Whether your original lid shattered or was misplaced, or the pan didn't come with one, this lid does very nicely as a substitute. I've found that it seals quite well, actually, allowing me to steam things like vegetables on a lower heat while working on another dish. I had a universal lid already, but it didn't seal very well at all, and it was solid metal. The fact that this is glass means you can keep an eye on the dish's progress without having to remove the lid. That's very helpful.
Boyfriend tested GF approved. My GF was planning to be a chef (she went into something more lucrative) and has been into french cooking since she was a kid. I bought this mostly for a 12 inch pan that didn't come with a lid. It worked on every pan I've put it on. The clear glass means you can see whats happening in the pot and the handle doesn't get too hot.
This is a great replacement lid if you lost or damaged a lid or if you purchased a pot/pan that did not come with a lid. The look of the lid is, admittedly, a bit off with those weird ridges at the outer edges of the lid, but this is so that it can fit pots and pains of multiple sizes, so a function over form product, if you will. There is a nozzle for steam to escape, which is standard for most lids. And, so far, the handle is firmly attached to the lid and the handle is not the type that allows water to get trapped in weird areas, so this lid appears to be built to last.
Very utilitarian, weeks into ownership, we have found this is a grabs and cook lid. Works with the majority of the cookware we own
I don’t have a lot of space so having one lid for multiple sized pots&pansnis the perfect solution for me.
This cover is an excellent idea . . Will buy more in future
PERFECT solution to having peace of mind in knowing our utensils are ready for use
Amazed to see this product , That lid covers all of my cooking utensils very smoothly
