    Beautiful forms, apple like, plump with tiny stems, which gets to the handles, all of which hardly work for a hand of any size. Looks before function. Too bad.

      Why would anyone need bigger handles to lift the tiny lids? Just use your opposable thumb and two adjacent fingers to grip the handle vertically. It has nothing to do with hand size.
