Hot plate setter
So does anyone have any advice on taking out a hot plate setter. Let's say I was cooking both a pork loin and potatoes and wanted to take and throw them on direct to finish them off and want to take the plate setter off to do that.
Well I would think gloves would be the answer. Try the Orca gloves or welders gloves. You have to be quick even with those.
Ya I have welding gloves. But man still burt my finger.
I use welders gloves. They work for a short time so you better have a place picked out to put it.
Welders gloves and move very fast to an area already cleared out.
Even then the welder gloves heat up fast. I found wearing pair of "ove gloves" AND using the welding gloves like pot holders works great.
I get a hold of the placesetter using my tongs and tilt up until I can grab a hold of it. I have a SS steel bowl that I turn upside down and I park the hot placesetter on that to cool. Needless to say I wear a glove when i handle the placesetter.

This subject comes up regularly, and the one thing that always is emphasized is "have a place decided on ahead of time to put down the hot plate setter!"

New product idea! Hot Plate Setter Mover. Some one should be able to design something like a 3-pronged clamp that we could use instead of burning our fingers... :laugh:
Absolutely true - know where you're going to put it down!
Silicone grabbies work for me, oven gloves are a bit cumbersome to grab it with. Fortunately the platesetter cooks aren't usually the hot ones!
I agree! You need somewhere to set it down QUICK.
5 feet away is pushing it. Ask me how I know. :(

This is what several of us are buying for that issue.

Hi Chris - was about to make the same comment...Ditto
so did the gloves work well then? no one really said in that last post. i maybe will get some of these but wold like to know how they worked
The original OV glove is the answer. I do it all the time with these. I use them for my wood stove, BGE, oven, anything hot. They give you quite a while before they start getting your fingers hot. There about $15 each, but well worth it. I have used the crap out of mine, and still good.
I use the plate setter lifter for my large egg...........got it from Dicksonbbq .....works like a charm.
I made this to lift mine with and then it hangs under my table on a hook.
