The plastic knob on my skillet lid broke off. So I thought, why not just turn a new one. It is made of cherry.

How funny! I had the exact same solution to the exact same problem on the exact same lid. Only difference is I used mesquite instead of cherry.

I too have several “favorite” pots and pans with broken knobs. Great solution!

Great idea! Wooden knobs are way better than plastic ones.

Have your say...
