Thinking of replacing my disk based stainless pans (Cuisinart). The Vollrath Tribute line has, mostly, silicone covered handles. I would prefer metal handles and to just use a bar towel or a slip on insulated cover. Can anyone tell me what kind of handle is under the silicone cover? If I were to buy a silicone handled Tribute sauce pan, could I simply remove the silicone cover and would the handle be acceptable? Would it look like the few metal handled Tribute fry pans in the line or would it be different? Thanks!
