There are so many reasons to love this lid I don’t know where to begin. For starters, it’s a universal lid, which means you can literally use it on everything from stock pots to saute pans. (So you can finally stop obsessing over how you lost yours.)
But that barely scratches the surface of this ingenious and affordable invention. Kuhn Rikon’s Smart Lid has a silicone gasket that seals onto almost every pot or pan. Its dual-setting valve lets you trap in steam or release it automatically. Your call because, well, you’re the chef. And it can be used for everything from braising meats to steaming carrots or rice, and sauteeing shrimp or ramps. Because it’s glass you can keep an eye on your food without taking the lid off.
Did I mention it’s dishwasher safe? Too good to be true. This is one of those kitchen gadgets that you can’t say enough wonderful things about. It’s that good.
