#898: Potstops

It’s a source of great irritation that the gas stove on which I cook has an iron framework intended to hold the pots above the nozzles. This gets all too easily snagged on everything (eg passing tea towels) so that hot pots regularly teeter -it’s anything but safe.

Today’s invention is a two-part fitting which can be attached to a wide range of pots and pans. One half consists of an adjustable steel strap which holds a bayonet fitting onto the base of the pan.


The other end clips a bayonet fitting to the gas flame outlet. This holds the pot at the correct level above the heat and allows each item to be attached or detached by rotating the handle through say 60 deg, but prevents anything from knocking the hot containers accidentally off the stove.
