Kuhn Rikon Smart Lid with Auto Release Valve
This is working out very well for me, fits all my pans and skillets that did not come with lids.
Just ok purchase
Bought this lid for my motorhome kind of squishy, not like my metal ones bought from QVC years ago. Kept it anyway for spillovers and such.
This lid does everything it says it does and more! What a great way to keep moisture in your food but be able to brown at the same time, also helps with the mess on the stove. It worked wonderful on peppers & onions that I was browning & not burning. Can't wait to use it on many more items. I used it on a 12" frying pan and it fit fine. Do not hesitate to purchase.

This has to be my favorite purchase. It fits everything in my kitchen, including my cast iron skillet which has never had a top. I have used it three times since I received it last week. It is lightweight, you can see what is cooking, and it cleans easily. Love it!!!
It's okay so far
I purchased to go on a particular large pot that i bought on sale without a lid, but b/c of the pots handles, it cannot fit snugly, so kind of defeats my original purchase. But I will keep to have a backup lid for some skillets in my cupboard. Color is great, matches a lot in my kitchen.
Doesn't work on all pans
This lid did not work with my pans! It did not sit flat because My pans have raised handles! Returned!
I love this cover. It fits on my cast iron pan and Dutch oven perfectly, as well as my smaller frying pans. It works great at preventing grease spattering, and does not require a mitt when removing from the stove. Because it contains the heat in the pan while cooking, the food cooks faster than I expected but does not dry out what is being cooked. I also love that I can put it in the dishwasher. This is a terrific item. It's as good as the Kuhn Rikon pot steam cover I previously purchased from QVC ages ago.
I purchased the red since my small appliances are empire red. The color is not a true red because it does have a pinkish hue, but it is still a very nice color.
NEEDS TO FIT SMALLER POTS ALSO. TOO BIG
Big disappointment I purchased to replace an old Cooks Essential lid that fit all size pots. This lid takes up too much space on stove although I have a 5 burner stove. Most of my Cooks Essential lids have broken. I loved the innovative lids that allowed steam to escape they were great for those cooks who enjoyed the art of cooking. Cooks Essential no longer offers those lids nor the replacements they send have that feature. So I was glad to have another product with similar traits. ONLY THIS LID DOES NOT FIT REGULAR SIZE SAUCE PANS as the Cooks Essential Lid did. So if there is a smaller lid now you have the oversized lid to try to store.

I inherited my mom & dad's pots & pans. The one thing I didn't like was you could not see what was happening on the inside. I love that it fits a skillet or a pot. I like the steam top so that this a multiple use kitchen tool.
JUST THE RIGHT SIZE FOR ALL
Great product. Works like described. Fits all of my pans. Highly recommend.
David you mentioned today that the blue was a new color, if you did your research you did that color like 4 or 5 yeas ago, my daughter has had them for years, I bought them for her.
I have two...a have a set of pots. pans with large fry pans that never came with lids.
My smart lids serves this purpose.
