Weber potholders

Discussion in 'Charcoal Smokers' started by bobh127, Mar 11, 2011.

  1. Several years ago I purchased a pair of heavy potholders made by or sold by Weber, These could be used either as a standard potholder, plus they also had a place you could insert your hand and use them like an oven mitt. I've been looking on the web for these as I need to replace mine. Can't find them at all. A description. They are about 7-8 inches square, thick cloth. color is black and red, with a res depiction of the weber kettle on both sides. Anyone know where I could get a new pair?

    An obvious spot would be to check the Weber web site. I assume you must have already looked there right?

    If your talking about a pot holder that is double thickness & has a slit down the middle so your fingers go in one end & your thumb goes in the other, but they are the size of a regular pot holder. My wife makes them. Is this what you are looking for?

  4. Yeah Ross, I looked there, and on EBAY, all to no avail. I was hoping someone might know of an after market source. These potholders a  really handy, and heavy duty as well. I'll keep my fingers crossed. Thanks.  BTW, do you still live in West Fargo. I think I remarked to you once that I used to live there on 8th Ave west, but that was a LONG time ago. Bought the house in the fall of 1975 and sold it in May 1978.

    Yep I still live in WFGO. Getting ready for another flood coming up.  Did you take a look at Al's picture on this thread? Is that the kind you are looking for?

  6. Al,

    These are different than the Weber potholders, but they look like a really good design. If they are thick enough to take pots/skillets out of an oven, or items off my Kooker running at say 400 degrees, then I might well be interested. I am new to the forum, so am not real sure about doing business here, but you can pm me with prices. Thanks.

    Bob,

    They will handle pots & pans right out of the oven, they are great for grabbing a dish out of the microwave, and they will work for something really hot. She has never sold any of them, she just makes them for us & gives them away for presents.
     
  8. Oh, sorry Al, <blush> Any idea where she got the idea?
