Beyond that, as pointed out in other negative reviews, it's flimsy and thin. A folded dish towel offers more protection.
#1. Silcone handle covers are meant to be used light a form fitted oven mitt. NOT a permanent piece of the handle. Slide it on, move the pan, slide it off. If you leave it ON the pan especially in the oven, it WILL get hot, and may likely melt a bit. Just don't do that.
#2. Silicone handle covers REDUCE heat transfer from the CI handle, they do NOT eliminate it. You may still want to wrap the handle a bit with a cloth to further reduce the heat transfer.
Now having said that, I have a 10.5" Outdoor Gourmet cast iron skillet I bought for camp cooking when I was single that my wife has absconded for the house... The handle is slightly different shape and size from the Lodge castings, so fit was a concern. And as expected, this cover is a bit loose on the handle, but does grip well, and he ribbed inside allows for heat to move away from the hand fairly efficiently.
When used on the house stove, and / or camp stove, the cover stays cool while cooking even when left on. However do NOT use the handle while cooking in the oven or directly over the camp fire, remove and place back on as needed in those circumstances.
Overall this replaced a Lodge cover that failed after years of use, and I can honestly say, this appears to be of roughly the same quality and usability of the Lodge unit. Just use it correctly and you'll be fine.
