Why the handle of frying pan is made of plastic


Wood and plastic are good conductor of heat making your hand feel less hotter than having a metal handle that can make heat transfer faster to your hand.




It is to avoid burns. We all know that plastic is an insulator and a poor conductor of heat. As you observe, the frying pan will feel blazing hot but the handle isn't. It is because it doesn't absorb the heat. You wouldn't want burns after cooking delicious food, right?

Do you know the answer?
