The No.4 Leather Handle Cover keeps your hand protected when moving your cast iron around the kitchen. Beyond function, it's a well-designed object that, like cast iron, is meant to wear in beautifully and improve with time and use.
The No.4 Field Skillet, our smallest skillet, is the kind of pan that seldom leaves the stovetop. For many, it's an every-morning egg pan, and it can get pretty hot frying up breakfast. The No.4 also makes a great skillet for single-servings and sides; cover up before dishing out mac and cheese tableside!
Sized to fit the No.4 Field Skillet, the No.4 Leather Handle Cover measures in 5" in length, covering the full handle, with a snug 1 ½" width.
Vegetable-tanning is a process by which tannins, naturally-occurring compounds found in vegetables and other plant matter, are used to develop the precise coloring, texture and handfeel of leather goods.
It's a natural, even ancient, technique favored for its minimal environmental impact (compared to chemical-intensive processes used for furniture and commodity goods), durability, and vegetable-tanned leather's distinct propensity for developing a rich patina with years of wear.
Vegetable-tanned leather, sourced, tanned, cut, and stitched in the USA.
Leather Handle Covers are intended for stovetop and tableside use only. Do not use in the oven.
As you continue to use your leather handle cover, the leather will become more supple, and adjust to the fit of your hand.
If leather becomes dry, apply food-safe leather conditioner or coconut oil to re-moisturize and restore luster.
