Saucy Fetishists

Today I recieved a 20% off coupon for Bed Bath and Beyond and suddenly I had the urge for a 2 Quart copper-clad saucier.  I stumbled around the pan section looking for my Holy Grail piece and after 15 minutes of unsuccess a sales associated asked if she could help.  I explained what I was looking for and she directed me to this rubber-handled monstrosity.  I asked rhetorically if the rubber handle could go into the oven and she said yes because it was cool touch…  Wow.  Rubber fetishists should be alerted to their new flame-retardant status.
