    Default Fix frying pan's broken off handle

    Hi Guys,

    One of our frying pan's handle broken off. Any thoughts as to what would be the best way of "fixing" the handle to it again? I was thinking of using Pratley Steel, but the actual surface that "sticks" to the pan is rather small.

    Maybe I should make a whole new handle...

    Self tapping screw from inside the pan into the handle. Add epoxy or Pratley Putty to finish it off.

    Don't forget to add a washer on the inside of the pan to have wider surface contact. The self tapper will just make contact on a small surface!

    Steenvas - you find anything this stuff can not fix, I'll eat my hat (the one I don't have)

    Far better that Pratley Steel.

    It's oven and dishwasher safe

    As a temporarily measure I would maybe drill a hole, insert 50mm bolt from inside, use lock nut or nut and spring washer and use vice grip pliers as new handle.

    When considering fixing cookware unintended consequences when a fix fails with boiling hot content is not negotiable. Skin grafts are not only very painful but also hellish expensive.

    I hate to think that such content may land in a little one's face.

    combine these two solutions.

    flatten the mating surface of the handle stub
    source an appropriate countersink machine screw
    drill through the pan's wall, countersink the inside surface
    drill and tap the handle for the machine screw thread
    use Locktite for the thread and maybe metal epoxy for the external mating surfaces and join two items

    Easier to drop the pan into File #13 and buy a new one...........

    This saucepan gets used almost daily on, currently on a gas stove. It gets washed in a dishwasher.The handle, albeit not a very neat job, was fixed with steenvas many moons ago. We could not get the pin and spring back in the handle that is suppose to hold handle and pot together. Now it's only the steenvas that holds it and I'm willing to bet that this handle WILL NEVER BREAK OFF
