Kuhn Rikon Smart Lid with Auto Release Valve
I bought two of these as my pan set didn't come with covers to fit all of the pans. I love them. AND they really do work as described.
Did not fit
Because the handles on my cookware sit above the rim the lid would not fit any of my pans. This would be a great product for those with the right set of cookware but for me,I had to return it.
If the handles of your pots are set high (like all clad), the lid won't fit.
Just what I needed.
This lid is perfect for my frying pans that had no lid. It seems to fit everyone. Keeps my stove top clean and works exactly as demonstrated with the automatic steam valve. Very happy.
This item doesn't work with any of my skillets. The handle angles up and doesn't allow the lid to fit.
I have a gas stove and you just need to be careful flame is not so high. Does the job. Fits all pans, allows steam to escape. Definitely a good find at a great price.
Not like "as seen on tv"...not for gas ranges
I was so disappointed after I read the instructions....not for use on a gas range unless its 6-7 inches away because of the silicone. It seems to be nicely constructed, just a waste of money if I can only use it on my stock pot. Its going back......kinda resent having to pay the return shipping since the item should have been described as great for electric ranges not for gas.
whatch where the handles are located on your pots
this lid is curved downwards.so, if the handles are located to close to the lip of the pan this lid will not seat properly causing the lid not to work. check your pots for handle location before buying. the lid is well made but only works on some pots. I sent mine back because it didn't work for me
Perfect lid for Pan Roasting
I love this lid. I have used it for chicken frying and mostly pan roasting of chicken. I have a gas stove and even though it is not recommended, I have never had a problem with this lid and it has maintained its integrity. I suppose if you had it very close to the open flame, it could cause a problem, but I can't imagine a scenario that would expose the lid to the open flame.
For pan roasting, It is perfect. I have finished steaks and chicken in the oven at 350 with the lid on it.
Great help in kitchen
Just just used lid for first time, its great. Its like the great old Tfal lids but you can see your food! I love it. Please provide more silicone kitchen products, especially in this great color.
I have had this lid for about two months. It's great. Fits my fry pan perfectly. Use several times a week. No problelms. In fact I have gotten rid of another lid that I used, but never really fit very well. Yes, I have a gas stove. You watch what you're doing. No safety issues as far as I'm concerned. Great lid with a release valve.
Perfect Solution to an age old Problem
This is the perfect solution. I don't ever have to search for another
lid. My dutch oven lid works on my skillet. But what happens if
you are using both? The Smart Lid happens, Problem solved!!!
