Kuhn Rikon Smart Lid with Auto Release Valve
This is a great pan top. I was afraid that the glass part of the lid would always be fogged over... but not so!!.. if U push the gauge thingie on top over to auto... it makes it so the condensation from the food just drips down back in the pan.. I strongly feel that the meat that is fried under this dome is a lot more tender and juicy.... thanks
I had an old 12" aluminum universal lid that I'd had for many years. The knob on the top finally broke. When I saw this demo'd I ordered it right away. The demo says to make sure the flame on a gas stove isn't on high enough to come up the sides of the pan and possibly melt the lid but that's just using common sense. I also have a smaller sized aluminum lid that I use for smaller pots and pans and use this new one for the larger pots and skillets. It works great!
This cover solves the splatter problem. I recently renovated my kitchen and did not appreciate grease splattering all over my kitchen before buying this cover. It works great while still allowing the the food to brown.
Received this a couple of days ago and used it last night. I was using a larger pan and could not find the cover that goes with the pan. I put the smart lid on and it was perfect. I did not have to dig around for the original pan cover. This also cleans up nicely too. I also got this on a clearance price which was better yet. Order one if you can. You will use it a lot.
WHAT I NEEDED!!!!
NOW I HAVE A LID THAT WILL WORK WITH MY POTS WITHOUT LIDS.
This is a nice cover would recommend it highly I use it all the time thank YOU for always having nice things
Kuhn Rikon excels in producing kitchen tools. This lid is no exception. It fits so many pots and pans and does a great job cooking meats. We did a test cook with pork chops. One batch cooked in the oven and another serving in a pan using the lid. The pan chops cooked more tender and also faster than the oven. You will not go wrong with this lid.
JUST IN TIME!!!!
I GOT THIS LAST NIGHT AND I WAS GOING TO FRY SOME CHICKEN. WELL THE LID WORKS JUST LIKE THEY SAID IT WOULD. BEST CHICKEN I HAVE MADE. (AM A GOOD COOK TOO, LOL) I HOPE THEY GET MORE OF THESE IN SO I CAN ORDER IT IN BLUE. QVC, AS ALWAYS YOU ROCK.
Great Item but . . .
It is a great item - and works well. The only problem that I did not anticipate (and probably should have) is that it doesn't work with my pans! I have a set of pans that have a lid-rest on the opposite side from the handle which gets in the way. Also, the handles on my pans get in the way of the larger lid.
It works GREAT on my cast iron skillets though, so I'll keep it.
Love this lid, it works just the way I wanted it to. Fits all of my pots even the 12" ones. Most of all, it solves a big problem, that is, having so many lids to try to store just to fit that one pot it came with. I have limited storage space so now I just take out this one and it's perfect. I could actually use another one and then just two lids would fit all of my pots!
Great cooking helper
This lid fits all the different size pans I have accumulated over the years. It works great when cooking a steak without drying out the meat. The meat is juicy and cooked perfectly on the outside. It helps food cook quickly and evenly.
The one thing to be careful about is that only use pans that have heat resistant handles, as the metal handles become very hot.
This lid fits any size pan and cooks great with the moisture.
