DCB Question: Is it just me...

I have only had my DBC for about 2 weeks and I love it! However, taking it out of the microwave often scares me. I am the only one that thinks they could improve it by just making a slight handle on each end? They would not need much, even 1/2 inch would help. My microwave is over my stove and taking it out while wearing hot mits is difficult. I am wondering if it would be worth sending an email to HO suggesting that modification.

Yep, I agree, as long as it will fit in the microwave!

I think we would feel more assurance if they made a glove using the same material as the Hot Pad/Trivet. That's just my thought.

At home, I use gloves that came with my old George Foreman Rotisserie Oven.

I use one of the striped towels to remove from the micro. Mine is also above the stove and removing it w/gloves or hot pads (either silicone or cloth) really makes me nervous. Usually I have the towel folded longways about 4 times & then it either wraps around or over the lid.

I do wish it had handles as well. Other than that I LOVE mine!

The lid is what I have a hard time with - just not quite enough for a good grip

yes, I cringe every time I take it out of a microwave. I LOVE the DCB but wish the handles were deeper - not thick but an indented area under each handle for a few fingers.

We used to have silicone oven mitts when I first started 5 years ago.

I get a little nervous with the handle at the top, too. Just sometimes doesn't seem large enough to get a good grip on it, especially when I have the gloves on.

Try taking the lid out first. That makes it much easier to remove the base when you are in a higher microwave. :)

I always stick my hands on the sides of the pot just below the lip (while the DCB is perpendicular to my body) using either silicone oven mitts or regular oven pads. The lip keeps it from slipping out of my hands and I don't worry about losing my grip like I would if I carried it by that little lip.

I like to use the micro fiber towel to remove my DCB from the microwave and to remove the lid.
I do like our oven mitts but I have small hands and I always feel like I am about to drop whatever I pick up with them. So, I do not use them very often...even had a friend to shrink them and they are still too big. I use the oven pad quite a bit though.
We did have the silicone oven mitts and I burned myself using those so those have been banned from my kitchen.
