Does the handles get hot of the Silampos cookware?
I havn't taken any notice, certainly they don't get hot to the extent that it is a problem. If you are using it properly you wouldn't touch the handles while it is cooking, and you would obviously use gloves to hold it to de pressure at the end of cooking.
