These nonstick pots and pans protectors are the easiest ways to keep your priced possessions good as new for a long time. Just measure every pan and sew either by hand or sewing machine. It took me an hour for a set of three and next time I have a birthday or wedding or a housewarming party, I'll have a cool gift.

Thank you for taking the guess work out of this project. Now I can make a protector for every pot in the house and not have to worry about stacking them again. Now if I could just get my husband to use them when he puts the dishes away.

Oh! I am so glad I saw these. I am in desperate need of these for my pans.

In the past, I used to hang my pots and pans, but no longer have the room to,do that in my current place. So the pans are stored upside down with the smaller ones under the larger ones but they still get banged up. This is a great solution. I also,was thinking just a single layer or a towel between the, would work, but I can see where over time they would wear out, so the batting is very functional. Could also,double as a trivet. Great idea!

I have been currently searching for a new set of pots and pans and the price tags can be pretty expensive. Before I make my final decisions, I will most definitely make a few of these nonstick pan protectors to help protect my investment. Simple to make also, thank you.

These pan protectors are a great way to use up larger pieces of scrap fabric...and these do wonders for cutting down noise in Campers and RV's and plain old car trips!! For our RV, I just sewed the "sandwich" of fabric and batting, then pinked the edges. The whole process was quick and easy..

Just what I was looking for. Pan Protectors. When kitchen space is at a premium, stacking pans is a must. Having a cushion between each is perfect for storage. Better than paper toweling which bunches up after a time and even better than potholders as these protectors provide cover for pan edges. Pretty too.

Non-stick Pan Protectors are really useful, and a good idea. I want to protect my investment so I was happy to find this project here. I have to say that these look just like large pot holders though. I was expecting something more complex and round to make. These are definitely easier to make than I would have thought. Plus, I never would have considered adding batting, but it makes sense now. The batting will protect better. I guess I was thinking of the ones I have seen sold in stores that are so over priced and consist of just one piece of fabric! I definitely take back what I said as these ones seem to be much better. Thank you for sharing.
