Many people might have either a broken arm or even a missing one. This $2 assistive pan holder can help people who are disable and love to cook. Now idea came to me when my step mother broke her arm and had to be in a cast for a very long time. One of her favorite thing to do is cooking and it was really hard for her to do it due to she was not able to hold the pans when cooking and sometimes even spilled hot soup over herself. When went to the store we saw a similar PAN HOLDER for more than $20, so I decided to make an economic one.

    Do you still use this, even though your mother has (hopefully) healed from her injury by now?

    Great idea and Instructable. I used this idea to support a cheap and slightly uneven pan instead of holding it the entire time. Thanks!

    Also handy for compulsive multi-taskers. I'm often trying to stir a pan with one hand while doing something else with the other. If I've got a pan that won't hold still it drives me batty.
