Those holes are there for a reason
Most of the pots nowadays come with handles that have a slim hole at the end, so we tend to think right away that it’s placed there to make it easier to hang and store them. Although this is one of its uses, it is definitely not the only one.
Then, if not to hang them, what other reason is it there for? The true purpose of the hole in the handle is for it to place those stirring spoons inside and prevent yourself from getting dirty while cooking. Imagine you just finished cooking something saucy and need to set down that messy cooking spoon somewhere… now you know where.
