Answer :

This is because of the fact that metals are a good conductor of heat so if the handle is made up of metal than heat will flow from the base of the cooking pan to the handle which can burn our hands. For this reason, we have handles made up of plastic as it is an insulator.



As shown in the picture, if the handle is made of metal/conducting substance, then heat will get transferred into your body & our hand will be burnt.
