Are silicone handles durable?

Thanks so much for the replies. The sleeve is a great idea! I had never seen them and will buy them immediately for the pans I already have. Wish they had lid handle covers also. I guess it's back to looking at phenolic. Wonder if I can find any with clear lids? I really like those.

Are silicone handles durable?

Does anyone have pans with silicone handles? Is the silicone durable? Is it every sticky or uncomfortable? I prefer handles that I can pick up safely without mats and are thinking about a set that have silicone handles. Does anyone know if they are more or less durable than phenolic handles? I've had some of those for over forty years. They aren't pretty, but they are still usable. However, I've had silicone spatulas that don't last, so I'm worried.

What cookware is stainless, not really heavy and has handles that won't burn me

You know, I did a search trying to read old questions like this because that's what I always do. Actually my Google search brought me to this site. However searching here didn't help, because only one post came up that was vaguely close to this question. Don't know if I used wrong search words, but searching didn't help me find the old posts.

I have some Cuisinart Pro 3-ply that are too heavy and the long handles drive me crazy when storing. I have to use a hot mat when picking up the lids. I like best my very old Farberware. I want a new set that isn't as heavy as All-clad or Cuisinart Pro, doesn't have handles long enough to fight each other, and handles that are safe to pick up when cooking. And yes, I know that might mean plastic handles. Help!!!
