I don't have an oven-mitt to pick up my kettle after the water is boiled, so I thought I would try to insulate the handle with Sugru and see how it turns out. Its gotta be better than the goofy knitted coaster I was previously using!
First step was to simply decide what colour to use. Given that I had a nice range available to me I decided to go with a nice bright yellow for this. Having learned how to smooth out the Sugru using inside of the package it came in (since it didn't stick to it really), this looked pretty reasonable but definitely not perfect :)
