.
The screw in the hardware set is Phillips head, not slotted like some of the original Revere Ware screw sets were (most of these handles were riveted, not screwed on). Because the original slot head screws strip very easily, we consider this an improvement.
Bakelite is a great heat resistant material, but it can be a bit brittle.
It is generally not a good idea to put Bakelite parts in the oven; it can make them dull or in some cases crack. We do not offer our Bakelite parts as oven-safe.
It is generally not a good idea to put Bakelite parts in the dishwasher; the soap will eventually dull and dry out the surface of the Bakelite. We do not offer our Bakelite parts as dishwasher-safe.
The only slightly difficult part about replacing these handles is removing the rivet holding the old handles on. Use a 5/32" drill to remove the old rivet.
