why are handles of utensils made of wood or plastic

so that when we cook something in utensils or if they are having hot food inside, it is easy for us to handle it.

utensils are mainly made up of metals that are good conductor of heat and if the handles are also made up of metals they will also absorb heat and when we pick up a utensil by its handle, it can hurt us or we might have burns. So handles of utensild are made up of wood or plastic

Cooking utensils have wood or plastic handles primarily to prevent the cook from burning his/her hands. Wood and plastic conduct heat much less than metal.Wood or plastic doesn 't transfer heat as metal does. If the handles were metal, it makes it harder to pick up the pan.
