Uses for Cookware Lids

Saving the old lids from cookware that you are getting rid of can be a good idea. Many skillets do not come with a lid or a new set may not have lids for all of the pots and pans included. And of course they can be used as cymbals by the kids! This is a page about uses for cookware lids.

Glass pot lid on white background.If you are re-doing your cookware, save the lids if they are in good shape. If not, take a good, long look at those pot handles and lid knobs. A lot of these items are in standard form and interchangeable.

I find it so annoying when I buy a set of cookware and the lids need to be exchanged between pots and skillets (as in I am either using the 6 qt pot or using the 12 inch skillet, but I can't cover both at the same time). This holds true for the expensive as well as the inexpensive sets.

@chef4u, I am a dietary manager and yes, you do use a cover for skillets. It could be a safety hazard not to use a lid when frying. Hot grease can cause a terrible burn if it pops out of the pan and someone is at the stove top, also when grease pops out of an uncovered skillet and it splatters on another stove top eye that is on, it could cause a fire.
