Shapes and Definitions

A long single handle is usually known as a stick handle. A short handle, such as that on a Dutch oven is usually called a side handle. Most skillets and fry pans have a stick handle, but for those that weigh more than 11 pounds when filled with water, the CMA recommends a second side handle, sometimes known as a helper handle.
