That's a great little item you created. I'm about as strong as I ever was (lol) but pots, pans and bowls have doubled or trippled in weight over the past few years. I think this goes on my "to make" list.
Not if you have your hand on the handle. It's meant to the support the weight while you empty it out, not balance.Just a thought... Balancing a heavy larger sized pan on the stand in its vertical (upright) position makes me think it looks kind of tippy. No??
I'm thinking that if I tried one, no matter how careful I was, sooner or later the pot would spill. My method is, have the pot on a flat surface, then use a ladle to dip the contents out.Just a thought...

Thanks. I played around with all the bowls and pans we have in our kitchen (and we have a lot). The two heights, approx 3.5" and 5.25", seemed to cover the range. I'm always up to revisiting a design though.You're onto something with this idea. Wrist has a tendency to get weaker with age and this design can certainly aid with that. If you want just a bit more versatile make one of the vertical (higher positioning) bases wider which would give you 3 different heights instead of two. Just keep your center where it is now. Actually you could make that off centre and have 4 different heights. Just thinking out loud. Really like the concept Phil.
Then you definitely shouldn't use one.I'm thinking that if I tried one, no matter how careful I was, sooner or later the pot would spill. My method is, have the pot on a flat surface, then use a ladle to dip the contents out.
It's actually surprisingly stable. That's why I showed the pan balancing. Not at all tippy. Also, the base size is a trade-off - it needs to be stable but also able to get close to the "target" bowl or what ever. I'm sure it could be tweaked a bit more. Agreed about the finish point! I've already had to clean it.Tippy? Make the base legs a little wider. Finish with something easily cleaned and a couple of layers thick because something is probably going to drip onto it, at least in my kitchen it would.
I think you could also place smaller pans on top of it, or a featured item or centerpiece at a family gathering. I like it.
LOL. Don't tell my wife!Just eat out of the pan. I like the idea. Get it patented and made from a synthetic material.
Kids are getting stronger these days. Used to take two adults to carry $20 worth of groceries. Now a 9 year old can do it.
Definitely. My solution is. Keep It Simple Stupid. So, first I'll get #1, then build #2, and then do it as in #3. Ta da.Then you definitely shouldn't use one.
Yeah, and probably bypass any profits as they will steal the design. But, someone else is going to have to do it because I'm not into this to make money.Have it made in China and bypass the patent process.
