It's a pot holder
Reviewed by Joshua P. - April 22, 2018

Likes: Bigger than it looks like in the picture.

Dislikes: Would be cool to have a way of attaching it to my cook-pot handle. Like a keyring or clip. Easy to lose this if not always put back in the same place.

Reviewed by Leonard M. - November 21, 2016

Likes: It is very compact and light. Has a magnet to stick to your pot lid for easy access. Fits easily in your cook kit.

Dislikes: May be a bit small for someone with big fingers

Reviewed by Michael K. - May 18, 2014

Likes: Light and a good insulator.

Dislikes: It was just too small for me. I don't have big fingers and it was really difficult for me to use it.

Reviewed by Mike B. - October 22, 2013

Likes: I didn't find this item as useful as some of the other reviewers. I use a Titanium pot and lid, so the magnetic feature was of no use. I had to get right up to the pot to grab the rim which is a little dicey when the alcohol stove is still burning.

Dislikes: I actually purchased the Open Country Clamp Handle (Item #OPC401) and found this to be a bit more versatile. Read the reviews on this item for more information.

Reviewed by Inside Edge Member - January 24, 2013

Likes: The GSI Microgripper is brilliant! I first used my friends Microgripper last spring while in the Linville gorge and I knew I had to have one. I was finally able to locate one at Backcountry Edge. The Microgripper makes it quick and easy to grab my pot of boiling water and pour a cup-o-joe without burning my fingers. The integrated magnet allows it stick to the lid of my cook pot. (I use it as a "knob" for the lid.) The M.gripper is very useful and i would highly recommend it highly!

Dislikes: The Microgripper must be laid on a clean place to prevent debris from getting into your pot.

Reviewed by Patricia L. - September 28, 2012

Likes: Perfect little grippers to protect fingers when picking up lightweight hot edges. Will use camping and for microwave at home. Good quality, fit nicely on my large-for-a-woman fingers. Ridges on gripping surfaces great to prevent slipping.

Dislikes: I don't see anything wrong with this product.

Reviewed by Daniel P. - July 31, 2012

Likes: Handy to store in small cook pot or mug.

Dislikes: A little too small for my fingers

Reviewed by Anonymous Backcountry Edge Customer - June 6, 2012

Likes: Lightweight.

Dislikes: Not bad. But, when this is used, be careful for your finger to touch the pan or pot surface because of the tiny lip.

light weight

Dislikes: nothing
