This set of adaptive cookware looks very useful! (I would not
recommend using their order form, as the page is not secure enough for
entering your credit card. (Always look for an ?https? in the
address/URL box before posting a credit card number. This site lacks
this security feature). This site has other helpful adaptive devices.
I called this merchant to see if they had the pots in stock now, but
got their voice mail and left a message. I?m assuming they might be
closed on weekends. Should you call, the Fax number on the site is not
their fax number, but the voice number!
This site also carries the Ergonomique set, and a secure ordering page!:
HealthCraft carries a set of easy grip handled cookware:
?Safety grip (open) handles on both sides of each pan. Not just one
long handle that you have to lug around the kitchen with dresses, pot
holders and aprons... but two handles on every single pan. So whether
you're left handed, right handed, both handed, or have a touch of
arthritis, they're safe and easy to hold, and you have a spoon rest on
every long handle.? (They are VERY expensive)
T-Fal Armaral Hard Enamel Cookware Sets
?1) It's amazing non-stick surface...I don't know if it's teflon or
whatever it is, but we've BURNED a few meals (hey, we're newlyweds!),
and the unsuccessful food experiments have just slid right out of it.
Seriously. We haven't had to scrub any of this cookware to clean it.
It's really amazing. Again, I didn't think I'd ever be recommending
cookware to people, but if you want to save yourself a lot of time
(and eventually a lot of money in replacement costs), buy this
2) It's lightweight--if you have a hard time moving pots and pans
around, or if you have arthritis or carpal tunnel setting in, these
are great for you. They're very sturdy, but very light. This would be
a consideration for my parents, so I'm including it here.
3) The handles are always cool to the touch--haven't burned myself
once (and believe me, that's a miracle by itself).?
The above set is available on Amazon.com (with a secure ordering site!)

?SMART, TOUGH & HANDSOME grillware is made with Armetale metal, a
unique food-safe alloy, the product will not rust, tarnish, crack,
chip, or dent. The product works hard on the grill and looks great
when serving food at the table. Use it to cook your entire meal on the
grill ~ perfect for those "slip-through-the-grate-foods" that you
usually cook inside. The grillware has a casual and comfortable look.
The unique design blends well with any decor. That's why this
grillware's ability to cook and serve in the same piece makes so much
This set has fairly wide handles:
?Take a look at Cuisinart's Everyday Stainless Line.
That's what I got, because I have tendinitis in both arms and lifting
heavy pots is difficult. These have a good heft, but not as heavy as
the more expensive stuff.
And cooking in them has been a dream. I also like the shape of the
handles better than most cookware, easier for me to hold.
They clean up easy too!?
Here is a nice pan with double handles:
?Their natural angles offer more comfortable handling, the integrated
thumb grooves provide better balance and manageability and the texture
bumps near handle's base even alert you when your fingers get a little
too close to the heat.?
You could replace existing handles and lid top handles with easier to use handles:
Meyer Circulon Cookware Sets
?The "circulon" rings ensure that the heat is conducted very evenly
across the base of the pans, even when using the very smallest ring,
avoiding the juggling act that I seemed to have to do before with
flimsier pans to match the pan to the ring. The weight was also a
pleasant surprise. Although in my late 20's, I have arthritis in my
hands, but I love to cook for large numbers of people, and would not
be able to handle very heavy pots - particularly the larger sizes, and
when straining vegetables etc.?
I have had this set for over 10 years, and am able to handle them
still. (I have bad arthritis in my hands and elbows too)
No pots and pans on this site, but they have numerous other useful
Easy grip sponges:
Easy grip utensils
I find Good Grips utensils very helpful, and they can be found at most
Good Grips also makes lightweight mixing bowls
I find that mixing bowls with this type of handle works best for me.
Target carries a nice line, which I can?t find online today, with a
gripper ring on the bottom, lightweight, and a nice ergonomic handle,
and good prices.:
Here?s a nice set:
There you go! Consider too, buying not a set of cookware, but a piece
here and there that best meets your criteria. You may be better off
purchasing individual pieces that have wide easy to grip handles.
As my own arthritis increases, I too shall make use of these products!
I do find that two handled pans are easiest, regardless of the weight.
I wish you and your family member the best.
