Having just read the thread about stoves and MTB'S comment about the Boatman stove door handle getting too hot I have a solution to make any hot handle cool to handle whether it be a stove door handle, kettle handle, poker handle, even steam or hot water gate valve hand wheels.
All you need is glue and a ball of ordinary thin white string.
Paint the handle to be transformed into a cool handle by first painting it with slow drying glue, epoxy is best and then similar to whipping a rope's end, but no need to use the same technique as glue will hold the string in place much better on irregular and weird shaped handles. So, wind on a few turns of string and to hold them in place a turn or two of sticky tape, then carry on winding the string tightly and closely around and around the handle until it's covered completely and finish off the end with a bit more sticky tape to hold the string in place until the glue cures. Remove sticky tapes and voila a cool handle and no more burnt fingers.
